Washington: A Triple Threat Match for the Universal Title, Women’s Tag Team Title Match and US Title Match has been reserved for this weekend’s WWE Payback 2020. Coming up first, Roman Reigns is supposed to make his in-ring return at this Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view.
During last night’s RAW, it was declared that Payback shall cast a No Holds Barred Triple Threat for the Universal Championship where the New Universal Champion ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt is going to defend against Reigns and Braun Strowman at the main event probably for the night.
All of the three opponents shall also be present for Friday’s SmackDown to sign the contract for the big match. Reigns made his return to WWE by the end of SummerSlam 2020 pay-per-view and pulled out The Fiend and Strowman with several spears and chair shots. It happened precisely after Strowman had declined the title to The Fiend via clean pinfall win.
Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax are supposed to challenge for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at the Payback as per the authorisation given by RAW. In an interesting lineup, two heel superstars are supposed to challenge Sasha Banks and SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, also two heels for their very own tag team titles on Sunday.
The match was finalised after Jax dragged Baszler out of the ring during his RAW’s non-title match with Bayley. The duo stood at ringside and stared at the champs down. Later on, they had words of peace and aspired to help each other to win the tag titles. Jax however expected to be in the lead as the backstage segment finished off with Baszler slapping her and leaving.
WWE had declared that Bobby Lashley is supposed to challenge United States Champion Apollo Crews at the Payback 2020. Last night’s RAW starred Lashley vs Crews in an Arm Wrestling Contest, organised and executed by WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry. Crews just defended his title over MVP at SummerSlam who had also won the scheduled arm wrestling contest by beating Lashley’s feet.
Lastly, Keith Lee was also supposed to prepare his WWE main roster pay-per-view debut being a member of the RAW brand at WWE Payback. The former NXT Champion is going to face Randy Orton in a singles match on Sunday. Orton vs Lee was brought down on RAW as the match had a DQ-end when WWE Champion Drew McIntyre raged on Orton for payback from an attack, ahead of the night.
Later, Orton also raged on McIntyre again eventually and caused him a skull fracture. The present WWE Champion was then taken into a hospital for medical examination whereas Lee his good friend took his stand and on behalf of him had set up this matchup against The Viper.
2020 edition of Payback pay-per-view shall take place this Sunday from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
