But it shouldn’t be.

WWE got a new start just a few weeks ago when the “Superstar Shakeup” reshuffled the rosters and positioned numerous rising stars as future World title contenders. What made SmackDown so great in 2016 was its choice to push new talents, like AJ Styles and The Miz, to new heights while also utilizing big names, like John Cena, the way they should be.

Raw has had a tougher time doing that, often relying on part-time talent to spike ratings and generate interest. But Payback is shaping up to be one of those pay-per-views where WWE has the chance to remedy that and build toward the future by improving several aspects of the show for both the short and long terms.

Here are five smart booking decisions WWE must make at Payback, choices that could create a much better Raw going forward.
