A big change might be needed for the Intercontinental Championship match at Elimination Chamber, as news has now leaked that Rusev was injured during the Smackdown taping on Tuesday. He worked a match against Ryback. The Bulgaria born wrestler was spotted in a wheelchair, while wearing a cast on his right leg and holding crutches. WWE has not made an official announcement in regards to the situation yet.

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.

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.

WWE revealed that Daniel Bryan might not be healthy enough to work his scheduled match against Wade Barrett at Extreme Rules on Sunday night. A replacement match was being discussed, and rumors are now saying that it will be a match between Bray Wyatt and Ryback. If Bryan is healthy enough to work, then the pay per view proceeds as normal. Wyatt would then get his much needed big win at Payback the following month.

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.

Since WWE does not have anything written in stone for Roman Reigns right now, they are going to be stalling his push at Extreme Rules. He'll definitely get a match on the pay per view because they want him to remain in front of the cameras. However, it will more than likely just be a filler segment. The talk right now is that he will be teamed up with Ryback, and the two of them will face Big Show and Kane in a tag team match.
