Well, it’s almost that time of the wrestling calendar again – the “one time a year when WWE gets extreme!”
While last year’s show was re-branded as WWE Extreme Rules: The Horror Show, the WWE Universe will be hoping that title doesn’t reflect this year’s show – which could see Becky Lynch’s first scheduled match back in a WWE ring in over a year after a very short cameo to win the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam. The woman she won the title from, Bianca Belair, is rumoured to be The Man’s opponent.
Meanwhile, Roman Reigns holds the Universal Championship, Big E is the WWE Champion, Charlotte Flair is the RAW Women’s Champion, Shinsuke Nakamura is the Intercontinental Champion, and Damian Priest is the United States Champion. The tag team gold is held by RK-Bro on the red brand, The Usos on the blue brand, and Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. in the women’s division. While it’s not a certainty every title will be defended on the show, conclusions can be drawn that most of said championships are likely to be up for grabs with at least one Extreme Rules Match scheduled for the show.
