On Sunday, WWE will hold its Payback pay-per-view, which is somehow the first PPV since WrestleMania 33. Payback is going to be a weird melange of Superstars and matches before we get back to the brand-exclusive PPVs before SummerSlam.

A little while ago, WWE’s schedule revealed that the July 9 PPV would revive the “Bad Blood” event name, and now we have another couple tidbits of information about that PPV, which will take place in Dallas. The first bit of info is that it looks like this PPV will feature Brock Lesnar’s first Universal Championship defense, but the more pertinent and pressing news here is that the event has a new name, and you’ll never guess what it is.

Seriously, you will never guess. Are you ready for it? The event will be called …

Great Balls Of Fire.

No, really. The American Airlines Center sent out this official WWE hype video on Friday morning, and yep, it’s official. It’s really a PPV called Great Balls Of Fire. It has a logo and everything!
