It’s a busy weekend for wrestling fans. Saturday saw both AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling put on high-profile wrestling events, but the biggest show of the weekend is WWE’s Extreme Rules. The pay-per-view, broadcast live on the WWE Network, is themed around hardcore matches. That means no rules, and weapons are encouraged.
But there should be some terrific wrestling, too. AJ Styles vs. Ricochet for the US Championship, Aleister Black vs. Cesaro and Samoa Joe vs. Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship all have the potential to be standout matches.
The main event will see Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch put their titles on the line (Universal Championship and Raw Women’s Championship, respectively) against Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans in a winner-take-all match. Elsewhere, The Undertaker will return to tag with Roman Reigns against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre.
We’ll be updating this page, once the main card starts, with recaps on all the action, segments, title changes, surprises, great memes and match ratings.
Extreme Rules’s hour-long preshow had two matches, one of which crowned a new champion. Here are the quick results.
Shinsuke Nakamura wins the Intercontinental Championship from Finn Balor: Nakamura pinned Balor after a Kinshasa knee.
Drew Gulak retains the Cruiswerweight Championship: Gulak pinned Tony Nese with a Cyclone Clash.
