A Fight Pit match has been added to Extreme Rules on October 8.
Seth Rollins will face Matt Riddle in the third-ever Fight Pit match. After both got involved in each other’s matches on Monday’s Raw, the two were seen brawling backstage. As the two were seperated, Riddle issued the challenge for Extreme Rules, with Rollins immediately accepting.
The Fight Pit match is set inside a steel cage with no ring ropes. It has previously been seen in NXT, when Timothy Thatcher defeated Tomasso Ciampa in January of 2020. Thatcher later went on to defeat Riddle in the another Fight Pit match that was held on the May 20, 2020 edition of NXT.
On Raw, Riddle interfered in the finish of the Seth Rollins/Bobby Lashley match for the United States title, distracting Rollins long enough to be speared by Lashley. Later, Rollins came out during a Riddle & Rey Mysterio vs. Damian Priest & Finn Balor match, attacking Riddle.
Here is the current card for Extreme Rules:
