WWE The Horror Show at Extreme Rules 2020


The Horror Show at Extreme Rules was a professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brand divisions. It was broadcast on July 19, 2020. While the majority of the event aired live from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, the Wyatt Swamp Fight was pre-recorded at an undisclosed location about two hours outside of Orlando on July 16–17. It was the twelfth event under the Extreme Rules chronology, and the first to have an altered title.

The event was originally scheduled to be held at the SAP Center in San Jose, California; however, the Santa Clara County government restricted public gatherings indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, and just like the majority of WWE’s other shows since mid-March, the event was moved to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. It was subsequently the final WWE pay-per-view to be held at the Performance Center, as WWE’s events were moved to Orlando’s Amway Center the following month.

Seven matches were contested at the event, including one on the Kickoff pre-show. In the main event, Bray Wyatt defeated Braun Strowman in a Wyatt Swamp Fight. In other prominent matches, Drew McIntyre defeated Dolph Ziggler to retain the WWE Championship in an Extreme Rules match in which the stipulation only applied to Ziggler, Seth Rollins defeated Rey Mysterio in an Eye for an Eye match, and Artist Collective (Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura) defeated The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston) in a tables match to win the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
