First of all,
RIP to Chyna and Balls Mahoney.
Two wrestlers who entertained us during the late 90s/early 2000s.
I breakdown what to expect at Payback.
Give it a listen at link above.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Roman Reigns vs AJ Styles
WWE made lots of money for WrestleMania 32. Records were shattered selling merchandise & gate at AT&T Stadium & also the all time attendance record for a WrestleMania. 101, 763 to be exact. WWE also realizes that after all of these injuries that occurred (Cena, Rollins, Cesaro, Orton) just to name a few, it is time to build future stars.
Raw has been doing a great job pushing certain characters and also calling up wrestlers from NXT. AJ Styles has wrestled all over the world. Although it did not make sense for him to lose at WrestleMania, it has been fun finally having AJ Styles in the WWE. What better guy to try to get Roman over than AJ Styles! TNA, New Japan, the guy has wrestled everywhere. Do I expect for AJ to win? No.
However, WWE has something brewing with the arrival of Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows and Finn Balor losing the NXT title a few nights ago. There has not been so much speculation about a faction reuniting since DX or NWO. Roman will walk out of Payback champion. However who will align with who? That is the most intriguing part.
WWE Intercontinental Championship
Miz vs Cesaro
Austin, Cena, hey even myself have been advocating to #PushCesaro
Happy to see that is finally happening.
They guy looks like Jason Staham out of the Transporter. So why not run with it and he has. Cesaro has been on fire and picked up where he left off in the fall.
For the Miz, I agree with guys from Chair Shot Reality that The Miz does better when he is with someone. He feeds off their energy (Morrison, Sandow, Riley, Maryse). I expect Cesaro to finally grab brass ring. It begins with winning the Intercontinental Championship.
I just don’t think it will be at Payback. I think Cesaro should chase until at least Money In the Bank before capturing the championship. It is always better when the face chases for the championship.
WWE Women’s Championship
Charlotte with Flair vs Natayla with Bret
These two had an awesome feud in NXT. I don’t like that Becky Lynch or Sasha Banks after failing to capture the newly christened Women’s Championship at WrestleMania, they are an after thought.
At least have a 2nd feud for the Women.
Natayla is great but I feel that Sasha should the one chasing. I expect Sasha to have her moment at SummerSlam in Brooklyn and win the Women’s Title from Charlotte.
#1 Contendership for WWE Tag Team Championship
Vaudevillians vs Enzo & Amore
I love that finally WWE is stressing Tag Team Wrestling again. I’m just afraid that a team like Ascension or Vaudevillians gimmicks work in NXT but can’t translate to main roster. Look at Adam Rose, Bo Dallas, Ascension. All great in NXT but can’t translate to main roster. It is not all their fault but still.
I don’t expect New Day to lose for a while after selling the most merchandise WrestleMania weekend. However, I expect a great tag team title match.
Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens
I have nothing bad to say about this feud. It doesn’t hurt either man. It has translated well from NXT. I expect a great match at Payback. I wouldn’t be surprised if it got personal for extreme rules or even money in the bank in June.
Sit back and enjoy this one.
Chris Jericho vs Dean Ambrose
I understand that Dean wanted to kick it up a notch at WrestleMania vs Brock Lesnar but WWE management held him back. I expected Dean to step up at WrestleMania, push character to new heights. I don’t know, I just expected more from Lesnar bout. Maybe it was cut short to give Roman Reigns vs Triple H more time? Who knows.
His feud is now with Chris Jericho. A true professional, loves to work with the younger talent. Although, he put Fandango over at WrestleMania 29 but defeats AJ Styles at WrestleMania 32? I still puzzled over that. Anyway, I expect this to be a great feud for Dean and hopefully maintain him in the main event. Barring any injuries, Dean will have another opportunity to be the man. It just will not happen for now.
Give the show a listen. Link above.
Thanks for reading !

Ending to Samoa Joe vs Finn Balor last night.
According to http://www.wrestlezone.com,
Samoa Joe defeated Finn Balor to become the new NXT Champion.
I heard referee threw “X” sign after Balor rolling ankle. Samoa Joe is champion one minute later.
Also following trends on Twitter, it looks like it may be a work. He stood up at end and was able to bow to crowd.
Bullet Club coming ??

We are all hyped about the Royal Rumble tonight. We are on the road to WrestleMania. After shoveling for 3 hours and CPU being still down, what do I do? Write about the rumble tonight.
Here are some of the surprise entrants in my opinion for tonight’s Royal Rumble :
Daniel Bryan-The Yes man. Had his moment at WrestleMania 30 and won the WWE World Heavyweight Title. One year later won the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 31. Due to concussions and neck issues has not been able to return. After being cleared by yet another doctor earlier this week, can the yes man return ?
AJ Styles-2016 has been the year of great free agent acquisitions for WWE so far. With speculation of Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson coming next month, Nakamura reporting soon to NXT, Austin Aries making his debut on Friday, can the Phenominal One make his debut tonight. Last night was the Bullet Club version of the Curtain Call sending off AJ Styles last night. Hopefully he is a surprise entrant.
Jake the Snake Roberts-One of the greatest of all time. Saved by DDP, being inducted in the Hall of Fame, we love watching Legends make a return to the Royal Rumble. With the Resurrection of Jake the Snake documentary doing well on ITunes, I wouldn’t be surprised if he made an appearance.
Scott Hall-Another man saved by DDP, has gone through so much. Inducted into the Hall of Fame. Would love to see the man that Oozes Machismo just one more time in the Royal Rumble. Is he going to win, no. However, it will be a great pop and would be great to see him do the Razor’s Edge just one more time.
Josh Bredl-The Winner of Tough Enough 2015. Tons of heat for comments made about Social Outcasts on Twitter recently. Wouldn’t be surprised if he made an appearance in tonight’s Royal Rumble match. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets some stuff shots from some of his colleagues as well for his Twitter comments. Be careful with what you post/write on social media.
Finn Balor-This is a stretch. Royal Rumble is in Orlando. NXT Performance Center is in Orlando. How much of a mark out moment would it be to see Balor & Styles in a WWE ring together. Especially if they work together. Speculator galore if Bullet Club has arrived in WWE. Or Not and as adversaries, speculate Bullet Club vs Balor Club. Crazay!
Enjoy the event everyone ! Hopefully WWE learned from their mistakes in 2014 and in 2015 booking of Royal Rumble matchup.
Lastly, if you are in the NYC area and want to watch the Royal Rumble with hundreds of Wrestling Fans. Head to Legends in NYC. Will be a great time!
