- As noted, Randy Orton returned at Extreme Rules after WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura won the title from Jeff Hardy. Orton stared Nakamura down and then dropped Hardy. PWInsider reports that Orton was hidden backstage in a bus until about 30 minutes before he came out for the return. Orton's wife Kim was brought to ringside right before the return.
- Bobby Lashley took to Tiwitter and wrote the following diss to Roman Reigns after their match at Extreme Rules:
I came into your yard and took it over. There's a new big dog. #ExtremeRules— Bobby Lashley (@fightbobby) July 16, 2018
