Prediction: Austin Aries to submit Neville and become Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann & Sasha Banks vs. Noam Dar & Alicia Fox (Mixed Tag Team Match) The second 205 Live match on the main show and it bodes well for the brand. Joe will win via distraction to get the championship match against Lesnar. Ordering the event on PPV costs $54.99, but fans can also watch Extreme Rules with a live stream on the WWE Network. The two later reunited after Dar won his match against Swann.
While there is likely huge money to be made in Lesnar-Reigns II, and tons of intrigue surrounding Lesnar-Balor, Joe was the best option to win this match and provide fans with a fresh and unexpected main event to what should otherwise be a placeholder pay-per-view. I really don't care who wins this match, I just want the storyline done.
It's finally Aries' time, isn't it? At WrestleMania 33 and Payback, Aries was close to tapping out Neville but the King of the Cruiserweights would find a way to cheat out of it. I've loved their stiff matches with Sheamus and Cesaro and I'm sure they'll work hard for our entertainment.
Do you think Lesnar's title is in jeopardy?
Sam K - I see this match as another placeholder for the Hardyz until they work out whether to push them as singles or not.
Please stop playing hot potato with this belt.
The Intercontinental title, Tag team title, and the Cruiserweight title are set to change hands on tonight's show.
Elsewhere, there was confirmation that Jinder Mahal's win was good for Indian-centric business, that Alexa Bliss is in for an extended period as the top female star and that Rusev probably won't be pushed with Mahal already taking up the foreign heel space on the roster. Bayley will have another opportunity, but let's give the belt some consistency.
Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Miz has done more than enough to earn a title and for the sake of the IC title he needs to hold on to that for a long time.
There's a reason why Balor was the first-ever WWE Universal champion and he deserves to actually have a real run at it.
It's smart of the WWE to look to "cash-in" on the wrestling ability of Samoa Joe, an under-rated cast-away who even though he's been the champion in other places, has never gotten a title shot in the WWE.
The competitors in the Fatal Five-Way match are interesting, even if the buildup to the match has been poor. Wyatt is creepy and deranged. Remember, this matchup came about after the untimely injury to Braun Strowman, meaning to say the Big Dog Roman Reigns winning this is highly unlikely.
Michael - Honestly, I have no idea how the WWE is planning on booking this, but we have seen everyone here wrestling each other for the past few weeks so this nearly feels anticlimatic. Reigns and Lesnar are the only wrestlers to beat Undertaker at WrestleMania and they seem bound for another match against each other.
