WWE begins the last push to SummerSlam with Sunday’s Extreme Rules pay per view in Pittsburgh. 

All told, there are 11 matches on the card, including seven title matches. Even the non-title matches have plenty of hype behind them. Daniel Bryan and Kane’s Team Hell reunion has been tons of fun and Sunday’s show could mark the Big Red Machine’s last PPV appearance for the foreseeable future. Kane (aka Glenn Jacobs) is running for mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, with the election scheduled for August 2. Bobby Lashley’s match against Roman Reigns has the potential to be a good one, too, as Lashley appears on the precipice of a heel turn. 

As for the title bouts, every current Raw and SmackDown title holder will be defending their belts, except, of course, Brock Lesnar. Perhaps Extreme Rules will begin to clarify who we can expect to battle Lesnar at SummerSlam. 

As always, check back with SI Wrestling after the show for Justin Barrasso’s review.
