#4 WWE Payback (2020)

This is the only WWE pay-per-view that debuted in the past decade. In fact, Payback first happened a year after the comeback editions of a couple of events on this list. It ran from 2013 until 2017, being discontinued after WWE did away with brand-exclusive pay-per-views. However, it did make a return in 2020.

In fact, Payback was seemingly a last-minute addition to the schedule. It happened one week after SummerSlam and followed up from the big event well. The main event saw Roman Reigns win the Universal Championship in a triple threat against The Fiend and Braun Strowman, one week after making his shocking return to WWE.

However, there were other fun matches on the show as well. Dominik Mysterio picked up his first victory in WWE as he teamed with his father to defeat Seth Rollins and Murphy. Meanwhile, Sasha Banks and Bayley lost the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.

Payback was a big night for Keith Lee, as he soundly defeated Randy Orton in seven minutes. Bobby Lashley was also successful, winning the United States Championship. After such a solid show, it would be a pleasant surprise if Payback replaces Clash of Champions as WWE's annual September show.
