WWE Extreme Rules 2019: Full Match Card Breakdown, Bold Predictions and More. Date: Sunday night at 7 p.m. ET.
The WWE Extreme Rules event has finally arrived, with the annual show going down on Sunday Philadelphia inside the Wells Fargo Center. There are plenty of exciting few of which have the usual stipulations attached that make them that much more meaningful and anticipated. Extreme Rules will begin on Sunday night at 7 p.m. ET on the WWE Network, with the kickoff show beginning at 6.
Despite that, it’s a fairly loaded lineup on paper, almost every active championship being defended. There is also slated to a few exciting matches, such as Aleister Black vs. Cesaro and Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley, that are bound to be barn-burners.
WWE’s lackluster build to the pay-per-view hasn’t left fans overly anticipating this event. Similar to Stomping Grounds, however, the promotion can still exceed expectations by delivering a standout show.
More importantly, it will interesting to see how Extreme Rules lays the groundwork for SummerSlam in August and which feuds will conclude. It’s time to break down the card and make bold predictions for what could go down in Philly.
Gulak and Nese have traded victories on countless occasions, including in tournaments for the title they will be fighting for Sunday. At Stomping Grounds, Gulak pinned Akira Tozawa in a Triple Threat match also involving Nese to become the new cruiserweight champion.
Now with the gold in his grasp, Gulak is ready to finally make 205 Live the show he has always wanted it to be but first must defeat Nese at Extreme Rules. There won’t be anything extreme about this encounter, and in a straight-up wrestling match, Gulak will always hold the advantage.
Shane McMahon’s reign of terror should have ended at WrestleMania 35, but back-to-back victories over The Miz on pay-per-view led to his becoming a regular on Raw and SmackDown Live. He has done much more to hinder the WWE product than help it.
Drew McIntyre and the McMahon family scion have been a massive thorn in Reigns’ side for months. The Big Dog is well aware that he can’t move up the pecking order on SmackDown until he gives Shane his comeuppance, and in order to do so, he needed an ally.
