During the pre-show for tonight's (May 19, 2014) episode of Monday Night Raw at the O2 Arena in London, England, it was announced by Booker T that The Shield vs. Evolution rematch, scheduled for Sun., June 1, 2014, at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois, will now be a No Holds Barred Elimination match.
That's one hell of a main event showcase for the Payback pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE Network.
It's expected that it will, in fact, be the main event thanks to WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan currently sitting on the shelf after neck surgery just last Thursday.
This direction seemed clear when Triple H cut a promo on Raw last week saying Evolution would take The Shield out one-by-one, starting with Dean Ambrose, moving on to Seth Rollins, and ending with "the big dog", Roman Reigns. Now he gets the chance to deliver on that promise.
If they do, expect the feud to continue.
Here's the updated Payback match card and line-up:
- Evolution vs. The Shield (No Holds Barred Elimination)
- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt (Last Man Standing)
