WWE Extreme Rules 2017 is shaping up nicely two weeks out from the RAW exclusive show, and today, it was announced that the WWE Cruiserweight Title match between Neville and Austin Aries is now a Submission Match. WWE made the announcement of the match’s stipulation this afternoon.

This will be the third time these two have faced off for the Cruiserweight Title, and I am guessing that the third time’s the charm for Aries. Neville can definitely work an opponent into a submission victory, but with Aries’ Last Chancery being his finisher of choice since hitting the main roster, he may just have a slight edge in this bout.

And, as we reported earlier today, the winner of tonight’s match between Matt Hardy and Sheamus will name the stipulation for the RAW Tag Team Title match on the June 4th show.
