2 Title Matches Announced For WWE Extreme Rules 2020
Former friends will collide on July 19...
WWE's next pay-per-view is just under a month away as Extreme Rules 2020 will be broadcast on the WWE Network. This will be the second major show in the Bruce Prichard era of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown and fans will be hoping for better results than much of Backlash 2020.
The first two matches were added to the event last night as Dolph Ziggler interrupted Drew McIntyre during Monday Night Raw. The Showoff announced he had been traded to the red brand along with his tag team partner Robert Roode and told The Scottish Psychopath the only reason he is WWE Champion is because of their shared history. He then demanded a title match at Extreme Rules. McIntyre was happy to oblige as he called Ziggler an entitled jackass and accepted his challenge.
Asuka's next opponent was also revealed as Sasha Banks challenged The Empress Of Tomorrow to a Raw Women's Championship at Extreme Rules. The challenge came after The Golden Role Models retained the Women's Tag Team Championships against The IIconics and The Legit Boss admitted she was jealous of her best friend. She then teased challenging Bayley for the SmackDown's Women's Title but called out Asuka instead. The two women will now face off on July 19.
Check out the card for Extreme Rules 2020 below:
• Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler - WWE Championship
• Asuka (c) vs. Sasha Banks - Raw Women's Championship
