Kickoff match announced for Payback pay-per-view

The Ascension

The Kickoff match for the Payback pay-per-view this coming Sunday will be a tag team match and it will air on the WWE Network, WWE.COM, YouTube, Facebook, and other WWE social media properties.

The match will feature Konnor and Viktor of The Ascension taking on Macho Mandow and Curtis Axel, the 2015 version of the Mega Powers! The tag team of Damien Sandow and Curtis Axel was assembled during last night’s Raw as the two recreated the scene when Macho Man and Hulk Hogan shook hands on an episode of Saturday Night’s Main Event in 1987 after Honky Tonk Man and the Hart Foundation attacked Savage and Miss Elizabeth and Hogan saved the day.
