4. Seth Rollins(c) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Randy Orton for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Payback 2015
After pulling off the heist of the century by successfully cashing in his Money in the Bank contract and winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 31, Seth Rollins faced his biggest challenge yet in this Fatal 4-Way match against his former Shield teammates, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, and his former Authority partner, Randy Orton. A great match with some good spots, such as an interfering Kane being powerbombed through a table, RKO’s outta nowhere, and a great square off between Reigns and Ambrose, but none of that compares to the amazing mini Shield reunion when Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose put Orton through the announce table with their trademark triple powerbomb. If you want to see a great multi-man match, and a cool little Shield reunion, then this is definitely the match for you.
Before we get to our final pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
Kaitlyn(c) vs. AJ Lee for the WWE Divas Championship at WWE Payback 2013
Sheamus(c) vs. Cesaro for the WWE United States Championship at WWE Payback 2014
Roman Reigns(c) vs. AJ Styles for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Payback 2016
5. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn at WWE Payback 2016
The most recent entry on this list, it was a match that one would expect when watching these two former best friends go at it, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t awesome. Two superstars destined to fight forever, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens went one-on-one for the first time ever on a WWE Pay-per view and brought their intensely personal rivalry to the big leagues. An incredible back and forth match with heart-stopping near falls, and textbook psychological warfare, the Zayn/Owens rivalry took center stage that night and definitely stole the show in front of the rabid Chicago crowd. In the end regardless of who was victorious both men proved that they are the future of WWE, and will always be sure to give the fans their money’s worth.
