The following matches are advertised for the WWE Extreme Rules event that will be held on July 14 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Wells Fargo Center.
-Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch vs. Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans for the WWE Universal Championship and the Raw Women’s Championship.
-Kofi Kingston vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship.
-Undertaker and Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre.
Powell’s POV: WWE added the WWE Championship match on Tuesday afternoon. The “winners take all” stipulation of the mixed tag match is that both titles are on the line, but if Rollins and Lynch win then Corbin and Evans will not be able to challenge Rollins and Lynch for those titles going forward. WWE also seems to be building toward Ricochet vs. AJ Styles for the U.S. Championship, The Revival vs. The Usos for the Raw Tag Titles, and some type of gimmick match involving Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley.
