Updated on July 14th: This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live came across a major announcement: James Ellsworth will be suspended over the ring inside a shark cage while Carmella defends the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Asuka at Extreme Rules.
WWE announced another match for Sunday’s Extreme Rules in the final hours.
A rematch will take place between Andrade “Cien” Almas and Sin Cara. The match has been added to the kickoff show. Sin Cara lost his previous match against Almas on SmackDown Live, so this might be the opportunity for the Luchador to get things even.
