WWE Extreme Rules 2019
The 2019 WWE Extreme Rules Kickoff pre-show opens live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Jonathan Coachman welcoming us. Coach is joined by Charly Caruso, WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix and Sam Roberts. Coach talks about how important Extreme Rules is on the road to SummerSlam. There will be two matches on the Kickoff tonight – Tony Nese vs. WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor. Charly plugs the WWE Network before the panel runs down tonight’s card.
The panel discusses Roman Reigns and The Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre. We see an ambulance backstage for tonight’s action. Kevin Owens walks up and Kayla Braxton interviews him. Owens is sure Shane McMahon has a problem with him being here tonight, but he works for WWE, not Shane. Owens is confident about tonight’s match with Dolph Ziggler and says if WWE is going to have Extreme Rules in the city of Philadelphia, you can believe he will be there. Owens walks off and we go back to the panel. We end up backstage with Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin. She asks what he thinks about her look and he says it’s a good look, and that’s strictly professional, and she looks like the next RAW Women’s Champion. Corbin goes on about how he’s going to beat Seth Rollins with a chair tonight, maybe put him through a table. Evans talks more about tonight and says they will forever be known as The Homewreckers because they will take Seth and Becky Lynch’s titles, and end their relationship.
