Chaos and Confusion.
Three nights before Payback, the 871st edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH. After getting attacked for the second week in a row by Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, the notorious friends of AJ Styles, and even getting blasted with a Phenomenal Forearm by “The Phenomenal One” himself on RAW, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns would be in action on SmackDown as, before he defends the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against AJ Styles this Sunday at Payback, Roman Reigns would go one-on-one with a fellow champion in Intercontinental Champion The Miz as these two champions would clash in a non-title, Champion vs. Champion match just three days before their respective title defenses at Payback.
