Two new matches have just been announced for Payback, the upcoming Raw-exclusive WWE pay-per-view.
On Monday Night Raw this week, Kurt Angle decided to book a match between Bruan Strowman and Roman Reigns for Payback. Angle entered in the opening segment and told Strowman that he’s done enough damage but that he will face Reigns at the upcoming pay-per-view.
This comes after a memorable segment in which Strowman absolutely destroyed Roman Reigns, tipping over an ambulance with Reigns inside of it. Within the WWE storyline, Reigns is seriously injured and is therefore unable to compete for now. It seems that he may be kept off television until Payback.
A second match has also been announced for Payback, although this one was booked shortly before the actual Monday Night Raw broadcast. A match between Seth Rollins and Samoa Joe was confirmed on the WWE’s social media channels.
On Raw this week, Seth Rollins said he’s anxious to fight Samoa Joe, saying that this is the match he’s wanted for months.
The Payback card has almost completely been filled out by this point. We also know that there will be matches between Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho, Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt, The Hardy Boyz and Cesaro and Sheamus, and Neville and Austin Aries.
There will also be a Raw Women’s Championship match between Bayley and either Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, or Mickie James. The number one contender will be determined on Raw tonight.
