It should be noted that this match isn’t confirmed yet and it’s possible that this match doesn’t end up being the actual match at Extreme Rules 2018 (as WWE aired ads for a FastLane 2018 WWE Title match earlier this year and that match didn’t end up happening).
We’ll keep you updated regarding the upcoming plans for the WWE Championship.
