WWE Payback Lineup for Tonight (Aug. 30) – Eight Matches Announced, Payback Special on The Bump

It appears as if the WWE Payback lineup is complete. There were six matches that were advertised for Payback that we covered in our in-depth WWE Payback Preview right here.

On Saturday morning, WWE announced a seventh match on the show with Big E facing off against Sheamus, which is a rivalry that has been brewing on the Smackdown brand over the last few weeks.

Late Saturday night, WWE announced a women’s tag team match for the Kickoff Show that will see Ruby Riott teaming up with Liv Morgan against The IIconics duo of Peyton Royce and Billie Kay.

That puts the card at eight matches total and that’s likely going to be the final lineup.

In addition to the show tonight, WWE has more Payback related content on The Bump today and some of Payback’s greatest matches as well. Here’s more of that from
