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.

Fans attending WWE live events this upcoming weekend might be in for a bit of disappointment if they were looking forward to see John Cena and Randy Orton. The two of them have been pulled from the road. Management is going to try to supplement the show by having Seth Rollins defending the heavyweight championship against Roman Reigns on one tour. The other will be headlined by Rusev, Dean Ambrose and Ryback.

For a couple of weeks now, Bray Wyatt has been cutting some vague promos that have left fans wondering who his next mystery opponent is going to be. As of right now, the plan in WWE is to have him working a match against Ryback at Extreme Rules. That is the reason why the promo was aired immediately before the Big Guy wrestled Adam Rose. The belief is that management is feeding Wyatt an opponent to get his heat back.

During the match between Ryback and Luke Harper during Monday Night Raw last night, JBL generated a bit of controversy with some comments that he made. When Harper flew over the ropes, the commentator stated that he looked like a "zombie Eddie Guerrero", which drew the ire of the internet wrestling community, who pounced him with some negative comments through social media. Guerrero still remains very popular with the fans.

Through social media, Ryback revealed to fans that he was denied entry to a WWE live event in his hometown of Las Vegas over the weekend. He also stated that he purchased a ticket, yet was not allowed in. For clarification, this is simply a matter of him portraying his character and preserving the story line of him being fired by The Authority. The Big Guy is expected back on television soon. He is also scheduled for the Royal Rumble.

When Ryback began telling the story of his past, a lot of wrestling fans recognized it from the interview that they read earlier in the week. Many wondered if WWE would allow him to mention that Luke Gallows was the one that helped to save and change his life. Word going around is that the Big Guy actually wanted to mention Gallows when he was telling the story, but management instructed him to omit that part of the story because Gallows does not work there.
