We are just hours away from tonight’s WWE Extreme Rules PPV, residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

It was just announced that on the Kickoff Show for Extreme Rules, Finn Balor will defend the Intercontinental Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura. 

The two squared off this past Tuesday on Smackdown Live that ended in Nakamura picking up a victory. 

Ryan’s Thought: I remember sending a tweet out last month asking who the IC Champion was, and my question still remains. The IC Championship has no meaning behind it and it’s not Balor’s fault. There hasn’t been anything done with it and I could say the same for Balor and Nakamura. Two great talented performers, who should be looked upon as main event stars, yet here we are seeing them on the pre-show. If anyone can make it work, it will be Balor and Nakamura. High expectations for this match between both men.
