Loved this show. Really enjoyed it. I was thoroughly entertained by Undertaker & Reigns vs Shane & Drew which was my MOTN. Main event was pretty fun too. Brock cashing in was icing on the cake.

Re: WWE Extreme Rules Discussion Thread

Seems like they rushed the timeline on Brock cashing in. Really thought they would have waited until October and do the cash in either on Fox, or around that time so that Brock they could move Lesnar over to SD.

I honestly donít know where you go with Brock on Raw. Heís beaten everyone. It has to set up either Seth vs. Brock, or theyíre going to get Reigns involved and itís going to be a triple threat.

I agree but think they desperately wanted Brock in a championship match at Summerslam. I was fantasy booking Summarslam in my head and there is nothing for Brock without the championship.

Re: WWE Extreme Rules Discussion Thread

Fun show all around. Taker looked solid, loved the throwback tank-top, reminded me of his Ministry days. Felt like putting that match on first was something of a response to the criticisms of "Taker's taking someone else's main event spot" and "Shane's pushed too hard." It was kinda like, 'We'll get this match out of the way first', you know?

Kinda hoped that Drew would've laid out Taker with a Claymore when Taker was doing his in-ring pose at the end to set up a match at Summerslam.

Joe/Kofi was okay, nothing too special. Joe deserves better than just being a 'warm body' for Kofi to go over on and pad his title reign.

Surprised at the IC Title change on the pre-show. It was one of those situations where you want both guys to win. Glad to see Nakamura being rebuilt, but I just wonder where Balor goes next.

Styles winning the US Title was the right move, the babyface chasing the heel is a better dynamic. I'm not a fan of Ricochet, but he'll definitely be a made man if he beats Styles at Summerslam to regain the gold.

The Revival beating the Usos clean as a whistle was a pleasant surprise. Sometimes heels need to grab a clean win here and there for legitimacy purposes.

New Day taking the Smackdown gold is fine, I guess. Just feels like a "been there, seen there" thing.

The main event was fun chaos. That cameraman who zoomed in on Lacey's ass deserves a raise. Lesnar cashing in was gonna polarize people for sure. I'm surprised Brock didn't cash in on Kofi at a later date in time for Smackdown's move to FOX.

The highlight of the night for me was Black vs Cesaro. That entire 10-minute match looked like it hurt like hell. Imagine the absolute classic they could pull off if they were given another 10 minutes.

Re: WWE Extreme Rules Discussion Thread

Really enjoyed Extreme Rules

Highlights for me were Taker, Lashley vs Strowman and the Main Event. Think WWE should really push Corbin as a heel. After that end of days to Becky 😂 fucking brilliant.

Pretty good show all around. Brock cashing in sucked because I hate not seeing the title much, hopefully he loses it quick, but its doubtful.

Re: WWE Extreme Rules Discussion Thread

I hate the stupidity of many matches.

I mean, if a tag team match is under no disqualification rules, then why wait for your partner to tag you in? Why not just enter when you feel like? You can't lose the match because of that.

So R-Truth didn't found Hornswoggle. What a shame. I really wished he would have found him at Extreme Rules.

Re: WWE Extreme Rules Discussion Thread

Wrestling commentary is almost never good to begin with, and having to listen to fucking Corey Graves, Byron Saxton and Tom Phillips call matches is actually horrendous. I imagine its not a thing, so I'll say it would be nice if WWE took notes from the MLB Network and had the equivalent of the Ballpark Only Audio so I didn't have to listen to the commentary without having to sacrifice the sounds of the crowd/wrestlers etc.
