  • Finn Bálor faces two diabolical Superstars

Just six nights before Extreme Rules, each participant in Sunday’s Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way Match will see action on Raw. Per Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, Finn Bálor, Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe will clash in a Triple Threat Match, while former Shield allies Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins will collide one-on-one!

Finn Bálor has no shortage of confidence heading into the Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way Match next Sunday; he even received a ringing endorsement from Paul Heyman last Monday night. However, this week on Raw, the charismatic Irishman goes up against Samoa Joe and Bray Wyatt, two Superstars who, while hardly allies, were successful against Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins in this past Monday’s main event.

As will be the case at Extreme Rules, it will be every man for himself in this Triple Threat contest, and it will be a true test for the Irishman as he looks to officially begin his journey to Suplex City, where Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be waiting. Can Bálor back up his boasts and defeat both The Samoan Submission Machine and The Eater of Worlds, or will one of his sinister opponents have their arm raised in victory when the chaos concludes

Roman Reigns faces his former Shield “brother”

Even though they might find themselves facing common enemies from time to time, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins are hardly friends. That should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with their checkered past — namely The Kingslayer’s dismantling of The Shield back in 2014 — or to anyone who witnessed last Monday night’s main event, where a miscommunication between the one-time Hounds of Justice resulted in a loss to the formidable team of Bray Wyatt & Samoa Joe.

Reigns and Rollins will face each other in the Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way Match next Sunday, but first, they’ll battle one-on-one on Raw. Will the former friends finally settle their differences, or might their longstanding rivalry reignite just six nights before Extreme Rules?

  • Who attacked Enzo Amore?

The outspoken Enzo Amore has made countless enemies since his arrival on Raw last year, so Raw General Manager Kurt Angle’s official investigation into his mysterious backstage attack this past Monday night might take a while.

As The Olympic Hero searches for answers to this heinous assault, so too does Big Cass, but we doubt The Realest Guy in the Room will follow due process as he hunts down his friend’s unknown attacker. The Certified Gs have most recently had issues with Apollo Crews and his new mentor, Titus O’Neil, but this type of behavior doesn’t seem on-message for “The Titus Brand.” Could it be another tag team looking to make a name for themselves? Maybe Goldust and his new, ruthless attitude is to blame. As speculation continues to swirl around this shocking incident, don’t expect this unnamed assailant to be hidden for long.

After defeating Sheamus this past Monday night, Matt Hardy revealed that he and his brother Jeff would defend the Raw Tag Team Titles in a Steel Cage Match at Extreme Rules, choosing to battle Sheamus & Cesaro in one of the most barbaric battlegrounds WWE has to offer.

Late Monday night, The Celtic Warrior tweeted that he and his partner are “gonna rewrite the rules of extreme.”

Gonna rewrite the rules of extreme. Hardys locked in a  with 2 wild hungry animals? Good luck.

Will Sheamus & Cesaro give The Hardy Boyz a primer on those rewritten rules on Raw?

  • Can Bayley go to the Extreme against Alexa Bliss?

One week after Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss brutalized Bayley with a kendo stick, the self-proclaimed “Goddess of WWE” used the same devious implement to attack Mickie James, prompting The Huggable One to charge the ring and nearly give Alexa a taste of her own medicine.

Bayley intends to reclaim the Raw Women’s Title in a Kendo Stick on a Pole Match at Extreme Rules, but we haven’t seen the fan-favorite Superstar truly embrace her Extreme side against Alexa. Will Bayley finally “stick it” to Little Miss Bliss on Raw?
