WWE Extreme Rules 2016 results: Card, matches, predictions, how to watch
May 22, 2016 - WWE
The 2016 book of WWE Extreme Rules kicks into rigging Sunday night, and with all 5 titles being shielded on a uncover full of chapter matches, there could be some engaging outcomes that set a tinge for a residue of a year.
You can locate Extreme Rules during 8 p.m. ET on Sunday live on presumably WWE Network — accessible on scarcely each device — or by pay-per-view around your internal wire provider.
Below is a whole compare label for Extreme Rules along with some predictions for how a dusk will play out during a Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
CBS Sports will update this page live Sunday night as a formula come in.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin (No Disqualification Match): Ziggler warranted a warn pinfall feat over Corbin — WWE’s newest big-man beast a association is clearly looking to pull — during Payback progressing this month. Considering a compare is being hold again and a “no disqualification” detriment gives Ziggler an out that should repairs him less, a outcome should be apparent in this kickoff uncover match. Prediction: Baron Corbin wins
United States Championship — Kalisto (c) vs. Rusev: Do we unequivocally care? Seriously, has WWE finished anything to make a U.S. pretension or presumably of these wrestlers relevant? It’s hapless what has happened to a pretension — it has been contested on back-to-back kickoff shows and this compare could really good be moved, too, by a time a eventuality starts — as a writers seem to have no suspicion what to do with it. we suspect there’s some-more income in Rusev (with Lana) being on shade more, yet Kalisto’s pull has been nice. Prediction: Rusev wins a title
Tag Team Championship — The New Day (c) vs. The Vaudevillains: What looked to be moulding adult as a triple hazard tab compare was dealt a vital blow when Enzo Amore went down during Payback with a concussion. While it’s good to see some immature blood removing an evident pull in a pretension design — and New Day does not need a titles to be over — it would be a bit startling to see this group take a belts during this time. Prediction: The New Day retains
The Usos vs. Karl Anderson Luke Gallows (Texas Tornado Match): Good pierce by WWE going to a hurricane compare concept, that allows all 4 tab group competitors to be in a ring during a same time. Tried and unsuccessful to demeanour adult a final time WWE hold one of these, though it’s during slightest something a bit singular for a compare that’s already been seen a garland on television. It’s bizarre that WWE has not requisitioned Anderson and Gallows stronger to this point, though they should be means to repress — and presumably harm — The Usos here, that would potentially offer a storyline after in a show. Prediction: Karl Anderson Luke Gallows win
Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho (Asylum Match): A first-of-its kind compare in WWE, a haven is fundamentally a steel enclosure embellished black with no doorway and several weapons unresolved during a tip of a cage. It appears as if customarily pinfalls and submissions in a ring will outcome in feat as shun is not an option. This is a third incarnation of Ambrose-Jericho with a array separate 1-1 to this point. As we wrote before Payback, giving Jericho another win over Ambrose — quite now that it’s in an Ambrose-themed compare — would make small clarity as Jericho is a part-time performer and Ambrose is one of WWE’s up-and-coming stars. Prediction: Dean Ambrose wins
Intercontinental Championship — The Miz (c) vs. Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn: Fatal 4-Way matches are customarily a good device to take a belt off a clever champion though deleterious him with a head-to-head loss. Sunday’s compare usually feels like a approach to get a garland of guys in a ring together. All 3 challengers are some-more over and would be stronger champions than The Miz, though somehow we see a lay-in-wait, sneak-in-at-the-last-moment finish with Zayn doing a job. What should happen? The belt should go on Owens or Cesaro and be built adult once again. Instead … Prediction: The Miz retains
Women’s Championship — Charlotte (c) vs. Natalya (Submission Match): An additional chapter in this compare has Ric Flair, Charlotte’s father, criminialized from ringside. It was a required chapter and good pierce by WWE engagement … as prolonged as they devise on carrying Charlotte win and retain. Look, we can never get too most Flair, though in terms of Charlotte’s impression and a women’s multiplication as a whole, she would be most improved off as a clever champion that wins her matches legitimately. In fact, I’ve suspicion it bizarre that WWE has requisitioned her this approach a final few months. It’s good that Natalya has not been lost about with this unreasonable of immature women entering WWE, though I’d be astounded if she took a belt. Prediction: Charlotte retains
World Heavyweight Championship — Roman Reigns vs. AJ Styles (Extreme Rules Match): Basically a no-disqualification compare where anything goes, WWE could plod this whole thing adult like it did during Payback with mixed restarts and an finale that doesn’t allege a storyline. The other option? Extreme Rules finally gets a round rolling. Let’s be honest: It’s rarely doubtful that Styles leaves as champion. Instead, division could come tighten to assisting him win a pretension or maybe offer as a daze that costs Styles another shot during a belt. The ultimate idea here should be to make The Club stronger, environment adult a ideal unfolding where Finn Balor can exhibit himself as a leader, maybe as shortly as Money in a Bank subsequent month.
Ultimately, a customarily thing we can be certain of Sunday night is a illusory compare between Reigns and Styles, who have proven to work good together over a final few months. In fact, while it is select to disapprove a company-pushed champion in Reigns, he indeed deserves some props for stepping adult his in-ring diversion and apropos a legitimate main-eventer for WWE. Yes, he needs to remove some of a trite shtick — including a bulletproof vest (if he’s so dominant, because does he need protection?) — and would substantially be improved served as a legitimate heel, though WWE has a income male in Reigns if they can book him right. Fans don’t have to like him; they usually need to honour him. Prediction: Roman Reigns retains
