The spoilers are starting to surface for the WWE pay-per-view scheduled to premiere tonight, Sunday, July 19, 2020, as match results and details from the PPV taping of "The Horror Show At Extreme Rules" are now making the rounds in the pro wrestling community.
WWE has already taped the "Wyatt Swamp Fight" between Bray Wyatt and Universal Champion Braun Strowman that is scheduled to air this evening at "The Horror Show at Extreme Rules."
The match was taped beginning Thursday night and lasted until Friday morning in a filming session that lasted up to seven hours, according to multiple sources.
The reason it took so long is that multiple takes were done to get various angles for editing purposes so these segments were done more than once.
The match that airs at "The Horror Show At Extreme Rules" is expected to be edited down to 20-30 minutes and will include several reptiles, including an alligator and a snake.
The finish of the match, which Wyatt is expected to win, is reportedly to mimic a horror movie where the loser is taken away or disappears but will end up returning for the culmination third match between the two, very likely at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view next month.
As noted, WWE's planned three-match story line with Strowman and Wyatt is expected to focus around the "Three Faces of Wyatt" idea with the Firefly Fun House, the Swamp Fight and the culmination at SummerSlam.
Wyatt lost the first match, but is expected to win the second bout at "The Horror Show At Extreme Rules." Because it is a non-title showdown and the ending of the "Wyatt Swamp Fight" is expected to lead into their finale, where it will Strowman taking on "The Fiend" as the final chapter to their story, at SummerSlam 2020.
Wyatt was said to have contributed significantly to the match, with help from Paul "Triple H" Levesque and Jeremy Borash, while Vince McMahon was apparently not involved.
As a result, the final product is expected to be different from other recent cinematic matches, with a different tone and feel to it.
Additionally, WWE stunt coordinator Ellis Edwards, who has experience with stunt work dating back to the 1990s, was involved in putting together several stunts for the shoot in a safe manner.
