Big E vs. Sheamus set for WWE Payback


A new match has been added to the card for Sunday's Payback pay-per-view.

Big E vs. Sheamus has been made official for Payback this Sunday. The announcement of the match was made on this week's episode of Talking Smack.

This will be Big E's first PPV match of his current singles run. On SmackDown last week, Big E defeated Sheamus in a singles match. He rolled up Sheamus to get the pin after Sheamus was distracted by Matt Riddle and Baron Corbin fighting on the outside.

Big E and Sheamus were then on opposite sides of a six-man tag match on SmackDown last night. Big E teamed with Heavy Machinery to defeat The Miz, John Morrison & Sheamus after Sheamus walked out on his partners. The finish of the match was Big E pinning Miz after hitting the Big Ending.

Kayla Braxton and The Miz were again the hosts of Talking Smack this week. Braxton and Xavier Woods have been announced as the regular hosts of the show.

There are now seven matches confirmed for Payback. Here's the updated card for the PPV:

  • Universal Champion "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt defending against Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns in a no holds barred triple threat match
  • Keith Lee vs. Randy Orton
  • Women's Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Bayley defending against Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax
  • United States Champion Apollo Crews defending against Bobby Lashley
  • Rey & Dominik Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins & Murphy
  • Matt Riddle vs. Baron Corbin
  • Big E vs. Sheamus
