Cape Town - WWE's Extreme Rules, emanating from Wells Fargo Centre in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Sunday, will feature the biggest names in WWE when Superstars from Raw, SmackDown Live and 205 Live as they compete in sports-entertainment's most extreme night of the year.

For the first time in history, the Undertaker and Roman Reigns will step into the ring together for a “No Holds Barred” tag team match against Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon.

It was “The Deadman” who came to Reigns’ rescue when he was cornered by McIntyre and McMahon on Raw last month.

In another grudge battle - Seth Rollins will join forces with his partner, Becky Lynch, to take on Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans as they renew their Stomping Grounds rivalry.  This is a last chance winner-takes-all mixed tag team match for the Universal Championship and the Raw Women’s Championship.

The WWE Championship will also be on the line when Kofi Kingston takes on Samoa Joe, who last month handed the champion his first defeat since March.

Bayley, Alexa Bliss and Nicki Cross will also go head-to-head in a handicap match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.

While Ricochet and AJ Styles will battle it out for the United States Championship - sparks will fly when Drew Gulak and Tony Nese face each other for the Cruiserweight Championship.

The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) take on The Usos (Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso) for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship.

There will be more fireworks in a bruising six-way battle between champions Daniel Bryan and Rowan against The New Day (Big E and Xavier Woods) and Heavy Machinery (Otis and Tucker) for the Triple Threat match for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley will compete in a Last Man Standing encounter, while Aleister Black takes on Cesaro in a singles match.

Catch Extreme Rules on SuperSport 4 with the WWE Extreme Rules Pre-Show (00:30) and the live event at 01:00 on Sunday.
