Who to back with cash at Backlash?

Sometimes in life, you have to hold your hands up and say: I was wrong.

It's not always easy. It may be at the expense of spousal humility. It might, in extreme circumstances, land you in the slammer. Worst of all: it could tarnish your internet credo. But honesty is the best policy - honestly. So let's have some now.

I admit it: I made a complete balls of my Payback predictions. I stupidly exchanged likelihood for logic, making a slew of seemingly-sound but ultimately flawed predictions based on my cerebrum, not my cynicism.

It was all a bit of a travesty, truth be told. 'WWE logic' was second-guessed, as I instead plumped for what seemed most sensible. Champions losing in their home-town. Aging rock-stars packing for their tour claiming championships. Bray Wyatt winning. It was all so obvious but... for a moment... I tried to see the glass half-full.

I've since learned: the glass is rarely even a quarter full, and it probably has a bacteria-cradling chip in the rim. So no such mistakes this time: it's a return to flat-out pessimism. All formulas will be adhered too at Backlash, and nothing is too silly to happen.

But let me make one thing clear: Jinder becoming champ isn't included there. There's nothing silly about that.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, despairing over Middlesbrough FC, and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
