1. Good News For Braun Strowman
As we noted before, Randy Orton will not defend the WWE Championship against Bray Wyatt in their “House of Horrors” match this Sunday at Payback 2017.
This means that it won’t main event the PPV and a Raw match will main event the show. The match that is expected to headline the show is Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman. This will be Strowman’s first ever WWE PPV singles main event (the closest he has come to headlining a PPV was at FastLane 2017 where he was in the co-main event with Reigns).

– Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman
