WWE Payback Results (6/1) – Last Man Standing, Evolution vs Shield, Does Bryan Surrender Title?

Bill Pritchard

Bray rolls outside but Cena lifts the steps and launches them right at Bray's head, knocking him down but somehow Bray makes it back up at a nine count. Cena goes back after him but Bray hits Sister Abigail on the floor, then Cena pulls himself up on the barricade so Bray kicks him in the stomach. Cena whips Bray knees first into the steps, then he goes for a powerbomb but Bray backdrops him on the steps and follows with a running senton on them. Bray hits him a few more times but Cena surprises him with an Attitude Adjustment, then Harper and Rowan run back in and attack Cena before helping Bray up.

The Usos run back out to make the save, and Jimmy avoids a fallaway slam, putting Rowan through a table, then Harper takes Jey out with a superplex through some tables on the floor. Cena goes for another AA but Bray floats over and spears Cena through the barricade, then they fight into the crowd and end up near the pyrotechnics area. Bray sets some pyro cannons off and climbs an equipment case, but Cena AA's him through it, then tips another rolling crate over it, effectively locking Bray inside, and the ref counts to ten.

Winner – John Cena

BP: This was entertaining from the start, and didn't disappoint. I was surprised how much time the match got, but it deserved to be an all out brawl. The Usos, Rowan and Harper's roles were appropriate, and we got some really good spots and a good finish that wasn't corny. 

Divas Championship
Alicia Fox vs Paige (c)

Alicia tries to pull Paige through the ropes but Paige hits her with some forearms, then she suplexes her in from the apron and gets a near fall. Alicia hits Paige a few times and puts her in a straightjacket choke, then she drives her knees into Paige's back and tries to make her tap. She hits a backbreaker and follows with a second for a near fall, then she charges the corner but Paige comes back with some clotheslines. Paige hits her and pulls her off the ropes, slamming Alicia's head off the mat before making her tap out to the Scorpion Crosslock. Postmatch, Alicia flips out and screams for the fans to be quiet, then she runs backstage.

Winner – Paige

BP: This was OK. It was short and had a lot to follow, but featured some good offense by both women.
