WWE's final big stop on the road to SummerSlam takes place this Sunday in the form of Extreme Rules. A jam-packed, ten-match card during which eight championships will be up for grabs. Extreme Rules will air live this Sunday, July 14, 2019, on the WWE Network. The main card begins at 7:00 pm EST, or tune in at 6:00 pm EST if you want to watch the kickoff show.
The Undertaker and Roman Reigns vs Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre
Roman Reigns is lucky The Undertaker came along when he did because before that, Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre were making his life a living hell. Despite clashing in the main event of WrestleMania 34, at Extreme Rules, Taker and Reigns will be on the same side. Shane O'Mac doesn't like to lose though, so the foes turned tag partners will have their work cut out for them.
Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins vs Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans for the Universal and Raw Women's Championships
Between WrestleMania and SummerSlam, WWE's top champions tend to have filler rivalries. That is what these feuds have felt like for both Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins. Our hope is that both of those feuds will come to a head at Extreme Rules this Sunday. We just hope that they don't end with Baron Corbin becoming Universal Champion.
Kofi Kingston vs Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship
Samoa Joe has an innate ability to lose on a regular basis in WWE yet still feel like he is a threat. That's why we are so excited for this match on Sunday. Not only could we see Joe finally become WWE Champion, but he is the only person to have defeated Kofi Kingston since he became champion at WrestleMania. Match of the night contender right here.
Bayley vs Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross for the SmackDown Women's Championship
This week on SmackDown, Nikki Cross won the right to name the stipulation for this match. We're not sure adding yourself to it is technically a stipulation, but okay. Either way, Bayley will really have the odds stacked against her in this one. WWE has been low key teasing the return of a friend to help her out, though. Could Sasha Banks be back come Sunday?
Daniel Bryan and Rowan vs New Day vs Heavy Machinery for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships
Daniel Bryan and Rowan have made it their goal to make WWE's tag division mean something. This match at Extreme Rules might be their best chance to do so thus far. There's a lot of talent in this match, and even though that ring will be crowded at times, the six men involved are more than capable of making this matchup unmissable.
Ricochet vs AJ Styles for the United States Championship
AJ Styles might be a World Title level Superstar, but he has decided to focus all his energy on Ricochet and the US Championship for now. What's more, The Phenomenal One has become so frustrated with the high flier that he has resorted to turning heel and reuniting The Club. Come Monday, we imagine The Club's fearless leader will once again be draped in gold.
Drew Gulak vs Tony Nese for the Cruiserweight Championship
At Stomping Grounds, Drew Gulak finally achieved his dream of becoming Cruiserweight Champion. The only issue with that is he didn't pin the champ to do so since it was a triple threat match. Former champion Tony Nese doesn't believe Gulak can be called a true champ until he has beaten him. Gulak will get the chance to do so at Extreme Rules.
Bobby Lashley vs Braun Strowman
When two Superstars have to resort to crashing through Raw's stage to keep each other down, there is only one option left when it comes to a match stipulation. Last Man Standing. In order to win at Extreme Rules, one of these men will have to knock the other down to the point that they can't answer a count of ten. Good luck with that.
The Revival vs The Usos for the Raw Tag Team Championships
If you're looking for a sleeper match that could well steal the show at Extreme Rules, this might well be it. We didn't even know this match was happening until we put together this match card. There's a chance it could even be on the kickoff show. Whether it is or not, it won't stop two of the best tag teams in the world from leaving it all out there as they attempt to steal the show.
Aleister Black vs Cesaro
Speaking of potential match of the night contenders. On SmackDown this week, we finally discovered that it was Cesaro who has been knocking at Aleister Black's door. Black seemed pretty pleased with that revelation, and so were we. Cesaro is the perfect choice as he will give Black a terrific series of matches, but not be hurt too much should he lose that series.
