Possible match for The Wyatt Family at Payback

On the first Monday Night Raw after WrestleMania 32, the League of Nations had another match against The New Day, this time for the WWE Tag Team Championship.

They had defeated them previously the night before at The Showcase of The Immortals, but this time around, it was the current champions that won and retained their titles, much to the disappointment of the League of Nations members, Sheamus, Rusev, Alberto Del Rio, and King Barrett.

The Celtic Warrior blamed Barrett as the weak link in the team, as he believed the British superstar was stopping the team being powerful. After The British Bull Hammer was removed from the ring, The Wyatt Family then came down and attacked the remaining members of the League of Nations, and stood tall.

Recently, The Wyatt Family members have been advertised as the cover stars for the Payback advertisements, and their possible match at the event could be against the League of Nations after what unfolded on Raw last week, and what has been mentioned in this week's Raw preview on the WWE website.

The preview says: "After laying out their so-called “weakest link,” King Barrett, The League of Nations suffered an even worse beatdown courtesy of The Wyatt Family, who made short work of Sheamus, Rusev and Alberto Del Rio in a startling show of force on Raw.

"Following that attack, are Bray Wyatt and his flock poised to engulf the international trio? Wyatt is The Eater of Worlds, after all …

"Regardless, it’s doubtful that even the presence of Raw guest star Dr. Phil will be able to help either of these factions find peace with one another this Monday night. WWE Universe, brace yourselves."

So it looks like we're going to be getting Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan, and Braun Strowman vs. Sheamus, Rusev, and Alberto Del Rio for the May 1 WWE Payback pay-per-view at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

There was speculation that The Wyatts would be feuding against Brock Lesnar after WrestleMania 32, but Bray Wyatt has said they will eventually be meeting at some point later down the line. For the time being, he and the rest of The Wyatt Family looked to be preoccupied with the League of Nations.

Both teams need a good result at Payback if they are to be built as powerhouses, but if the rumor of The Wyatts feuding with Lesnar later this year are true, they need to be built as the stronger team, so that they realistically have a chance against The Beast when they potentially meet later this year.
