WWE Extreme Rules 2016 is set to take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on May 22. Here are the latest rumors surrounding the event, potential matches planned and the updated match card.
According to WWE.com, there are just three official matches on the card at the moment with only two weeks remaining.
Roman Reigns vs. A.J. Styles in an Extreme Rules Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
The rematch between Reigns and Styles was immediately announced by Shane and Stephanie McMahon at the end of Payback. It is expected that the team of Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, as well as The Usos, will be involved in this match due to the Extreme Rules stipulation
In a report by Cageside Seats, the feud between Reigns and Styles for the WWE championship will last until the Money in the Bank pay-per-view in June. There will likely be a big scenario happening at the main event of Extreme Rules to prolong Reigns vs. Styles rivalry.
The New Day vs. The Vaudevillains for the WWE Tag Team Championships
Following the injury sustained by Enzo Amore at Payback, The Vaudevillains were declared the No. 1 Contenders on Monday Night Raw. They will challenge The New Day for the tag team titles but no word yet if there would be an added stipulation.
