We are just one week removed from SummerSlam, but WWE is already putting on another pay-per-view with Sunday's Payback event.

A lot of the card is made up of rematches from the past couple of weeks, but with the return of Roman Reigns, the universal title picture just got a lot more interesting.

Here is everything you need to know about WWE Payback 2020. 


Venue: Amway Center in Orlando, Florida

Start Time: 6 p.m. ET (Kickoff), 7 p.m. ET (main show)

Other Payback Thoughts

Reigns aligning himself with Paul Heyman came as a genuine shock to most of the WWE Universe. This alliance opens the door for several interesting possibilities, one of which includes The Big Dog becoming a heel.

Reigns has been a good guy for the majority of his WWE career, but everyone who was there when The Shield first arrived on the scene will remember him as a villain at first.

One also has to wonder what this means for Brock Lesnar? He and Heyman are longtime partners, and The Beast has a rivalry with Reigns going back a few years. Have they made peace, or will Heyman have to choose between his clients when Lesnar eventually returns?

The ongoing storyline between Banks and Bayley has been one of the most enjoyable programs to watch in recent months. With The Boss now without the Raw women's title, will she turn on her best friend if they lose the tag belts too?

They have a long and complicated history dating back to their days in NXT together. They have been allies and enemies several times, so WWE is taking its time with this storyline to make sure it feels different from every other time they have had issues.

The rest of the card is fine, but most, if not all of the matches scheduled will be repeats of bouts we have seen in the past two weeks. 

With one week between PPVs, WWE is running the risk of wearing out its fans, especially since All Elite Wrestling will be airing All Out next weekend. 

The Thunderdome concept appears to be here to stay until WWE can begin having fans attend shows again. Let's hope they go easy on the fake crowd noise this week.
