Notes on Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton Match; WWE Draft Rumored to be Scheduled for Fall?

— As per a report at, WWE originally had scheduled the Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton “House of Horrors” match for WWE Backlash in May. However, the match was changed to this month’s Raw brand Payback after Wyatt was a last minute choice to move over to Raw, likely replacing AJ Styles.

— We’ve also heard that another reason WWE pushed this match to Payback is because Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to defend his Universal Title and without it, neither of the two major championships would have been on the line which internally WWE felt would devalue the event.

— According to sources, despite the recent “Superstar Shakeup”, WWE is still tentatively planning another full Raw & Smackdown draft for later this year – likely sometime in the last quarter of the year.
