Following the high profile matchup of the Rock and John Cena at WrestleMania, the WWE gives fans another big-time contest as Cena goes one-on-one with the returning Brock Lesnar at Extreme Rules on April 29.

With the upcoming pay-per-view usually filled with tons of gimmicks—such as street fights and tables matches—we found out what type of contest Lesnar and Cena will battle it out in at Extreme Rules in an article today on WWE.com.

From WrestlingInc.com:

According to WWE.com, John Laurinaitis has changed the Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena match at Extreme Rules into a no-disqualification, no count-out Extreme Rules Match.

No matter what gimmick the WWE attaches to this main-event encounter, Lesnar and Cena will likely be better than the CeNation’s leader's matchup with the People’s Champion at WrestleMania in Miami.

As for it being made an Extreme Rules match, there has been nothing extreme about the WWE since it went PG a few years ago to become more family-friendly for the tons of kids that watch and attend events through the year.

When the WWE revived ECW as the third brand alongside Raw and Smackdown, the Extreme Rules matches were usually great ones as they were the closest thing to the original version of Extreme Championship Wrestling.

With the violence toned way down in today’s WWE, we’ll like see a few solid chair shots by both superstars along with some of the other furniture around ringside coming into play like the steps and the poor, poor Spanish announce table that always finds itself in the middle of the action.

As we’re just little under two weeks away from the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, I can’t wait to see Brock Lesnar back in a WWE ring and if he can still bring the pain like in his earlier days with the company some eight years ago.

With the contest between Lesnar and Cena now being an Extreme Rules match, how do you think the main event showdown between the two go later this month.

And who will walk out of Chicago with a win?
