PAYBACK 2023 MATCH CARD
World Heavyweight Championship — Seth Rollins (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Shinsuke Nakamura has been taunting Seth Rollins since he turned heel. Nakamura claims he knows about Rollins’ secret back injury and he vows to destroy Rollins’s back at Payback. Rollins has had a good run at World Heavyweight Champion but now, it’s time for Shinsuke’s reign.
OUR PREDICTION: SHINSUKE NAKAMURA
Women’s World Championship — Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Raquel Rodriguez
Ripley vs Rodriguez could be the match of the night if these two continue the high quality matches they were known for when they feuded in NXT. Rodriguez is one of the only challengers in the women’s division who has the size to go up against Ripley. Rhea is going to win though.
OUR PREDICTION: RHEA RIPLEY
Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship — Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (c) vs. Damian Priest & Finn Balor (Steel City Street Fight)
Damian Priest and Finn Balor are going to win the WWE Tag Team Championships tonight. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens haven’t done very much with their title reign and it’s time for the Judgment Day to take over.
OUR PREDICTION: THE JUDGMENT DAY
United States Championship — Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Austin Theory
Rey Mysterio is going to retain the US Championship tonight against Austin Theory. There’s no way WWE is going to take it away from him at this point and put it back on Theory. We think they’re gearing up for a feud between Mysterio and Escobar in the coming weeks.
OUR PREDICTION: REY MYSTERIO
Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus (Steel Cage Match)
Becky Lynch is going to win and we hope this feud is over. Possible complications could be Zoey Stark trying to interfere in the match with Lita coming to Becky Lynch’s rescue. But, in the end, Lynch will win and hopefully go on to challenge Rhea Ripley for the title.
OUR PREDICTION: BECKY LYNCH
