WWE.com released the following announcement with the official breakdown on the Sheamus-Big E. clash set for this Sunday night:
- Big E vs. Sheamus
Big E is focused on achieving his biggest WWE dreams, and that makes him a perfect target for Sheamus.
Earlier today it was confirmed on “Talking Smack” that Big E would face off with The Celtic Warrior at WWE Payback. The New Day powerhouse defeated Sheamus earlier this month on the blue brand, as Big E has continued to build momentum at the start of his Singles run.
Sheamus has built his WWE career by crushing the dreams of the most optimistic Superstars. Will Big E make a huge statement or will Sheamus provide a punishing roadblock?
