Two Matches Announced For WWE Extreme Rules
WWE made a major announcement for Extreme Rules on this week’s Fastlane go-home edition of Monday Night RAW.
Extreme Rules will take place on July 14 from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia which was the home for RAW this week.
Per the announcement, Roman Reigns will battle Baron Corbin while Seth Rollins will take on Drew McIntyre at the pay-per-view 4 months from now.
While two members of The Shield were announced for post-WrestleMania PPV, Dean Ambrose was left out as the management isn’t quite sure about whether The Moral Compass will be sticking around after April 7 although the current belief is that Ambrose will be re-signing with WWE and extending his stay in the company.
Asuka Confirms Her Status After Recent Injury Scare
During a SmackDown Live house show in White Plains on Monday night, SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka got injured during her match against Mandy Rose.
The Empress took a nasty bump; according to the live crowd, Asuka landed awkwardly on her head.
Officials quickly attended the champ as the match was called off and she was taken to the backstage area.
Later on, Asuka took to Twitter to assure fans that she is doing fine.
The New Day Vs. The Undisputed ERA
During a recent interview with SportsKeeda, Big E revealed that his plan is to battle another hot faction, The Undisputed ERA, but the NXT stable has to receive its main roster call-up for the epic match to happen.
“Undisputed ERA. It’s very cool to see another faction. Those guys can be very viable in the Tag Team picture and the world title picture as well. I know we’ve shown that as of late, with Kofi being in the world title picture and us obviously holding the Tag Titles for a while.”
“So, I think factions are awesome. I love the Tag Team stuff. We’ve been doing that for so long. But factions just give you so many options. 6-mans and singles and tags. Those guys have a lot of steam right now. And they’ve been killing it for a while. So, at least for the last couple of years, that’s what comes to mind.”
The New Day vs. The Undisputed Era will definitely be a WrestleMania-worthy feud given the Superstars in both factions have immense in-ring chemistry and are pioneers in tearing the house apart.
