WWE Extreme Rules – A Must See Event
Sunday, July 14th will be the setting for the WWE Extreme Rules 2019, the eleventh under this particular chronology. This event, shown in pay-per-view as well as on the WWE Network, will be held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The WWE uses such events to culminate scripted storylines produced on its weekly television shows, such as Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, and 205 Live.
Two matches especially attract attention: The Undertaker teams up with Roman Reigns against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre, in a “No Holds Barred” tag team match; as well as the Singles match for the WWE Championship, the world heavyweight championship created by the WWE for the Smackdown brand, opposing Kofi Kingston to Samoa Joe. Other matchups include: a “Last Chance Winners Take All” mixed tag team match for the WWE Universal Championship and the WWE Raw Women’s Championship, opposing Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch to Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans; a “Handicap” match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship opposing Bayley to Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross; a “Singles” match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship opposing Drew Gulak to Tony Nese; a “Triple Threat” tag team match to determine the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship, opposing Daniel Bryan and Rowan to The New Day (Big E and Xavier Woods) and to Heavy Machinery (Otis and Tucker); a “Singles” match opposing Aleister Black to Cesaro; a “Singles” match for the WWE United States Championship opposing Ricochet to AJ Styles; a “Last Man Standing” match opposing Braun Strowman to Bobby Lashley, and a “Tag Team” match for the WWE Raw Tag Team championship opposing The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) to The Usos (Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso).
It is to be noted that a “No Holds Barred” match consists of combat during which no wrestler can be disqualified. This permits the use of weapons, as well as outside interference from other wrestlers. This emphasis on weapons often turns these matches into bloody no-holds-barred fights. Also, falls must occur within the ring, and the Count-Out rule is not observed.
Shane McMahon (The Best in the World) and Drew McIntyre (The Scottish Psychopath) will face The Undertaker, who joins forces with Roman Reigns (The Big Dog), in spite of some bad blood between these two (Reigns beat The Deadman at Wrestlemania 33 on April 2nd, 2017). But then, on the June 24th, 2019 episode of Raw, during a handicap match in which Reigns was being severely beaten by both Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre, The Undertaker appeared out of nowhere and attacked McMahon and McIntyre. A matchup between the two duos was promptly announced for the next Extreme Rules held in Philadelphia.
All through his reign as WWE Champion, Kofi Kingston has been accepting title fights from numbers of dangerous competitors, notably Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens, and Dolph Ziggler. He won the Championship on April 7th, 2019, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at WrestleMania 35. Kingston thus became the first African-born Champion in WWE history. He will now face Samoa Joe, who previously had attacked him after he’d combatted and defeated Owens and Sami Zayn in consecutive matches.
Bixler’s has already launched a collection of jewels under The Undertaker’s brand. It will soon add to this set of magnificent pieces collections for both Kofi Kingston and Roman Reigns. So will WWE belts be handcrafted in Bixler’s North American facilities, with certified and responsibly sourced metals as well as diamonds?
