WWE Extreme Rules 2013 match card: Dean Ambrose gets U.S. title shot against Kofi Kingston

WWE

For whatever reason, WWE has booked Dean Ambrose to challenge Kofi Kingston for the United States championship at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on Sun., May 19, 2013, in St. Louis.

Well, this could be potentially wonderful news or it could be disastrous: WWE announced tonight (May 13, 2013) on Monday Night Raw that Dean Ambrose will challenge Kofi Kingston for the United States championship at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV) this Sunday night in St. Louis.

From the WWE.com preview:

This Sunday at Extreme Rules, "The Wildcat" will look to repel the challenge of one of the calculating "Hounds of Justice," as fearless, high-flying United States Champion Kofi Kingston defends his illustrious title against The Shield's most erratic and, fittingly, "extreme" member, Dean Ambrose.

After going head-to-head with The Brothers of Destruction in back-to-back weeks on SmackDown - and using The Shield's numbers advantage to decimate both the legendary Undertaker and Kane with a pair of vicious post-match assaults - the volatile Ambrose's first opportunity at priceless WWE title gold comes against a three-time U.S. Champion who is dangerous and unpredictable in his own right.

This could mean Ambrose will win the title and be booked into the living death like every other U.S. champion in recent memory. That would be bad. Or it could mean he wins the belt and Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins win the tag team titles to make The Shield a supergroup holding nearly all the mid-card straps. That would be good.

Stay tuned.
