WWE Adding ‘Payback’ Event To August Lineup
WWE is reportedly adding an additional special event the week following SummerSlam.
Shortly after the initial report, more details were revealed indicating talks to hold a Network special the week after SummerSlam go back to June when WWE informed partners upcoming plans.
Based on a report today, it seems WWE will be following through with those plans.
According to Wrestlevotes, WWE Payback will be held on August 30, one week after SummerSlam. Although Payback has traditionally been available on pay-per-view via cable operators, it’s unknown if this will strictly be a WWE Network special.
For whatever reason, WWE has added an additional PPV to the schedule, ONE week after SummerSlam. Payback will take place August 30th.
The last WWE Payback event was in April 2017 at the SAP Center in San Jose, featuring Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman.
