WWE Extreme Rules takes place tonight at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and unless there’s a last-minute announcement, Bayley and Sasha Banks won’t be wrestling on the show despite their highly personal feud.

According to a report by WrestlingNews.co, the word within WWE is that the creative team wants to hold off their match until SummerSlam on August 19.
SummerSlam takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, which was also the site of their epic 30-Minute WWE Iron Man Match at NXT TakeOver: Respect on August 22, 2015. It marked the first time where women competed in a WWE Iron Man Match, as well as the first time two women anchored the main event of a live event on the WWE Network.
When Bayley and Sasha do have their match, there is a creative pitch for their past history in NXT to be brought up and their TakeOver match in particular.
On Raw this week, Dr. Shelby enlisted the aid of an associate during Bayley and Sasha’s friendship counseling.
