Gimmick Match Being Discussed for Daniel Bryan at Payback, Backstage Reaction to Batista’s WWE Status

Nick Paglino

According to The Wrestling Observer, the main event for WWE Payback on 6/1 is up in the air pending Batista's status with the company following Extreme Rules.

Vince McMahon wants a Daniel Bryan vs Batista main event at Payback, and it's being said Batista's decision to possibly take time off after last night has left officials not happy with potentially having to change the main event plans for the PPV.

It’s being said if Batista does in fact plan to take time off following Raw tonight, then the likely Payback main event will be Daniel Bryan vs Kane in a Buried Alive Match. This is why WWE had Kane rise at the end of their match last night, to leave the door open for the possible Payback match. As of now, Batista is scheduled to appear on Raw tonight.
