WWE Extreme Rules premium live event is set to take place this Saturday from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Six matches are confirmed for the event including two Championship bouts.
Extreme Rules will air at 8 p.m. ET and the kickoff show is starting one hour before the main card at 7 p.m. Fans in the United States has able to watch the show on Peacock and others can watch the event on WWE Network as usual.
Here are the WWE Extreme Rules Predictions.
Liv Morgan (c) vs. Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in an Extreme Rules Match.
Liv Morgan became the SmackDown Women’s Champion by cashing in her MITB contract on Ronda Rousey at Money in the Bank. Rousey then challenged Liv for the Title at SummerSlam, which was won by Liv in a controversial fashion.
The Baddest Woman on the Planet earned another championship opportunity by winning a fatal five-way elimination match on the September 9th episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
WWE built Liv Morgan as an underdog and she is trying to get respect by defeating Ronda Rousey for a third time this Saturday. Meanwhile, Rousey is expecting to avoid losing to Liv Morgan three times in a row. Our Prediction: Liv Morgan retains her SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross in a Strap Match.
On the August 5th episode of Friday Night SmackDown, Karrion Kross along with Scarlett returned to WWE, where Kross attacked Drew McIntyre. Kross then issued several warnings to McIntyre through promos and he even distracted McIntyre in the main event of Clash at the Castle PLE.
Both superstars need to win here. McIntyre suffered a huge loss to Roman Reigns at Clash at the Castle and he must win this bout to recover his momentum. Meanwhile, Kross just returned to WWE and he needs a big win to establish himself as a threat to Roman Reigns on SmackDown. Our Prediction: Karrion Kross wins the match.
The Brawling Brutes vs. Imperium in a Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook Match.
The Brawling Brutes and Imperium are built as tough teams on SmackDown. The leaders of both teams Sheamus and Gunther had an impressive match at Clash at the Castle last month. Now, Sheamus is scheduled to face Gunther for the Intercontinental Title for the second time tonight on SmackDown and the outcome of the bout will impact Saturday’s six-man tag team match. With an Irish-themed stipulation, The Brawling Brutes could win the bout to regain some momentum. Our Prediction: The Brawling Brutes win the match.
Edge vs. Finn Balor in an “I Quit” Match.
The storyline between Edge and The Judgement Day was not over at Clash at the Castle PLE. The faction brutally attacked Edge on the September 12th episode of Monday Night RAW. But, that was unable to stop The Rated-R Superstar. Last week, Edge made his return and challenged Finn Balor to an “I Quit” match. It’s a very rare thing that babyface says I Quit in the bout. Our Prediction: Edge wins the match.
Seth Rollins vs. Matt Riddle inside Fight Pit.
Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle are feuding for a long time and their storyline was supposed to end at Clash at the Castle. However, things got personal in the past few weeks after both Rollins and Riddle dragged out family matters.
This past Monday on RAW, Daniel Cormier was announced as the special guest referee for the Fight Pit Match between Rollins and Riddle at Extreme Rules. The match would definitely steal the show. Our Prediction: The Original Bro wins the match.
Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley for the RAW Women’s Championship in a Ladder Match.
Bayley made her shocking return to WWE at SummerSlam along with Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky. On the September 12th episode of Monday Night RAW, Kai and Sky were able to win the Women’s Tag Team Titles. Now, it’s Bayley’s turn to capture the RAW Women’s Title.
Bianca Belair has been protected ever since she won the RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38. However, Bayley has a huge chance of winning the bout with assistance from Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky. The Ladder Match stipulation will certainly help Belair to drop the title without hurting her momentum. Our Prediction: Bayley becomes the new RAW Women’s Champion.
