WWE has confirmed Roman Reigns will challenge for the Universal title at Payback on Sunday.
The announcement was made this evening on Raw, as well as in a subsequent tweet from WWE.
“BREAKING: #TheBigDog [Roman Reigns] is BACK, and he’ll challenge #TheFiend [Bray Wyatt] AND #TheMonster [Braun Strowman] in a #TripleThreat Match for the #UniversalTitle THIS SUNDAY at #WWEPayback,” they wrote.
A commercial aired later in the show saying it will be a No-Holds-Barred match as well.
As you’ll recall, Reigns returned at SummerSlam last night after the main event match between Strowman and Wyatt. He then beat them both down and seemed to have a more heel edge to his character while doing it.
The contract signing will take place on SmackDown this week to finalize the match.
