Whether it be Bálor’s light-hearted critique of Corbin’s new vest or The Lone Wolf scoring a tag team victory over his explosive adversary, a one-on-one contest between them has been brewing for weeks.
When they were forced to team together against Braun Strowman & Kevin Owens on the June 25 edition of Monday Night Raw, the unlikely partners soon came to blows in a wild brawl that resulted in a count-out loss and stretched all the way up the ramp and to the backstage area.
The following week, Stephanie McMahon’s appointed representative demanded an apology from Bálor for what he deemed “unprofessional” and “unacceptable” behavior during a face-to-face that caused the bad blood to escalate and resulted in the official announcement of a match between them at WWE Extreme Rules.
