WWE Extreme Rules 2017 full match previews: Fatal 5Way featuring Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Finn Bálor, Bray Wyatt, Samoa Joe, Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley, more!

Don't miss WWE's Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV), streamed live on WWE Network!

Live from Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, this will be the ninth Extreme Rules in WWE history, and the latest Raw-only PPV in the company’s new brand split era - and the first to feature only red brand talent since the post-WrestleMania 33 "Superstar Shake-up".

With Universal champion Brock Lesnar not defending his title July’s PPV, General Manager Kurt Angle needed a main event for this show - and he also needed a way to determine who would face the Beast Incarnate at Great Balls of Fire. So he took the men who were both healthy enough to fight and who had a good case to be #1 contender and put them in a Fatal 5Way with the a shot at Lesnar on the line. Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Finn Bálor, Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe will do whatever it takes to earn a title opportunity.

Anything goes in that match. That’s not quite true of the rest of the card, but there are stipulations befitting the show’s name in each of the other five bouts. Dean Ambrose puts his Intercontinental title up against The Miz in a match where if the champ is disqualified, the challenger wins the strap. Bayley tries to reclaim the Women’s championship from Alexa Bliss in a Kendo Stick on a Pole affair, while the Hardyz will defend their tag straps when they step in a steel cage with Cesaro & Sheamus.

Two 205 Live matches round out the line-up (at least what’s been announced as of Saturday morning, anyway). Sasha Banks joins forces with Rich Swann to deal with lovebirds Noam Dar & Alicia Fox in mixed tag action, while Austin Aries gets his third shot at dethroning the king when he faces Cruiserweight champ Neville in a submission match.

A pre-show leads into the three hour main show, and features a panel discussion of all the matches with hosts Renee Young, David Otunga, Peter Rosenberg and others. You can find the Kickoff on WWE Network and YouTube (among other places - like right here at cSs!).

The main broadcast will begin at 8PM ET/5PM PT. For all the ways to watch this annual event, sign-up at, or consult you cable or satellite provider.

We'll have everything you need to get ready for Extreme Rules, as well as coverage during the show and all the fallout afterwards, right here at cSs!
