WWE Payback 2013

Sunday, 16th June 2013


John Cena (c) vs. Ryback


Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio

Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk


"The Shield" Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns (c) vs. Randy Orton & Daniel Bryan


Wade Barrett (c) vs. The Miz vs. Curtis Axel


Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Kane


Kaitlyn (c) vs. AJ Lee


Damien Sandow vs. Sheamus


To be honest, I think that they could have built the Divas Championship match between Kaitlyn and AJ Lee better, but it could be that this will be the start of a series of matches between the two and that the further build will be handled better.

Good to see Axel get the win like I was expecting, I had worried for a moment that they were going to give the title to The Miz instead.

Good to see AJ win the Divas Championship too, but I still think that it should have been built up to better than it was. When Kaitlyn broke down, I thought it was only a matter of time before Kharma's music would hit and she would come out to destroy her - obviously no such thing happened though.

The US Championship match was the result I expected too, except for it being via Count-Out. I thought it would end up being a clean pin instead.

Though it probably shouldn't have been, the video hyping the return of Rob Van Dam at Money In The Bank was a surprise. It makes sense to have his return there though, as he is a former winner. I would assume that it means that he will be involved in one of the Money In The Bank matches.

The repeated shots to Dolph Ziggler's head got a bit uncomfortable to watch, as I'm sure that another concussion could have been easily caused - though unintentionally of course. It seems to me from all this though, that they have switched alignment on both men, so that Ziggler would now be a face and Alberto Del Rio a heel.

It makes sense though, as people love to cheer Ziggler and less people are interested in Del Rio unless it involves saying his name along with Ricardo Rodriguez.

Pretty much what I expected from The Shield too, no surprises there.

For the Cena/Ryback Three Stages Of Hell match, it was always obvious that it was going to come down to the Ambulance match as the deciding match, but I have to admit that I didn't expect them to take apart the ambulance in the process, so I think the ending of Ryback going through the roof was a good finish.

Triple Threat IC title match surprised me. i didn't expect it to be as good as it was. really enjoyed it.

Diva's title match also surprised me. it was actually one of my favorite matches on the show. it's nice to see two good ladies in the ring and with a actual storyline.

Ziggler vs Del Rio was a bit hard to watch but at the same time was really good and was exicuted really well for what they ewere going for.

The rest of the show was just okay. nothing really noteworthy.

Not really excited to see RVD back beings he's proved to me that he has lost so many steps within the last few years. I can't recall him ever having a great TNA match although he was put in the position to have many of them he just isn't who he used to be.
