WWE’s Extreme Rules event was last Sunday and we’ve had a ton of events in the pro wrestling world happen since then. It might be easy to forget a simple stipulation of the main event match, but wrestling fans have a great memory.
The main event mixed tag team match at Extreme Rules included a stipulation where if Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch were able to win then Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans would be done getting title opportunities with those champions. Of course, Brock Lesnar ended up cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase to ruin Seth Rollins’ night, but before that happened the babyfaces won their match.
This win for Rollins and Lynch meant that neither Corbin nor Evans would be allowed to have another title match. However, that didn’t last long at all. In fact, it lasted five days.
Because Lynch found herself defending the RAW Women’s Title against Lacey Evans not five days after Extreme Rules as she defended her title against the Lady Of WWE in two consecutive house show events.
WWE has a history of going back on their match consequences, but it really didn’t taken them long at all to change their mind about not giving Lacey Evans any more title shots. Since Seth Rollins lost his title it might not make a huge difference if Baron Corbin gets another shot at the Universal Title, but since Becky Lynch retained her title one would think that stipulation would still be in play, but you’d obviously be wrong.
