Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. Finn Bálor

At WWE Extreme Rules, Roman Reigns will battle Finn Bálor in a highly anticipated rematch for the Universal Championship.

It has been a hard road for Bálor since reemerging on SmackDown. After having a SummerSlam title match stolen from him, the determined first-ever Universal Champion returned to reclaim the gold he never lost when he battled Reigns for the title on the Sept. 3 edition of the blue brand.

Although The Head of the Table emerged victorious over The Prince, the win was far from uncontroversial, having come after Bálor suffered a vicious pre-match attack at the hands of The Usos. As a result of the assault, Bálor will receive another opportunity at the Universal Championship at WWE Extreme Rules.

Find out if The Prince can finally take the throne from one of the most dominant Universal Champions of all time on the one night of the year when WWE goes extreme. WWE Extreme Rules streams live on Sunday, Sept. 26, at 8 ET/5 PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.
