With WWE Payback kicking off in less than three weeks, here are a list of predictions that are making the rounds on the internet. Some of the information is confirmed, while others are just for pure speculation.
Based on developments from the previous Extreme Rules, there will be a number of rematches. At the end, WWE fans should expect at least four title matches.
John Cena vs. Rusev
After Rusev lost to John Cena at Extreme Rules, WWE revealed that there is going to be a rematch at Payback. The Bulgarian Brute recently vowed to make Cena say, "I quit."
According to Bleacher Report, WWE confirmed that this is the last match that will settle the Cena-Rusev feud. The publication also believes that crowd-pleaser Cena is not likely going to lose. However, Rusev will definitely stay strong even in defeat.
Daniel Bryan Out Due to Injuries
Bryan has made somewhat of a comeback after recovering from neck surgery earlier this year. He has made appearances in Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania 31.
Even so, this has not stopped WWE from pulling Daniel Bryan from every event he has advertised for including Payback. According to Nick Paglino at Wrestle Zone, Bryan may be out anywhere between one to two months. The wrestler has already missed last night's Raw and this week's Smackdown. There is no official confirmation from WWE regarding when Bryan will be back.
Tag Team Championship
There is no doubt that The New Day will show up at Payback 2015, after they won the Tag Team Champions at Extreme Rules. The real question is who The New Day will face at Payback.
One theory indicates Tyson Kidd and Cesaro, the duo who lost to The New Day earlier. Knowing WWE, there will definitely be a rematch at some point in time.
A second theory, by Sports Skeeda, suggests The New Day vs. Lucha Dragon. The publication believes that WWE will schedule a New Day vs Kid and Cesaro rematch with The New Day being the winners. If this prediction happens, The New Day and the Lucha Dragon may face off at Payback. It remains to be seen whether this suggestion will pan out though.
Nikki Bella may win the Divas Championship, according to predictions by Randall Ortman at Cageside Seats. However, Naomi who recently turned heel may have a shot for the Divas championship. There is a chance for a Naomi-Paige rematch, after Naomi defeated Paige earlier.
