The tagline towas “You’ll never see it coming.” It turns out “it” was Roman Reigns, . On Sunday — yes, this Sunday — Reigns will face new champion Bray Wyatt as well as former champion Strowman in a triple threat match for the Universal Championship.
It was one of several matches announced on Raw. We also know Bayley and Sasha Banks will defend their tag titles against Nia Jax (boo!) and Shayna Baszler (yay!). Curiously, and excitingly, Keith Lee will face Randy Orton.
As noted, the show takes place on Sunday, so expect the rest of the match card to be populated quickly. We’ll update this page as soon as new bouts are announced.
Unlike every PPV since March, Payback won’t take place in WWE’s Performance Center. As noted, it’ll air from Orlando’s Amway Center, known as WWE’s “ThunderDome.” The main card starts both days at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. If you’re a paid WWE Network subscriber — at $9.99 a month — you can watch Payback live for no extra cost. Otherwise, you’ll need to contact your local cable provider.
Viewers in the UK will have to stay up late to watch Payback as the show starts midnight Sunday UK time. Payback starts for Australians at 9 a.m. AEST on Monday.
