WWE Extreme Rules 2017: Match Order Predictions

7 of 7


Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Bálor vs. Samoa Joe – No. 1 Contender Match for Universal Championship

There are no Extreme Rules gimmicks here—just a good ol’ Fatal 5-Way match featuring five of the biggest names on the RAW brand.

This is the main event of the night, no doubt given the presence of who is in the match and, as mentioned in the previous slide, the stipulations around this match.

Although Bálor is a fan favorite and he had that promo with Paul Heyman to put him over even more, this will all be part of a plan to swerve the viewers and hopefully lead to a compelling angle that dives into Bálor’s demon persona against Wyatt.

In what will most likely serve as a one-off match with Lesnar to hold over a match with Braun Strowman at SummerSlam, the WWE has a fantastic opportunity here to thrust Joe into the spotlight considering how little they’ve done with him since his debut on RAW and, shortly after, tearing up Rollins’ knee.

With Joe winning, this could set up a Bálor and Wyatt feud, which could then parlay into something with The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship.

A win for Joe could also call for a storyline featuring Rollins and Reigns in which they could reunite as The Shield.

The dude from Huntington Beach, California will finally get his comeuppance, albeit in a one-off match with The Beast Incarnate at Great Balls of Fire in July.

Joe goes over here in a fashion that should garner him even more heat.
