First event Payback (2013)

WWE Payback is a professional wrestling event produced annually by WWE, a Connecticut–based promotion, and broadcast live and available through pay-per-view (PPV). The event was established in 2013, replacing No Way Out in June slot of WWE's pay-per-view calendar.[1][2] In 2015, the event is scheduled to take place on May 17 from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

The event has been held only in indoor arenas in the United States (the first two events have both taken place at the Allstate Arena, in Rosemont, Illinois). Championship bouts are scheduled on every card, with the lower-tier titles featured on the undercard and the top-tier featured on the main card.
