WWE Payback 2023 Results

Steel Cage Match: Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus

RESULT: Becky Lynch won by pinfall.
THOUGHTS: It took a bit to get started. Once it did, it was better than I had anticipated. Good job on both. They did some spots I wasn't expecting and I enjoyed the Manhandle Slam off the top rope finish. Thumbs up.

LA Knight vs. The Miz — special guest referee John Cena

RESULT: LA Knight won by pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Fun enough segment for me. Nothing too crazy awesome, but it got the job done.

Singles Match for United States Championship: Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Austin Theory

RESULT: Rey Mysterio retained by pinfall.
THOUGHTS: It looked like something was going on with Rey tonight. He was off a step from his entrance all throughout the match. This was slower in moments it shouldn't have been, had some sloppy parts to it and just wasn't all that generally impressive or meaningful since obviously nothing happened other than Rey retaining after a needless rematch.

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship Steel City Street Fight: Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens (c) vs. The Judgment Day (Damian Priest and Finn Balor)

RESULT: The Judgment Day won the titles by pinfall!
THOUGHTS: This was a very fun match. I enjoyed it a lot. Granted, I'm not sure I'd go with Priest and Balor as the tag champs, as I don't love that they're already well into a few months of tension and NOW they're winning the titles, but this is WWE. They love that story more than anything else in this division. So that's not too shocking. Owens and Zayn look strong in their loss by The Judgment Day needing 3 other people to help them. Clearly, Sami and Kevin have no friends willing to help them out, though.

Grayson Waller Effect with Cody Rhodes

RESULT: Cody announced that he used some of his stroke backstage to get Jey Uso as the newest member of the Monday Night Raw roster.
THOUGHTS: Huh? Okay. The crowd popped huge for it, but I'm curious what this story is all about.

Singles Match for Women's World Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Raquel Rodriguez

RESULT: Rhea Ripley retained by pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Meh. It was fine. I wish the crowd was more into it as that would have helped, even though we all knew Raquel wasn't going to win.

Singles Match for World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

RESULT: Seth Rollins retained by pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Rather standard match. Good, but not groundbreaking. Thumbs up overall for a B-level pay-per-view and the C-tier world title in a rushed feud where you knew the outcome before the match was even officially made.
