WWE Extreme Rules: The Horror Show, seemingly named after the company’s business practices of late, comes our way on Sunday, July 19.
As of right now, four matches have been confirmed, those being:
- Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler – WWE Championship
- Asuka (c) vs. Sasha Banks – Raw Women’s Championship
- Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt – Wyatt Swamp Fight
- Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross – SmackDown Women’s Championship
Several more matches have been teased or reported as likely being added to the card, so we’re going to take a look at seven more bouts that could make the show.
Of course, with the COVID-19 situation developing, it’s possible that by the time the show comes around, certain things may have changed and people may be unavailable, but we’ll go off what we know now.
Big Show vs. Randy Orton
Barring anything happening to either man meaning they can’t be on the show, this one seems all but official.
Orton has laid waste to both Edge and Christian with punts in recent weeks, and Show looks to be the next man on the revitalised Legend Killer’s list to extinguish.
Orton wasn’t on Raw last night, but Big Show was, in conflict with Ric Flair who helped Orton get the better of Christian a couple of weeks ago.
Flair tried to inspire Andrade and Angel Garza to weaken Big Show, but to no real avail, and it should only be a matter of time before a match with Orton goes down.
Street Profits (c) vs. Angel Garza & Andrade – Raw Tag Team Championship
Speaking of the world’s sexiest man and Andrade, it looks like they’re going to be next in line to challenge for the Raw Tag Team Championship, despite their differences.
The duo picked up a win yesterday over the Viking Raiders, who are they only other credible team other than the Street Profits on the brand.
They did, however, lose to Big Show in a handicap match too, but even then it would be a very strange decision to put them over the Raiders and not have it lead to a title match.
It’s been reported that at one point the plan was for them to win the straps, but whether that actually happens remains to be seen. From what we’ve been seeing recently, a Garza vs Andrade singles match at SummerSlam doesn’t seem out of the question either.
Seth Rollins vs. Rey Mysterio
This has been brewing ever since the Raw after Money in the Bank back in May, and while Rollins vs Mysterio is a match of SummerSlam calibre based on name value alone, a bout at Extreme Rules is looking likely.
With Rollins having killed Mysterio’s eye with the steel stairs, and trying to do the same to Dominik/c/ck (WWE can’t decide how to spell it so I’ll cover all bases), Aleister Black and Humberto Carrillo of late, the possibility of this being a stairs match has been thrown around too.
Dominik/c/ck has been very prevalent in this program, and whether the goal is for him to end up in a match during it or not, it certainly doesn’t feel like something that will just end at Extreme Rules and be moved on from.
From what we have seen, a Rollins vs Mysterio match at Extreme Rules, leading to something at SummerSlam possibly involving Dominik/c/ck, seems the best bet right now.
