The next pay-per-view (PPV) -- err, "special event" -- on the WWE schedule is the Extreme Rules show set to take place on Sun., May 4, 2014, at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the company's annual post WrestleMania hardcore showcase.
We're just one week out from showtime and there are now multiple matches official for the card. Let's get to it:
- Daniel Bryan vs. Kane
The match was made official on Raw last week before Kane destroyed Bryan to write him off television so he could go tend to his business following his father's death. WWE announced he isn't expected to miss the go home Raw tomorrow night, however.
- Evolution vs. The Shield
The Shield first went up against Corporate Kane, then crossed the boss, Triple H, leading to the reformation of Evolution and a six-man tag match that just had to happen.
- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
Cena defeated Wyatt clean as a whistle at WrestleMania 30. Then he played around with photoshop to clown on the entire Wyatt Family. Then he beat all three of them in a 3-on-1 handicap match on Raw last week. I have no idea what the point of this match is, but it's happening.
- Paige vs. Tamina
AJ Lee is on hiatus, so Tamina stepped in as the first opponent for Paige in her first defense of the Divas title.
- Big E vs. Intercontinental title tournament winner
The finals of the number one contender tournament will be held on Raw tomorrow night with Bad News Barrett taking on Rob Van Dam. It would seem Barrett is getting a nice push here but they could always throw a swerve and feed RVD to the Big E machine, though it's getting a bit rusty lately.
- Alexander Rusev vs. R-Truth & Xavier Woods
Rusev has been CRUSHing cans for a few weeks now and because Truth and Woods were two of those cans who actually operate as a tag team, a 2-on-1 handicap match was booked. They're still cans, but they're together and this will likely be something more than a squash but not much.
That's the card, Cagesiders. Your thoughts?
