Extreme Rules is the one night of the year where the rule book gets thrown out the window, its the night where superstars and divas set their differences aside by getting “extreme”. It is the night where bodies will be blooded, battered and bruised. This is the first pay per view after the historic Wrestlemania 30 which broke record after record for WWE Universe Mode. Extreme Rules will be the first pay per view in WWE Universe Mode history to feature twice in the series.
But the question remains… ‘Are you ready to get Extreme?’
FATAL FOUR WAY MATCH – WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP LADDER MATCH
CM PUNK VS JOHN CENA VS UNDERTAKER VS BATISTA ( c )
Smackdown has been given a heavy shake up with new talent arriving on the show from the draft, as well as legends returning to take their spot back on top. The new World Heavyweight Champion Batista ended the reign of the former King of Smackdown Ryback at Wrestlemania 30 but perhaps his toughest challenge comes at the hands of his first PPV title defence, as the odds are stacked against him.
Four of the greatest superstars of all time will battle it out in an every man for himself fatal four Ladder Match. These four men all respect each other, but they all have one goal in mind and that’s to be the World Heavyweight Champion and will do whatever it takes to achieve that.
Two fan favourites in John Cena & CM Punk have struggled to buy a match in the past 6 months of Universe Mode as their careers took a turn for the worst on RAW. But with a new fresh beginning on the blue brand, will we see two heroes emerge as two legitimate contenders for the world championship once more?
The Undertaker kept his Wrestlemania winning streak alive by dispatching Chris Jericho inside Hell in a Cell at Wrestlemania. Many members of the WWE Universe were unsure if we would ever see the Undertaker wrestle again, but the Undertaker has come back and has come back to be the King of the Mountain once again at Extreme Rules.
This is the toughest fight of Batista’s career, will we see Batista retain or will his new championship reign die a fast death at the hands of three of Smackdowns best?
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP – 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS NO DISQUALIFICATION
BROCK LESNAR VS RANDY ORTON ( c )
Ever since Randy Orton won the 2014 Royal Rumble, he has been on a path of destruction. First he took out his arch nemesis The Rock, then he targeted his own allies in Triple H and then WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
Orton successfully conquered Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania, submitting Lesnar in the Main Event of the grandest stage of them all. But, that one victory is simply not enough for Orton, Randy is looking to take out the Authority for good.
This match is do or die for both the Authority and Brock Lesnar. Lesnar was drafted to Smackdown in the 2014 Draft, but was thrown a life line by his boss Triple H to give him the chance to cash in his rematch clause at Extreme Rules. If Lesnar loses, he will have to complete his obligations from the draft and head to Smackdown, however if he wins Randy Orton will be replacing him and will be heading back to the brand he once managed.
Triple H has given the direct message to Lesnar that this is his last chance to overturn his failure at Wrestlemania, if Lesnar loses will the Triple H & Brock Lesnar alliance end?
Randy Orton has been labeled “a lucky man” as many analyists arguing his victory at Wrestlemania was a “fluke”. Orton has the chance to silence his criticts by pinning Lesnar not once, but twice in the same match to retain his championship.
Who will be walking out as the WWE Champion? Brock Lesnar or Randy Orton?
