WWE 'Extreme Rules' Results: Can Braun Strowman Overcome Bray Wyatt Tonight?

There's a Horror Show happening this Sunday as WWE is putting on its Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

Extreme Rules is usually the show where superstars will compete in matches with more hardcore stipulations and this year is no different. The SmackDown Tag Team Championships will be on the line as The New Day take on Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura in a tables match. Will Cesaro and Nakamura finally get over the hump and put an end to New Day's antics?

Universal Champion Braun Strowman is returning to the swamp to take on Bray Wyatt in a swamp fight. While the title won't be on the line, Strowman hopes to put Wyatt away before The Fiend pops up. Can Strowman bury his demons or will Wyatt's mind games get to the champ?

Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins have been embroiled in a personal feud over the last few weeks and it's going to come to an end when the two fight in an eye for an eye match. The match will only end when one of the wrestlers has their eye gouged out. Will it be as gruesome as it sounds? And who will leave Extreme Rules as the victor?

Drew McIntyre will defend the WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler tonight in an unannounced stipulation. Ziggler will choose his stipulation before their title match, but how hardcore will it be? Fans will have to wait and see.

SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley will defend her title against Nikki Cross. Bayley has held the blue brand's top women's title for a historic 200-plus days, but with the weight of holding up the division on her shoulders will tonight be too much for the "role model" especially with her friend Sasha Banks having her own match on the same night.

Speaking of Banks, RAW Women's Champion Asuka will defend her title against Sasha Banks this Sunday. Banks is looking to join her friend Bayley as a double champion, but she'll have to overcome the tenacity of the "empress of tomorrow." Will the WWE women's division change forever with Banks and Bayley holding all the titles or will Asuka continue her recent dominance?

Here's everything that happened at the 2020 Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
