The road to Payback on June 1 has been a bit of an uneven one.
While the show's top two matches have been set in stone seemingly since the night after Extreme Rules, the undercard has been a jumbled mess.
At one point, it looked like Daniel Bryan would defend his WWE title against Kane in any number of special gimmick matches. A neck injury to Bryan necessitated changes to those plans.
Rob Van Dam looked poised to face Cesaro in the continuation of a feud that intensified 24 hours after Extreme Rules. Then Cesaro split off and began a program with new United States champion Sheamus. Van Dam, on the other hand, won a Beat the Clock Challenge match to become No. 1 contender to the intercontinental title held by Bad News Barrett.
Alicia Fox and Paige wrestled several matches against one another before Fox snapped and beat Paige in a non-title bout. Fox will likely compete for the Divas Championship at the pay-per-view.
With the show finally taking shape following the May 19 episode of Raw, here is a look back at the best and worst moments on the bumpy, at times uneven, road to Payback.
