It looks like Extreme Rules is all set and ready to go this Sunday. Shane and Stephanie McMahon made some last minute decisions for the pay-per-view and I must say, they complete the event.

Dean Ambrose vs Chris Jericho in WWE’s first ever Asylum match
Shane McMahon gave Ambrose the freedom to choose any match he wants against Chris Jericho at Extreme Rules. Ambrose decided to have the first ever Asylum match where they would be enclosed in a steel cage and some of Ambrose’s favorite things like nun chucks, a straight jacket and even a potted plant to name a few were included. There’s no climbing out of the cage or walking out of the door so this doesn’t make it an easy escape for Jericho.
Dolph Ziggler vs Baron Corbin in a No Disqualification match
This rivalry has been going on for a little over a month now. Dolph obtained his victory against Baron during their match at Payback and Baron evened the number by winning their rematch at Monday Night Raw the following day. Who will exceed who in their number of victories and possibly come out of this rival as the top dog?
Stipulation added to the WWE’s Womens Championship match
Shane McMahon is always coming up with great ideas and this one is no different. Shane added another stipulation to Charlotte’s Womens Championship match against Natalya at Extreme Rules. First, it was announced it was a submissions match, then Ric Flair was banned ringside, and now if Ric Flair even shows his face during the match, Charlotte must forfeit her title. As Natalya said, Charlotte won the NXT Womens Championship against her at NXT and wants to wrestle that Charlotte this coming Sunday.
So what do you guys think of these additional matches and stipulation? I think the Asylum match will be entertaining and am hoping it revives the hardcore spirit of ECW. I want violence and blood! It’s a new era in WWE, so I’m hoping I’ll see even a little bit of it. Ziggler and Corbin I could care less about and the added stipulation in the womens match just ties it all up in a pretty little bow. Needless to say, I’m ready for Sunday!
