Two down, several to go. The WWE pay per view calendar seems to change almost every month with one show being moved around or the shows being extended or some other kind of change. At some point though, it needs to be about the matches themselves as there’s no show without them. With summer starting soon, we might have an idea of where the July pay per view is going. Well, at least some of the matches that we’ll be seeing there, which is better than nothing.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, some matches have already been decided upon for Extreme Rules 2018, which takes place on July 15 in Pittsburgh. The two matches being advertised are a six man tag between Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley vs. Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn along with Daniel Bryan vs. Samoa Joe. Of course these matches could be changed before we get to the show itself.

Hopefully they bring up this awesome promo again.

Opinion: These matches would make sense given what we’re seeing on the television shows leading up to the event. There’s a lot going on at the moment and combining three of the feuds into one match isn’t the worst idea in the world. I mean, ignoring the idea of Reigns vs. Mahal continuing, there’s something to the idea of combining the feuds together. Bryan vs. Samoa Joe getting some actual time sounds great as well, if we actually get the chance.
