WWE Extreme Rules was not expected to be a great pay-per-view with a very deflated match card. But the show kicked off with an epic Tables match between Sanity and The New Day. WWE should learn a lesson to never put The New Day in a Kickoff show. And definitely, Not Sanity! Moving further, the matches saw a series of predictable results and twists. But the truly shocking moment came when The MONSTER AMONG MEN Braun Strowman threw Kevin Owens on the table from the top of the steel cage. EPIC! Ronda Rousey’s intrusion in Alexa Bliss match was good, though it was wasted by Mickie James. The WWE title fight between AJ Styles and Rusev was okayish. Nakamura vs Hardy total flop – Orton’s return – Mega flop. But the match of the night was the 30-minute Iron Man Match between Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins. That is one hell of a booking, and it kept the audience on the edge of the seat till the credits started rolling in.
