Greetings to all my wrestling NERDs reading this post right now. I decided to take the time to write about my thoughts of the WWE RAW ppv Payback. This will be a short and sweet review but there are spoilers, so if you haven't seen it yet, go to the network and watch it, Until then, stop reading this post.
Okay, I have to admit that this pay-per-view was pretty solid. The only match that didn't deliver for me was the House of Horrors match. I am a huge Bray Wyatt fan and was really left disappointed about the whole thing. It was not what I was expecting. It should have been some kind of cage match so we wouldn't have to watch limo rides or have people interfere to allow Bray to win.
That was really the only match that disappointed. I was happy to see Miss Bliss get the Raw's Women's title. Although I am a Samoa Joe fan, I was happy to see Seth win. I loved the Austin Ares and Neville match but I would have let the ending go down a different way.
Now, let me take the time to talk about the two matches I felt made the Payback ppv a success. First up, the US Title bout between Y2J and KO. It was a great solid match and I was happy to see the work both of the men put into their match. In the end, I was excited to see Owens tap out to the walls of Jericho.
My second favorite match of the night was the Hardy Boyz Vs the team of Sheamus and Cesaro. It was a brutal and exciting match. Hell, Jeff lost a tooth thanks to the Celtic Warrior. The two teams complimented each other very well which made for a great match. When all was said and done, the Hardyz were victorious but Sheasaro would have the final say.
Now, I do have an issue with the Roman vs Braun match. What was the point? I mean they each should be moving forward instead of rehashing old wars. Now they are both injured and we do not know of when they will return. If I was a writer for the WWE, I would have moved on with those two alread and come up with something else than the way it ended. Which if you saw the RAW after Payback, you know it's not over when it should be. I mean, there is too much talent in the WWE to have the same two men wrestle each other for months.
Well, that's my take on Payback. I give the ppv a rating of 8 out of 10. It was a solid ppv, it just could have used a few tweeks.
Until next time, unleash your inner NERD!
