Extreme Rules 2019: Start time, how to watch, full card and WWE Network WWE really needs a win right now. It’s facing increasingly stiff competition from upstart AEW, larger-than-usual dips in TV viewership and is coming off June’s uninspiring Stomping Grounds pay-per-view.
But WWE has a chance to turn things around this Sunday with the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, which will be broadcast live on the WWE Network.
Extreme Rules is a show that will be heavy on weaponry. As most key matches take place under extreme rules (read: no rules), expect to see chairs, ladders, tables and maybe a trash can lid or two.
The headlining match is a mixed-tag winner-take-all bout. On one side is Universal Champion Seth Rollins and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, and on the other is Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans. If Baron and Lacy win the match, they win both titles. Looming over the match is the prospect of a Brock Lesnar appearance, as Lesnar has yet to cash in his Money in the Bank contract, which gives him a title match at any moment (like after Seth just finished a gruelling mixed-tag match, for instance).
Elsewhere, Kofi Kingston defends his WWE Championship against Samoa Joe in a match that will certainly be good and may even be great. Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley literally brought down the building the last time they faced off, so their Last Man Standing match will likely be quite the spectacle. Most promising match of the night, though, goes to AJ Styles vs. Ricochet.

On the flip side, though, Raw did have a few agonizing missteps, such as the abuse of the 2-out-of-3 falls and elimination tag match stipulations. Hopefully, leading into SummerSlam, we can find a much more constructive and entertaining way to dance around the reported timing demands of Vince McMahon. Let’s have a look now at everything that went down Monday night on the Extreme Rules go-home edition of Raw. Throughout the evening leading up to the main event, Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre were trolling in their search to select Roman Reigns’ partner for the main event tag match. They approached an arena garbage man and a beer vendor before they came across a janitor named Gary who was carrying a severe limp. In the locker room, McMahon and McIntyre offered Gary the janitor $5,000 to merely stand on the apron for the contest while serving as Reigns’ partner. Gary accepted, with the added condition that he wear a mask to ease his pressure seeing as McMahon and McIntyre are so recognizable. In the middle of all this, Reigns was interviewed backstage where he pretty much no-sold his opponent’s shenanigans knowing full well what they’re all about.
