Main Event For Extreme Rules 2018 Revealed – No Support For Top Champion To Main Event

AJ Styles vs. Rusev Extreme Rules 2018

According to WrestleVotes, the first ever match between “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley will main event this Sunday’s Extreme Rules 2018 PPV.

WrestleVotes noted that there was a push for the Intercontinental Championship match to go last at one point. However, there was no support for WWE Champion AJ Styles to main event the show.

This isn’t a shocker as anyone who watched the opening segment of this week’s RAW would know that Reigns vs. Lashley is being booked as the biggest match on the show and rightfully so.

Speaking of the Reigns-Lashley segment on RAW, the segment was written by Paul Heyman (who worked on this week’s RAW as a writer) as this match is related to a Brock Lesnar angle.

The winner of this match is expected to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam 2018.
