The Extreme Rules pay-per-view will be staged Sunday night at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. At the time of writing, six bouts for the show have been officially announced, five of which are for the title, and only one match has a special stipulation.
This is the dispute between Roman Reigns and 'The Demon' Finn Balor. Charlotte Flair will defend her Raw female title against Alexa Bliss, while Street Profits will have to contend with Usos for the blue brand's tag team belts.
Do not miss the challenge between Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair, in what represents the revenge of SummerSlam. The only match not titled is the one between Liv Morgan and Carmella. It is quite bizarre that a PPV called Extreme Rules has only one special stipulation match, but it is not excluded that WWE gives us last-minute surprises.
During the latest edition of 'Smack Talk' on Sportskeeda, former WWE manager Dutch Mantell previewed Extreme Rules. “If we did not look at the name of the PPV on the banner ads, we would doubt that it is not Extreme Rules.
The last episode of SmackDown also passed without any special stipulations being announced. I believe that Vince McMahon and his management intend to amaze the audience during the opera. We will see a large number of twists during the show, I would put my hand on the fire” - said, Dutch Mantell.

Dutch Mantell also talked about Becky Lynch's recent turn heel, who returned to SummerSlam after more than a year of absence. “My take on Becky is that most people still love her. She is doing everything she can to be a successful heel, but they won't let her through.
It is as if she is fighting a battle that she cannot win. Too many fans are devoted to her and Lynch is trying to piss them off, but things are not going well." The Usos and The Street Profits collide at Extreme Rules for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship once again.
These two teams have been feuding for the best part of their time on SmackDown together and now The Profits will finally have the chance to take back their titles. It has been a while since The Street Profits have held the gold since they lost the Championship to Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler, who then lost them to The Mysterios, who then dropped them to The Usos as part of the Money in the Bank kick-off show.
