Following on from a very eventful Payback PPV, two new championship matches have been added to the Extreme Rules event in three weeks time.

The matches for the Women's and Tag Team Championships were revealed on Shane and Stephanie McMahon's first night joint controlling RAW.

New challengers

Following the horrific injury to Enzo Amore during last night's number one contenders match at Payback, the future of the Tag Team Championships was left up in the air heading into RAW.

However it hasn't taken long for the reigning Tag Team Champions the New Day to find new challengers as they were confirmed to be facing the Vaudevillains at Extreme Rules.

A win for the Vaudevillains at Extreme Rules would see them win both the WWE and NXT Tag Team Championships in the same calendar year.

The New Day however did address the concerning situation from the following eventing with Enzo Amore in what led to a segment that has surely kicked off several Extreme Rules feuds.

Seeing Big Cass without Enzo Amore was certainly unusual but it seems like the most popular tag team in all of NXT are set to take on the Dudley Boy at Extreme Rules.

Meanwhile the New Day will defend their title against the Vaudevillains but we will have to wait and see if an added stipulation is placed on the match between now and Extreme Rules.

Same rival, new challenge

Away from the Tag team division, the Women's division learnt that once again Natalya will take on Charlotte for the championship at Extreme Rules.

It may be the match we have seen several times already, but there will be two different twists on it this time around.

Following the controversial finish to their match at Payback, their clash at Extreme Rules will now be a submission match.

As an added precaution, Stephanie McMahon has banned Ric Flair from ringside claiming that he is becoming a distraction.

This now makes three title matches confirmed for Extreme Rules while Rusev won a battle royal to become the number one contender for the United States Championship as well.

That only leaves on title match up for grabs at Extreme Rules and Sami Zayn, Cesaro and Kevin Owens are all currently battling over the right to fight the Miz for the Intercontinental Championship.
