McIntyre vs. Kross strap match added to WWE Extreme Rules


Karrion Kross and Drew McIntyre will meet in a strap match at Extreme Rules.

On Friday’s SmackDown, McIntyre said he was tired of Kross attacking him from behind, and went to the very top of WWE to get the match at Extreme Rules. After Kross managed to lay out McIntyre, he accepted the challenge for October 8.

After McIntyre issued the challenge, Scarlett appeared as Kross’ music played. Kross attempted to attack McIntyre from behind, but McIntyre saw it coming and fought back, attacking Kross with a strap he brought to the ring. Scarlett eventually intervened, shielding Kross and ended up throwing a fireball at McIntyre. The fireball gave Kross the distraction needed, regaining the advantage before eventually choking out McIntyre, accepting the Extreme Rules match.

Here is the lineup for Extreme Rules, which will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:

  • Raw Women's Championship: Bianca Belair vs. Bayley
  • SmackDown Women's Championship: Liv Morgan vs. Ronda Rousey in an Extreme Rules match
  • Strap match: Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross
