John Cena Unveiled as Special Guest Host for WWE Payback: Latest Match Card Updates

In a surprise announcement on tonight's SmackDown, WWE legend John Cena confirmed he will serve as the special guest host for the highly anticipated Payback event scheduled for tomorrow night. This revelation follows earlier reports suggesting that Cena was being considered for the hosting gig, and insiders believe agreements were likely reached well before the official disclosure. Contrary to the early information, Cena disclosed on tonight’s episode of SmackDown that he was only made aware of his hosting duties as he prepared to make his grand entrance from the Gorilla Position.

Speculation also arose earlier this week that Cena might appear at the upcoming WWE Fastlane event, set for October 7 in Indianapolis, Indiana, although this has yet to be confirmed. As part of his return campaign, which commenced tonight, Cena is also reportedly being considered for a match against Cody Rhodes.

Below is the updated WWE Payback 2023 card for tonight:
