The 2019 Extreme Rules pay-per-view event is just over two months away, but already the Wells Fargo Centre are releasing promotional material revealing the card’s top matches. The show’s supposed line-up features some pretty interesting matches, providing us with some fresh faces in the championship pictures. Obviously the following details include potential spoilers for the upcoming Money in the Bank event, you have been warned.
The main event of the show is set to be a triple threat match for the WWE Championship, with Kofi Kingston defending his title against Kevin Owens and Randy Orton. From this, it’s safe to assume that Kofi will be walking out of Sunday’s pay-per-view victorious, but the feud with Owens isn’t going to end there. Somehow, Randy Orton is going to get involved too, whether that means he’ll be successfully cashing up his second briefcase or continuing to dominate the mid-card is down to speculation. Either way, this should make for a really fun match, hopefully giving the Orton/Kofi saga from 2009/2010 a satisfying conclusion.
Raw’s main event is going to be a tables match between Universal Champion Seth Rollins and Baron Corbin. Unless WWE choose to reverse plans now that these details have been leaked, Seth will be walking away with the win this Sunday over dream match opponent, AJ Styles. On the other side of that very exciting feud is Baron Corbin, which I’m sure will be a very polarising choice for Seth’s next championship feud. Nevertheless, the inevitable pay-off of Corbin being a general dick, will be the champ putting him through a table or three.
Roman Reigns is also on the card, facing 2 on 1 odds against Shane McMahon and Elias. So if you’re already sick of seeing beatdowns on Roman, then you best be prepared to grit your teeth for a little while longer. The aforementioned AJ Styles will also be in action against Drew McIntyre, perhaps to set up the Summerslam opponent for Seth Rollins or Baron Corbin.
Extreme Rules will be taking place on the 14th of July in Phillidelpha, plans for this card may indeed change over the next week, especially with Money in the Bank on the horizon. WWE tend to provide venues with a generic card based on the current storylines, just to act as a draw whilst they play out in the meantime. But either way, this looks very plausible.
