The 2020 edition of WWE's Extreme Rules pay-per-view -- officially branded "The Horror Show at Extreme Rules" -- took place on Sunday, July 19 at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. The stipulation-heavy card was headlined by a WWE championship match with a one-sided stipulation, a match where the winning condition was to pluck out your opponent's eye, and a confrontation in a swamp.

A pair of women's championship matches flew under the radar, but outside of some truly puzzling conclusions, featured some of the best bell-to-bell action of the night.
