Hardys to face Cesaro & Sheamus at Extreme Rules

We learned last week the Hardys next tag title defense would be a rematch of the bout we saw at Payback. Cesaro & Sheamus survived a tag turmoil gauntlet on the May 8 Raw in London to earn the right to challenge Matt & Jeff Hardy for the belts again.

A short time ago, WWE officials informed the champs of when their next defense will take place. Since it will occur at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV), and seeing as they already fought in the Hardys signature, a ladder match, when Team Xtreme returned at WrestleMania 33, we assume a stipulation will be added.

That hasn’t officially happened yet, but in the above video where the brothers talk about their upcoming title bout and Jeff’s match with Sheamus tonight on Raw, the Charismatic Enigma lets slip that a “no disqualification would be perfect” - so that’s probably where we’re headed.

It’s the first match announced for the June 4 show in Baltimore.

Will this be where Matt gets #Broken once more? We’ll find out in a few weeks.
