"WWE Extreme Rules" is live from Chicago with a card filled with special stipulations and the future of Intercontinental Champion Daniel Bryan.

KickOff Show: WWE Tag Team Championship: Cesaro and Tyson Kidd (c) vs. The New Day:

The New Day is coming into "Extreme Rules" with better crowd reaction -- negative crowd reaction -- but it has been working for them. Cesaro and Tyson Kidd have been floating around since "WrestleMania 31" and lost to John Cena and Daniel Bryan during a previous "SmackDown." With The New Day rapidly gaining momentum, it could derail Kidd and Cesaro's first tag-team reign together.

Prediction: Tough call since The Lucha Dragons will likely enter the title-scene fray. Final call says Cesaro and Kidd retains, although it would not be a surprise if Xavier Woods pulls a stunt for victory.

Last Man Standing Match: Big Show vs. Roman Reigns:

In one corner it is the winner of the 2015 Royal Rumble and in the other is the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner. For perhaps the dozen time, Roman Reigns and Big Show compete in a Last Man Standing match, which would fit since Show chokeslammed Reigns through a London taxi and did not immediately recover. It is Reigns' first major match to prove himself once again since losing to Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins at "WrestleMania 31" for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Big Show is riding high since winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and could be proving himself up for a title contendership.


Reigns wins. Reigns suffered a major loss at "WrestleMania," and he has to receive that boost.

Intercontinental Championship: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Bad News Barrett:

Unfortunately, this title match is up in the air due to Bryan receiving medical testing since the recent European tour. Bryan won the title at "WrestleMania," but he could be stripped of the title if he doesn't appear. Perhaps another WWE Superstar will step-in for Bryan? Either way, Barrett wants his title back for a sixth title reign.


If Bryan is listed on the card, then Barrett wins. If someone enters the match as a replacement, then the replacement will win. Could it be Neville? Barrett and Neville would deliver a remarkable match.

WWE Divas Championship: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Naomi:

Divas Champion Nikki Bella defends her title against Naomi, but the former funkadactyl was not the original choice. Paige was the original challenger until Naomi attacked her after the Divas No. 1 Contender Battle Royal. Naomi filled in and has been on a role ever since. Since the departure of AJ Lee, it is time for Naomi's spotlight.


Naomi deserves her first reign as Divas Champion, but a feud between The Bella Twins and Naomi can further develop before the title change. Nikki will keep her title, but expect Naomi to stay strong with a post-match attack.

Chicago Street Fight: Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper:

These two WWE Superstars have been trying to one-up each other by brawling around the ring or dropping someone through the announce table. To be honest, Harper and Ambrose are not in an important feud and this could be a filler match, but then again, these can deliver in the ring and will have the support of the Chicago crowd.


Ambrose, please win a match. Ambrose has been on a losing streak on pay-per-view events, and he needs a victory.

United States Championship -- Russian Chain Match: John Cena (c) vs. Rusev: 

It is Cena vs. Rusev III. It could be the final match in their feud that has been building since the conclusion of Royal Rumble night. Cena and Rusev, each, have a victory under their belt but the edge could be in Rusev's favor since he issued the stipulation for Sunday's match.


Cena wins. He has new merchandise featuring the U.S. Championship and it would be abrupt to end the title reign after less than a month. Rusev is the preferred winner, but it will be Cena to end the feud with the U.S. conquering Russia.

Kiss Me Arse Match: Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus:

Sheamus has returned and has been beating people down mainly due to their smaller body sizes. Dolph Ziggler, however, has survived two Brogue Kicks to challenge Sheamus in a Kiss My Arse match, but with Sheamus just returning, this match is easy to call.


Sheamus wins, but hopefully Ziggler gets a good payday.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Steel Cage Match: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Randy Orton:

Randy Orton finally receives his championship match he never received after losing to Daniel Bryan at "WrestleMania 30." Seth Rollins, however, is now the champion and has done a remarkable job trying to downgrade Orton ahead of "Extreme Rules." While Orton made the Steel Cage stipulation, Rollins fought back by banning the RKO.


These two will deliver a brilliant match, but in the end, Rollins wins. Regardless of interference, and it will happen, expect an RKO on someone.
