Card doesn't look too bad. Evolution/Shield and Cesaro/Sheamus are going to be awesome for sure. RVD/Barrett can be good, just like Cena/Wyatt (although I don't really have high hopes for the latter, but who knows). Divas match is just there.

S'all about that Hair vs Mask pre show :P
Naw I really want to see Sheamus/Cesaro though; that RAW match with ADR was very good and I'm not even as big a fan of ADR as I am Cesaro. I think Cesaro has the same if not more potential to put on a better match with Sheamus than that especially it being a PPV match and all.

Bahaha that was like the first few actual pieces of text in the post and I completely didn't even notice. Good eye, sniper!

Quick question, I didn't imagine the stipulation that the losing team has to disband did I? I was pretty buzzed Monday and thought I heard something like that mentioned during RAW.

It's wasn't an actual stipulation HHH was just saying that the Shield will be decimated and fall apart. I'll go watch it back and make sure but I believe that's what I heard.

Alright, haha I was a bit worried because I don't think Shield should go away just yet and I want Evolution to last through the summer at least.

Well it's been confirmed for sure now that the RAW after Payback is Batista's last show for a while... he starts press junkets the end of next week... so something needs to happen in order for Evolution to continue... as far as The Shield... if Evolution doesn't continue I see no reason to keep them together. They've already battled the Wyatts and Evolution.. there's no other competition for them.. and now that they are supposedly face they aren't going to be working for the Authority and randomly attacking people. I think it's about time they broke up and the individual pushes start.

I could see the Shield breaking up especially if they lose and when Batista leaves, although I'm a very optimistic person about that disgruntled superstars stable that was rumored a few months back, without the Shield in the Authority's way that would make room for all of the screwed over superstars as of late to start shit. Then it all comes down to what you said about having to replace Batista or doing something like that in order to keep Evolution going.

This is interesting..

In the latest issue of WWE Magazine, Shield member Dean Ambrose takes part in a fan Q&A session, and one of the questions asked is if there was any WWE Superstar that could make Ambrose laugh. Below is Ambrose's response:

"My former partners Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. I was probably the class clown of the group so I'd usually start the joking and ribbing. But those two are hilarious. Daniel Bryan is funny too but more because he's funny looking."

Multiple sources state that this indicates that either WWE has accidentally spoiled future storyline plans involving The Shield before they happen or that this particular Q&A session was set up back when original plans called for a possible Shield breakup before those plans were nixed.

Wow, yeah that's very interesting.. I wouldn't put it past WWE to accidently spoil future storylines though, they did similar by promoting Y2J as a current wrestler :emoji_slight_smile:

According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, WWE Magazinepromotes Jericho as a combatant in an upcoming Money in the Bank Ladder Match, with that pay-per-view set to air June 29 at the TD Garden in Boston.

You don't think Ambrose will join Evolution do you? I highly doubt it, just making conversation prior to payback haha.
If any members of Shield were to jump ship then Ambrose would be the prime candidate.. he is the most heelish of the 3. But I don't see what it would accomplish.. Ambrose could possibly break off and then Rollins and Reigns could feud with HHH and Orton.. that could work for a bit. To be honest, I just hope the whole landscape of the WWE changes after Payback. Shake things up a bit!

That actually makes a bit more sense, I wonder what Dean will do if/after he splits.

Card is absymal. If this was before the Network, I'm sure this PPV would receive one of the worst buyrates WWE have had. There are only two draws (Evolution/Shield & Cena/Wyatt) and they are both rematches, with little on the line at Payback. The Chicago crowd is going to bury it after that brilliant RAW they had a couple of months ago. Vince deserves the bad Network buys and poor TV deal, judging by the current product.

That WWE magazine Shield thing is fake btw.
