WWE Payback 2017 Results: Highlights, Analysis, and Grades

1 of 11

Follow along with our review of Sunday night’s WWE Payback pay-per-view.

On Sunday night, the WWE Payback pay-per-view will be here. It’s taking place at the SAP Center in San Jose, CA, and is a Raw-exclusive show. This isn’t quite owned by one brand, as two SmackDown Live stars will be playing.

The main event of Payback hasn’t been announced, but it could come down to two matches: Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns or Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton. Both aren’t for titles and one has a stipulation unlike anything seen before.

Strowman vs. Reigns has happened before, taking place at Fastlane and on Raw. There’s no stipulation for this match, so it won’t look different than their previous encounters. However, the winner of this could move into the Universal Championship picture, a title that’s absent from Payback.

Wyatt vs. Orton is a House of Horrors match. We don’t know what that entails, but all the answers will be found out in the potential main event of the evening.
