Welcome to WWE Payback, the most anticipated WWE Network special event of May… or at least Top 3. Maybe. In this corner, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins! In the opposite corner, the job of the Big Red Machine and the Devil’s Favorite Demon and the Director of Operations and the Demon Kane! Kind of. It’s WWE Payback!
The throwaway of all throwaway PPVs, this year’s WWE Battleground seems more than usual a warm-up for SummerSlam. The main event focuses on John Cena’s continued reign as champion as he barrels towards Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam but perhaps more importantly the rise of Roman Reigns. We know Cena retains but how will WWE protected Reigns? Will he stand tall at the end or get lost in the shuffle?
We’re officially back to calling these bad-boys pay-per-views (Special Events didn’t work) but I can’t help but feel like this Sunday’s Payback is sub-PPV. This may be the reality of post-WWE Network PPVs, but I think this is bad booking and a horribly promoted PPV in any era.
