With the Payback pay-per-view less than a week away, WWE went about filling out the card during Monday's edition of Raw.

According to Pro Wrestling Torch, two matches were confirmed for Sunday's event:

Sheamus and Dolph Ziggler have been feuding ever since Sheamus' return back in March, and they clashed in a Kiss Me Arse match last month at Extreme Rules. King Barrett and Neville's battle will serve as the rubber match after Neville beat Barrett on the Extreme Rules pre-show, while Barrett defeated Neville in the final of the 2015 King of the Ring.

Victor Macias feels WWE is using somewhat lazy booking but that it doesn't have much choice with all of the PPVs so tightly packed:

On one hand, it feels like the "wrestling for wrestling's sake" that Vince McMahon decried on his podcast with Stone Cold Steve Austin. On the other, who's going to complain if the matches are exciting?

At the very least, the four should put on solid matches. Ziggler and Sheamus are talented workers and won't have the Kiss Me Arse stipulation dragging the whole thing down, while Barrett and Neville have really good chemistry in the ring and offer a nice clash of styles.
