WWE Extreme Rules Review: Not again!

So we’re past Extreme Rules, or are we? Because WWE is bound and determined to relive it. John Cena and Rusev have now met on three straight pay-per-views, dating back to Fast Lane, the one before WrestleMania 31, and we’re going to get part four at Payback.


WWE Extreme Rules Preview: Nothing to see here?

After the best WrestleMania of all-time, or at least the best ending to a WrestleMania of all-time, we have an Extreme Rules pay-per-view to look forward to, or rather, to not look forward to, based on the card.

Review: WWE Extreme Rules Hits and Misses

HIT: Solid booking The Shield wins by clean fall. Bray Wyatt … wins. (Nothing clean about that one.) The two hottest forces in WWE right now were put over against people who don’t always take the fall easily (Triple H and John Cena).


Extreme Rules? Extremely mediocre pay-per-view

Aside from the mid-card steel cage match pitting John Cena against Bray Wyatt, the lineup for Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view could be any Sunday night house show.
