WWE Payback 2014 Results – John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt, The Shield vs. Evolution

We get a video package that details the more recent history between John Cena and Bray Wyatt, setting up the next match.

Back in the arena, Justin Roberts briefly explains the rules of a Last Man Standing Match before the lights go out, and Bray Wyatt lets Chicago know that they’re here. Wyatt makes his way into the arena to a sea of cell phones lighting up the arena as Bryan, Harper and Rowan make their way toward the ring.

We get a few dueling ‘Let’s go Cena’/’Cena sucks’ chants, before John Cena’s music hits, and the man himself makes his way out to his trademark mixed reaction.

    Betting Rusev wins? at least its been on some one not black the last time. Back to business. Love Big E hope better for him.

  • kingdook24

    Looks like The Brotherhood is officially over. Lame.

  • kingdook24

    Bo-lieve time. Looks like it’s jobbing time for Kofi Kingston.

    • kingdook24

      Or worse… just get beat down by Kane.

  • kingdook24

    Stephanie McMahon. How can someone so hot… be so bad? LOL.

    • Xavier

      Amen too that

    • Trapdoor

      My first thought was “What a gross colour of dress.” Which was immediately followed by “DAMN!” & then a very cold shower.

  • kingdook24

    DANIEL BRYAN TIME!!! Here we go…

  • kingdook24

    Well… now what?

  • Mandy

    Brie finally delivered in tonight’s segment, loved the way she got in Steph’s face and said she quit and then slapped her. I’ve been waiting for this. It was a smart way to let Bryan hold onto the belt for the time being, I also love that he is still a part of WWE PPV despite not being able to wrestle

    Got to love Stephanie, she makes being bad look so good! I love her as a heel!

  • kingdook24

    My prediction is at Money in the Bank, DB defends the title against Kane in a rematch with the stipulation being if DB wins, Brie gets re-hired but he loses, either he doesn’t get another shot at the title or he’s fired.

    Or if he’s not able to compete, he must forfeit the title or be fired. Because I really don’t know if he’s able to compete or not. What is his status anyway?

  • kingdook24

    I expect some swerve in the Cena/Wyatt match. Both have a victory over each other but in my eyes, this rivalry may be over regardless of who wins/loses, but my opinion – with Wyatt being the emerging star, he needs the win more than Cena. I don’t think it would hurt Cena to lose this match, but then again… what happens after this match? Where do they go from here?

  • kingdook24

    Am I hearing things or did I actually hear a “THIS IS AWESOME” chant in a Cena match?!!!

    About damn time people. Stop booing this dude. Cena is a workhorse, and he & Bray are giving us an exciting match right now.

  • kingdook24

    Bray’s been out way past 10 seconds but with the Wyatts/Usos interfering, the ref doesn’t see him. Lame.

    As exciting as this match is, I would’ve liked to just have Bray & Cena fight.

  • kingdook24

    OMFG!!!! HARPER WITH A SUPERPLEX TO ONE OF THE USOS OUTSIDE THE RING THROUGH TWO TABLES!!!

    • BigMike

      Harper/ Eli Cottonwood is a beast… he can get it done in the ring he always does very well… He deserves his own props ALOT, and IMO he helps with Bray’s push even more

  • kingdook24

    WYATT AND CENA THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!! WOW!!!

  • kingdook24

    AA THROUGH A ROAD CASE!!! AND CENA PLACED ANOTHER ROAD CASE ON TOP OFF THE CASE WYATT WENT THROUGH!!!

    IT’S OVER!!! #nevergiveup

    • Scott

      Not speakers….road cases for equipment

    • kingdook24

      Edited. Thx, Scott. Sorry – I was too busy going crazy over here. LOL

      • Scott

        Hahaha! No disrespect. They were fake roadcases though. If they were the real thing, Wyatt would REALLY be hurt

  • kingdook24

    Shield/Evolution better bring it because Cena/Usos/Wyatts has been the Match of the Night. Period.

    • Xavier

      Agreed

  • Xavier

    IWC backlash in 5, 4, 3, 2…………………………………..

    • Scott

      Hahahaha I know right! Although it was done in typical Super Cena fashion. Hope it doesnt hurt Wyatt too much

      • Xavier

        It won’t hurt him at all. THis feud already did wonders for Wyatt.

        • kingdook24

          ^ This. Though I felt Bray probably should’ve won it, I’m glad Cena, as a fan, did win.

        • Scott

          I agree 100% but we know what usually happens to people that are fed to Cena…..lol

          • Xavier

            It didn’t seem to hurt guys like Edge, Orton, CM Punk, Umaga, Great Khali, Big Show, Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle or Triple H

          • kingdook24

            Khali, I think, it did. LOL.

          • Xavier

            Khali won the title after feuding with Cena,

          • kingdook24

            Eww… I forgot about that. Yikes!

    • Avalanchian

      Hell I just saw an amazing match. Bray loses no momentum at all. He is just no longer a god is all.

      • Xavier

        I agree, but you know how some smarks can be

        • Avalanchian

          If anything this match causes more heat for Cena. Wyatt still gonna have a huge following. Usos and Rowan and Harper got some face time to become even more popular.

          • kingdook24

            Not too sure – I think the reason booking had Usos/Wyatts interfere because they were being cautious of the crowd being pro-Wyatt & since Cena was booked to win, and if the crowd WAS indeed pro-Wyatt, THAT would’ve been bad.

            But actually – the crowd was mixed. At one point, there was a “THIS IS AWESOME” chant. I hope this proves that though Cena is NOT in the main event right now, he still carries WWE.

  • ldb

    I think Cena had to win this match. The booking was tight and it keeps his “streak” alive. Bray still looks strong to me

  • Scott

    JBL just said bury and Bray Wyatt all in the same sentence…..

  • kingdook24

    Cena/Usos/Wyatt totally made me forget we had a Diva’s Championship Match on the card.

  • Scott

    Alicia Fox needs to hang with Adam Rose for a few days….

  • ldb

    I hope Paige wins. she is the hottest diva that can actually wrestle. She’s the porcelain lioness, the white Tigress.

  • Scott

    Paige and Sheamus should open up their own tanning salon or form a mixed team called Whiter Shade of Pale

    • kingdook24

      Wow.

  • kingdook24

    Good win, Paige. That match was actually decent.

  • kingdook24

    YOU TAPPED OUT!

  • Steve pritchard

    Wwe creative has to be on drugs or something . That finish to Cena/Wyatt was the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. No wonder cm punk decided to hang it up .

    • kingdook24

      What did you expect?

      • Xavier

        Classic IWC reaction, why even bother lol

  • Scott

    This honestly feels like an episode of Raw so far minus the Cena/Wyatt match

    • Xavier

      Sheamus/Cesaro was pretty good I thought

      • Scott

        The match was really good dont get me wrong, but I just cant take the Sheamus character seriously anymore. Really wish he would go full blown heel

        • kingdook24

          I kinda agree. Sheamus definitely falls in line with people who are hurting with WWE combining the WWE & WHC titles. They strapped with the US title but Sheamus is, or was, a main eventer. He needs something.

    • kingdook24

      Well, it is a B PPV. The only thing we should expect is maybe 2 good matches & maybe 1 or 2 swerves to continue or end storylines.

  • Scott

    Really hoping for a good match with Shield/Evolution!

  • BigMIke

    as good as Bo might be, he is drawing NOTHING from the crowd….. he should turn his Bo-Lieve into a part to join with Bray(( IRL Brother)) and become Bo Wyatt, true brother of Bray; they do look so much alike

    • kingdook24

      I heard “We Bo-Lieve” chants tonight.

      • BigMike

        I was meaning the last couple weeks since he was brought up; he gets very little reaction….. like Diva- Dead kind of reaction

  • Scott

    Batista think hes Allen Iverson or something?

    • Xavier

      Lol

    • kingdook24

      I’m saying, right? LOL!!!

  • kingdook24

    That is ALOT of Blue, Batista. ALOT… of Blue.

    • Scott

      SMURFTISTA!!!!!

  • kingdook24

    Shield.

  • kingdook24

    Okay. Evolution loses… Batista takes his time off… then what?

    -or-

    Shield loses… they look weak, lose momentum… Batista takes his time off… then what?

    • Avalanchian

      Shield wins. Hunter costs his team the match. On Raw Batista and Orton confront HHH and take him out (fake injury off tv) and claim he did nothing but hold them back from their goals. Batista leaves for his movie stuff. Orton goes back to wanting the title back.

      • kingdook24

        Ugh. Orton in the title picture again?…

  • kingdook24

    I may be jumping the gun… but I think Cena/Wyatt should’ve closed the show.

  • kingdook24

    LOL. Batista tried to tag in the Shield.

  • kingdook24

    Three Amigos by Rollins. RIP Eddie… RIP.

  • kingdook24

    Boo-Tista chants. Fans will never forget or forgive the Royal Rumble.

  • kingdook24

    LMAO!!! #Bluetista is trending right now on Twitter. LMAO!!! I’m done…

  • Scott

    I think Batista is shaken up there

    • kingdook24

      He’s busted open, too. On the bridge of his nose, I think. HHH even went to check on him to see if he was good.

  • kingdook24

    Man, Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins are just too beast.

  • kingdook24

    Eww… Pedigree to Rollins on the chair outside…

    • kingdook24

      Eww… DDT to Ambrose outside…

  • kingdook24

    So… Roman Reigns is a slave now? Getting beat by 3 kendo sticks?

  • Xavier

    This six man tag match has dragged

    • kingdook24

      I was saying that earlier it had a slow start… but it’s picked up. Cena/Wyatt should’ve ended the event.

  • BigMike

    Reigns is good and getting better every time, Rollins is insane with the spots and Ambrose is just, awesome lol…………… we breed them crazy in Cincinnati lol…. Pillman, now Ambrose lol….. AMbrose and Orton is a no DQ match would be, IMO just what Orton needs right now to bring some fire back

  • Scott

    Looks like HHH brought out his shovel for this occasion

  • kingdook24

    OMFG!!! SETH ROLLINS HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!! HE IS INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CROSSBODY OFF THE TITANTRON!!!

    • Trapdoor

      Let’s be honest: It was off of the partition in front of the ‘tron (so level with the bottom of it) not from on top, like his crowd dive (last PPV). With that said: The fact he trusts those 3 to cushion him & even more impressively, the fact those 3 are willing to let him land on them in such a way, says a lot.

  • Xavier

    Doesn’t this PPV end at 10? They cuttin it close

  • kingdook24

    Oh, Thank God Batista was eliminated first.

  • kingdook24

    Old Faithful… HHH’s Sledgehammer.

  • kingdook24

    PPV over. Shield with the clean sweep. HHH may be fined for that Sledgehammer hit to the head on Ambrose.

  • Xavier

    Triple H puts over The Shield AGAIN, I thought he didn’t put people over lol

    • kingdook24

      Shield 2, Evolution 0. Now what? Back to making Bryan’s life miserable?

      • Xavier

        Good point, I thought Evolution would go over here setting up a rubber match. Not sure where it goes from here

        • Avalanchian

          Hopefully my theory.

          • Xavier

            What would that be

          • Avalanchian

            Orton and Batista take out HHH in the ring at raw blaming him holding them back from their goals. Batista can do his movie thing. Orton back in the hunt for a title.

      • Xavier

        Say bro, you should join this wrestling group I started up on FB awhile back.

        https://www.facebook.com/groups/thatswhatwedo/

    • Splat

      DB and then The Shield. I got to give it up to HHH. He is doing what is best business.

      • Xavier

        And Benoit, Batista & Cena in 3 straight Manias. Triple H has been putting over people for years now. The whole Triple H buries people talk is a silly myth

        • Trapdoor

          What impresses me the most with this is how Orton is helping put over The Shield (& the moves he’s willing to let them do on him). Says a lot.

    • Alain Alfred Corpuz

      The shovel is starting to get rusty after all

    • Cubed56

      nah not anymore, he shined it up real nice and gave it to cena about 5 years ago, lol

      • Xavier

        Lol here you go

  • Scott

    I take it back…….HHH put them over clean!

  • stoney

    I guess Triple H has passed his shovel on to John Cena lol

  • kingdook24

    For a B PPV, this was actually pretty decent. Only thing is that the event raised more questions about storylines whether if they ended or if they’re gonna keep going.

    DB keeps the belts, Brie quits, slaps Stephanie. Now what?
    Shield beat Evolution twice. Now what?
    Cena won the 2nd of 3 matches with he & Wyatt. Now what?

  • Xavier

    KINGS IN OT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Suck It Punk lol. Cali stand up

    • Cubed56

      i won a nice little pile of cash from some co-workers tonight also with that Kings w

      • kingdook24

        Congrats.

        • Cubed56

          thanks man

      • Xavier

        Nice. How much?

        • Cubed56

          $250

    • Nick k

      At least Punk handled it with class, Rangers in 5.

  • kingdook24

    Watching the Payback Fallout, I absolutely loved the Shield’s body language at the press conference. Ambrose had his head down on the table almost the whole interview like he was asleep, Reigns looked battered, and Rollins looked content.

    I hope this was just a part of the interview, but Reigns said he felt like he tore his triceps. Hope there’s no serious injury to any of these guys. We have DB out already, can’t afford any of these three.

  • Sylvir

    The booking of Evo vs S.h.i.e.l.d was perfect, imo anyway. The story of the old dogs that reigned over the yard for a very long time, taking it to the new hounds who laid claim while they were away. The pride and ego of the elders being their downfall as they could have put it away at time but insisted on teaching the younglings a lesson, only to have their egos and pride be their downfall.

  • Ryan

    this PPV way WAYYYYY better than i thought it was going to be

  • tonyhost

    I’m happy with what is there
