WWE released the full schedule of programming that was set to take place for their Payback Event this past Saturday night and one of those shows was the post-Payback Press Conference, but the listing for the show was quietly removed and it ended up not happening.
Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, who was in attendance at WWE Payback, revealed WWE told him moving forward fans can expect to see post-show press conferences held mainly for international Premium Live Events and the big 5 Premium Live Events (Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and Money In the Bank).
Post-Premium Live Event Press Conferences are usually hosted by Byron Saxton and features top talents from that night’s WWE Premium Live Event taking questions from members of the media. The post-premium live event press conference then ends with WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H saying a few words from his notes and taking a few more questions from the media.

I’m told by WWE there won’t be a press conference tonight after Payback and to expect them mainly for the big 5 (WM, Rumble, SSlam, SSeries, MITB) and international PLEs going forward.
