Roman Reigns, AJ Styles Combine for Classic Match: WWE Payback 2016 Results, Highlights, Fallout


Here are the full results from the card:

  • Kalisto retained the US Title over Ryback via pinfall. No idea why they’re keeping the belt on him, though.
  • Dolph Ziggler def. Baron Corbin. Silly outcome that was quite similar to the “out-smarted” angle that saw him lose at NXT TakeOver Dallas. Except he just looked like a bum in this one.
  • Kevin Owens def. Sami Zayn. Surprising clean win for KO. That’s a scary sign for Sami Zayn fans, as he is given none of the protection guys like Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Chris Jericho have received when losing to Ryback. Not good for his long-term prospects.


  • Dean Ambrose def. Chris Jericho. One of Jericho’s best matches in the last few years, some suspenseful moments that made me forget the fact that this was clearly Ambrose’s match.
  • Charlotte retained the Women’s Title over Natalya via “submission”. They did a Montreal Screwjob remix finish that resulted in Bret Hart locking up a revenge sharpshooter on Ric Flair and Natty doing the same to Charlotte. Stupid ending.
  • Miz retained the IC Title over Cesaro via pinfall. Unsurprising controversial finish brought about by a distraction rollup from Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn brawling at ringside. Look for the rematch, or maybe a fatal four-way, at Extreme Rules.
