- The 2016 WWE Payback pay-per-view opens with WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day coming out.
Xavier Woods talks about the tournament, presented by Booty O's, and Kofi Kingston says they will be sitting at ringside for the match. Woods gives a shout-out to Beyonce. Big E says there's a new era in WWE because... the "New Day rocks" chant starts as we go to an opening video package for Payback.
We come back and out comes Enzo Amore and Big Cass. We still haven't heard from the announcers. Enzo does the intro on the way to the ring as The New Day watches from ringside, Booty O's in hand. Fans chant "how you doin?" as Enzo and Cass hit the ring. JoJo is the ring announcer for this one. More mic work from Enzo and Cass as they knock The Vaudevillains. The New Day approves of their "SAWFT" gimmick. Out next comes Simon Gotch and Aiden English to boos. Still no announcers.
Michael Cole gives us a look at the tournament brackets and welcomes us to a sold out Payback. He's joined by JBL and Byron Saxton. We also have the German and Spanish announce teams at ringside tonight. Enzo starts off with Gotch and they lock up.
Enzo ends up getting caught by the bottom rope when Gotch launched him under it. He goes down at ringside. Gotch tries to attack but the referee backs him off. The referee calls for a doctor as Cass is also over. The referee quickly calls for the bell as a stretcher is brought out. The camera is trained on the announcers but cuts back to Enzo being put in a neck brace and loaded onto the stretcher. Fans chant Enzo's name. Enzo is taken away with no winner announced.
