Major change to WWE Title match at Payback?

WWE.com is making no mention of the House Of Horrors match between WWE Champion Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt being for the title at WWE Payback. Other matches on the card that are for a title, however, do mention that the belt will be up for grabs.

It’s also worth noting that announcers on both RAW and SmackDown Live have not mentioned the WWE Title being on the line either. Could the match be a non-title bout?

    Oh I agree don’t know why the put the title on Brock Lasner at all. The WWE Universal title should have been between Kevin Owens vs Y2J. Yes they move Kevin Owens to Smackdown an thank goodness. But the feud between Owens and Y2J deserve much higher on the WM card.

    I don’t mind the part time wrestler but putting any title makes it meaningless.

    To early to say the Shake up was good or bad. Payback just some unfinished feuds. I believe Raw and Smackdown will be doing very well by time the new stuff begins.

    I would hope that that is the reason they have removed the title match stipulation.

  • Chad Boswell

    Of course it is non-title or they would have been all over it on Smackdown. They kept saying Randy would defend vs Jinder at Backlash.

    Next one will definitely be better but this is pretty lame for the ppv after mania. The card looks so bland and could be so much better. Reasons like this is why Brock should not be champion. Probably won’t be defending the belt until Summerslam.

    Everything has just gotten progressively worse on Raw and Smackdown ever since Mania and then the “shakeup”. And the sad thing is I don’t see it getting much better.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Yeah doesn’t look good at all plus not much of a build up to the PPV. I believe the next Raw PPV will be better.

    This ppv just looks worse and worse each day. Not saying that the WWE title needed to be on the line but the fact that there is no world title match sucks the energy out of the event. Almost a guarantee there will be no title swaps.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    They need to have Bray Wyatt win this match now. Put the guy over so he can be the top heel on Raw because damn it Raw needs a great heel right now.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I told you the WWE title was not on the line. If you watch Raw and Smackdown the WWE title on the line is never talk about. You would have thought if the WWE title was on the line Smackdown will being making it how important it is Randy Orton walk out of Payback the WWE champion.

    Must be a specialty match, like a street fight? But not like the hardcore title where you could pin someone and win on the sidewalk…

    Well seeing as they said that Jinder is #1 contender to fight Orton for the title, kinda proves they have removed the title from the match.
    Like the whole Jericho/Owens stipulation of whoever wins goes to SD, WWE has realised that the result will be obvious if the title is on the line. If the Owens stipulation was not made you would know that Owens is winning because they are not going to allow both the US and IC title to both me on RAW, and the same with Orton vs Wyatt. You know Orton would win as they would not be having both main titles on RAW.
    They had painted themselves into a corner and have had to cover their backsides.
