WWE has a lot of plans in the pipeline, but they haven’t confirmed a single match on their Payback card yet. That will change very soon, but just because no matches are announced doesn’t mean things aren’t in motion for a big show.
It seems that the first match for this year’s WWE Payback has been confirmed through a recent commercial broadcasted in international markets and on WWE Main Event. The event is scheduled to go down on Saturday, September 2nd, 2023, at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.
The advertised clash will feature Trish Stratus going head-to-head against Becky Lynch in a steel cage match, as revealed in the commercial provided below. It was previously made official by Adam Pearce that Trish vs Becky would be in a cage, but it wasn’t confirmed where that match would take place.
After Monday’s Raw, where Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus engaged in a match that ended via a double count-out, the confrontation escalated to the concessions area. Zoey Stark, who was previously banned from ringside, intervened by assaulting Lynch and assisting Stratus.
Subsequently, WWE official Adam Pearce declared that their upcoming encounter would transpire within a steel cage; however, no specific date was mentioned. As of right now, WWE has yet to officially announce the contest on their social media platforms or official website.
We will keep our eye on this ongoing story, right here at Ringside News. The WWE Payback card is likely to fill up fast, but they also aren’t booking as many matches for those pay-per-views like they once did.
