So what will the UK & Irish talents be up to during this Sunday’s WWE Pay-Per-View, “Payback”, he is a quick preview of all appearances and matches involving UK Talents…

WWE RAW Tag Team Championship match – Champions, The Hardy Boyz (Matt & Jeff Hardy) Vs Sheamus & Cesaro

At WWE Payback, glory will meet power head-on as Raw Tag Team Champions The Hardy Boyz go to war with former titleholders Sheamus & Cesaro.

Arguably, one of the biggest crowd reactions of WrestleMania came when Matt & Jeff Hardy suddenly reemerged on The Grandest Stage of Them All. However, that reception was trumped soon after, as the extreme brothers reigned supreme in the subsequent Fatal 4-Way Ladder Match to capture their eighth tag team championship in WWE! Riding that momentum all the way to Raw the following night, the Hardys successfully defended their newly-claimed gold against former champions Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.

That same night, however, The Swiss Superman & The Celtic Warrior once against proved themselves to be a formidable threat when they earned the opportunity to challenge Matt & Jeff by overcoming Enzo & Big Cass in a turbulent No. 1 Contender’s Match.

In their time together, Sheamus & Cesaro have transformed themselves from reluctant partners into an absolutely explosive tandem. However, do they have what it takes to dethrone the tag team masters of both land and air?

WWE Cruiserweight Championship match – Champion, Neville Vs Austin Aries

Austin Aries will have another opportunity to expel The King of the Cruiserweights from his throne when he challenges Neville for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship in a WrestleMania rematch.

Since his return at Roadblock: End of the Line and winning the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at Royal Rumble, Neville is undefeated in singles competition. The King of the Cruiserweights has vanquished all challengers and holds true the claim that without him, the Cruiserweight division would fall into obscurity. 

However, one of Neville’s closest calls as titleholder came against Aries at The Ultimate Thrill Ride. Returning from injury and immediately setting his sights on Neville, A-Double soon earned the opportunity to challenge The King of the Cruiserweights. An intense battle nearly saw the fall of the king, but Neville resorted to attacking Aries’ surgically repaired orbital socket to walk off The Grandest Stage of Them All with the Cruiserweight Title still in his possession.

Refusing to accept defeat, Aries overcame Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Mustafa Ali and TJ Perkins in a high-stakes Fatal 4-Way Match on the first WWE 205 Live after WrestleMania, earning a second chance to dethrone The King of the Cruiserweights.

Will Neville resort to questionable tactics to defeat Aries again, or will A-Double persevere to claim the WWE Cruiserweight Championship?

Finn Balor to appear on a special Kickoff Edition of MizTV

Since returning from the cataphoric injury that forced the first-ever Universal Champion to surrender his title just 24 hours after winning it, Finn Bálor has been seizing victories on every front. He teamed with one-time foe Seth Rollins to overcome Kevin Owens & Samoa Joe, he defeated Curt Hawkins and Jinder Mahal in singles action and most recently emerged on the winning side of a Six-Man Tag Team Match along with Seth Rollins and Big Cass.

On the flip side, since coming to Raw as part of the Superstar Shake-up, it’s safe to say that The Miz has not been having a very good time, whether it be experiencing the unhinged aggression of The Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose or suffering Sister Abigail from his surprise tag team partner Bray Wyatt in this week’s Raw main event.

However, if The Miz has taught us anything, it’s that he is at his most dangerous when he is feeling disrespected, and perhaps nowhere is this truer than on “The Most Must-See Talk Show in WWE History.” Then again, with Bálor on such a role as of late, does the A-Lister really want to cross him? If he pushes the Irish Superstar too far, Payback Kickoff may just witness a “Must-See” Coup de Grâce.
