The inaugural edition of WWE Payback will come to you, live on pay-per-view, tomorrow night, June 16, at 8/7c from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL (CM Punk’s Hometown). All six championships in the WWE will be defended at the event, plus CM Punk returns to in-ring competition for the first time since WrestleMania. Here is the final card for the event:
- CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho

In the Three Stages of Hell Match for the WWE Championship, the first man to score two falls in the match will be declared the winner and the WWE Champion. The first fall will be a 30-Man Lumberjack Match, where 30 Superstars will surround the ring with the task of keeping the two combatants inside the ring and the fall can be decided via pinfall, submission, or disqualification with no count-outs. The second fall in the match will be a Tables Match, where the only way to win is by putting your opponent through a table and there will be no pinfalls, no submissions, no disqualifications, and no count-outs. The third fall, if necessary, will be an Ambulance Match, where the only way to win is by putting your opponent into the back of an ambulance and closing both doors and there will be no pinfalls, no submissions, no disqualifications, and no count-outs.
The Payback Kickoff will air exclusively on Yahoo, YouTube, Facebook, & WWE.com at 7:30/6:30c before the Payback pay-per-view.
