To update a story we brought you last month, WWE Payback will take place this year after all. The show will emanate from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL on Sunday, May 1, 2016. There is currently a presale underway to obtain tickets, using the password PAYBACK.
The news comes after WWE replaced Payback with Extreme Rules, which will take place from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on Sunday, May 22, 2016.
There was talk at one point of taking away pay-per-views in order to do more WWE Network specials but so far, the company is sticking with their pay-per-view schedule, while also adding Network specials.
