House of Horrors

Update on House of Horrors match at Payback

It appears the upcoming House of Horrors match between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt at the WWE Payback PPV will not feature the WWE Championship on the line.

The description of the match over on WWE.com only refers to Orton as the current WWE Champion and doesn’t indicate the title will be up for grabs in two weeks.

Based on the challenge issued in recent weeks on Smackdown Live, it was assumed the WWE Championship would be on the line and that no longer appears to be the case. The match was simply referred to as the House of Horrors last night on Smackdown Live.

Unseen footage from RAW

WWE has posted this unseen footage from RAW on Monday night featuring Braun Strowman and Big Show destroying the WWE ring.

  • Ryan Powell

    So now payback will be lame and not a world title defense

  • Wayne Martin

    guess Bray wins so title stays where it is

  • goddessroleplay

    So i guess Jinder wins then because of money in the bank esque shenanigans.

  • JFJ

    Jinder won’t win because Vince doesn’t see him as championship material. He’s just a filler for after Orton finishes business with Bray Wyatt. AJ Styles will challenge for the title at Summerslam.

  • unknown

    That’s one way to look at it.

  • unknown

    So Bray Wyatt can join Kevin Owens in the Never Got A Title Rematch Club.

    I mean…when jbl was champ, was he REALLY champ material? To me this feels like a repeat to that. Someone that can cut good heel promos, super beatable but wins from being a chicjen shit coward. Plus he is Indian so that gives wwe a path to that market (thats the reason great khali was around forever despite being ass).

  • JFJ

    That’s not an equal comparison. The late, great Eddie Guerrero went to bat for JBL. Eddie also helped make JBL the champion he became. That was said by JBL himself. To my knowledge, no one has gone to bat for Mahal.

    Also, Mahal is only billed as Indian. He’s actually Canadian, having been born in Calgary and attended college there. He is of Indian descent, though, and still has extended family in India.

    Still find the footage difficult to watch, more for the fall the ref took, as I mentioned elsewhere, it was pretty much a solo vertabreaker.

  • Christopher Jimerson

    That ref bump makes it ALL worth while.

    And… thank you WWE for continuing to screw over Bray Wyatt. You bust up the Wyatt Family and then you don’t even give Bray his title rematch. He’s EASILY one of the most interesting characters you’ve got on your roster and you constantly misuse him. What the hell is this House of Horrors match even for??

  • Jason Blasen

    Jinder is going to be a transitional champion to put the belt back on Wyatt. Easy guys 🙂

  • aces

    Whats the point of having a wwe champ ( brock ) that doesnt appear or wrestle ? Does Vince love throwing money that much around ? Bring back the mill dollar give away then…

  • Richie Sheaffer

    Bray Wyatt needs the win. Especially with the move to Raw. Bray loses this and he loses what is left of his legitimacy. At the same time Smackdown can’t just lose its main title to Raw. SO it’s a good bad decision
