WWE Extreme Rules kicked off with The New Day (WWE Champion Big E, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston) taking on Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles and Omos. This match was announced during the Kickoff show after a backstage fight between all of the wrestlers.
In the opening minutes, it was Lashley vs. Big E with Lashley hitting the early offense and E taking over shortly after. When Kingston tagged in, he was thrown across the ring by Lashley. Omos eventually tagged in and took over on offense on Kingston.
Kingston took a beating for several minutes and was about to make the hot tag but Lashley took out Big E at ringside. Woods was also taken out of the match, so Kingston did not have anyone to tag. Moments later, Woods recovered and tagged himself in.
Big E recovered and then made the hot tag and he cleaned house on all of the heels. Late in the match, Kingston did a springboard off the top but Omos swatted him and Kingston crashed on the floor at ringside. Lashley was about to hit Big E with the spear but Styles tagged himself in. Lashley accidentally speared Styles and that allowed Big E to win the match with the Big Ending.
