8. Jim Ross Comments On Who He Thinks Will Win The Extreme Rules 2017 Main Event This Sunday
Raw’s top 5 Superstars, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor & Bray Wyatt, will compete in an Extreme Rules Fatal 5 Way match to determine the #1 contender to the WWE Universal Championship.
During a recent blog entry, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discussed about who he thinks will win this match, AJ Styles losing on this week’s SmackDown Live & more. Below are the highlights:
On who will win the Extreme Rules 2017 Main Event:
“Enjoyed the two main event bouts including Reigns vs Rollins and the 3-Way between Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and Bray Wyatt, which all seemed to deliver as expected Monday night. These five will seemingly be counted on to deliver a strong, show closing presentation on Sunday night on the WWE Network during Extreme Rules from Baltimore. As I said on this week’s Ross Report Podcast, I see Finn Balor winning the main event Sunday at Extreme Rules which earns him a title bout with Brock Lesnar. Good luck on that one, Lad.”
On AJ Styles losing in his hometown to Dolph Ziggler:
“AJ Styles losing in ATL, his home market, was a bit of a surprise but not totally shocking. Other than seemingly taking the air out of the live audience a bit I see no issues with this outcome and for those who complain about the overall genre generally being too predictable, this outcome should have been acceptable to some degree. I thought the two had an enjoyable bout.”
