After a three-year layoff, Payback is back on WWE's premium event calendar.

Payback is finally here, as WWE's eighter pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, September 2, at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

Seth "Freaking" Rollins (World Heavyweight champion), Rey Mysterio (United States champion) and Rhea Ripley (women's World whampion) will put their belts on the line against Shinsuke Nakamura, Austin Theory and Raquel Rodriguez, respectively. Meanwhile, Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus will continue their feud in the Steel City with a match enveloped by a metal cage.

In a first ever "Steel City Street Fight" in WWE, best friends and tag team champs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn put their straps up for grabs against the feuding partners of Finn Balor and Damian Priest from The Judgment Day.
