WWE Extreme Rules 2015 Card Prediction

This article is part of #ATPW24, in aid of MIND Charity. You can help support the cause by going

It's just four weeks away, so this card should be a little easier to predict than next year's WrestleMania, right? 

Extreme Rules Triple Threat Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Seth Rollins (C) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton

This one kind of writes itself really, doesn't it? Orton has legimate claim to the championship having defeated Rollins at WrestleMania, whilst Reigns' title match with Lesnar was interrupted by Rollins. The Authority attempt to have Reigns and Orton go at it see who faces Rollins at Extreme Rules, but the bout earns with some kind of dusty finish so they bout end up getting a title shot. Pretty simple.

Submission Match for the United States Championship

John Cena vs. Rusev

I can see Cena and Rusev having another match here, just to close off the feud once and for all. Neither man has forced the other to submit as of yet and the submission finishers have been a big part of their feuds, so it makes sense to end things in this fashion.

Steel Cage Intercontinental Championship Match

Daniel Bryan (C) vs. Bad News Barrett

A good old fashioned Steel  Cage match for Barrett and Bryan to contest the Intercontinental Championship in. Barrett deserves a rematch after dropping the title, so Extreme Rules it is, to see if Barrett can regain the strap for the sixth time.

Strap Match

The Miz vs. Damien Sandow

I'm not a fan of strap matches in WWE, they usually have some goofy gimmickery corner thing. But having Miz and Sandow strapped together would fit well with the stunt double gimmick that they were running for months. 

Fatal Fourway Elimination Match for the Diva's Championship

Brie Bella vs. Nikki Bella vs. Paige vs. AJ Lee

Following the WrestleMania match, it seems only fitting to have all those involved feature in a match at Extreme Rules. Finally put the Bella thing to bed, as well as the Paige and AJ feud all in one go, before some fresher faces thrown into the mix later in the year.

Loser Leaves WWE

Stardust vs. Goldust

The feud is picked up again following WrestleMania, with the bout being able to have more time on a show like Extreme Rules. The Loser Leaves gimmick is added when Goldust suggest he doesn't want to get rid of Cody Rhodes, he wants to get rid of Stardust...for good.

Tag Team Match for the WWE Tag Team ChampionshipsTyson Kidd & Cesaro vs. The Lucha Dragons

A bit of a wild card option in here for the Tag Titles. The Lucha Dragons have featured on Superstars a lot lately and I have a feeling WWE want to get Kalisto on TV as quickly  as possible to counter the losses of Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio over the last twelve months. The Luchas step up to an open challenge on Raw and impress earning them a title shot here.

A few interesting choices in there and again I found that a lot harder than it should have been and ended up leaving off a number of big names from the show. This booking shit is hard.
