'Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook' six-man tag added to WWE Extreme Rules

Imperium and The Brawling Brutes will meet in a stipulation match.

Another stipulation match has been made official for WWE's Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

It was announced today that Imperium (Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser & Giovanni Vinci) and The Brawling Brutes (Sheamus, Ridge Holland & Butch) will meet in a "Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook" six-man tag match at Extreme Rules. The match will be "an absolute free-for-all brawl with numerous weapons at every turn that guarantee a display of all-out mayhem."

Extreme Rules is taking place on Saturday, October 8. The night before the pay-per-view, Gunther will defend his Intercontinental title against Sheamus on SmackDown's season premiere episode. That's a rematch from Clash at the Castle, where Gunther retained against Sheamus in a hard-hitting instant classic.

On SmackDown last week, Holland & Butch challenged The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team titles. Imperium got involved in the match and cost The Brawling Brutes a chance to become champions.

Sheamus also wrestled in a Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook match this July, losing to Drew McIntyre on an episode of SmackDown.
