    Maybe it will be a return to the compound for the house of horrors match, Matt Hardy can be a creative consultant on the match. Most likely gonna be poor though and Bray will of course lose while Orton will meander foward to his next challenger. Maybe they can build to someone like Nakamura at Summerslam if AJ & Owens are going to be in the US title scene for a while.

    Maybe Finn dressed as the Demon will appear and cost Bray Wyatt the match

    Orton vs Styles is touted for Summerslam i think

    If the "House Of Horrors" match is anything like that match Jericho & Ambrose had, then that's the rain check match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,720 ✭✭✭johnnyryan89


    Give me the chamber of horrors over the house of horrors any day.

    Obv as Brock is not contracted to appear at Payback than they had no choice but too add a SmackDown world title match to the ppv

    The world title picture at the min is a bit of a mess

    Two Smackdown title matches; Orton and Owens.

    Does the 30 day rule not apply to Brock as Raw's world champ :p


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,787 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Do you want to be the one to tell him he has to relinquish the title? :)

    The 30 day rule only seems to apply when someone is injured or if it's convenient for a storyline

    So basically what that's saying is we want Bray to go over to make him look strong going into his feud with Finn but we want Orton and the belt to remain on Smackdown. Can see Minded and the Bollywood Boyz getting involved costing Orton the match to make their feud more interesting.

    no i want the demon finn balor to appear and cost wyatt the match but i can see the indian (think there actually canadian) lads costing orton the match

    Im not sure does Finn even remember Bray Wyatt challenging him because he was half out of it at that stage lol


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,976 ✭✭✭✭Neil3030


    Finn got a fairly lucky win against Curt Hawkins on Monday, so I'd really like to see them go into a best of 7 series to determine who the better man is. That one could go all the way to SummerSlam if they built it properly.

    Why would Finn, a face, logically interfere in this match? Dont get your hopes up on that one buddy :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,729 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    So this is tonight

    Can't see anything major happening unless wwe are messing with us and y2j actually wins the us title but then loses it on raw or SD next week

    Can't see Reigns losing either but if Strowman is going to be no 1 contender at gbof there going to have to make him look strong also

    Wud love to the see the demon balor cosy bray wyatt the match vs Orton but they might be going with miz vs balor going by the kick off show

    Wonder will we see the ceasro/sheamus heel turn after Harydz beat them and they try and shake there hands

    Good to have a ppv on for the long weekend


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Completely slipped my mind that this was on tonight/tomorrow morning.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    I'm half debating staying up for this. There's nothing I really am dying to see on, but I might just. For old times sake


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,838 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    I'll probably watch it, and more than likely fall asleep half way through. They'll probably have a couple of turns or screwy finishes just because it all looks a bit predictable. Sasha to cost Bayley the title is my prediction.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,113 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    The card is good.

    Just feels second rate a few weeks after Mania as that heavily featured so many part timers who are not there now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,611 ✭✭✭✭ERG89


    Rematches to cold Mania matches that nobody asked for & you haven't built up effectively doesn't drum up much interest. Even on Smackdown Owens & Orton are already in their next feud.
    Joe vs Rollins has been flat too. The Kingslayer is incredibly dull & I haven't openly looked forward to a Samoa Joe match since 2007, sorry but he's well past his best imo.
    Braun vs Reigns could be a good brawl but this show is a B show they hope will over deliver.

    Only tuned in a few mins ago entertaining enough segment but I really don't want to see Balor vs Lesner but doubt it will happen yet prob be miz vs balor or wyatt vs balor


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,628 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    A million potential angles for Finn at once, Vs Wyatt, Vs The Miz, Vs Brock, hooking up with the rest of the Club. Speaking of whom were they on the pre-show already vs Enzo & Cass? I didn't watch anything prior to Miz TV

    Yeah The Good Brothers were already in action.

    ?????

    Shocking


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,628 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    Well that was unexpected Y2J takes the title to Smackdown before going to Fozzyland


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,079 ✭✭✭The Ayatolla


    Absolute classic with Jericho and the kid with the list.

    He really is the GOAT.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Wasn't expecting that at all

    So is owens still on sd


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,729 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009

    Will prob lose it on Tuesday night and maybe kayfabe injured


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,332 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    That was kind of smart. We know he's dropping the title on Tuesday now so people will tune in to see how that goes down.
