Curtis Axel def. Wade Barrett

Prior to his match against Curtis Axel, Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett tried to persuade Paul Heyman, “businessman to businessman,” to call off their fight so close to WWE Payback. But when The Miz stirred the proverbial pot, Barrett and Curtis decided to follow through on their pending battle.

It wasn’t long before the action spilled outside the ring, where Barrett threw a charging Axel into Miz. But, as the English Superstar was reentering the ring, Axel was able to beat him to the punch and put down The Barrett Barrage with a swinging neckbreaker - a huge non-title triumph over the reigning titleholder!

Before he could even breathe, though, the recovered Awesome One hit the newest “Heyman Guy” with a Skull-Crushing Finale of retribution. Miz may have won the night, but the victor in the Triple Threat Match at WWE Payback remains to be seen.
