Extreme Rules 2022 is shaping up to be a grand night for the WWE Universe where each of the matches will be hosted under different capacities. After a long time, the gimmick night is living up to the original shtick as all the matches received stipulations. Besides this, there will be history-making instances in the premium live event, as well.
Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair will defend her title against Bayley in a Ladder Match at Extreme Rules 2022. This will be for the first time ever that the two bitter rivals will compete in a Ladder Match. That being said, history will be made, this weekend as any of the Women’s Championships from the main roster in WWE will be on the line in a one-on-one ladder match capacity.
Women’s Superstars from Raw/Smackdown previously participated in Money in the Bank ladder matches while at TLC 2018, Charlotte Flair, Asuka, and Becky Lynch competed for the Smackdown Women’s Championship in a Ladder Match in a Triple Threat capacity.
In the other women’s title match from Extreme Rules 2022, Ronda Rousey will challenge Liv Morgan for the Smackdown Women’s Championship in Extreme Rules Match.
This will be the second only time that a women’s title from the main roster will be defended under Extreme Rules capacity. Previously, Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax from Extreme Rules 2018 was the only Extreme Rules women’s division bout in WWE history.
At Extreme Rules 2022, Seth Rollins will face Matt Riddle in a Fight Pit Match where the two superstars will compete inside without any ring ropes surrounding the ring. This will also be a first-time gimmick match in the history of the WWE main roster.
UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock wanted to be the Special Guest Referee for this match but now it’s official that former UFC Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier will be the special guest referee.
