Payback is nothing new in the world of professional wrestling, and now there is an entire pay-per-view dedicated to it. WWE Payback will take place on June 16 from Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., and the build toward it has already started.
Two matches were officially announced on Monday as John Cena will defend his WWE Championship against Ryback in a Three Stages of Hell match. Also, CM Punk will make his in-ring return against Chris Jericho. The rest of the card can go in a number of different directions, though, so it will be interesting to see how things play out.
Most fans seem to believe that Extreme Rules was better than WrestleMania XXIX, but Payback has all the makings necessary to be better than both shows. Whether or not the creative team goes in the proper direction is anyone's guess, however, the pieces are certainly in place.
While plenty of questions should be answered in the coming weeks, here are early predictions for every Payback match including potential stipulations as well as projected winners.
