• WWE Planning The Return Of A PPV One Week After SummerSlam

WWE’s second biggest event of the year, SummerSlam, is scheduled to take place on August 23rd at an unknown location.

It seems like WWE is planning the return of the Payback pay-per-view a week after SummerSlam, as they have the event scheduled for Sunday, August 30th, per WrestleVotes.

“For whatever reason, WWE has added an additional PPV to the schedule, ONE week after SummerSlam.

Payback will take place August 30th.”

The Payback pay-per-view last took place in 2017, which featured Braun Strowman defeating Roman Reigns in the main event.
