The inaugural edition of WWE Payback will come to you, live on pay-per-view, in just over a week on June 16 from the Allstate Arena in CM Punk’s hometown of Chicago, IL. As announced on WWE.com, Wade Barrett will defend the Intercontinental Championship in a Triple Threat Match at the event. Here is the updated card:
- CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho
- WWE Championship: Three Stages of Hell Match: John Cena (c) vs. Ryback
- Intercontinental Championship: Triple Threat: Wade Barrett (c) vs. The Miz vs. Fandango
The Three Stages of Hell Match will consist of a Lumberjack Match, a Tables Match, and, if necessary, an Ambulance Match. The first competitor to earn two falls in the match will emerge as the WWE Champion. In the Lumberjack Match, a host of WWE Superstars will surround the ring with the task of keeping both competitors in the ring. The match can end via pinfall, submission, or disqualification with no count-outs. In the Tables Match, the only way to win is by putting your opponent through a table with no pinfalls, no submissions, no disqualifications, and no count-outs. In the Ambulance Match, the only way to win is by loading your opponent into an awaiting ambulance and closing both of the doors with no pinfalls, no submissions, no disqualifications, and no count-outs.
In a Triple Threat Match, the first man to score a pinfall or submission will win the match and emerge as the Intercontinental Champion. There will be no disqualifications and no count-outs.
