In less than four days, WWE will be hitting the shelves with their latest premium live event, the WWE Payback 2023 and the predictions are in full swing. However, this event has somehow been marked devoid of proper hype like the others and somehow the matches that have been booked at the moment, well, they haven’t been great either.
Well, still the matches that have been booked so far, let us quickly try and predict what can be the possible results of the battles coming up in the latest PPV that is all set to rock the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburg. Here are the predictions of the matches.

Seth Rollins is the obvious favorite to retain the championship against Nakamura. Expect all sorts of craziness and battles between the two and with the kind of grappling these two can bring to the platter, well that is crazy. But at the end of the day, Seth Rollins should walk away with the championship.
Winner – Seth Rollins
#2 Becky Lynch vs Trish Stratus in a steel cage
The rivalry that has started since the night after WrestleMania is still to find a conclusion and what better than a steel cage match-up between the Man of the present and the gorgeous woman of the past will go head-to-head. However, given the steel cage match, WWE may think of finishing things off with Trish Stratus being given a hellacious farewell.
Winner – Becky Lynch
#3 Rhea Ripley vs Raquel Rodriguez
Despite Raquel being a decent match-up for Rhea Ripley, yet both of them knows it very well that the kind of form that Rhea is in, she won’t be losing the title. Both the wrestlers will be fighting out their hearts but at the end of it all, Rhea will prevail.
Winner – Rhea Ripley
#4 Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs Finn Balor and Damian Priest in a Steel City Street Fight
With the WWE tag team titles on the line, KO and SZ will be going head on against Balor and Damian Priest. Well, without giving it a thought this match will be secured by KO and SZ which will in turn accentuate the rift between Damian Priest and Finn Balor.
Winner – Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn

Rey’s sudden run as the championship is obvious to take a longer run than a couple of weeks as you can expect it. And hence, after an exotic match-up, expect Rey to walk away with the title around his waist.
Winner – Rey Mysterio
#6 WWE Payback 2023 Predictions – LA Knight vs The Miz
This is one fight that is probably going to be the unexpected. However, as things stand, with the current run that LA Knight has just started, in all likelihood, Knight should be the ideal winner of this war.
Winner – LA Knight
