It’s not exactly a spoiler at this point. With rumors swirling that Brock Lesnar will defend against Roman Reigns or, less likely, Bobby Lashley at Summerslam, it’s not exactly shocking to hear that the main event for tonight’s Extreme Rules PPV will more than likely be Reigns vs Lashley.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported today that the current plan for tonight’s show is for Lashley and Reigns to close the event in Pittsburgh. The WWE Championship match between Rusev and WWE Champion AJ Styles will take place in the third hour, but will not close out the show.
Reigns taking yet another main event away from another deserving champion definitely won’t help his case with the WWE Universe, and that’s coming from a fan of the Big Dog. Hopefully, the WWE comes to their senses tonight and places the WWE Championship at the end of the PPV where it rightfully belongs.
