The WWE is back again with another pay-per-view event featuring fans in the building! With the latest wrestling show, it’s time to get extreme, as WWE Extreme Rules 2021 invades Columbus, Ohio’s Nationwide Arena. Among the top matches on the card will be Alexa Bliss challenging Charlotte Flair for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship and The Demon Finn Balor taking on Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. Here’s a look at the latest matches, along with odds for winners, a sweet $10,000 contest online, and how to watch the event live!
The Demon to battle Roman Reigns for WWE Universal Championship
Heading into WWE Extreme Rules 2021 card, one thing is already known; Roman Reigns has been dominant in his lengthy Universal Championship reign. He’s held the belt for over 365 days now, giving him the second-longest championship reign in the company’s history. His previous PPV win featured Reigns defeating the returning John Cena at WWE SummerSlam 2021.
At Sunday’s PPV, Reigns will meet up with Finn Balor, except he’ll be fighting under his alter-ego, The Demon, and it’s an Extreme Rules match. That means anything goes and weapons are perfectly legal including chairs, Kendo sticks, and whatever else these guys want to use on each other.
Current odds at BetOnline.Ag feature the champ at a whopping -1000 to retain the belt with a win. That could mean pin, submission, or DQ of some sort. Balor is a +500 underdog.

That’s just one of five championships on the line at the event. In another, former champion Alexa Bliss will take on six-time WWE Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. Charlotte’s title reigns have been short lately, and it seems Alexa may have the fan support behind her. She’s also in her hometown, making this a perfect opportunity for her. Miss Bliss is a +150 underdog which seems to offer great value to bettors. Her opponent is -200 to win.
Also on the card, fans will see a Triple Threat Match for the US Championship with Damian Priest defending against Sheamus and Jeff Hardy, as well as matches for the SmackDown Women’s title and Tag Team championship.
