WWE Extreme Rules 2018

15 Jul 2018

WWE Extreme Rules 2018 if the 7th Pay-Per-View of WWE's calendar. Extreme Rules is filled with matches holding various "extreme" stipulations. The theme of the PPV is violence, and like last year, Extreme Rules 2018 will be no different.

The first match announced for WWE Extreme Rules will see the WWE Champion AJ Styles have his 8th title defence against Rusev. This will be the first singles world championship opportunity for The Bulgarian Brute. It's undoubtedly an extremely interesting matchup, as Rusev has come a long way from his days of being an Anti-American heel.

The popularity of Rusev Day saw him "unofficially" turn face for the first time. As of now, it's still not clear where he stands. The matches announced on the card are:


AJ Styles(c) vs Rusev - WWE Championship

Alexa Bliss(c) vs Nia Jax - Extreme Rules Match For The RAW Women's Championship

Carmella(c) vs Asuka - SmackDown Women's Championship

Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt(c) vs The B-Team - RAW Tag Team Championship

The Bludgeon Brothers(c) vs Team Hell No - SmackChampionship

Dolph Ziggler(c) vs Seth Rollins - 30-minute Iron Man Match for the Intercontinental Championship

Jeff Hardy(c) vs Shinsuke Nakamura - United States Championship

Roman Reigns vs Bobby Lashley

Finn Balor vs Baron Corbin

Kevin Owens vs Braun Strowman - Steel Cage


Extreme Rules 2017 saw several stipulation matches, such as a "Kendo stick on a pole" match, a classic steel cage bout, a submission match and the signature Extreme Rules match. WWE Extreme Rules 2018 will very likely hold a series of stipulation matches different from the prior year.

It's very likely that the multi-man RAW match will hold the Extreme Rules stipulation, and will main event the show. It is questionable that the WWE Championship won't main event for the 4th straight PPV but the star power in the multi-man match will probably answer that.

It is true that the main events of Extreme Rules main events over the past few years have delivered and more.

Here are some incredible Extreme Rules classics from the past you should check out to get you excited about the event!


Edge vs Jeff Hardy - 2009
