WWE Payback 2016 is just four days away when Roman Reigns defends his WWE World Heavyweight championship for the first time since winning it at WrestleMania 32. He will be facing A.J. Styles but the latest WWE rumors suggest that Reigns is expected to keep his title.

According to Cageside Seats, Reigns will leave Payback still the WWE champion and defeat Styles in the main. It has been rumored since after WrestleMania that Bullet Club will be forming at Sunday’s event but the report noted that Styles won’t be joining forces with Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows.

The WWE has teased for months the formation of Bullet Club for months and it has been rumored for several weeks that Finn Balor will be making his main roster debut this Sunday. The WWE Shop has already put up a Bulletproof Balor Club t-shirt for sale.

It looks like it will be the official name of the Bullet Club’s version in the WWE and Balor will be their leader. The question now is what role will they play in the main event of Payback? Will they attack Reigns and cause a disqualification? Will they help Reigns defeat A.J. Styles?

According to Sporting News, the likely scenario at Payback will be Anderson and Gallows helping Reigns to keep his title. However, they will not be a part of a new stable but instead, Balor will make his debut and feud with Styles.
