Extreme Rules Match

When John Cena clashes with Brock Lesnar, the WWE Universe can expect the Extreme Rules Match to live up to its daunting appellation. (MATCH PREVIEW)

Unlike standard WWE-sanctioned bouts, Extreme Rules Matches are no-disqualification and no-countout, making victory achievable only by pinfall or submission. To state it simply: anything goes.

As Undertaker and Jeff Hardy exhibited in a classic match from 2008, these contests are not for the faint of heart. Injuries are not only possible, but likely, as Superstars lay it all on the line in one of WWE’s most ruthless pay-per-view events.

As if the situation wasn't dangerous enough, the use of weapons is allowed. Punishing armaments – metal garbage cans, ladders, kendo sticks and fire extinguishers – have increased the brutality of past Extreme Rules Matches and figure to factor in Sunday.

No matter what happens in the contest between Brock Lesnar and John Cena, the only thing the WWE Universe can be sure of is that both men are going to go to hell and back. (JOHN CENA VS. BROCK LESNAR PLAYLIST)
