WWE Payback 2017: Match Order Predictions

8 of 8


Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman

This is an absolute no brainer. The argument can be made that these are the two biggest stars on RAW right now. With the absence of WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar, this match is the way to go. Roman Reigns is coming off possibly retiring The Undertaker at WrestleMania. That is something that had only been done by Lesnar before Reigns became the two in 23-2.

This seems like a pseudo-No. 1 Contender’s match. Strowman’s been on a roll with a loss against Reigns at WWE Fastlane being the only blemish on this record. Reigns challenged then-WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31 and never got a one on one rematch following Seth Rollins cashing in Money in the Bank. Ultimately, there is just too much star power between these too. And on a show with no world champion scheduled to appear, it’s really the only logical main event.

How do you see the card shaking up?
