John Pollock & Wai Ting review WWE Payback 2020 featuring Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman vs. The Fiend for Universal Championship and Keith Lee vs. Randy Orton.

Despite taking place just one week after SummerSlam, Payback featured several major storyline developments including a new Universal Champion being crowned, a major upset involving a recent NXT call-up, and perhaps the best submission finish you’ll see this year from Shayna Baszler. Plus, we discuss a bizarre storyline development for Matt Riddle, the continuation of Big E’s singles push, another fantastic performance from Dominik Mysterio, and the PPV ending at 9:32pm!

Plus, your phone calls and feedback from the POST Wrestling Forum.

That Shayna finish with Sasha strangling Bayley was, as John said, clever AF and badass. Way too clever for WWE, if I can be cheeky. Best finish to a match this year, hands down.

Nia and Shayna could be like Sisters of Destruction. They should keep the titles for a long time.

Wasn’t Money In The Bank 2020 a shorter show?

Also Roman Reigns should not lose the belt until Wrestlemania where Big E (Who won The Royal Rumble) wins it

“Chances. I have had to earn everything I’ve been given in life and still they’re taken from me…but you, you’re the golden goose…your chances are unlimited. You’re untouchable.” -Bray Wyatt from the Firefly Fun House Match.

Dammit it’s tough not to feel for Bray Wyatt just a bit.

Remove Cena insert Reigns and the story remains the same.

Wyatt’s best hope I think is to evolve into the conscience of the WWE. The voice of the voiceless through creativity. How great would it have been if the Firefly Fun House music interrupted the HHH anniversary garbage as an example.

But until he can get to AEW, my guess is that Wyatt will continue to be reigned in…and in more ways than one. And that is a shame.
