The feud between Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman got a whole lot more interesting when it stopped being about arm wrestling and tug-of-war and started being about two big beefy dudes trying to maim each other. They took the stage out on Monday Night Raw last week, leading to a stretcher job for the both of them.
Strowman remained out this week while Lashley came back to squash Rey Mysterio in his return. It was all in service of setting up this: a Last Man Standing match at the upcoming Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for this Sun., July 14, 2019, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Strowman has been out ahead for much of the program but Lashley goes into the match the hotter of the two.
Here’s the updated Extreme Rules match card:
- Undertaker & Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre
