Extreme Rules, a WWE Raw branded pay-per-view, will take place on June 4th. So what does the card look like right now?
The WWE has not yet announced all of the matches that will take place at Extreme Rules, but they have announced four so far. The main one is a fatal five-way match to determine the number one contender for the Universal Championship. The winner of this fatal five-way will face Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire in July. The participants of the fatal five-way match will be Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt, and Roman Reigns.
Another match that has been announced is a matchup between Bayley and Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship. This is a Kendo Stick on a Pole match, which means that a kendo stick will be suspended by a pole on one of the turnbuckles. The first person to grab the kendo stick gets to use it during the match, but all other weapons are still not permitted. This comes after Alexa Bliss defeated Bayley to win the Raw Women’s Championship at Payback.
Extreme Rules will also feature a Tag Team Championship match between The Hardy Boyz and Sheamus and Cesaro. On Raw on May 22nd, Matt Hardy won a match against Sheamus, which meant that he got to pick the stipulation for this match; he decided that it will be a steel cage match.
There will be an Intercontinental Championship match at Extreme Rules as well, with Dean Ambrose going up against The Miz. The stipulation of this match is that even if the match ends in disqualification, Dean Ambrose can still lose the championship. This comes after The Miz and Dean Ambrose had a match that ended in disqualification, which frustrated The Miz and caused him to challenge Ambrose to this match. Note: it’s not a no disqualification match; it’s just that the championship can still be dropped if a disqualification occurs.
Finally, the Cruiserweight Championship match will be a submissions match between Neville and Austin Aries.
That accounts for all of the WWE championships currently on Raw except for the Universal Championship, which is not being defended until July. However, there will likely be at least two or three more matches added to the show over the next two weeks. One possible match would be between Goldust and R. Truth, as the tag team of The Golden Truth recently split apart when Goldust betrayed R. Truth. Another possibility is that we will see a matchup between Kalisto defeats Apollo Crews, who clashed on Raw this week when Titus O’Neil attempted to recruit Kalisto to the Titus Brand.
