PAYBACK 2020 Matches

Bayley and Sasha Banks (c) vs. Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax. Tag team match for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship

OUR PREDICTION: SHAYNA BASZLER & NIA JAX
WINNER: SHAYNA BASZLER & NIA JAX

RATING: 6/10

RECAP: Bayley and Banks were in control most of this match. Baszler and Jax argued during the match but closer to the end, they realized that they can win the match. Lots of near falls and fast paced action. Jax even looked good as she was in the ring with three great wrestlers. Baszler won the match for her team by making Bayley tap out.


Apollo Crews (c) vs. Bobby Lashley (with MVP and Shelton Benjamin). Singles match for the WWE United States Championship

OUR PREDICTION: APOLLO CREWS
WINNER: BOBBY LASHLEY

RATING: 6/10

RECAP: A good opener with a lot of run ins by Shelton Benjamin and MVP. Apollo Crews still looked good in the match but did not stand a chance against Lashley especially when he has help in his corner. Lashley won the match with the Full Lashley and made Crews tap out. A good opener with a surprising moment tonight.


“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Roman Reigns (with Paul Heyman) vs. Braun Strowman. No Holds Barred Triple Threat match for the WWE Universal Championship

OUR PREDICTION: ROMAN REIGNS
WINNER: ROMAN REIGNS
RATING:
7/10

RECAP: At the beginning of the match, Roman Reigns didn’t come out and just left Wyatt and Strowman going at it all around the arena. There were weapons and they even ended up breaking the ring. After that, Reigns came out and signed the contract to be in the match. He brought a good fight and pinned Braun Strowman to win the championship. A good match to close off the show.


Keith Lee vs. Randy Orton

OUR PREDICTION: KEITH LEE
WINNER: KEITH LEE
RATING: 9/10

RECAP: Keith Lee won the match after a shorter match than expected. Keith Lee had an amazing showing in probably the best match of the night. Keith Lee won the short match with a Spirit Bomb. Keith Lee got a clean victory over Randy Orton in his debut which is huge moment for Lee.


Dominik Mysterio and Rey Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins and Murphy

OUR PREDICTION: DOMINIK MYSTERIO & REY MYSTERIO
WINNER: DOMINIK MYSTERIO & REY MYSTERIO

RATING: 9/10

RECAP: A great match showing great team work between both teams, all four men looked strong and very fast paced. Murphy took the pin in this match as expected after a 619 and Frogsplash from Dominik Mysterio. A very good showing for Dominik Mysterio and hopefully he finds a new feud soon. 


Matt Riddle vs. King Corbin

OUR PREDICTION: MATT RIDDLE
WINNER: MATT RIDDLE

RATING: 1/10

RECAP: By far the worst match of the night, Corbin is not that great in the ring and even Matt Riddle could not carry the match. Corbin attacked Riddle before the match and also had control throughout almost the whole thing. Riddle won the match after he hit Corbin with the Floating Bro. Hopefully this feud ends soon.


Big E vs. Sheamus

OUR PREDICTION: BIG E
WINNER: BIG E

RATING: 2/10

RECAP: A slower match but still enjoyable, got a bit boring at times but good enough. Big E won the match with the Big Ending. The match went a lot longer than expected. Hopefully this is the end of this feud and both wrestlers can move on to something else.
