Several Changes Made To WWE Extreme Rules Card

Several Changes Made To WWE Extreme Rules Card

Tonight’s WWE SmackDown Live saw several changes made to matches at July 14’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

First of all, during the opening Kevin Owens show segment, Shane McMahon announced that his tag match with Drew McIntyre against Roman Reigns and The Undertaker will now be a No Holds Barred match.

In the same segment, Shane set up a match for later in the show where Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler – who were bickering about who deserved the next WWE Title shot – would team up against Heavy Machinery.

After going around the houses a bit, Shane stated that the winning team would be added to the SmackDown Tag Title match at Extreme Rules to make it a three-way.

In something of an upset, Heavy Machinery won the match after miscommunication between Owens and Ziggler, meaning Extreme Rules will now be Daniel Bryan & Rowan vs. New Day vs. Heavy Machinery.

An angle following the tag bout saw Owens drill Ziggler with a Stunner due to him costing them the match with an accidental superkick. Although not confirmed, it seems likely this will end up on the PPV as well.

The current card:

  • The Undertaker & Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre – No Holds Barred
  • Seth Rollins & Becky Lynch vs. Baron Corbin & Lacey Evans – Extreme Rules Winner Takes All
  • Kofi Kingston vs. Samoa Joe – WWE Title
  • Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss – SmackDown Women’s Title
  • Daniel Bryan & Rowan vs. New Day vs. Heavy Machinery – SmackDown Tag Team Title
  • Drew Gulak vs. Tony Nese – Cruiserweight Title
