WWE has not stopped putting on shows despite the COVID-19 pandemic, and things will get very interesting on Sunday when it hosts The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. The pay-per-view event will start airing at 7 p.m. ET and can only be seen on the WWE Network. Because of the pandemic, The Horror Show at Extreme Rules will be held at the WWE Performance Center without fans. This setup has been the norm for every WWE show has been taped since March.
As for the card itself, WWE has announced seven matches, including Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Championship and Braun Stroman vs. Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship. And since "Extreme Rules" is in the name of the event, expect the matches to be a little more intense since hardcore rules are typically involved.
That has been the case since its inception in 2009. And while many things have changed since then, some things are still the same, including the pro wrestlers on the roster. Here's a look at where a few of the wrestlers from the 2010 Extreme Rules pay-per-view are now.
Cena was the WWE Champion at the time and won his match against Batista, which was a Last Man Standing match. He would compete in WWE on a full-time schedule for the next eight years before shifting his focus on movies. However, he did compete at WrestleMania 36 last year, losing to Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Funhouse match.prevnext
Batista, (better known as Dave Bautista) left WWE in 2014 to focus on movies as well. He returned to WWE in2018 for SmackDown's 1,000th episode and competed in WrestleMania 35 the following year, facing Triple H. Bautista has been featured in a number of big films including Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.prevnext
