The following are highlights from Chair Shot Reality with Payback pay-per-view predictions. The full conversations on video can be seen below.

Dolph Ziggler vs Alberto Del Rio:

"Nobody likes Alberto Del Rio but nobody really cares about Dolph Ziggler either. When he walked out after having the concussion issue, the reaction was mediocre. It just was not what it should be for a guy who had been out and a returning world champion. You talk about Del Rio and his husband Rodriguez being the best part of his act, AJ is the best part of the Ziggler act."

"That gotta do something to get Ziggler back up to where they want him. They gotta turn Del Rio heel. They gotta understand Rodriguez is the best part that act. AJ's the best part of that act and book accordingly."

The Miz vs Wade Barret vs Curtis Axel:

"I think it devalues Axel who has been in the main event stuff lately to be in a three way with a couple of bums like Barret and Miz. Nobody thinks Barrett is a bare knuckle fighter. A bare knuckle fighter wouldn't tap out to the phoniest finisher ever, the figure four…no offense Naitch. Miz is just totally lost any steam he had. To me, you're devaluing Axel. If he's as good as they hope he is, it won't matter much. For him, this is a nothing match."

Daniel Bryan/Randy Orton vs The Shield:

"Bottom line is, Bryan deserves better than this in a pay-per-view if indeed he's in line for the push people are predicting. You can look at them hedging their bets with this guy. He's so over. It's so organic. They're hedging their bets. You're hearing about a heel turn for him. That's the last thing they should do with Daniel Bryan is turn him heel. Which goes to show you, if a guy who they don't have their original trust in is getting over more than they would like, publicly they will say how great it is, but behind the scenes they will try to slow him down. It's the glass ceiling."

Dean Ambrose vs Kane:

"Kane is one of the most underrated big men in the history of the business. If the idea is to build Ambrose, he'll come out this match looking great and meaning a lot more than he did going in."
Ryback vs John Cena:
"Ryback should have never lost. He should have never opened his mouth. If they wanted to keep at the top heel level, they should have put Paul Heyman with him. They've blown it all. Ryback's done himself no favors because he can't talk, he's clumsy in the ring. It's just too late for him. Cena should win this convincingly."
AJ Lee vs Kaitlyn:
"Could you believe that secret admirer segment was on the same show as Seth Rollins and Daniel Bryan. It was terrible."
"I guess the best place to meet a stalker is on national television because what could he do? There are plenty of witnesses."
CM Punk vs Chris Jericho:
"This match could steal the show, then again looking at the card that would be petty theft."
"Punk's gotta win. Then again, they always best every member of the Hart family in Calgary every chance they get so maybe they beat Punk in Chicago. Point is, there is no real damage to either guy by losing so this actually a touch match to call."
