Payback 2017 was a WWE pay-per-view (PPV) event which will be aired on April 30 2017 from the SAP Center in San Jose, California. The event was exclusive to the RAW Brand, and featured talent predominantly from that show. The show did however feature Kevin Owens from the SmackDown Live Brand, who faced off against Chris Jericho and Randy Orton facing off against Bray Wyatt in a “House of Horrors” match. This was the first Payback event since the 2017 Brand Split, and marked the sixth in the events chronology.

At WrestleMania 33, Chris Jericho lost the United States championship to his former best friend Kevin Owens. The following night on RAW, Jericho was granted his rematch at Payback. Chris Jericho was later taken out backstage by Owens and Samoa Joe. Following the superstar shakeup, this past week, Kevin Owens moved to SmackDown Live. Despite this, it was later revealed that the championship had moved brands not Owens himself. The winner of the match between Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens would move to the SmackDown Live brand.

Following on from their “shocking” return to WWE at WrestleMania, The Hardy Boyz defended their WWE RAW Tag Team Championship against the former champions Cesaro and Sheamus at Payback event. After Randy Orton ended the championship reign of Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 33, Wyatt later issued a challenge for a rematch. The stipulation for the match was to be “House of Horrors”.
