WWE Payback 2020 Pay-Per-View Online Results Predictions Spoilers Review
WWE Payback 2020 Spoilers

Universal Championship No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match: Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns

It's too obvious to just have Reigns win the title right away, right? Surely, WWE will try to milk this a bit more by having Braun Strowman take another pin from Wyatt so they can stretch it out and do a singles match between Reigns and Wyatt at Clash of Champions, at least.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns is winning that title either here or soon after.

United States Championship Match: Apollo Crews (c) vs. Bobby Lashley

This is the match that should have happened at SummerSlam.

PREDICTION: Bobby Lashley wins the title.

WWE Women's Tag Team Championship Match: The Golden Role Models (c) vs. Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler

Curious why they're going with Jax and Baszler, instead of Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott. I guess they're following the typical WWE model of only caring about the tag titles if there's a singles feud within it. That way, they can have a transitional reign and when they want to split Jax and Baszler, they'll fight and they can hit us with the incessant "You know, they were tag team champions together and now they're fighting!?" stuff.

PREDICTION: Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler win the titles.

Keith Lee vs. Randy Orton

Keith Lee is amazing (outside of his generic ass new music and stupid ring gear). Randy Orton's doing the best work he's done in years. If I hadn't already JUST seen this match on Raw THIS WEEK, I would be a lot more into it. Still, these two are good enough to overcome the hurdles WWE is putting in front of them. Here's hoping they don't make Lee a stepping stone for Orton to get another title match with Drew McIntyre.

PREDICTION: Randy Orton wins.

Dominik and Rey Mysterio vs. Murphy and Seth Rollins

Rematch after rematch after rematch. They just did this on Raw and they had a non-finish so they could do it again. I don't care.

PREDICTION: The Mysterios win.

King Corbin vs. Matt Riddle

They had to do this. If they had spent this long waiting and skipped ANOTHER pay-per-view, it would be beyond ridiculous. I've talked about this feud (and many others) enough over the past 2 months where I have nothing else to say, really.

PREDICTION: Matt Riddle wins.

Big E vs. Sheamus

We've seen it and we've seen them in a tag team match. This match has no extra stipulations or gimmicks to make it interesting. It's just literally the same match we've seen before, but this time, you've seen it. I like both guys, but WWE has to stop with this "that....again....my job is done." mentality.

PREDICTION: Big E wins. Or Sheamus wins. It doesn't matter.

+ possibly more matches TBA they might add at literally the last minute on the day of the event in some fashion via The Bump or the kickoff (annoying)

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 8/28/2020)

Here are some matches I can imagine WWE booking on this card:

  • Jeff Hardy defending the IC title (maybe in a rematch against AJ Styles or against Sami Zayn)
  • Maybe something with Heavy Machinery and The Miz and John Morrison
  • Tag team titles on the line?
  • Maybe MVP and Shelton Benjamin against Ricochet and Cedric Alexander?
  • Aleister Black vs. Kevin Owens

This page will be altered to reflect newer opinions whenever new information about this and surrounding events takes place.
