Braun Strowman was rumored to be in line for a shot at the title, but an injury and subsequent surgery have removed him from the fold.  Lesnar has yet to defend his title since winning it six weeks ago. 

Also added to Extreme Rules is Dean Ambrose defending the Intercontinental title against former WWE Champion The Miz, and Alexa Bliss will defend the Raw Women's Championship against Bayley in a Kendo Stick on a Pole match.

WWE Extreme Rules takes place June 4 from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. Fightful will provide full coverage, and a live post-show podcast.
