Main Event at WWE Payback; Reigns vs. Strowman to be Pushed Back?

  • At WWE Payback on 4/30 in San Jose, the projected main event is going to be Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt in a “House of Horrors” match for the WWE Title. There is some question on whether WWE will add the Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman match to the card or whether they will hold off on it until the next Raw event in June.
  • In the scenario where they push the Reigns vs. Strowman match to June (and likely explain it by the injuries suffered by Reigns on Raw), the company would then come back in July to have Brock Lesnar face Strowman.
  • The other uncertainty is if Reigns is indeed kept off TV for “injury” purposes, whether WWE will also pull him from house shows as he was being advertised on every Raw live event as the headliner.
