Championship Match Announced For WWE Payback

Championship Match Announced For WWE Payback

Although SummerSlam was just last night, WWE is set to return with their Payback pay per view just next week. Now, we know a championship match that will be on the show. After Apollo Crews defended the United States title against MVP at SummerSlam, he will now turn his attention to Bobby Lashley.

WWE announced the match earlier today on Twitter. Here is the announcement and the preview available on

“Crews will have to go through The Hurt Business’ All Mighty when defends his United States Championship against Bobby Lashley at WWE Payback.

Warring with MVP for months, Crews has become the primary target of his loquacious rival’s newly formed battalion. The fast-rising champion turned aside MVP’s best at SummerSlam, but Lashley represents an entirely different challenge with his unparalleled strength.

And few know of Lashley’s brute power better than Crews, who was out of action for weeks after being injured by The All Mighty’s Full Nelson.

Can Crews keep his first-ever title reign rolling, or will Lashley bring the gold home to The Hurt Business?”

Crews and The Hurt Business have been on opposite sides of this battle for months now. Crews was meant to have a match with MVP at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules but the storyline was extended to SummerSlam. Now, Crews is in line for an even bigger challenge against Bobby Lashley.
