WWE SmackDown Preview, August 28: Contract Signing for Triple Threat “No Holds Barred” Universal Title Match at Payback

Roman Reigns, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman Set to Sign Title Contract

Roman Reigns made his grand return at SummerSlam, destroying “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in the process. The WWE Universe never saw it coming and much like that, Reigns reinserted himself into the Universal Title picture. The Fiend won the championship but The Big Dog stole the show.

Now, Reigns, Strowman, and Wyatt will collide for the coveted Universal Championship in a “No Holds Barred” Triple Threat title showdown this Sunday at Payback. However, ahead of the event, all three men must sign on the dotted line for their mega bout.

All three Superstars have very different intentions heading into Sunday’s match – The Fiend wants to dig deeper into his title reign, Strowman intends to recapture the gold, and Reigns plans on taking back his yard by dethroning the masked monster.

What will go down between the three combatants when they step inside the ring for the intense contract signing on SmackDown? Will RETRIBUTION strike again?

Big E Joins “Miz TV” After Explosive “Talking Smack” Standoff With The Miz

The latest edition of “Talking Smack” had Big E involved in a verbal back-and-forth with The Miz, and tonight, both men will resume their conversation on “Miz TV.”

In recent weeks, Big E has scored victories over both The Miz & John Morrison thereby signaling his return to singles competition. The New Day member has gained huge momentum so far and will look to keep it rolling when he joins The Hollywood A-Lister on his talk show tonight.

Given Big E’s name is not on the Payback card yet, it’s safe to assume that the segment will set him up for a singles clash with another Superstar at the upcoming PPV.
