The ninth annual WWE Extreme Rules will come to you, live on the WWE Network and select pay-per-view providers, a week from this Sunday on April 26 from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL. As announced on RAW, big changes have been made to the WWE World Heavyweight Title and United States Title matches at the event. In addition, SmackDown yielded two new matches with interesting stipulations. Here is the updated card:

  • WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Steel Cage Match: RKO Banned: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Randy Orton
  • United States Championship: Russian Chain Match: John Cena (c) vs. Rusev
  • Last Man Standing Match: Roman Reigns vs. Big Show
  • Intercontinental Championship: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Bad News Barrett
  • Kiss Me Arse Match: Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus
  • Divas Championship: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige

In the Steel Cage Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, a Superstar can win by pinfall, submission, or escaping the cage, either through the door or over the top with both feet touching the floor. In addition, Randy Orton will be banned from using his RKO finishing maneuver.

In the first ever television Russian Chain Match, John Cena and Rusev will have a steel chain fastened to each of their wrists, tethering champion and challenger together. To win the match, either Cena or Rusev must touch all four ring corners in succession and the match will have no pinfalls, no submissions, no count-outs, and no disqualifications.

In the Last Man Standing Match, a competitor must beat his opponent so severely that they cannot get to their feet by the referee’s count of ten. The match will have no pinfalls, no submissions, no count-outs, and no disqualifications.

In the first ever Kiss Me Arse Match, standard match rules will apply as the match can be won by pinfall, submission, count-out, or disqualification. However, the loser of the match will be forced to kiss the “arse” of the winner.

What do you think of these new matches and stipulations? Post your comments in the box below.
