WWE Payback 2023 results: What was ‘Match of the Night’ in Pittsburgh?

WWE has put a bow tie around its Payback Premium Live Event from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as the promotion wrapped up the show tonight (Sat., Sept. 2, 2023) with Seth Rollins pinning Shinsuke Nakamura after the Stomp to retain his world heavyweight championship, bad back and all.

Was it the best match on the card?

The show also featured Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus tearing the house down in a Steel Cage match, John Cena step in as special guest referee for LA Knight’s big win over The Miz, Rey Mysterio successfully defend his United States championship against Austin Theory, The Judgment Day win the tag team titles in a wild Steel City Street Fight, and Rhea Ripley take down Raquel Rodriguez in a physical battle to keep her women’s world championship.
