The WWE will return to pay-per-view this weekend with Extreme Rules coming live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The show will take place on Saturday, October 8 and begin at 8 p.m. ET.
Extreme Rules has become an annual staple on the WWE ppv calendar as every match usually has some kind of stipulation tied to it. The venue of this year’s show is fitting as it will take place in Philadelphia, the old birthplace and home of ECW
Several matches have already been announced for the card, including Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair defending her title against Bayley in a ladder match. This match has been brewing since Bayley’s return at SummerSlam in July, where she unveiled her new stable Damage Control. Belair, along with superstars on both Raw on Smackdown, have been fighting back against Bayley’s group for the past few months and both women will now have to climb a ladder to claim the championship.
We’ll also get Smackdown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan defending her belt against Ronda Rousey in an Extreme Rules match and Seth Rollins facing Matt Riddle in a fight pit with UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier serving as the special guest referee. Also, the war between Edge and The Judgement Day will come to a head when the WWE Hall of Famer battles Finn Balor in an I Quit match.
You will only be able to watch Extreme Rules via Peacock. The streaming service is $5 per month for its regular service and $10 a month for its premium plus service with no ads. You can access Peacock on Apple and Google devices, as well as the various Xbox One platforms, through Xfinity X1 and Flex and VIZIO and LG smart TVs.
