Last night's WWE Payback pay-per-view, despite all of the unfair tactics, was an amazing match.
Seth Rollins pulled off an unbelievable victory over three very game opponents in Randy Orton and Seth’s former Shield partners Roman Reigns and the odds on favorite Dean Ambrose.
Had it all
During the match up, the fans did see a very short-lived Shield reunion as the three former teammates triple power bombed Randy Orton through JBL, Lawler and Cole’s announce table, only to see Seth be decimated by his other opponents.

The match did have mass interference by not only J and J Security, but Kane as well. Kane had, over the last few weeks leading up to the final moments before the match, made Seth believe that he was on his own, only to make his presence felt all throughout the match, virtually making it a four-on-three.
At one point, the WWE fans did see Seth Rollins get double power bombed on the Spanish announce table only to then have Kane double power bombed twice on top of Rollins, the second time causing the table to explode. This made the match Dean Ambrose versus Roman Reigns for a couple of moments.

The two men looked each other in the eye before returning to the ring approvingly after surveying the carnage they had caused seconds prior.
Roman said a very Rocky style line to Ambrose: “Loser buys all the beer.” Dean obliged and headed into the ring. The two men squared off in what would have been a very great one-on-one affair with Roman Reigns nearly scoring the pin, until Seth Rollins broke up the three count.
Eventually though, it turned into Randy Orton vs Seth Rollins. Randy would deliver an RKO to Kane, almost delivered one to Seth who managed to evade it and scored the victory with, of all moves, Triple H’s pedigree.
Seth Rollins emerged victorious, but at what cost?
Kane did his duty to the authority by allowing Seth to walk out still champion. In fatal four way rules, there are no disqualifications, so the interference by J and J and by Kane was allowed.
What will happen on Raw? What will we see happen at not only Elimination Chamber on May 31st, or even at Money In The Bank? Both events have always had unpredictable outcomes.
With everything now slowly building towards the 2015 SummerSlam event, especially with the potential for Brock Lesnar’s long awaited rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, the question is now this, who will be champion come SummerSlam and who will have the briefcase going in?
