On Monday Night Raw, WWE set forth the story line where Lana was dumped by Rusev, only to fall into the arms of Dolph Ziggler. The two shared a kiss in the middle of the ring that generated a really good reaction from the audience.

In what felt like a filler match at Payback, Adrian Neville was able to pick up a victory over Wade Barrett because the latter walked out of the ring and purposely never came back.
