My thoughts on WWE Extreme Rules 2015

WWE Extreme Rules 2015 Results

Kickoff Match

 

Neville def. Bad News Barrett

Bad News Barrett was originally scheduled to face Intercontinental Champion Daniel Bryan for the championship on Pay-Per-View, but due to the fact that Bryan was not medically cleared to compete, BNB faced Neville on the Extreme Rules Kickoff Show instead. This was an opportunity for Neville to shine on the big stage and he made the most of it by pulling off the upset and beating BNB. I think that this should definitely put Neville in line for an opportunity at the Intercontinental Championship.

 

Pay-Per-View Matches

 

“Kiss Me Arse” Match

Dolph Ziggler def. Sheamus

This is a match that I predicted would happen at Extreme Rules. In Sheamus’ native Irish terms, a “Kiss Me Arse” Match means a “Kiss My Ass” Match. This meant that whoever lost the match would have to kiss the winner’s backside. In the end, it was Ziggler who rolled up Sheamus to get the pin and the win. After minutes of hesitation, it appeared that Sheamus was going to man up and live up to the stipulation; however, he ended up hitting Ziggler with a low blow followed by a Brogue Kick knocking Ziggler out cold. Then, …

My Hopes/Predictions for WWE Extreme Rules

WWE Extreme Rules 2015

Kickoff Match

 

WWE Tag Team Championship Match

Cesaro & Tyson Kidd (c) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E)

The problem with this match is that there is absolutely nobody to root for. As a matter of fact, it should be fan favorites The Lucha Dragons (Kalisto & Sin Cara) who are the #1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship. In a recent #1 Contenders’ Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship on Raw, The Lucha Dragons got screwed when an interfering New Day member Xavier Woods prevented Sin Cara from reentering the ring, which allowed The New Day to get the win by countout and become the #1 contenders. As far as this match goes, I do not have a preference to which team wins or walks out as champions, but I think I am going to root against Cesaro & Kidd. What I am really hoping for is that friction starts to develop between The New Day and it will lead Kofi Kingston to turn face. That is another problem, Kingston is currently a heel and he is not right for that role.

WWE Smackdown 5-24-13: The Shield Continues to Dominate

On this edition of Smackdown, one-half of Team Hell No Daniel Bryan was still having a hard time dealing with Team Hell No losing the WWE Tag Team Championship at the Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View event last Sunday. Bryan has this paranoia that he is the weak link of Team Hell No. Despite words of encouragement from the other half of Team Hell No Kane, it did nothing in snapping Bryan out of his paranoia. In his match against Jack Swagger, Bryan managed to beat him by getting him to tap out to his signature submission hold “The “No” Lock”. After the match, Bryan had snapped and once again locked Swagger in the “No” Lock” until his tag team partner Kane pulled him off. On this week’s edition of Backstage Fallout from Smackdown on WWE on YouTube, Bryan continued his tirade. Also, new United States Champion and Shield leader Dean Ambrose made his first championship defense against the very man he beat for it, Kofi Kingston. At one point in the match, while Kofi was getting ready to launch himself off the top ring rope onto Ambrose, the new WWE Tag Team Champions and other two Shield members Seth Rollins …

WWE Raw 5-20-13: Two Superstars Get the Biggest Wins of Their Careers

The show began with Ryback actually arriving into the arena in the back of an ambulance. After Ryback stepped out of the ambulance and then on top of it, he then went on to challenge WWE Champion John Cena in an Ambulance Match for the championship at the upcoming Payback Pay-Per-View event and the match has been made official. Also, after hearing all the rumors, it was confirmed that Paul Heyman had enlisted a new client named Curtis Axel, the man formerly known as Michael McGillicutty. As Heyman discusses Axel, he is then interrupted by WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H. Triple H then tells Heyman that he has every intention of kicking his ass. Then, Axel gets in Triple H’s face, but ends up receiving a slap for his troubles. Triple H then says that he will face Axel in a match later on in the evening and added that after he kicks Axel’s ass, he’s going to kick Heyman’s. Also, Alberto Del Rio (accompanied by his personal ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez), the new #1 contender to Dolph Ziggler’s World Heavyweight Championship, went one-on-one with NXT Champion Big E Langston (accompanied by AJ Lee). In the end, thanks to …

WWE Extreme Rules: The Shield Score Championships, Brock Lesnar Rules the Cage, Jack Swagger Says “I Quit”, and No One Is Left Standing

At Extreme Rules, The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, & Roman Reigns) conquered and won gold. First, it was Ambrose who beat Kofi Kingston for the United States Championship. Despite the fact that the other two members of The Shield accompanied Ambrose, they did not play any role whatsoever in Ambrose winning the championship. Ambrose won the championship fair and square, so the entire world has no choice but to give the devil his due. Also, it was the other two Shield members (Rollins & Reigns) who won the WWE Tag Team Championship from Team Hell No (Kane & Daniel Bryan) in a Tornado Tag Team Match. Also, the “I Quit” Match between Alberto Del Rio (accompanied by his personal ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez) and Jack Swagger (accompanied by Zeb Colter) to determine the #1 contender to Dolph Ziggler’s World Heavyweight Championship was a controversial one. It all started when Colter snatched the towel that was in possession of Rodriguez and threw it in the ring, trying to deceive referee Mike Chioda into thinking that Rodriguez had thrown in the towel for Del Rio. At first, Colter had succeeded in pulling off the ruse when Chioda declared Swagger the winner. …

WWE Smackdown 5-17-13: “Extreme” Momentum

The show began with an edition of The Miz’s talk show “Miz TV”. The Miz’s two guests were Randy Orton and Big Show, who will go one-on-one in an Extreme Rules Match this Sunday at the Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View event. Eventually, Jack Swagger (accompanied by Zeb Colter), Alberto Del Rio (accompanied by his person ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez), Mark Henry, and Sheamus O’Shaunessy join the fray and then chaos ensues. Afterwards, the Senior Advisor to the Smackdown General Manager (WWE Hall of Famer Booker T) Teddy Long, who is running Smackdown while Booker T recovers from an elbow injury, decides to make a Six-Man Tag Team main event match for the evening between the team of Randy Orton, Sheamus, and Alberto Del Rio against the team of Big Show, Mark Henry, and Jack Swagger. Also, it was a family affair when The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) took on two members of The Shield (Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns, The Usos’ second cousin), who were accompanied by the leader of The Shield Dean Ambrose. Every guy in this match was a member of the famous Anoa’i Wrestling Family except for Rollins. In the end, it was The Shield who came out …

WWE Main Event 5-15-13: Sin Cara Returns

The Miz was back on commentary with Michael Cole on this week’s edition of Main Event. The first match of the night was between WWE Tag Team Champion and one-half of Team Hell No Kane against Shield member Seth Rollins (accompanied by fellow Shield cohorts Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns). In the end, Rollins was disqualified after The Shield began a 3-on-1 assault on Kane. Kane’s WWE Tag Team Championship partner and the other half of Team Hell No Daniel Bryan wasn’t at the arena this night, but fortunately, Roman Reigns’ second cousins The Usos came to Kane’s aid to fend off The Shield. Also, it was the returning Sin Cara who took on Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett in a non-title match; Sin Cara was able to pull off the upset and defeat Barrett. I think he should get an opportunity at Barrett’s championship because of this. Finally, in the main event, one-half of International Airstrike Justin Gabriel went one-on-one with one-half of Team Rhodes Scholars Cody Rhodes, who is The Miz’s opponent at the Extreme Rules Pre-Show this Sunday. The Miz got an up-close-and-personal look from the announcers’ table at Rhodes beating Gabriel. Is this what awaits Miz come …

WWE Raw 5-13-13: Triple H Is Ready for Extreme Rules

The show began with a dance-off between Chris Jericho and his dance partner, professional ballroom dancer and ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” ballroom dancer Edyta Sliwinska and Fandango and his his dance partner, Summer Rae. There was ballroom dancing hard-wood floor inside the wrestling ring for the dance-off. Fandango and Summer were up first and during their dance, it appeared that Summer had twisted her ankle. Both Edyta and Jericho showed concern; while doing so, Fandango took advantage and jumped Jericho from behind and brutally attacked him, even using a piece of the hard-wood floor to hit Jericho in the face with. Afterwards, it was revealed that Summer was not hurt at all and leaped to her feet; therefore, it was a trap all along and the dance-off ended in a no contest. Personally, I think it was ridiculous that Edyta was invited to WWE Raw for a dance-off to not dance at all. It was also revealed that Jericho and Fandango will be going one-on-one at this Sunday’s Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View event. Every match at Extreme Rules is supposed to be contested under extreme rules; I think the extreme rules stipulation for this match should be having the ballroom …

WWE Raw 5-13-13: Triple H and Brock Lesnar Come Face-To-Face

Tonight on Raw, WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H and Brock Lesnar will meet face-to-face inside the ring less than a week before their match at the upcoming Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View event. Also, Chris Jericho will face Fandango in a Dance-Off; Jericho has chosen professional ballroom dancer Edyta Sliwinska from ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars as his dance partner, while Fandango will have Summer Rae as his. Also, will WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn’s secret admirer finally reveal himself? Finally, what is the condition of World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler after suffering a concussion this past Friday on Smackdown? Tune into Raw tonight to find out.…

WWE Smackdown 5-10-13: Chris Jericho Wins, But Ryback Still Rules

The show began with an edition of Chris Jericho’s talk show The Highlight Reel. Jericho’s guest was Ryback and after things began to get heated between the two, the Senior Advisor to the Smackdown General Manager (WWE Hall of Famer Booker T) Teddy Long came out and announced that it would be Jericho vs. Ryback in the main event of the evening. Since Booker T didn’t appear to be on this edition of Smackdown, my guess is that Teddy Long was put in charge of the show for the evening. Also, NXT Champion Big E Langston (accompanied by World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler & AJ Lee) was supposed to go one-on-one with Jack Swagger (accompanied by Zeb Colter). However, Alberto Del Rio was ringside on commentary and before the match even officially started, Del Rio got up from the announcers’ table, went over to grab a ladder from underneath the ring, and then slid the ladder inside the ring. Chaos then ensued with everybody taking one another out with the ladder and in the end, it was Del Rio who stood tall atop the ladder holding the World Heavyweight Championship high. Could this be the scene that everybody sees come …

Sheamus O’Shaunnesy vs. Mark Henry In A Strap Match At WWE Extreme Rules

As reported on WWE.com, Sheamus will go one-on-one with Mark Henry in a strap match at the upcoming Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View event. In this match, the two men will be tethered by the wrist and the only way to win is by tagging all four corners of the ring in succession. After seeing these two in a tug-of-war contest last week on WWE Raw, I thought it would be a good idea for these two to face off in a match like this one at Extreme Rules. Apparently, WWE heard me loud and clear and decided to make the match happen. I just love it when WWE ends up doing my ideas. So, for those of you with ideas, let people know about it because the idea might just happen.…

WWE Raw 5-6-13: John Cena and Ryback Will Take A “Stand” At Extreme Rules

The show began with WWE Champion John Cena coming out to address the condition of his Achilles heel injury and whether or not he’ll be able to compete at the upcoming Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View event. Cena said that as long as he’s medically cleared, he’ll always step in the ring and fight. Then, Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero comes out and she then invites Ryback to come out as well. Vickie then asks both men what stipulation they want to have for their WWE Championship Match at Extreme Rules. Cena said that it didn’t matter to him and he allowed Ryback to choose the stipulation. The stipulation that Ryback chose was a Last Man Standing Match; therefore, at Extreme Rules, Cena will be defending his championship against Ryback in a Last Man Standing Match. Also, United States Champion Kofi Kingston and The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) took on The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, & Roman Reigns) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match. I would like to point out that The Usos are actually second cousins to Roman Reigns; therefore, it was two family members taking on another family member. As for the match, thanks to Reigns knocking Kingston off …

WWE Raw 5-6-13: What Will John Cena’s Condition Be?

Tonight on Raw, WWE Champion John Cena will address the condition of his Achilles heel injury; speculation has already begun as to whether or not Cena will forfeit his championship if he can’t defend it. Also, The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, & Roman Reigns) seem to have their sights set on Team Hell No’s (Kane & Daniel Bryan) WWE Tag Team Championship; what will The Shield’s next step be in their quest? Lastly, after being absent from Raw for the past couple of weeks, will WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H or Brock Lesnar be on Raw tonight? If so, what will these men do to gain momentum heading into their Steel Cage Match at the upcoming Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View event? Tune in tonight at 8/7 CT on USA Network.…

WWE Smackdown 5-3-13: The Shield Continues Its Crusade

I was in attendance for this week’s edition of Smackdown at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. There was one match that took place before Smackdown went on the air; it was between Bo Dallas and Curt Hawkins with Dallas coming out on top. Also, WWE Tag Team Champion and one-half of Team Hell No went one-on-one with Ryback with Ryback coming out on top. Also, before his match with Fandango (accompanied by Summer Rae), Zack Ryder informed the WWE Universe in a WWE Active video that he no longer refers to himself as a broski or refers to things as “Sssiiiccckkk” because he feels that those two things just aren’t working for him anymore. As for the match, despite seeing a more-than-ever aggressive Ryder, it was still not enough to put away Fandango. Also, WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn received another gift from her secret admirer. Then, The Great Khali attempted to educate her on the ways of love. As I said before, while I think it’s acceptable for her to be interested, she should also watch her back at the same time because you never know, it could all be a trap. Also, Ricardo Rodriguez (accompanied by Alberto Del …
