Now Playing: WWE 2K19 Skips Nintendo Switch, Gets Ronda Rousey As Pre-Order Bonus - GS News Update

WWE's PPV, Extreme Rules, aired on the WWE Network on Sunday, July 15. It was an evening featuring a few non-traditional wrestling bouts. This included Iron Man, Steel Cage, Tables, and Extreme Rules matches sprinkled throughout the evening. Full results for the Kickoff Show and the Main Card are below, but the biggest news involved Hulk Hogan returning to WWE. If you're a fan of the ex-UFC fighter, there was also plenty of Ronda Rousey to be seen in the crowd.

This year's show took place at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA. If you're interested in watching the entire event and don't already have it, you can still get a one-month trial subscription of the WWE Network for free. If you don't like the service, you can cancel after watching Extreme Rules.

Surprisingly, there is only one Extreme Rules match during the evening, and that bout will be for the Raw Women's Championship between Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss. However, one of the most entertaining matches of the evening should be Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens in a steel cage. Strowman has made Owens' life rough the past month, and recently, Owens got trapped in a porta potty, which Strowman flipped over. Will Owens try to get revenge or try to escape the cage as quickly as possible? If you're interested in more thoughts on Extreme Rules, check out predictions for the event and find out just how wrong we were.

In case you're not caught up, don't worry; we put the final results in spoiler blocks.
