World Wrestling Entertainment will be going extreme once again later this year when they present the Extreme Rules Premium Live Event on Saturday, October 8.

Extreme Rules will take place in the city known for being extreme when it comes to pro wrestling, the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia.

The reason for the Saturday PLE instead of Sunday is likely to avoid competition from the National Football League games that dominate television on Sunday nights.

You can find the full press release from WWE below:
