WWE Extreme Rules 2017 matches, card, date, start time, kickoff show, rumors
A Fatal 5-Way Match to determine the No. 1 contender to the universal title leads the show
WWE's second Raw-branded pay-per-view following WrestleMania 33 is set as Extreme Rules will go down on Sunday, June 4.
Extreme Rules will air live from Baltimore beginning at 8 p.m. ET. The kickoff show will start an hour earlier at 7 p.m. ET and all action can be watched live nationally on WWE Network.
The card will likely wind up featuring all but one Raw title being defended as WWE continues its post-WrestleMania storylines and sets up its new year. Here's where we stand.

WWE Extreme Rules matches
Matches in italics are projected at this time.
No. 1 Contender's Fatal 5-Way Match (Extreme Rules) -- Roman Reigns vs. Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Samoa Joe: With Braun Strowman (elbow) out for up to six months and universal champion Brock Lesnar in need of a challenger at Great Balls of Fire, this match has been set.
Women's Championship (Kendo Stick on a Pole) -- Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Bayley: An injured shoulder gives Bayley a natural out for this match, which is especially important as WWE changes titles way too often, particularly in the women's division.
Intercontinental Championship (No Champion's Advantage) -- Dean Ambrose (c) vs. The Miz: Continuing a long-time rivalry that was once over the United States title, Ambrose-Miz should be interesting. Ambrose being stripped of his champion's advantage -- the ability to retain the title via disqualification -- gives Miz a chance to swipe the belt in an underhanded manner.
Tag Team Championship (Steel Cage) -- The Hardy Boyz (c) vs. Sheamus & Cesaro: The Hardyz each picked up one-on-one victories over their PPV opponents, the second of which (Matt Hardy over Sheamus) allowed the Hardyz to choose the stipulation for the match.
Cruiserweight Championship (Submission Match) -- Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries: With it seemingly being Aries' last chance at the championship while it's around Neville's waist, it may finally be time for a title change.
Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox (Kickoff Show): Each woman has a win head-to-head, making a rubber match at Extreme Rules an obvious booking. The only question is whether there will be a stipulation.
Goldust vs. R-Truth (Kickoff Show): A heel turn and vicious attack by Goldust just three weeks before the PPV make it seem like this is headed for the Extreme Rules kickoff show.
Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs. Titus O'Neil & Apollo Crews (Kickoff Show): The Titus Brand is still in development, and WWE is unlikely to keep Enzo & Cass off a pay-per-view.
Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and the rest of the Fatal 5-Way competitors played major roles...
