On the WWE side of things, fans were witness to the Payback event, which included matches such as Seth Rollins versus Shinsuke Nakamura, Becky Lynch versus Trish Stratus inside a steel cage, and a street fight pitting Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn versus The Judgment Day's Finn Balor and Damian Priest. On the AEW side of things, fans were treated to instant classics such as Konosuke Takeshita versus Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley versus Orange Cassidy, and Bryan Danielson versus Ricky Starks. Thereafter, even the "WWE Raw" on Labor Day Monday proved to be a sizzling affair headlined by the GUNTHER vs. Chad Gable bout


Elsewhere, Pro Wrestling Noah's N-1 Victory tournament final — pitting Go Shiozaki against Kenoh — and Day 14 of STARDOM's 5STAR Grand Prix also took place on Labor Day weekend, the latter of which included matches such as Syuri versus Mayu Iwatani, and Giulia versus Risa Sera. Clearly, fans enjoying the holiday weekend had plenty of options to choose from.
