Now it’s official. We are just over three weeks away from WWE Extreme Rules, which will serve as the official followup pay per view to August’s Summerslam. As a result, you can expect a lot of rematches at the show, possibly with a bit more intensity. That will be the case with a Summerslam title match, and now it has officially been added to the Extreme Rules card.

This week on SmackDown, Bianca Belair again challenged SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch to a title match. Lynch turned her down for the second week in a row, saying the match would take place when she decided. WWE officials Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce told Lynch that the match would be taking place at Extreme Rules, with the contract signing being held on the September 10 SmackDown.

The match will be a rematch from Summerslam, where Lynch made a surprise return and replaced Carmella, who was replacing Sasha Banks. Lynch went on to challenge and defeat Belair in less than thirty seconds. Belair went on to win a four way elimination match on last week’s edition of SmackDown to earn the title match. The match had been previously announced by the Nationwide Arena’s website but not by WWE.

They have a short but intense history. Check out how we got here:

Relive Becky Lynch’s return to recapture the SmackDown Women’s Title: SmackDown, Aug. 27, 2021

Belair wins the right to face Lynch in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match: SmackDown, Aug. 27, 2021

Becky Lynch refuses to face Bianca Belair once again: SmackDown, Sept. 3, 2021

Opinion: It’s nice to have this match officially announced as the card had nothing set prior to this. Lynch vs. Belair in a more traditional match should be quite good as Belair has showed that she can hang with the top stars in the women’s division. The match should be a good one, as long as Lynch is back to a level close to where she was before she went on maternity leave.
