Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler added to WWE Extreme Rules


A 12th match has been added to tonight's Extreme Rules pay-per-view in Philadelphia.

WWE has confirmed that Kevin Owens will face Dolph Ziggler at tonight's PPV. Post Wrestling's John Pollock first reported that the match would be added to the show.

Owens and Ziggler have been in a program since the storyline where they were forced to team together on the July 2 episode of SmackDown.

Kofi Kingston, who was advertised for the main event of last night's house show in Petersburg, Virginia, but didn't wrestle due to a back injury, is expected to wrestle his match with Samoa Joe tonight.

Kingston was injured one week ago and did do a Trouble in Paradise on Ziggler as a run-in during the Elias & Sami Zayn vs. Xavier Woods & Big E match at last night's house show. Ziggler interfered and Kingston made the save and hit his finisher. Kingston vs. Ziggler was locally advertised as the main event of that show.

Here's the updated card for Extreme Rules:

  • The Undertaker & Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre in a no holds barred match
