The big dog Roman Reigns wins Universal Title at WWE Payback Pay Per View and it seems that its just the beginning of the new era of Roman Empire. Sasha Banks and Bayley split seems to be more evident after the result we got tonight in the Women’s tag team title match. Matt Riddle gets his first main roster PPV win over King Corbin. Keith Lee showed pure dominance over legend killer Randy Orton. The most interesting thing we have noticed is that Alexa Bliss is showing signs of a character change and she might be paired up with Bray Wyatt in the coming days.
