Extreme Rules Match Predictions

WWE’s Extreme Rules features a total of 10 matches on the pay-per-view card. The card is very solid and features entertaining match-ups.

WWE’s Extreme Rules features a total of 10 matches on the pay-per-view card. The card is very solid and features entertaining match-ups. However, for a pay-per-view named Extreme Rules, the lack of extreme match stipulations is disappointing. I can be wrong, but I think every champion will retain. Overall, I’m predicting Extreme Rules to be entertaining but predictable.

Seth Rollins (Universal Champion) and Becky Lynch (Raw Women’s Champion) vs. Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans

Last Chance Winners Take All mixed tag team Extreme Rules match for both the WWE Universal Championship and WWE Raw Women’s Championship

Winner: Brollins

Who I Would Book to Win: Brollins

There is really nothing extreme about this match. Just a long and confusing match stipulation. “Last Chance Winners Take All mixed tag team Extreme Rules match for both the WWE Universal Championship and WWE Raw Women’s Championship.” Yeah. This match is a no brainer. Team Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins, Team Brollins, will retain. It’s clear WWE is pushing Brollins as the new “it” couple. Can’t see either of them losing any time soon.

Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship

Winner: Kofi Kingston

Who I Would Book to Win: Kofi Kingston

The build-up for this match has been great for both Kofi Kingston (the face champion) and Samoa Joe (the ruthless heel). Joe is just the right opponent Kingston needs to help prove he is the champ we deserve. Kingston will win, but he will not beat Joe. He’ll take all of Joe’s punishment, but in the end, outsmart Joe.

Bayley (c) vs. Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross Handicap match for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship

Winner: Bayley

Who I Would Book to Win: Bayley

The match was slightly harder to predict. I can see the match ending three ways. 1. Bayley retains and goes on to face a challenger at SummerSlam next month. 2. Either Nikki Cross or Alexa Bliss pins Bayley to become the first-ever SmackDown Women’s Co-champions. 3. Bliss pins Bayley and turns on Cross. While all three endings are intriguing, the most intriguing thing about this match is if Bayley’s BBF, Sasha Banks will return to WWE.

Ricochet (c) vs. AJ Styles for the WWE United States Championship

Winner: Ricochet

Who I Would Book to Win: Ricochet

Ricochet vs AJ Styles has the potential to be the Match of the Night (MotN) or a Match of the Year (MotY). According to backstage WWE rumors in the IWC, Paul Heyman is a huge Ricochet supporter. If this is true, Ricochet will have prosperous United States Championship reign. But most importantly, we, the fans could be in for some exciting rivalries and matches.

The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) (c) vs. The Usos (Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso) for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship

Winner: The Revival

Who I Would Book to Win: The Revival

The build-up for this match has been underwhelming. In fact, it seems as if the match was just thrown on the card. But this match has the potential to be super fun. I’m predicting The Revival to win. But if The Revival retains, what’s next the Raw Tag Team champs.

Daniel Bryan and Rowan (c) vs. The New Day (Big E and Xavier Woods) vs. Heavy Machinery (Otis and Tucker) for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship

Winner: Daniel Bryan and Rowan

Who I Would Book to Win: Daniel Bryan and Rowan

Unlike the Raw Tag Team Championship match, the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match has had more TV time and more build-up. Each team has been showcased as a possible winner. Yet, I’m predicting Daniel Bryan and Rowan will win. Loved the SmackDown go-home segment and the Daniel Bryan vs Xavier Woods vs Otis Triple Threat match. I’m hoping that match is a sign that the tag team championship match will be fire and the tag team match of the Night (MotN). 

Drew Gulak (c) vs. Tony Nese for WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Winner: Drew Gulak

Who I Would Book to Win: Drew Gulak

The 205 Live championship scene just hasn’t been the same since the departure of Ali, Buddy Murphy, and Cedric Alexander. It’s not that the match quality has decreased. It’s more of a storyline issue. The championship scene lacks heart, soul and a crucial heel.  Maybe Drew Gulak is the heel champion 205 Live needs, for a better 205 Live.

Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley

Last Man Standing Match

Winner: Braun Strowman

Who I Would Book to Win: Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman vs Bobby Lashley is one of the few matches on the Extreme Rules card that actually features an extreme match stipulation. A last man standing match is perfect for these two, especially after their explosive match on Raw on July 1. According to backstage WWE rumors in the IWC, Strowman will be returning to his monster roots. So I’m predicting Strowman to get the win.

The Undertaker and Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre

No Holds Barred Tag Team Match

Winner: The Undertaker and Roman Reigns

Who I Would Book to Win: The Undertaker and Roman Reigns

This match is my least favorite match on the pay-per-view. Since it’s inception, I have not been a fan of The Best in the World Shane McMahon storyline. I’m also underwhelmed by The Undertaker’s involvement in this storyline. Is there any redemption for The Undertaker after his match with Goldberg at the Saudi Arabian show? Personally, I would prefer if The Deadman’s spot in the match would have been given to Kevin Owens or Cedric Alexander. I’m predicting The Undertaker and Roman Reigns to win.

Aleister Black vs. Cesaro

Winner: Aleister Black

Who I Would Book to Win: Aleister Black

It’s been weeks since WWE has been teasing an Aleister Black feud. Basically, Black has been itching for a fight. Just waiting for someone to knock on his door and pick a fight with him. Well, someone knocked on Black’s door and it was Cesaro. This match is my pick for MotN. I’m sure Black will be picking up the win.
