Two more title matches added to WWE Extreme Rules card


The card for Extreme Rules continued to take shape on tonight's SmackDown.

Two more title matches were announced for the July 15 pay-per-view. Daniel Bryan will team with the returning Kane to challenge for The Bludgeon Brothers' SmackDown Tag Team titles, while Carmella will again defend her Women's Championship against Asuka.

Kane returned to television tonight for the first time since becoming the Republican candidate for mayor of Knox County, Tennessee. He made the save and helped even the odds against The Bludgeon Brothers after Bryan defeated Harper by disqualification in this week's main event. Bryan and Kane hugged, reuniting their Team Hell No duo. Paige then announced the title match for Extreme Rules.

Paige also made Carmella vs. Asuka for the PPV. In the lead-up to the event, Asuka will face James Ellsworth on next week's episode of SmackDown.

  • WWE Champion AJ Styles defending against Rusev
