Extreme Rules 2017 this year is a Raw exclusive PPV and it's a unique event where the WWE uses gimmick matches.

Sadly though, this year might be the less "extreme" event they have had in years as most of the matches aren't hardcore style stipulations. That being said, the event could still deliver.

As of right now, there are only six matches scheduled for the entire event.

It's possible some unannounced matches could be added to the pre-show and main card. Anyway, let's have a look at what is in store for this Sunday's event.

Rich Swann and Sasha Banks vs. Noam Dar and Alicia Fox: Here is a random mixed tag match between two cruiserweights and two female superstars.

I love the couple of Noam Dar and Alicia Fox as they have made me laugh for the past several months.

That being said, they aren't booked as legit threats. I'm guessing Rich Swann and Sasha Banks are winning this one as they are the stronger team.

Cruiserweight Title Submission Match - Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries: This feud has been going on since WrestleMania 33 and Neville has won all of their previous matches.

Neville has also been the champion since January's Royal Rumble event and nobody has been able to stop him.

However, I think it's about time Austin Aries comes out on top. Aries has his Last Chancery move that could make Neville tap out.

Tag Team Title Steel Cage Match - The Hardy Boyz (c) vs. Cesaro and Sheamus: Cesaro and Sheamus have gotten new attitudes since they have turned heel.

Even though they could win this match, I don't see WWE halting the push of The Hardy Boyz anytime soon.

It doesn't appear as if the Broken gimmick of Matt Hardy is allowed to be on WWE TV just yet. I'm guessing The Hardy Boyz will win this match so that they can feud with The Revival soon afterwards.

Women's Title Kendo Stick on a Pole Match - Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Bayley: Bayley's babyface run hasn't been as strong as it was in NXT and it's starting to hurt her a little bit. Bayley is a talented wrestler, although the way she has been booked lately hasn't been that good.

Not to mention that horrible "This is your Life" segment ruined people's excitement for this match altogether.

Despite a lackluster build, I'm picking Alexa Bliss to win this one. She has been killing it lately as a heel and she deserves to reign a little while longer.

Intercontinental Title Match - Dean Ambrose (c) vs. The Miz (with Maryse): This is the less exciting match on the entire card.

Not only have these two wrestled each other numerous times before, but this match is just an ordinary singles contest.

I don't really care who wins, but The Miz needs a victory here. Dean Ambrose hasn't been as good as he could be and The Miz could elevate the Intercontinental Title more if he had it instead.

Fatal 5-Way Extreme Rules match to determine the #1 contender for the WWE Universal Championship - Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor vs.

Bray Wyatt vs. Samoa Joe: This is without a doubt the most exciting match on the card as all five of these men are really talented.

As a fan, I'd love to see Samoa Joe win although I don't think pushing him to face Brock Lesnar is the right move at the moment.

Seth Rollins is another cool wrestler, although I don't think it's time for him to face Lesnar either.

Roman Reigns usually wins every time, but I don't think WWE will waste his match with Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire. It's more than likely that Reigns vs.

Lesnar is being saved for next year's WrestleMania 34 event. That means either Bray Wyatt or Finn Balor are winning this.

I have to say Finn Balor is the favorite to win here and will face Lesnar at the Great Balls of Fire PPV. WWE hinted at this match happening thanks to Paul Heyman praising Balor as the best competitor in this match. Sadly though if Balor wins, he's likely going to get squashed by Lesnar at the next PPV...
