- As of this week, Ryback is not scheduled to win the WWE Title from John Cena at Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view. The whole idea behind the Three Stages of Hell match is that it will be used as a vehicle to get Cena over big for the summer.
- The Payback card was changed over the weekend. WWE announced Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan vs. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns on RAW but as of last Saturday, the plan was to do a Bryan vs. Orton singles match.
At last word, Bryan is still scheduled to be part of the WWE Title picture in July and August of this year.
- On a related note, it’s possible we see two heels turns at Payback, one with Bryan and the other with Chris Jericho.
