Payback 2016 Predictions

Chicago is the destination for WWE Payback as Chris Jericho clashes with the Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose, while Roman Reigns defends his WWE Championship against crowd favourite AJ Styles.

AJ Styles overcame three men to earn a surprise WWE Championship shot as the Phenomenal One looks to dethrone Roman Reigns and win his first WWE Championship.

With the added flavour of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson thrown into the middle of this, is Styles working with his former colleagues or is Styles in for a blind side?  I would like to see a major swerve but WWE don’t really do surprises any more.

I was expecting a twist when Roman Reigns won the WWE Championship at WrestleMania but nothing came to fruition. There is a chance here for Reigns to align with Gallows and Anderson and finally turn heel, but I won’t hold my breath.

Whatever happens in this match there is only one way I can see this ending: Roman Reigns retaining the WWE Championship and I expect the “I’m not a bad guy, I’m not a good guy. I’m THE guy” guy to hold onto the gold for a long time.

Prediction: Roman Reigns


Dean Ambrose vs Chris Jericho

Dean Ambrose has hijacked the Highlight Reel and Chris Jericho is far from happy, as the six-time world champion looks to teach the Lunatic Fringe a lesson.

This has certainly been one of the better fueds coming into Payback and I must say Chris Jericho has still got it. He’s the perfect heel and can talk the talk, insulting his opponent and the fans each week.

However, Dean Ambrose is very much holding his own in recent weeks against the first-ever Undisputed WWE Champion and the Ambrose Asylum has been an added quality to his character and I hope it’s set to stay around.

They have certainly brought us entertaining promos in the past month but now it is down to the action. I think this is only the start of this fued and I expect Ambrose to gain victory in what should be a great match.

Prediction: Dean Ambrose
