Main Event For WWE Payback Announced, Contract Signing On SmackDown


Tonight on Monday Night RAW, WWE announced the main event for Payback, which will air this Sunday night on the WWE Network.

We will see WWE Universal Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt defend his championship against Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat Match. A contract signing will be held during Friday night’s WWE SmackDown broadcast.


You can check out the official announcement below:

The Big Dog left no room for interpretation when he made his shocking return at SummerSlam: He wants the Universal Championship.

But to get it, Roman Reigns will have to go through two of the most powerful and demented forces in all of WWE as he challenges new champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and “The Monster” Braun Strowman in a massive No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match.

Locked in a bizarre and heated conflict for weeks, Wyatt and Strowman saw their issues catalyzed by Strowman’s descent into madness, completing his change into “The Monster.”

But when their bitter rivalry came to a cataclysmic head at SummerSlam, not even Strowman’s transformation was enough to overcome “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in a barbaric Falls Count Anywhere Match. Wyatt needed not one, but two Sister Abigails on the ring’s exposed wooden boards to keep “The Monster” down.

Reigns wasted no time after the titanic title tilt to Spear his way right into the Universal Championship picture, leaving both men lying after an intense assault and hoisting the Universal Title high.

Given the destruction wrecked already by these Superstars, what’s in store when they all collide? And who will leave with the Universal Title?
