WWE Extreme Rules 2020 match card, rumors

The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Extreme Rules event set to take place next Sun., July 19, 2020, at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. This year’s show has been given the theme “Horror Show,” probably because of the whole eyeball thing. We’ll get into that in a moment.

With a week to showtime, the card looks like this:

  • Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler for the WWE championship

Dolph’s got a stipulation in mind, but he’s not sharing it with McIntyre or us yet. Drew’s already rumored to have Randy Orton on his dance card for SummerSlam.

  • Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt in a Swamp Fight

Worth noting that Braun’s Universal title will not be on the line in this cinematic showdown. Which probably means this is act two of a story that will end when Braun faces The Fiend at the Biggest Party of the Summer.

  • Sasha Banks vs. Asuka (c) for the Raw women’s title

Banks laid down this challenge with the hopes she would become a double champion just like her tag team partner, Bayley. The feud’s travelled through NXT, brought back Kairi Sane, and will involve Kabuki Warriors challenging the Role Models for their WWE Women’s Tag Team championship on Raw tomorrow night.

  • Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross for the SmackDown women’s championship

Cross helped Asuka beat Bayley last Monday, but she & Alexa Bliss were outsmarted by The Boss & Dos Straps on the latest SmackDown.

  • Seth Rollins vs. Rey Mysterio in an Eye For An Eye match

Seth tried to put Rey’s eye out on the ring steps, and there’s been a lot of eyeball-focused offense from all involved since then. Mysterio decided the only way to settle things is with a bout where the winner has to yank an eye out of the loser’s face. This will allegedly be accomplished via CGI.

  • MVP vs. Apollo Crews (c) for the United States title

Technically, both men will bring a belt to this one, since MVP unveiled a newly re-designed U.S. championship last Monday. The official write-up for their PPV tilt says the winner gets the fresh strap.

A Sheamus/Jeff Hardy Bar Fight was announced on SmackDown, but WWE hasn’t officially added it to the card for next Sunday yet.

AJ Styles vs. Matt Riddle, Riddle vs. King Corbin, Big Show vs. Randy Orton, Street Profits vs. Andrade & Angel Garza, The New Day vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro, Naomi vs. Lacey Evans, Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan vs. IIconics, and R-Truth vs. Akira Tozawa and/or ninjas have all been set-up or hinted at over the past few weeks. There’s talk Extreme Rules will feature a ton of short matches this year.
