Hello, everyone and welcome to San Jose, California and, the first WWE PPV after “Wrestlemania”! Welcome to WWE “Payback”! This is also the first PPV after the Superstar Shake-up from a few weeks ago. Let’s jump right into it and, get you those results:

  1. Enzo and Big Cass vs. Anderson and Gallows: Winners are Enzo and Big Cass!
  2. Chris Jericho vs Kevin Owens: United States Championship: Winner and NEW United States Champion and, moving to Smackdown: Chris Jericho!
  3. Austin Aries vs  Neville: Cruiserweight Championship:  Winner via Disqualification: Austin Aries but, STILL Cruiserweight Champion: Neville!

  7. Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe:  Winner is Seth Rollins!
  8. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns:  Winner is Braun Strowman!

Here are my final thoughts: The card for the night wasn’t a bad card. Although I wouldn’t have put all the championships back-to-back, but it is what it is. We have no control in the order of the matches. The House of Horrors Match between Orton and Wyatt was very innovative, and I thought it was going to end in one way, but way to swerve everyone by having Jinder Mahal and the Singh Bros.  interfere. I can’t wait to see what Smackdown does in May. Speaking of which, that will be the next time I bring you results.. in three weeks, May 21st, “Backlash”! See you then, and thanks for reading!

Bonus: Kevin’s House of Horrors Review

I gave The Final Deletion -every star that has ever existed or will ever exist in the universe. The Broken gimmick grew on me – it’s different, innovative, interesting, and just plain fun – but I still hate that match because it was silly bullcrap that turns wrestling into a joke. Wrestling requires a suspension of disbelief – it’s why we were able to enjoy watching the Undertaker for all those years even though he was essentially playing a zombie with control of the supernatural. But at least when Joey Ryan flips guys with his penis, he means it. The Final Deletion fell into the Lucha Underground category of not being wrestling but rather a production about wrestling that can’t help but feel phony as a result. The House of Horrors made The Final Deletion look like Okada vs. Omega. First of all, the Wyatts’ compound was in Florida and then Orton burned that down anyway, so whose house was this that they destroyed? Does Bray have a west coast home? The match was originally for the title and then it wasn’t with no explanation given for the change in plan. The pre-taped stuff was utterly ridiculous. It was like a really crappy horror movie. Bray dropped a refrigerator on Orton then headed to the arena in a limo. When he got to the ring, Orton was standing right behind him, so I guess the fridge was a teleporter. Or maybe Orton hitchhicked. I don’t know and I don’t even care enough about the match to attempt to fill that plot hole. Bray won with an assist from the Singh brothers and Jinder Mahal, who was a jobber until a few weeks ago and recently concussed Finn Balor, but is the #1 contender to the WWE World Championship because Vince wants to do more business in India. -∞
