Becky should have a long reign as champion to capitalize on her Mania journey, only to lose it to someone like Sasha or a debuting Shayna. No after years of wanting Becky pushed as a top star, I'm not joining in the "Becky is overrated" crowd and just enjoying this rind that is happening.

To be fair the fault lies on the consumers and not for suppliers, the Extreme Rules "PPV" has not been extreme for several years now.

They stopped caring about making PPVs feel special when the WWE Network debuted, people used to pay more than 50 dollars for just one event (those were real PPVs) but now the business model is different, these monthly shows are mostly made to fullfil an established schedule with the overseas countries and to have more content to add to the channel.

Also with 5 hours per week, 20 hours a month of TV programing it's logical that many of those "special gimmick matches" are used to fill out the weekly shows.

You think that they really care about the safety of wrestlers? They only care about ratings and begin politically correct because without this things you know what happen? They lose the money, and no cash no more wwe.
Hello WrestlingPrototype I remember when the shooting star press was banned as both Shane McMahon and Brock lesner were not good doing it. Evan Bourne had to demonstrate the move several times in row to prove it was safe for him to do.

The WWE told Juventud Guerrera that some of his move set was banned like 450 splash after he fractured Paul London face.

So to say that WWE don't look the safety of wrestlers wrong , I get your point about money being a factor .

However if John Cena had been seriously inured in ring , in the modern era who would have transitioned to the mainstream to replace him as the mainstream star he is.

It is not just about wrestling ability but who is has star quality (Hulk Hogan. The Rock and John Cena) .

A wrestler can be the best technically, but is extremely dull.
They are rubbish with promo despite being over with fans, on chat shows , breakfast shows no personality and the public think boring.

Yours

They should at least make all the matches no DQ, look at the match list on wikipedia right now...

"Singles match, Singles match, Handicap match".

How 'extreme' will Extreme Rules be?

I know it's unfair to compare WWE to other companies, but after seeing many crazy hardcore matches the last couple of weeks, what expectation should we have? So far we only have (stipulation matches (4 if you include a handicap match). The hardcore tag match featuring Shane McMahon I could envision some craziness since Shane is known for doing crazy stunts. The mixed tag extreme rules match I am very not looking forward to it. Not only because they wrestled each other a bunch of times (and want Becky/Rollins to face different, more entertaining opponents) but also it's a mixed tag where we won't see Seth hit Lacey and Corbin hit Becky. I don't see what the appeal is here. The last man standing match may be good, I doubt they go over board and mainly expect chairs and spears through tables. Plus Nikki Cross could have picked any stipulation but she picked....a handicap match. Of the other matches, what stipulation matches do you think will be added? On paper it could deliver a good in ring product so WWE has that going for them, I don't think it will be bad, just feel the "Extreme Rules" label is an overstate.

Depends on where you set your expectations.

The show could be good but almost certainly won't be "extreme" in the ECW sense or even in the Moxley/Ganela sense. It's just a name and has been for a long time.

WWE will dust off the kendo sticks and that's about it. Maybe a couple weak chair chairs.

I honestly hope they go a bit further than they would have in some regard as an answer to AEW's thumbtacks to the foot spot.

Obviously nothing to that level, but I can see one or two of the matches getting a bit more rope than was originally planned for.

Because they think fans are too dumb to notice.
