The following matches are advertised for the WWE Extreme Rules event that will be held on Sunday, July 19 at the WWE Performance Center.
-WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt in a non-title Swamp Fight.
-Asuka vs. Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s Championship.
-Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Championship (Ziggler chooses the stipulation).
-Bayley vs. Nikki Cross for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
-Apollo Crews vs. MVP for the U.S. Championship.
-Seth Rollins vs. Rey Mysterio in an eye for an eye match.
