The Horror Show At Extreme Rules Results (7/19): Orlando, FL.

Welcome to's live event coverage of The Horror Show At Extreme Rules, the latest pay-per-view offering from WWE.

Featured below are The Horror Show At Extreme Rules results from Sunday, July 19, 2020.


The Horror Show At Extreme Rules Kickoff Show is now underway, as Scott Stanford and Peter Rosenberg welcome us to the official pre-show for tonight's WWE pay-per-view event.

The two talk about the show and run down the card before sending things over to Renee Young, Booker T and JBL, who take a closer look at some of the matches on tap for this evening.

Kevin Owens vs. Murphy

After giving their in-depth analysis and insight into the first-ever "Eye For An Eye Match" between "The Monday Night Messiah" Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio at tonight's show, we send things down to ringside for our first bout of the evening at The Horror Show At Extreme Rules.

From there, the announce team of Tom Phillips, Samoa Joe and Byron Saxton welcome us to the commentary desk where they prepare us for the pre-show match of the evening.

With that said, we hear the theme of Kevin Owens and he makes his way down to the ring. Out next is his opponent for the Kickoff Show singles bout, Murphy.

As soon as the bell sounds, Owens charges at Murphy and looks to immediately take him out of there. Owens goes for the Cutter a few times but Murphy ultimately avoids it.

Murphy ends up taking over for a run in the offensive driver's seat, however Owens ends up slamming Murphy into the corner and following up with a running cannnoball that gets the crowd inside the WWE PC alive and on their feet.

Owens blasts Murphy with some chops in the corner and then puts Murphy on the top turnbuckle. He hooks his arm looking for a super-plex, however Murphy punches and forearm-blasts his way out of there, knocking Owens down to the mat.

He comes flying off seconds later and nails Owens with double-knees on the way down for a near fall. Owens ends up turning the tables on Murphy and takes over the offensive control after a beautiful moonsault that led to a big Stunner from Owens for the pin fall victory.

Winner: Kevin Owens

After the Owens-Murphy match, we are treated to some more analysis and insight into the matches on tonight's PPV card from Peter Rosenberg and Scott Stanford before things are sent over to Renee Young, Booker T and JBL, who again take a closer look into some of tonight's matches.

We see some more video packages, finishing with an elaborate one for the WWE Championship match with a yet-to-be-named stipulation between Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler, before Rosenberg and Stanford wrap up the Kickoff Show.


It's time for The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. Stay tuned for our first update from the PPV broadcast momentarily.

An absolutely epic opening video package gets us started and afterwards, Michael Cole and Corey Graves welcome us inside the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL.

Tables Match For SmackDown Tag-Team Titles
The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura

From there, we hear the familiar theme song of The New Day and the SmackDown Tag-Team Champions make their way down to the ring. The Tables Match for the SmackDown Tag-Team Titles will be kicking off tonight's pay-per-view.

After the team of Big E. and Kofi Kingston settle into the squared circle for our opening bout, we are treated to the ring entrance of their opponents -- the challengers for tonight's tables match for the blue brand tag titles -- Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura.

While Cesaro and Nakamura pass by the many tables set up around ringside, Cole and Graves take us through recent Friday Night SmackDown highlights to tell the story of tonight's match.

The bell sounds and as Cole and Graves explain on commentary, there are no tags in this match unlike a regular bout, and that is evident straight out of the gate as all four men collide in the middle of the ring like an old-school XFL kick off.

Big E. and Kingston eventually establish the first offensive lead before heading out of the ring to introduce the first table into the ring for this match. Cesaro and Nakamura end up meeting them outside for a brawl before the table can be brought into the ring.

The New Day end up taking out Cesaro and Nakamura and bashing them into the ring steps and ringside barricade. Afterwards, Big E. sets up a table on the floor while Kingston stays at work on Cesaro. Big E. blasts Cesaro across the back and now he and Kingston are looking for a double-team move near the table that Big E. just set up.

Nakamura, however, makes the save before they can put Cesaro through the table to end the match as planned. Now the action returns inside the squared circle, where Nakamura and Cesaro double-team Kingston in the corner after knocking Big E. out to the floor. They have a table set up in the ring and look to hit a double-team power bomb to put Kingston through the table, however Big E. recovers and re-enters the ring in time to make the save.

Big E. tries putting Nakamura through a table, however he doesn't have any luck. Now we watch as Big. E hits a big spear on Cesaro as he's standing on the ring apron. The momentum nearly puts Cesaro through a table set up on the floor, however they just miss it on their way through the ropes. Moments later, Kingston goes for a tope suicida to the floor, but as he soars through the ropes, Nakamura and Cesaro swing a table and blast him on his way down.

Nakamura and Cesaro end up stacking two tables on top of each other and Cesaro hoists Kingston up on the top-rope and power bombs him through the two tables to end the match. We have new SmackDown Tag-Team Champions.

Winners and NEW SmackDown Tag-Team Champions: Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura

SmackDown Women's Title
Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross

Alexa Bliss, Nikki Cross, Asuka and Kairi Sane are shown backstage. They are all trying to pump up Cross before she heads out to the ring for her title opportunity, which is up next at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules.

On that note, a happy but nervous Cross makes her way down to the squared circle accompanied by Bliss. From there, The Golden Role Models make their way out, as Bayley makes her way out alongside Sasha Banks ready to defend her SmackDown Women's Title in the first of two women's singles title matches scheduled for tonight.

The ring announcer does the formal pre-match introductions for this championship contest, the bell sounds and here we go with our second PPV bout of the evening.

The match is underway and it doesn't take long for Bayley to show her disrespect to her opponent, as she smacks Cross. Cross gets pissed and fires up, slapping Bayley back and hitting her with a high spot out of nowhere for a very close near fall in the early goings that Bayley sold well.

Bayley tries to roll out to the floor to regroup, however Cross goes out after her, continuing her smothering offensive gameplan and not allowing Bayley any time to recompose herself. Cross goes to work on the floor before hitting a flying cross body splash off the top rope for a near fall.

The bout spills out to the floor again, however this time the veteran champion uses some dirty heel tactics to gain the upper-hand and take over the offensive control in this match. The action resumes inside the ring with Bayley fully in control of things now. She's in such control that she's chatting with the announcers between moves about her hair or a tattoo or something.

Nikki Cross fires up moments later and starts taking it to the champion with rapid-fire punches. Cross ends up hitting a nice Cutter on the top-rope on Bayley. Bayley tries turning the tables with a Bayley-to-belly but Cross takes Bayley down looking for a Cross-Face. Bayley avoids it and hits the Bayley-to-belly on Cross for a near fall as the crowd inside the WWE PC starts to come alive.

Bayley takes Cross up the ropes in the corner and hits a nice super-plex for a near fall. Cross rolls Bayley up from behind for a close near fall as Bayley was bickering with the referee and the announcers after failing to put Cross away with the aforementioned super-plex.

Finally things culminate with Banks providing an assist by passing her "Boss" brass-knuckles-like ring to the SmackDown Women's Champion and providing a distraction to the ref that allows Bayley to blast Cross with it in the body, setting up the finish for the champ who retains her title.

Winner and STILL SmackDown Women's Champion: Bayley

Firefly Fun House -- The Horror Show At Extreme Rules Edition

We shoot to The Horror Show at Extreme Rules special edition of the Firefly Funhouse with Bray Wyatt.

He talks about tonight being a creepy, scary show, but the scariest is yet to come. He asks for footage to be played and then complains and lectures someone for playing the wrong tape on purpose.

Wyatt continues to show his mad scientist side off some more and the segment ends.

Apollo Crews Fails Pre-Match Physical, U.S. Title Match Off

We then shoot to the announce team that informs us that the scheduled United States Championship contest between Apollo Crews and MVP will not be happening tonight.

The announcers inform us that Apollo did show up to the WWE PC today, however he did not pass his pre-match physical and as a result the title bout is off.

They say the cause is an injury that Apollo suffered at the hands of MVP and Bobby Lashley on WWE Raw. As MVP and Lashley make their way down to the ring, we see highlights explaining the injury after that.

Once the highlights end, MVP gets on the mic and says due to forefit, the new United States Champion is ... as he drops the mic he exits the ring and grabs the title. He brings it back in the ring and finishes by saying "... MVP!"

He poses with the title and his music plays again as he and Lashley exit the ring and head to the back.

Eye For An Eye Match
Seth Rollins vs. Rey Mysterio

The video package airs for the first-ever "An Eye For An Eye Match" where the winner can only be determined when one wrestler extracts one of the eyes of the other.

Seth Rollins and future WWE Hall of Fame legend Rey Mysterio do battle next here at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules.

On that note, Rollins' theme hits and "The Monday Night Messiah" makes his way down to the ring. As he enters the ring, he pulls out a pair of plyers from his jacket pocket.

Out next is Rey Mysterio, as we hear his music and watch as he sprints down to the ring. The bell sounds and Rey continues his speedy closing of the distance between himself and Rollins, as these two waste absolutely zero time in getting after it.

Rey goes for the 6-1-9 early on, but Rollins avoids it. Rollins immediately tries going after Rey's eye, however Rey avoids it and starts going to work on Rollins. Rey pulls a table out from under the ring. Back in the ring, Rey again sets Rollins up for a 6-1-9, however Seth rolls out of the ring to avoid it.

On his way back in, Rollins blasts Rey in the gut. He goes to follow-up, but Mysterio nails him in the gut. He goes for a flying hurricanrana on Rollins while he is standing on the apron, however Rollins stops him and hoists him up and blasts him with a Falcon Arrow on the hardest part of the ring. Rey flops down to the floor afterwards and we are treated to some immediate replays of that awesome spot. When we return, Rollins starts looking to tear at the mask of Rey to enable himself to detatch one of Rey's eyes for the win in this Eye For An Eye match later on.

The two continue to brawl outside the ring. Rey looks to grab a kendo stick that has been thrown in the ring, but Rollins grabs him from behind and tries scratching at his eyes. He takes him over to the corner of the ring steps, where all of this got started months ago, but Rey avoids the attack and the two return the action inside the ring. Rollins tries stabbing Rey in the eye with the tip of the kendo stick before throwing him out to the floor like a rag-doll.

Back in the ring, Rollins goes to work on Rey with the kendo stick, hitting him repeatedly. He wedges it in the corner of the ring and tries whipping Rey into it eye-first. Rey puts on the breaks, however, and turns the tide, taking over the offensive control in the bout.

Mysterio takes it to "The Monday Night Messiah" with a big frogsplash off the top-rope and then he runs the ropes with his feet for a cool tornado DDT. The fans in the WWE PC fire up as Rey fires up on offense. Rey breaks the kendo stick in half and takes the shredded end of the broken half of the kendo stick and looks to stab it in the eye of Rollins. Rey lets go and hits Rollins with a 6-1-9.

Rey goes out after Rollins on the floor. Rollins reverses Rey and looks to smash his eye on the corner of the ring steps, however Rey avoids it and reverses things, blasting Rollins with a Stomp on the floor. Rey snaps and grabs Rollins face, shoving it eye-first into the corner of the ring steps. He pushes it down but Rollins low-blows him from behind and drops him to his butt. While he's seated up against the barricade, which has no give to it, we see Rollins blast him with a brutal super kick. He follows that up by hitting his own Stomp on the floor to Rey.

Now we watch as Rollins turns semi-psycho and snatches Mysterio up with evil intentions as it relates to his eyes. Rollins grabs Rey and smashes his face on the steps. He smooshes his eye into the corner of the ring steps before leaving his face positioned like that. He backs up, seemingly looking to run and hit a Stomp while his face was on it. Actually, Rollins backed up because he became nauseaus at what he saw.

He did it.

Medics and WWE officials rush to Rey and we are informed that "it's out." They rush Rey to the back. Rollins pukes while this is going on, as what he did literally turned his stomach. As Rey disappears from view after being rushed backstage, Rollins looks around while everyone serving as crowd members boos and beats on the safety glass like pissed off HHL fans. Rollins slowly looks around before heading to the back.

Winner: Seth Rollins

Backstage with Braxton: Bayley Boasts & Brags, Joined By "Boss" Banks

Backstage, Kayla Braxton is with Bayley. She talks in her serious voice about what just happened to Mysterio and says if he gets a chance to see this, he needs to know he's not seeing double -- Bayley does still have dos straps.

Bayley continues to gloat and brag until "The Boss" Sasha Banks enters the picture. Then, Bayley brags on her behalf after giving her a faux ring announcer introduction as a soon-to-be double champion.

Banks vows victory in her RAW Women's Championship match later in the evening and the two walk off.

RAW Women's Title
Asuka (c) vs. Sasha Banks

The video package for the first-ever "Wyatt Swamp Fight" airs concluding with "Coming Soon." Instead, we are then treated to the ring entrance of RAW Women's Champion Asuka, who makes her way down to the ring accompanied by Kairi Sane.

Out next is her opponent, the challenger for tonight's bout, one-half of the reigning WWE Women's Tag-Team Champions -- "The Boss" Sasha Banks. Banks makes her way to the ring accompanied by SmackDown Women's Champion and the other-half of the WWE Women's Tag-Team Champions, Bayley.

The ring announcer does the formal pre-match introductions for each competitor ahead of this title bout and then the bell sounds to officially get it started. These two lock up and get this one underway.

Banks slaps a side head-lock on the champ and tightens it up before bringing a knee up north to blast Asuka in the dome. And again. Asuka hits the ropes to escape, however Banks yanks a handful of her hair to slam her down to the mat. Asuka throws a kick up from off her back that blasts Banks in the grill.

Sasha ends up tripping Asuka down to the mat and countering her into a dangerous submission attempt. Asuka makes it to the ropes to force the hold to be broken, so Banks lets go and stomps on her hands like Kamaru Usman stomping on Jorge Masvidal's feet at UFC Fight Island earlier this month.

"The Boss" goes on to enjoy several minutes in the offensive driver's seat as this match cruises along. Asuka shows a hope spot, but Banks regains control and hits a big frog-splash off the top-rope before locking the RAW Women's Champion in her Banks Statement submission finishing hold. After being stuck in the hold for a while, Asuka finally makes it to the ropes to break the hold.

Banks and Asuka go outside the ropes and argue on the ring apron. As Banks tries talking trash, Asuka blasts her in the mouth with a big kick. Asuka goes for an Asuka Lock but instead switches it to a pin attempt that only gets a two count. Asuka fires up, blasting Banks with a variety of vicious kicks, leading to another pin attempt from the champion. Asuka hits a few German-release suplexes and then nails Banks with a running flying hip-attack for a near fall.

They are giving this match plenty of time to develop, and it's proving to be worthy of that precious PPV time, as it is delivering on all fronts and the crowd is letting them know it now as they pick up the pace with their offense. Asuka and Banks battle to the corner of the ring and head up to the top-rope together. Banks knocks Asuka down to the mat. Banks turns around on the top-rope but Asuka recovers and goes up after her. Asuka goes for a super German-release suplex off the top, but ends up thrown to the side.

Banks slips and hurts her knee on the top rope leading to the ref to check on her. She screams at the ref to get out of her face. She and Asuka scream in each other's face that they have to be the champion. Asuka snatches Banks up in the Asuka lock. As Bayley goes to get involved, Kairi Sane runs over and drops her.

Meanwhile, Banks and Asuka try to pin each other, but neither can put the other away. Bayley breaks free from Sane and throws a title in the ring while Banks is stuck in the Asuka lock. As the title goes to get the belt out of the ring Bayley slides in behind him. Banks is tapping out but the ref doesn't see it. Bayley walks right into a super kick from Asuka.

Banks gets into an argument with the ref after trying to use the belt. Asuka accidentally green-mists the ref. While blinded, Bayley takes out Asuka. She takes the shirt off of the ref and counts to three while Bayley has Asuka covered. She marches over to the time keeper and orders him to ring the bell. She collects the WWE Women's Tag-Team Titles, her SmackDown Women's Title and the RAW Women's Title and joins Banks, still in her ref shirt, over on the entrance ramp.

We see replays of all this as Banks' music finally starts playing. Asuka and Sane complain from the ring while Banks and Bayley taunt them from the entrance way while the announcers play confused and state that a licensed WWE official has to make the count for a title to change hands. Regardless, the title is currently in "The Boss'" hands.

Winner and NEW RAW Women's Champion: Sasha Banks

WWE Title (One-Sided "Extreme Rules" Match)
Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler

The video package for our WWE Championship bout of the evening between Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler airs. The match, which still has yet to announce the special stipulation, is up next here at The Horror Show At Extreme Rules.

After the video package wraps up, we head back inside the WWE PC where Dolph Ziggler makes his way down to the ring. Out next is the reigning title-holder coming into the contest, Drew McIntyre.

Both men are in the ring now and the ring announcer does the formal pre-match introductions as McIntyre stands with a look of confusion on his face awaiting to hear what stipulation will be added to this match, where his title will be on-the-line.

Following the official introductions by the ring announcer, Ziggler gets on the mic and brags about being smarter than Drew. He says this WWE Title match will be under "Extreme Rules," but for Dolph Ziggler only. If McIntyre runs away and gets counted out, Ziggler wins the title. If he gets purposely disqualified, Ziggler wins the title.

The bell sounds and this one is now officially underway. Ziggler immediately runs out to the floor and goes under the ring. He grabs a foreign object and blatantly blasts Drew as he comes out after him. Drew ends up using his size and strength advantage to establish the early offensive lead in this one regardless, until once again Ziggler uses a weapon blatantly to turn the momentum in his favor.

Once back in the ring, McIntyre takes over on offense again, as the rules are only benefitting Ziggler in spots thus far. Drew clotheslines Ziggler over the top-rope and out to the floor. Ziggler shoves McIntyre face-first into the ring post and then yanks him pony-tail first into the plexiglass near the ringside barricade. "The Show Off" grabs a table from under the ring and sets it up on the floor right outside the ring.

McIntyre goes out after him and punches Ziggler before hoisting him up for a suplex. He nearly suplexes Ziggler through the table, however on his way down he realizes what that would mean and moves just in time, suplexing Ziggler on the regular mats surrounding the concrete floor around the ring. The action resumes inside the squared circle where McIntyre hits a nice fall-away slam before taunting Ziggler, saying "I can do this all night!"

As Ziggler slowly crawls up McIntyre's body, once prone on his feet again, he blatantly blasts "The Scottish Psychopath" in his Scottish family jewels before heading out to the floor to retrieve a steel chair. Once he has said-chair, Ziggler returns to the ring and bashes it across McIntyre's back over and over and over and over and over again. He tries covering him after about five or so chair shots, but McIntyre is still able to get his shoulder up before the referee's hand hits the mat three times.

On the floor, McIntyre nails Ziggler with a belly-to-back suplex. He takes Ziggler up on top of an announce table near the ring looking to hit him with another one. Instead, however, Dolph knocks Drew off the table and leaps off after him, nailing him on the way down with a Fame-Asser. Back in the ring, Ziggler leaps on McIntyre's back at the perfect time, locking in a sleeper hold that brings the WWE Champion down to one knee. He eventually gets back to his feet, where Ziggler throws him into the ring post from inside the ring -- twice. McIntyre nails Ziggler with a clothesline that turns "The Show Off" inside out.

Both men are down now. Ziggler rolls to the floor. Drew goes out after him. Drew slingshots Dolph face-first into the plexiglass near the ring barricade. The action gets back in the ring where McIntyre hits Ziggler with a reverse-Alabama Slam with authority. The fans stomp and clap sensing the finish for Drew. He calls for the Claymore Kick and goes for it, but Ziggler catches him coming in with a steel chair shot. He follows that up with a Zig-Zag for a pin attempt, however he only gets a count of two.

Ziggler sends McIntyre out to the floor. He puts him on the table that was set out earlier in the bout. He heads back into the ring and climbs up to the top rope. Ziggler jumps up -- real high -- before flying out to the floor where he lands on top of McIntyre with a flying elbow smash that puts him through the table violently. McIntyre is down and the ref begins his count. Remember if he is counted out, he loses the title. He ends up making it to the ring just before the count of ten.

McIntyre hits one of his semi-finishers once back in the ring, however moments later Ziggler nails him with a Fame-Asser and a Zig-Zag before blasting him with one final high spot. He covers him, but Drew still somehow finds a way to kick out before the count of three. A frustrated Ziggler shouts out, "Why won't you die?!?!" He continues to lose his cool, looking around the ring at all the weapons. He ends up clearing the ring of said weapons before letting out a war cry as the announcers hype up something big.

Dolph shouts that it is his time as he waits for McIntyre to make it back to his feet. He is slamming his foot down in the corner, ala Heartbreak Kid waiting to land Sweet Chin Music. As Drew slowly starts to get back to a standing position, Dolph loads up for a super kick but walks right into a Claymore Kick that McIntyre threw out of nowhere with lightning-like speed. He covers Ziggler and scores the pin, retaining his title despite the odds being stacked against him with the unique stipulations Ziggler set at the start of the bout.

Winner and STILL WWE Champion: Drew McIntyre

Wyatt Swamp Fight
Bray Wyatt vs. Braun Strowman

With the WWE Championship match in the rear view mirror, it's time to head to the first-ever "Wyatt Swamp Fight" between Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman.

The video package for the second match in a row between former Wyatt Family allies at a WWE pay-per-view wraps up, and it's now time to send things to the latest "Cinematic experience" produced by WWE.

The Wyatt Swamp Fight is up next here at The Horror Show At Extreme Rules.

We head to the Wyatt Swamp Fight location and it doesn't take long before mind games and general oddness starts taking place, with Wyatt benefitting and Strowman suffering.

Wyatt has Strowman down early and is talking about how things used to be and how they didn't have to get to where they are today. He uses mind games against Braun, distracting him with old Wyatt Family references.

Now we see Wyatt point out something or someone approaching Strowman. It looks like someone holding a giant snake. The snake strikes right at the camera, seemingly signafying that Strowman was attacked.

Strowman is duking it out with someone other than Wyatt now, although he is having his way with him. Strowman takes the man out near a camp fire that is blazing in the background. The man ends up catching on fire and running around in flames while Strowman laughs like a psycho as if he's enjoying it.

From there, we see the screen cut away and when it returns, we see another figure approaching or calling out to Strowman. This time, it appears to be Alexa Bliss. She talks about how she knows he's always had feelings for her and teases him with the thought of enjoying the life together she knows he has always wanted.

Clips from them working together, such as in the Mixed Match Challenge Series, are shown, as Bliss, dressed up like Sister Abigail, continues to taunt/haunt Strowman's imagination.

This leads to the fight breaking out between Strowman and Wyatt again. This time, they brawl near a swamp and we see Wyatt using all kinds of tricks. Finally, Strowman beats him down and throws him in the swamp. He stands and stares before finally thinking it's over. He even says as much.

Then out of nowhere, Wyatt pops back up from the swamp after the screen almost seemed to be fading out to end the show. Things get going again, however this time, when Wyatt disappears, he resurfaces as his alter-ego, "The Fiend."

The Horror Show at Extreme Rules 2020 goes off the air with a close-up of the face of "The Fiend" mask as we hear evil laughter. This will likely build up to the rumored third and final bout between Wyatt and Strowman, with Wyatt facing "The Monster Among Men" as his "Fiend" persona for the Universal Title at WWE SummerSlam next month. This was never officially announced on the PPV, however.

The show goes off the air on that note and we head straight into the return of "Undertaker: The Last Ride -- Tales From The Deadman." That will do it for our live coverage. Thanks for joining us and make sure to stop back by on Monday night, July 20, 2020, for LIVE WWE Monday Night RAW results coverage, featuring the fallout from The Horror Show At Extreme Rules 2020.
