WWE Payback is right around the corner, and as is the case every single year, we’re all coming down with the Mania blues. The Orlando extravaganza was one of the best editions of the Showcase of the Immortals in recent memory, and as such there’s a lot of pressure on Monday Night Raw to keep the momentum going.
Some would argue that the hype has already died down once again, but we’re already on the road to SummerSlam; and as such, there’s a lot to be excited about heading into this show. There are title matches, potential babyface and heel turns, and even a House of Horrors match – which none of us even remotely understand.
Still, it’s always nice to think of the many possibilities heading into a post-Mania show like this as they usually knock it out of the park more often than not. As such, we want to let our minds wander to a place where the impossible is indeed possible: although we’ll never allow ourselves to believe that John Cena is going to turn heel.
So with all that being said, here are five twists that can happen at Payback. Disclaimer: there’s a solid chance that none of these actually take place.
#1 The Family strengthens
It’s fair to say that The Wyatt Family have experienced more than their fair share of problems over the years, and as of late Randy Orton has been a massive thorn in their side. So huge, in fact, that their credibility has pretty much been shattered once again, following The Viper’s victory over Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 33.
Obviously, the return of Erick Rowan has helped to a degree, but something is missing – and that something is Bo Dallas. During the House of Horrors match at Payback, we’d like to see Bray’s real life brother Bo return and finally join The Wyatt Family as the uncontrollable psycho. It’d be a story that makes sense, and the back story is there to make it work long term.
Why Sasha why?
