A big six-man tag team match has been added to WWE Extreme Rules with The Brawling Brutes trio facing off against their rivals, Imperium.
The rivalry between the Brawling Brutes (Sheamus, Butch & Ridge Holland) and Imperium (Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser & Giovanni Vinci) has been heating on Smackdown over the last several weeks, so now WWE has added it to the Extreme Rules card on Saturday, October 8th in Philadelphia.
When the Brawling Brutes faced Imperium on the September 9th edition of Smackdown, Imperium got the win in a wild matchup, so the Brutes will be looking for revenge in what WWE is calling a Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook Match. There was a match with a similar name when Drew McIntyre beat Sheamus on the July 29 episode of Smackdown as well.
Gunther tweeted about asking about the match type, so Sheamus replied to it:
— Sheamus (@WWESheamus) September 29, 2022
Another way of putting it is that will be like a No Holds Barred tag team match likely without any tags and will end in pinfall or submission.
On the October 7th edition of Smackdown prior to Extreme Rules, Sheamus will challenge Gunther for the Intercontinental Title for the second time. The first time they faced off, they had a Match of the Year contender at WWE Clash at the Castle on September 3rd. Gunther won because Sheamus couldn’t hit the Brogue Kick due to a back injury, so Gunther hit a Powerbomb and clothesline to win the match.
Here’s the updated lineup for Extreme Rules in Philadelphia.
Strap Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross
Fight Pit Match: Matt Riddle vs. Seth Rollins
Extreme Rules Match for the Smackdown Women’s Championship: Liv Morgan (c) vs. Ronda Rousey
Ladder Match for the Raw Women’s Championship: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley
“I Quit” Match: Edge vs. Finn Balor
Six-Man Tag Team Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook Match: The Brawling Brutes vs. Imperium
