I mentioned before that there were several people who've beaten the tag champs in the past few weeks. Another person besides Dean Ambrose to do that has been The Anomaly, Ryback. Ryback has seemingly had his own issues with both The Shield and Hell No, but it's The Tag Team Champions who've been the focus of his rage lately. (Spoiler Start,) Having knocked off Daniel Bryan first, and then Kane on this weeks taping, Ryback looks to be on a roll as he heads into his Last Man Standing match with John Cena at Extreme Rules. (Spoiler End)
That said, something that's not done very often could help Ryback down the line. People have rightly called that Ryback has lost far too many big matches in his short career and it appears likely he'll lose at Extreme Rules. So perhaps a good way for him to quickly rebound would be, the very next night on RAW, in a display to prove his dominance, Ryback challenges both members of Team Hell No for the WWE Tag Team Titles in a 2-on-1 Handicap match. Perhaps after some shenanigans involving The Shield (and maybe a little failed help in the form of Cena to set up another Six-Man match at Payback,) Ryback walks away with not one, but two belts.
The next few weeks can see him beat the likes of 3MB, Team CoBro, some jobber teams, The Usos, Primo/Epico, etc before being called out by Team Hell No for their rematch at Payback. Of course, just to mix things up, we could see The Shield step in to assist Ryback. It may seem odd, I know, but think about this. Ryback has a twisted mentality and in some sense, I could see Ryback respecting The Shield for making an impact the way they did and accepting their assistance to even things up, as John Cena steps up to help Team Hell No.
This sets up the main-event for Payback. Team Hell No and John Cena vs. Ryback and The Shield.
As an added bonus, we can go with one or two stipulations.
- One could be, if Ryback or anyone pins John Cena, they will get the WWE Championship. If anyone pins Ryback, he'll lose his titles to the person that pinned him.
- An alternate stipulation could be simply for the tag teams in this match, in a losing team disbands match. If Roman pins Daniel Bryan that's the end of Hell No, and if Kane pins Dean, The Shield dies.
This would be a great way to end Team Hell No without anyone turning heel if it's not needed or, if WWE really thinks it's time, to end The Shield (though I doubt that would be the case.)
