It has been speculated for some time that The Wyatt Family will face the League of Nations at Payback.
However, due to Bray Wyatt picking up a calf injury during WWE's European tour, this match has been put in serious doubt. Braun Strowman and Erick Rowan aren't good enough to be pushed on their own in this clash, which is why this match hasn't even been confirmed yet.
As we know when it comes to the WWE, things can quickly change. One of those changes could actually be the dismantle of The Wyatt Family's rumored opponents, the League of Nations.

The split of the stable has already begun, as King Barrett was removed from the group by Sheamus, Rusev, and Alberto Del Rio on the first Raw following WrestleMania. Since then, things have gone from bad to worse, as the team has suffered from multiple losses.
Rumors have been swirling around the WWE Universe that the League of Nations could soon be separating, as the Wrestling Observer noted earlier this month that it was the beginning of the end for the faction in the WWE.

During an interview with solowrestling.com in Spain, according to NoDQ, Del Rio has acknowledged these rumors, stating because of Bray Wyatt's injury, their speculated match against The Wyatt Family at Payback is unlikely to take place. This left the group with nothing to do, and therefore, the group is splitting up.
“We as a group have never worked very well, so we decided that it is better to separate,” said Del Rio during the interview. “I think Bray Wyatt is hurt, and all this will come to nothing.”
While the group looked strong upon their formation, WWE creative booking hasn't done any of the members any favors, so the group is splitting up. The stable has been floating around without any real booking direction for quite a while now.
As a group, they never held the Tag Team Championship, and they only ever held two singles titles; the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (Sheamus), and the United States Championship (Del Rio). Even then, they didn't hold onto those championships for very long.
The stable had some promise, but it has ended up doing more harm than good for Sheamus, Del Rio, Rusev, and Barrett. They've all fallen out of relevancy and will have to build themselves up once more as single competitors.
All four members were good as single competitors. Hopefully, the WWE will be able to book them correctly so that they can become relevant once more.
