If you haven’t seen this show so far, do it. There won’t be a better show this year with all around good matches and well told stories from start to finish – well, except there will be another NXT special this year. Sometimes I wasn’t pleased with the outcome but that didn’t take away from the quality of the matches.
In just two weeks Elimination Chamber will take place (for whatever reason). So there is little time to built the match card for it. Before RAW started I wasn’t very excited for this Pay-Per-View but after I’ve seen it a little more. We’re back with Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins 2.0 and hopefully this time with a different finish.
And all of this wasn’t really surprising for me. Despite all my speculation during the last few reviews I was pretty sure that Seth Rollins would retain his title, The Shield wouldn’t re-unite and no-one would turn heel. Anything else would have been highly surprising and illogical for a Fatal-4-Way match. And now for a detailed report on this match plus a few thoughts on the forthcoming RAW.
There were two last shows before two big special shows during the coming week. So there were a lot of promos, a little teasing and a few matches, too. A lot can happen at Payback and NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable but I’m still trying to predict the outcomes. And I try to explain it as usual with my own logic.
WWE does it again. They tease a Dean Ambrose win at the next Pay-Per-View. And Kane acts quite strange these days. And interesting as well. At least Dean Ambrose gets some decent booking now. And I try to enjoy it as long as it lasts.
But I’m not complaining about the timing this win came in the end. I’m just not sure why it was done, why Dean Ambrose was added to the main event at Payback. Because of his recent booking I’m not even able to really enjoy this because the only reason I can think of is, “to make Reigns and Rollins look strong”.
Maybe there will be a time when Dean Ambrose will be booked to his potential. But April 2015 was his low point so far in his WWE career. That’s exactly why I stopped watching WWE shows. Because they want certain wrestlers to be liked and they try with shoving them down our throats with four+ segments per show. I only started watching Dean Ambrose’s segments from April 2015 today. And this is my summary of it.
