The dramatic music for this 'Live' happening is something else.

And now Orton has been killed by a fridge.

Best thing about it was no Michael Cole commentary.

They can never again laugh at WCW for having a match in the back of a moving 18 wheeler.

Hate that finish. My fears for Joe's booking continue...

Where the strawberry float did Bray's lamp come from. And yes, I know after everything we've seen tonight that seems a ridiculous question.

Mahal ruining Backlash clearly isn't enough for them... he's gotta ruin Payback too.

This has been one of those nights you just need to turn your brain off and run with the incessant nonsense.

That's a result I can get behind.

But where was Angle? I swear he was teased via a Network e-mail.

He was, but you can't expect a company to stick to what they advertised 1 week ago. Plans change, man.

Imagine ordering this on conventional PPV and the show cutting out and then continuing exclusively on 'RAW Talk'. Just because.

Clones :shock:.

I wonder what they'll do with Jericho and the belt. Obviously he can't keep it with his band's touring schedule. It'd be quite nice to see Styles take it from him on SmackDown, given he was Styles' first feud and was the first guy to beat him in WWE. I'd much rather see that than an immediate Owens / Jericho rematch with Owens taking the belt back. I'm looking forward to Owens vs. Styles. :o

Wrestling always best when most ridiculous, House of Horrors was fantastic.

Great PPV overall, not a bad match and suprised the two titles changed.

I believe Jericho is taking a month off soon though to tour with fozzy. I thought it was very soon as well.

Some backstage skits on WWE.com are better than what they have on the actual tv shows.

Fozzy starts touring next week, 6th may. tour lasts a bit over a month.

I don't see why Jericho couldn't keep the title. Let him take it on tour!

The profile of the belt is pretty low at this point and let's be honest nobody will miss it for a month!

I agree with this but it makes me wonder if he's just going to drop the title straight away on Raw or SD this week.
