Date: May 22 2016 | Attendance: T.B.C | Venue: Prudential Center | City: Newark, New Jersey
The eighth edition of the Extreme Rules event will be aired on 22/05/2016 from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The event was originally slated to be held on 01/05/2015 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena but was switched with the Payback 2016 event. The event was aired live across various pay-per-view channels across the globe including a live stream on the WWE Network.
The main event of Extreme Rules sees a rematch from last months WWE Payback. Roman Reigns defends his championship against AJ Styles; a match announced after the chaotic championship match. Also at the show, The Miz will defend his Intercontinental Championship against three other men in a Fatal Four Way match.
Several matches were made on the post Payback episode of WWE Raw. Charlotte and Natalya will battle it out in a submission match, Ric Flair is banned from ringside. Rusev won a battle royal to become number one contender to Kalisto’s United States championship.
On 16th May episode of Raw, Chris Jericho accepted Dean Ambrose challenge to an Asylum match. From what we can work out, this will be a no escape cage match with “Asylum” style weapons (think TNA Lethal Lockdown).
