Extreme Rules

WWE have confirmed that Extreme Rules will take place on September 26th in Columbus, Ohio.

The show which will be held at the Nationwide Arena will be the 13th event under the Extreme Rules banner.

The first ever Extreme Rules event was held in 2009. The main event saw Jeff Hardy defeat Edge in a Ladder Match for the World Heavyweight Championship. However, Hardy wasn’t left much time to celebrate as CM Punk successfully cashed in his Money In The Bank contract.

The 2020 edition of the show was called The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic the event was broadcast from the WWE Performance Center. The show had initially been scheduled to take place at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.

In the main event ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt defeated Braun Strowman in a Wyatt Swamp Fight.

At SummerSlam it was also announced that WWE would be returning to Saudi Arabia in October for Crown Jewel.

The show will be WWE’s first in the Kingdom since Super ShowDown in February 2020. The show was main evented by the clash between Goldberg and ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship.

It had earlier been reported by Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast, that the finals of both the King and the newly created Queen of the Ring would be held in the Kingdom.

WWE will also be returning to Las Vegas for Money In The Bank on 4th of July weekend in 2022. The show will emanate from the Allegiant Stadium which played host to SummerSlam.
