Extreme Rules: WWE announces 3 more matches for the upcoming Pay per view

Extreme Rules: WWE announces 3 more matches for the upcoming Pay per view. There are now 5 confirmed matches for the July 14th event.

The WWE have wasted no time in setting up matches for their next Pay per View. With Stomping Grounds done and dusted, they have their sights set on Extreme Rules and have already announced 5 matches in this week alone.

Two huge matches were announced on Raw this week. A further 3 have been added on Tuesday.

Drew Gulak © Vs Tony Nese (Cruiserweight Championship match)

Tony Nese took on Drew Gulak and Akira Tozawa in a triple threat match at the pre-show of Stomping grounds in an amazing match. Gulak won the purple prize by pinning Tozawa. On Tuesday, Tony Nese overcame Tozawa to earn his rematch for the Cruiserweight championship at Extreme Rules.

Kofi Kingston © Vs Samoa Joe (WWE Championship)

Kofi Kingston was ambushed by Samoa Joe on Raw. The WWE confirmed on Tuesday that the dreadlocked dynamo would defend his championship against Samoa Joe at Extreme Rules. Ziggler tried to insert himself into the match and faced Kofi in a 2 out of 3 falls. The Show off though, failed to overcome Kofi and is now out of contention.

However, something must be said about Joe being put into the WWE Championship picture right after losing the United States championship to Ricochet. For anyone not keeping track, Joe has lost his last two singles matches and has gone on to earn a chance at the top prize of a brand he’s not even a part of.

Bayley © Vs Alexa Bliss (SmackDown Women’s championship)

At least Joe ambushed Kofi and choked him out. Alexa Bliss, another Raw superstar, will challenge Bayley once again at Extreme Rules, riding on Nikki Cross’ victory over Bayley.

Bayley had just recently spoken of her desire to face new opponents. Well, looks like the WWE wasn’t listening. Hopefully Bliss loses and they keep her away from the Women’s championship for a while and focus on the pay off for her story with Nikki Cross.

Possible matches hinted at SmackDown

Aleister Black vs Randy Orton

The pair have had a few matches at live events. With Black itching for a fight, maybe Orton will respond to the newcomer’s challenge.

The IIconics © vs The Kabuki Warriors (Women’s Tag team championship)

The IIconics are yet to defend their title’s in a pay per view since they won the titles at Wrestlemania. The duo was seen discussing the pair of Asuka and Kairi Sane on SmackDown. They claimed to not be worry about them but they did not sound convincing.

The Kabuki Warriors will definitely leave Japan the victors, but will that translate into a title reign in the future?

Finn Balor © Vs Shinsuke Nakamura (Intercontinental Championship)

Speaking of Japan, Shinsuke Nakamura is finally back on TV, for only 15 seconds though. However, that 15 seconds was enough to send the crowd in a frenzy. Now imagine the crowd reaction if the WWE only booked him right.

On SmackDown while talking about who his possible opponent could be, the King of Strong Style walked out, tapped his title with a Too Sweet before making his way out. Hopefully their fight will be just as good as it was down at NXT.

This is what the WWE Extreme Rules match card looks like at the moment

Extreme Rules will take place on July 14, 2019, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It will stream live on the WWE network.
