Nine matches have now been officially announced for Extreme Rules.

Via a video announcement from Cathy Kelley, WWE confirmed today that Finn Balor will face Baron Corbin at the July 15 pay-per-view in Pittsburgh. They've been feuding over the last few weeks since Corbin began his "Constable of Raw" gimmick.

Corbin pinned Balor while teaming with Kevin Owens against Balor & Braun Strowman on the June 18 episode of Raw. The next week, Balor & Corbin vs. Strowman & Owens ended in a countout as Balor and Corbin wouldn't stop fighting with each other after Corbin tagged himself in. Corbin then mocked Balor and demanded an apology from him on this Monday's show.

The segment ended with Balor calling Corbin "Stephanie McMahon's stooge" and Corbin cheap shotting him before backing off when Balor hit a slingblade and a dropkick.

Here's the updated card for Extreme Rules:

  • WWE Champion AJ Styles defending against Rusev
  • Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss defending against Nia Jax in an extreme rules match
  • Roman Reigns vs. Bobby Lashley
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella defending against Asuka

  • United States Champion Jeff Hardy defending against Shinsuke Nakamura
  • SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers (Harper & Rowan) defending against Team Hell No (Daniel Bryan & Kane)
  • Finn Balor vs. Baron Corbin
