    It’s Friday, just two days before WWE hits the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for its Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV) on July 15, 2018, and there are 11 matches already booked for the card. That didn’t stop the promotion from adding yet another.

    Indeed, Sin Cara vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas has been booked for the Kickoff show.

    These two just had a fine match on SmackDown Live this past week, where Almas won clean. It didn’t seem to leave much room for a rematch but this is the Kickoff show and it’s entirely possible they’re simply going to give the former NXT champion another strong win as he continues establishing himself on the main roster.

    Here’s the updated Extreme Rules match card:

    • AJ Styles (c) vs. Rusev for the WWE Championship
    • Roman Reigns vs. Bobby Lashley
    • Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss (c) in an Extreme Rules match for the Raw Women’s Title
    • Carmella (c) vs. Asuka for the SmackDown Women’s Championship with James Ellsworth suspended in a shark cage
    • Seth Rollins vs. Dolph Ziggler (c) in a 30 minute Iron Man match for the Intercontinental Title
    • Jeff Hardy (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the United States Championship
    • The B-Team vs. Deleters of Worlds (c) for the Raw Tag Team Titles
    • Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. Team Hell No for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship
    • Constable Corbin vs. Finn Bálor
    • Kevin Owens vs. Braun Strowman in a Steel Cage match
    • The New Day vs. SAnitY in a Tables match
    • Sin Cara vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas
