ZWrestleTalk's WWE Columnist Dom Bouchard grades WWE Payback
Baron Corbin VS Dolph Ziggler
Very slow start, not necessarily the kind of performance that will warrant a heavy push for Corbin. Dolph worked hard to make it competitive. Very cool reverse powerbomb on the outside of the ring by Corbin. Ziggler rolled up Corbin for the upset. Well kinda...
Kalisto VS Ryback
Kalisto should be thankful Ryback caught him outside the ring! The Big Guy doing the CM Punk "It' s clobbering time" was very cool. Ryback is so underrated and Chicago is such a wonderful crowd. This match deserved to be on the main card. It was a very exciting match resulting in a Kalisto upset.
Grade B +
Enzo and Cass VS Vaudevillains
Awesome match! Then what we feared Enzo got a serious injury. Pray for Enzo.
Sami Zayn VS Kevin Owens
Awesome contest! It is hard to get back into the groove. This could be the match of the year,and what a tremendous feud with two extraordinary talents. Back and forth until the pop up power bomb.
The Miz VS Cesaro
Another fantastic match and The Miz is a wonderful heel. Cesaro dominated until Sami and KO interfered and Miz rolled up The Swiss Superman.
Dean Ambrose VS Chris Jericho
As you would expect between these two fierce competitors. This was a very good action filled bout and very evenly fought until the dirty deeds winner the lunatic fringe
Charlotte VS Natalya
Good back and forth action.Natalya was really over with the Chicago crowd.Montreal screw job take 15.This sucks big time.We are talking about a new era and here they dig up old Crap . like that
Grade: Match C Ending F
AJ Styles VS Roman Reigns
The main event delivered a very enjoyable match with two very different wrestlers. Phenomenal forearm from the top rope through the announcing table. Roman counted out ? What??? Shane restarted the match as a no count out match. Roman then got disqualified for a low blow. Stephanie restarted the match as a No DQ. Very hard hitting brawl plus Gallows and Anderson attacked Roman. Almost a three count and Roman kicked out. The Usos came out to attack Gallows and Anderson. A Spear by Roman finishes AJ.
