3 Superstars Who Are Likely To Make Their Last Minute Return At WWE Payback 2023

8 months ago By Sports Desk

WWE’s Premium Live Event, Payback 2023, is just around the corner, and the atmosphere is electric with anticipation. Taking place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the event has a stacked card featuring A-listers like Seth Rollins, Cody Rhodes, and Rhea Ripley. As if that isn’t enough, WWE Creative and Triple H are reportedly planning to spice things up with some surprise returns. Here’s a closer look at three WWE superstars who are most likely to make a last-minute appearance.

John Cena: The Special Guest Host

Wrestlevotes recently reported, “Hearing rumblings that Payback will have a special guest host this Saturday night. And his name is John Cena.” With the 16-time world champion scheduled to return on this week’s SmackDown, his role at Payback 2023 seems to be extending beyond a one-off appearance. Special guests typically play a narrative role, and given Cena’s star power and history, his presence could significantly impact key decisions during the Payback event. Fans are eagerly waiting to see if Cena will involve himself in the action, be it physical or verbal.

Rikishi’s Family Affair

Another iconic superstar speculated to grace Payback 2023 is Rikishi. Known for his engaging personality and in-ring prowess, Rikishi’s return is rumored to be linked to his sons, Jimmy and Jey Uso. Given the Usos’ current storyline and the family’s deep-rooted history in WWE, a surprise guest appearance from Rikishi during the Usos’ match would provide a powerful narrative twist. Rikishi could either play the role of a supportive father or throw a curveball, adding another layer of drama to the Usos’ ongoing storyline.

The Viper Strikes Back?

Perhaps the most intriguing name on this list is Randy Orton. It’s been over 15 months since “The Viper” was last seen in a WWE ring. His last appearance was on the May 22, 2022, episode of SmackDown, where he and Matt Riddle lost the RAW Tag Team Championship to The Usos. The wrestling world has been abuzz with rumors of Orton’s return, fueled by the superstar’s efforts to get back into shape.

The stage is set for a memorable return at Payback 2023, where Randy Orton could reignite old rivalries or start new ones. With Cody Rhodes expected to appear on the Grayson Waller Effect but not having a match at Payback, Orton has an open door for a high-profile return. Imagine a scenario where Cody Rhodes is in a heated segment with Waller. Just as Rhodes takes down Waller, Orton appears out of nowhere with his signature RKO, marking a triumphant and shocking return.

While the star-studded lineup for Payback 2023 is already promising, the addition of John Cena, Rikishi, and Randy Orton could make this event a historical one. These returns wouldn’t just be for nostalgia; they would be deeply integrated into the current storylines, enhancing the drama and stakes of the matches on the card.

With so much buzz and speculation, Payback 2023 is shaping up to be one of the most memorable events in recent WWE history. Only time will tell how these potential returns will play out, but one thing is certain: WWE fans are in for an unforgettable night.
