WWE announces pre-show tag match for Payback


A pre-show tag match is set for Sunday's Payback pay-per-view.

WWE announced tonight that Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan will team up against The IIconics on the Payback pre-show this Sunday:

The next chapter in the heated rivalry between The Riott Squad and The IIconics will be written when they clash during the WWE Payback Kickoff show, tomorrow night at 6 ET/3 PT.

Ruby Riott found herself on the receiving end of mockery from Peyton Royce & Billie Kay in recent weeks, with the Australian duo claiming Riott had no friends. But after apologizing to her estranged partner Liv Morgan, The Riott Squad was back in action and the odds evened against The IIconics. But in several bouts pitting members of the two teams against each other, it seemed as though Riott and Morgan needed to get back on the same page, while The IIconics often had the last laugh.

Will The Riott Squad be able to shut The IIconics up, or will Billie Kay & Peyton Royce be laughing once again? Find out during the WWE Payback Kickoff, streaming tomorrow night at 6 ET/3 PT on the award-winning WWE Network,, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Twitch and TikTok!

Riott & Morgan most recently faced off with The IIconics as part of a six-woman tag match on Raw this week. Bianca Belair, Riott & Morgan defeated Zelina Vega & The IIconics in that match. After Riott & Morgan took out The IIconics, Belair hit the KOD on Vega to get the win.
