CLEVELAND, Ohio – Sunday night’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view may have been somewhat of a setback, contingent upon your meaning of outrageous. However, thus of Extreme Rules, we will get the opportunity to see a hotly anticipated dream coordinate.
Samoa Joe bested Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in the Fatal 5-Way headliner. That implies Joe will go up against Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-see in July.
It will check the first run through Samoa Joe and Lesnar have ever confronted each other, giving wrestling fans a standoff for the ages.
In truth, WWE couldn’t turn out badly with the result of Extreme Rules. Any of the contenders winning would have made for a convincing confrontation with Lesnar. Yet, dream matches are difficult to find these days, and Joe-Lesnar is quite recently that.
For standard fans still new to Samoa Joe, he was for some time considered one of the best wrestlers never to achievement in WWE. He overwhelmed advancements like TNA and Ring of Honor, putting on exemplary matches with any semblance of Kurt Angle, CM Punk and AJ Styles.
Joe had a short stretch in WWE, contending in one match on a scene of “Jakked” (no longer in presence), in 2001 against up-and-comer Essa Rios. WWE has everything except deleted that forgettable standoff from the history books.
