In a very well booked match, Bray Wyatt defeated Ryback at Payback. Halfway through the match, the Big Guy ended up hurting himself when he ran shoulder first into the corner post. WWE booked him to fight back valiantly, which the audience got behind. Wyatt then used an exposed turnbuckle to further injure the ribs of his opponent, who still mustered enough strength to try to hit his finishing move. Sister Abigail ends the match.

Rumors have surfaced that we could be seeing the Wyatt Family reunion take place at Payback tonight. WWE set up the story with Luke Harper and Erick Rowan over the last couple of weeks. Neither guy has a match on the pay per view, so this could be how they get utilized. A reunion would give Bray Wyatt more momentum, especially since fans have been wanting the trio back together. It also protects Ryback, who will likely take the loss tonight.
