First Match For WWE Extreme Rules Announced
WWE has announced the first match for the upcoming RAW exclusive Extreme Rules PPV. It looks like Matt and Jeff Hardy will be defending their RAW Tag Team Titles against #1 Contenders Sheamus and Cesaro at the event on June 4th at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
Also announced in this video is Jeff’s match with Sheamus on tonight’s RAW…and that will be a No Disqualification match. No stipulations have been announced for the title match at Extreme Rules, but with The Hardys involved, I fully expect this to turn into some sort of Ladder Match.
Jim Ross Calling A Match At NXT TakeOver: Chicago
Jim Ross’ duties with WWE since returning at WrestleMania just seem to grow every week. As we reported last week, Ross and Nigel McGuinness were announced as the commentators for the upcoming UK Live Specials that will air on WWE Network later this week, and today, Ross announced on Twitter that he and McGuinness will be calling the action for the UK Championship match between Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne at Saturday’s NXT TakeOver: Chicago.

I am going to make an educated guess here and say that when and if the company every gets the rumored weekly UK series off the ground, Ross and McGuinness will be the voices of the show.
