WWE Payback 2015: The full outline and because we should care
May 17, 2015 - WWE
WWE Payback takes place on Sunday, with not a ton of buildup over a tip dual matches. What’s more, this pay-per-view eventuality is unexpected one of THREE vital WWE events in a subsequent dual weeks, along with this entrance week’s NXT Takeover: Unstoppable and a fast announced Elimination Chamber on May 31.
Despite all that, Payback should still be flattering good, if for a 3 pretension matches alone. Of course, I’m an optimist. All wrestling fans are relentless optimists, right?
Let’s disintegrate a announced label and find out given we should caring about Payback!
Curtis Axel Damien “Macho Mandow” Sandow vs. The Ascension
What am we looking during here? Okay, this one requires a small explanation. Curtis Axel — a literal, real-life son of Mr. Perfect — is doing a Hulk Hogan gimmick. Kind of. He’s wearing a shirt that says “AXELMANIA” and doing a leg drop, during any rate. Damien Sandow is doing a Macho Man impression. It’s cute, in a way. The other organisation is a Ascension, a modern-day chronicle of a Road Warriors. So don’t adjust your set: it isn’t somehow 1989.
Why we should care: This should be a fascinating demeanour during what they competence presumably have designed for all 4 of these guys. If a Ascension loses quickly, they might not be prolonged for this world. Could Axel and Mandow be a unchanging organisation going forward? You might as good put both under-appreciated comedy guys together for now, we suppose.
By a way, Curtis Axel and Mandow are now job themselves “The Meta Powers.” That’s … flattering incredible, honestly.
King Barrett vs. Neville
What am we looking during here? King Barrett used to be Bad News Barrett, until he won a King of a Ring a integrate of weeks ago. Now he’s a king. It’s elementary math. Neville is “The Man Gravity Forgot.” He’s called that given he does absurd flips and can burst unequivocally high.
Why we should care: This is going to be a really, unequivocally good match. These dual Englishmen have faced off before, with superb results. Neville has been ripping it adult given he done a pierce from NXT to a categorical register and this should continue his trend of looking good and being treated like a vital up-and-comer.
Naomi Tamina Snuka vs. Nikki Brie Bella
What am we looking during here? Naomi is unequivocally a most-improved Diva on a register over a past year. She’s detected a new meant strain and is now aligned with just-returned champion Tamina. Nikki and Brie are twins!
Why we should care: This is a usually compare that, on paper, threatens to be a clunker, yet Nikki and Naomi are able adequate to keep things on track. This could also be a power solid in a rough. You can always wish for that
Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus
What am we looking during here? Dolph Ziggler is a flashy, assured immature male who has unexpected started sauce like he’s in Steel Panther. Sheamus is a dark Irish soldier who has recently started wearing his brave like Zoidberg. They’re both gifted wrestlers, yet they’re now feuding over any other’s butts and who is ostensible to lick whose. I’m not creation that up. This is a bottom-based feud.
Why we should care: Again, this is going to be a unequivocally good match. Just try to omit that they’re unequivocally invested in verbatim butt-kissing and we should be great.
Bray Wyatt vs. Ryback
What am we looking during here? Ah, a animal kingdom’s dual biggest healthy enemies: a Bayou cult reverend and a inspired guy. I’m not unequivocally transparent on given they’re feuding, yet it substantially has to do with a same reason Bray Wyatt feuds with everybody else, that is …
Hang on, it’ll come to me.
Why we should care: Luke Harper and Erick Rowan have started teaming together again suddenly, so it’s probable a whole Wyatt family might be re-forming, that is good news for people who like six-men tab matches and unstoppable beast factions. (Just omit that a Wyatt Family has shown itself to be a magnificently stoppable faction.) This one might finish with a large Wyatt Family beatdown of Ryback. we can dream, anyway.
WWE Tag Team Championship 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match: The New Day (c) vs. Tyson Kidd Cesaro
What am we looking during here? The new tab organisation champs The New Day are a organisation of people who are perplexing to be positive, yet a throng hates their positivity. As such, they’ve solemnly been realizing they can lie to win. Their joviality during any new underhanded find has been stirring to watch. The New Day also consists of 3 members, nonetheless any dual of them can urge a pretension underneath a Freebird Rule. I’m expecting they’ll change adult a organisation with any fall, utilizing all 3 combinations in a match. Tyson Kidd and Cesaro adore cats and headphones. They’re also wonderful, yet in a easier way.
Why we should care: This could be a best compare on a label that looks good on paper. The New Day is unexpected a explanation and one of a many interesting groups of people on a whole roster. Going adult opposite dual of a best wrestlers in a whole universe seems like a good recipe for success.
United States Championship we Quit Match: John Cena (c) vs. Rusev
What am we looking during here? John Cena loves AMERICA and Rusev loves NOT AMERICA and any male is dynamic to make a other contend a difference “I Quit” so that they can usually stop this and go combat other people. Rusev will be accompanied to a ring by Lana, who is carrying a predicament of conscience.
Why we should care: This is going to be a final section in a Cena vs. Rusev saga, that has mostly been good and has led to a Cena U.S. Open Challenge, where he goes out and tears it adult in overwhelming 20-minute matches with lesser-known Superstars each week on RAW. Sadly, this compare will substantially also underline Lana violation giveaway from Rusev. She’ll substantially dump a accent shortly and it will be a many comfortless thing that has ever happened.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Fatal 4-Way Match: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose
What am we looking during here? THE SHIELD EXPLODES and also Randy Orton is there. This is a initial time all 3 former members of The Shield have been together in a high-profile compare and positively a initial time they’ve all been in a universe pretension match. Orton is a bit of an peculiar male out here (even yet he has a strongest explain to be No. 1 contender), yet his inclusion should usually supplement to a story of a match, not detract from it.
Why we should care: Ambrose has undergone a much-needed impression reconstruction given WrestleMania and he should move a lot of power to this match. It’s also going to be extraordinary to see The Shield finally go during it, fourth member in this compare be damned. This compare should be electric and has a power to unequivocally be something special. We’ll see if it manages to broach on that promise.
