WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
TRIPLE THREAT MATCH
THE UNDERTAKER VS JOHN CENA (C) VS BATISTA
The complexity of the World Heavyweight Championship has been turned upside down with the influx on new top leveled stars coming into Friday Night Smackdowns, being the World Heavyweight Champion has never been so challenging. John Cena competed in a fatal four way match at Extreme Rules which saw the Undertaker, CM Punk and then World Champion Batista square off in a ladder match. Batista has won his championship in a hard fought battle at Wrestlemania 30, taking it from Ryback, at the Extreme Rules PPV his title reign was short lived after John Cena snuck in a took the title from the ladder whilst the other three men were distracted.
Batista’s attitude immediately changed as he felt that he was robbed of his championship due to the fatal four way stipulation, Batista wasn’t involved in the ending of the match and straight away wanted his “Payback”. Batista began to be on a personal vendetta to earn his championship back from John Cena, even going as far as brutally attacking Cena post match on Smackdown. The championship began to haunt Batista as he started getting frustrated with losses going against him and he has been unable to build momentum heading into the PPV.
On the other hand, The Undertaker a man that was also in the Extreme Rules PPV match, has begun dominating the Smackdown locker room. The Undertaker has begun forcing his way into title contention with a huge victory over the World Heavyweight Champion John Cena on Smackdown four weeks ago and since followed it up by beating the number one contender Batista on Smackdown two weeks ago. Since his comeback to the WWE Undertaker has continued to be impressive and has proven that he deserves his place at the top of the pedestal on Smackdown.
John Cenas career revival has come into fruition after a poor start to 2014. John Cena has turned his career around by winning the World title at Extreme Rules and since then has continued to ride his momentum heading into Payback. John Cena has proven that he deserves his main event spot here on Smackdown and looks to be back to his best now on the blue brand. However, with the stigma around his victory that it was a ‘fluke’ or ‘right time right place’ type of victory rather than Cena deserving it, John has a point to prove at Payback to the WWE Universe fans.
The champ has his work cut out for him coming into Payback, two of the greats in Universe Mode are looking to take the title away from him, can John Cena overcome the vicious Animal in Batista and the phenom Undertaker?
