Two Matches Added To WWE Extreme Rules
The "Horror Show" takes shape...
Two more matches have been added to next month's WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view, including a title bout, and a "cinematic" match.
Nikki Cross is now the number one contender for the SmackDown Women's title, having defeated Lacey Evans, Dana Brooke, and partner Alexa Bliss in a fatal four way match on Friday night, after pinning Evans.
She will challenge brand champion Bayley, whose own partner Sasha Banks challenges Raw Women's champion Asuka on the same night.
Additionally, Universal champion Braun Strowman takes on former leader Bray Wyatt in a "Wyatt Swamp Fight" that will not be for the title.
The two have a shared history, as Strowman entered WWE as a mask-wearing follower of Bray in The Wyatt Family back in 2015. Strowman retained the Universal title over Wyatt at Money in the Bank this past May.
The current card for WWE Extreme Rules, scheduled for Sunday, July 19 from the WWE Performance Center, is as follows:
*WWE World: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler
*Non Title "Wyatt Swamp Fight": Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt
*Raw Women's: Asuka (c) vs. Sasha Banks
*SmackDown Women's: Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross
