Extreme Rules is an upcoming WWE pay-per-view event, that will be taking place on Sunday, May 22, 2016, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It will be the eighth Extreme Rules pay-per-view event.
WWE Extreme Rules features all types of matches, including an Extreme Rule Match between Roman Reigns and AJ Styles for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. On the April 4 Raw, AJ Styles won a four-way match for a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, which was being held by Roman Reigns.
The name “Extreme Rules” come from the fact that most of the matches are under hardcore wrestling regulations. The Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) originally used the term to describe the regulations for all of its matches, and the WWE adopted the event name in 2009, when they named One Night Stand to WWE Extreme Rules. Since 2009 up to now there has been at least one Steel Cage match, except 2012.
