Bengaluru, July 10: Extreme Rules match card was updated for one last time during the go-home episode of Smackdown Live for the pay-per-view event. We now have two fresh matchups for the Sunday night show one of which will take place for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships while the other will mark a solo debut of a former NXT Champion in a PPV event.
Aleister Black has finally received his first opponent in the form of Cesaro after months of pleading the Smackdown roster members for a match. He was sat in a dark room for more than a month demanding for competition. Two weeks ago, someone knocked on his door and his identity was revealed only last night on Smackdown. It was none other than the Swiss Superman Cesaro who was the one to set up a fight with the Dutch Destroyer.
Earlier, Aleister Black was ready for competition against anyone in the locker room. Hence, he did not hesitate to sign a contract on last night’s Smackdown for a match at Extreme Rules even without knowing who his opponent was going to be. Finally, it was revealed to be the former United States and Tag Team Champion Cesaro who wanted to compete in a match against the Master of the Black Mass. With two powerful forces set to collide against each other, this PPV match is likely to be a show-stealer, for sure.
As for the other matchup, the WWE Raw tag team championships will also be on the line. Champions The Revival (Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson) will defend their titles against The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso). The match came up after what transpired on WWE Raw during a tag team match. The Uso twins were able to pick up a clean pinfall after the superfly splash on Dawson earlier this week. So WWE management did not hesitate to hand another title match opportunity to the veteran tag team.

Extreme Rules may also witness one more segment as indicated on Smackdown featuring Elias. The Drifter pledged to sing a special song for The Undertaker which he has been rehearsing for the past few days. He may be allowed to reveal it to the audience at Extreme Rules which is often dubbed as the most extreme night of the year emanating from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
