Things are about to get really extreme this weekend as WWE’s next Premium Live Event is none other than Extreme Rules. However, unlike previous WWE events that shared this name, each match booked for the October 8th show has a wild gimmick. Here is all the information you need to check out this PLE.
The WWE 2022 event takes place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As of this writing, there are six bouts on the card, and unlike previous Extreme Rules shows, every bout on this card will have a special gimmick.
Two of the matches on the card are for championships: the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championships. Bloodline has a lock on the men’s main event and tag titles, so don’t expect them to defend it this time. Check out the start times for your neck of the woods below.
- 5 p.m. PT
- 7 p.m. CT
- 8 PM ET
- 11 p.m. BST
- 9 a.m. AEDT (October 9)
Please note that there will be a Kickoff Show on the WWE Network, YouTube and Twitter one hour prior to the main card times listed above. More recently, WWE has returned to airing a match on the preshow again, so be sure to tune in.
How to watch:
If you’re excited for Extreme Rules in the US but don’t know how to watch, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. You can buy it through your satellite or cable provider or watch it on the Peacock streaming service. And although Peacock has a free tier, you won’t be able to watch the WWE event through it. You’ll need a Premium ($5 per month, with ads) or Premium Plus Peacock ($10 per month, without ads) account. No matter which level you choose, there will be some WWE related ads throughout the show.
There are many ways to watch Peacock. In addition to watching the service on mobile devices and PC, you can stream the service to Amazon Fire, Android TV, Apple TV, LG Smart TV, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Roku, Samsung Smart TV, Xbox One, Xbox Series X devices , Xbox Series S, Xfinity and more.
For those overseas watching the PPV, you can still watch it on the WWE Network, lucky ducks.
Below, you’ll find the match card for Extreme Rules, along with the stipulations for each match.
