WWE Extreme Rules 2017 Match Card and Predictions

Emmett Rice

Below is the match card for this Sunday's event, along with my predictions. O'Neil decided he needed to show Crews how it's done, and he defeated Kalisto six nights ago on Raw by cheating.

Results: After an even battle, Apollo started arguing with Titus on the apron. Kalisto takes advantage of Crews having his back turned and hits the Salida Del Sol (while using O'Neil as a stepladder) to pick up the victory.

As you can see in the match's headline, Dean Ambrose is at a disadvantage. Then maybe they will send Ambrose and Miz to NXT or England to continue this same feud again and again and again. If the Miz captures the gold, this will be his 7th Intercontinental Championship. Miz goes for the cover, and Cone counts to three to crown a new champion. The interference from Dar was a distraction and Fox then attacked Banks.

As for Alexa Bliss, she and Sasha Banks should be fire if that's the direction they decide to go.

Fox seems to injure her right leg when she misses a big boot in the corner, essentially turning this into a handicap match.

Who should win: Swann and Banks. She also said she was inspired by "Wonder Woman".

Yankees hit 4 homers in 8th, Montgomery beats Blue Jays 7-0
This was the fourth time the Yankees have hit four homers in an inning - they last did it on October 1, 2012, against Boston. Josh Donaldson on his bobblehead day drilled a shot over the right-center field wall, and suddenly the Yankees were down 3-2.

Florida leaders announce special session to hash out budget compromise
In announcing the deal, Scott and Corcoran finally ended their intense war of words over incentives. Striking a deal allowed them to avoid a messy, protracted fight and have something to campaign on.

Trump Announces US Will Withdraw from Paris Climate Accord
Musk on Wednesday said he had used his position on the councils to advise Trump to remain committed to the Paris Agreement . Faulconer has been notable as a high-profile Republican elected official who has taken steps to address climate change .

The WWE will try their darnest but in this the supposed PG Era, goofy stuff like a Kendo Stick-on-a-Pole match is about as hardcore as Vinnie Mac and his troops get. Kurt Angle seemed to like these actions, so he put the weapon on a pole.

Along with the big main event for RAW on Sunday: Dean Ambrose defending the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz, Neville defending the Cruiserweight Championship against Austin Aries, Alexa Bliss defending RAW Women's Championship against Bayley and The Hardy Boyz defending their RAW tag team title against Sheamus and Cesaro in a Steel Cage match.

Instead, it was a total squash on the part of Bliss, who capitalized on Bayley's hesitancy and blasted her with the kendo stick en route to retaining her title. I think both women have insane ring ability and whoever wins this match will make a good champ. However, since this is a tag team steel cage match, pinfall and submission don't matter. This could either be by over the top or through the door.

Neville (champion) vs. Austin: This Match Basically Aries for Surrender match for attaining the Title for WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Neville to tapped out on the arena floor, but of course the finished needed to take place inside the ring. Most recently, Rollins and Joe have been rivals and Bray Wyatt singled out Finn Balor as his next victim.

With the stipulation being that both team members must escape the cage in order to win, Jeff deleted his early exit by rejoining the match late. Through various singles and tag matches, the five men have been mixing it up and muddying the waters between would-be allies.

Coming back to tonight, there might be a shocking return from either Stephanie McMahon or Triple H to ensure that their poster boy, Samoa Joe picks up the win. So expect Lesnar vs Balor at GBOF and Lesnar vs Reigns down the line, maybe SummerSlam, or maybe WrestleMania (wouldn't that be a nice change of pace). Samoa Joe recovers from being speared through the barricade to drag Balor off of Reigns to lock in the Coquina Clutch. Samoa Joe will now face Brock Lesnar at the next pay-per-view for the Universal Championship.
