We are just over 24 hours away from WWE Payback, and the company has added one more match to the PPV show. As announced on Saturday morning's Talking Smack broadcast on the WWE Network, Big E will now wrestle Sheamus in a singles match at the event. A match for Big E had been expected, as he is in the midst of a new singles push on SmackDown. The match with Sheamus makes sense based on recent television tapings.
The following tweet from WWE also announced the bout.
Earlier today it was confirmed on “Talking Smack” that Big E would face off with The Celtic Warrior at WWE Payback. The New Day powerhouse defeated Sheamus earlier this month on the blue brand, as Big E has continued to build momentum at the start of his Singles run.
Sheamus has built his WWE career by crushing the dreams of the most optimistic Superstars. Will Big E make a huge statement or will Sheamus provide a punishing roadblock?
