Sunday, May 4, 2014
From the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey
Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Josh Mathews welcomes us to the Izod Center as fans file in for WWE Extreme Rules. He then introduces the other panelists: Booker T, Alex Riley, and Sheamus. Booker T says it’s great to be in New Jersey. Riley says Booker was looking for Snooki earlier today. Sheamus asks the WWE Universe “Whats the craic?” and says he’s excited for the show to begin. Josh then brings up the “Wee-LC” match coming up on the Kickoff show.

Booker says El Torito will win the match because he can fly. Sheamus says he’s seen what Hornswoggle can do, and notes Hornswoggle’s weight advantage, so Hornswoggle will win.

Josh then brings up the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between Kane and Daniel Bryan. A Raw recap is shown, in which Kane attempts to drag Brie Bella to “Hell,” and Bryan makes the save, only to be chokeslammed.

Back at the panel, Josh says this match has become very personal. Booker T says the only way Bryan can survive tonight is if he leaves Brie at home tonight. Otherwise, Brie will be a distraction for him. Sheamus agrees, calling Brie his Achilles Heel. Riley brings up that Booker is married man, so he knows that no one messes with a man’s wife. Riley thinks Bryan will be motivated to get revenge tonight.

Los Matadores are shown backstage, with El Torito running through their capes. Hornswoggle is also shown playing air guitar with 3MB backstage.

A Raw recap of the segment between John Cena and Bray Wyatt airs. Cena’s promo from within the steel cage is interrupted by Bray and a choir of children.

Josh asks the panel how important this match is for Cena. Booker says tonight is when we see how much Bray’s mind games have gotten to Cena. Sheamus says Cena’s never taken on an opponent with the psyche of Bray. Riley says that more and more of the Cenation is following the buzzards, and the message keeps spreading. Booker says not to doubt Cena for one second.

Josh throws it to Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and JBL at ringside ahead of the Wee-LC match. The commentators note a smaller announce table set up in front of them, complete with a 3-man team of little people. Cole asks who they are, and they tell cole that they are Micro Cole, Jerry “The Mini-King” Lawler, and Wee-BL. Cole notes that Lilian Garcia looks different as a little person serves as the ring announcer.

El Torito comes to the ring first, accompanied by Los Matadores. Lawler wonders if this will be a short match. He then calls one of the commentators “Jerry Smaller” and tells him to keep it down. Hornswoggle comes out next, accompanied by 3MB.

Wee-LC Match

Torito hits a hurricanrana early, sending Hornswoggle out of the ring. 3MB goes over to Hornswoggle, but Torito hits all of them with a splash over the ropes. Hornswoggle gets in the ring and goes for a splash of his own, but runs into the middle rope. Los Matadores help Torito get a steel chair. Hornswoggle is reeling in the corner and Torito brings in the mini-sized chair. Torito hits a modified Bronco Buster as Jinder Mahal gets into the ring. Hornswoggle grabs Torito by the tail and chases him around. Torito runs head-first into Jinder’s groin, sending Jinder rolling out of the ring. Hornswoggle takes control and asks Slater for a stepladder. Slater hands him a slightly taller one and Hornswoggle goes to the top of it. Hornswoggle takes too long to jump and Torito rolls out of the way. Torito hits a small package for a two-count from the little person referee.

-Commercial

Back from commercial, 3MB is attacking Los Matadores outside the ring. Meanwhile, Hornswoggle tosses Torito back into the ring. Hornswoggle hits Torito with a chair. He then sets it up and jumps off of it onto Torito. Hornswoggle then puts the chair onto Torito and hits a “Rolling Blunder,” a somersault splash, onto Torito for a two-count. Hornswoggle rolls out of the ring and removes the monitors from the little announce table. He lays Torito onto the table and goes to the ring apron. Hornswoggle jumps off and elbow drops Torito through the table. “This is awesome” chants as 3MB checks on Hornswoggle. 3MB sets up a ladder in the ring as Hornswoggle throws Torito back in. Hornswoggle directs traffic, telling them where to put the table, ladder, and chair. Hornswoggle hits Torito with a chair and tells Slater to hold him up so he can hit him again. Hornswoggle goes to hit him and Torito ducks, causing Hornswoggle to hit Slater, who goes falling through a table. 3MB then sets Torito up on a ladder, but Los Matadores get involved, picking Jinder Mahal up on their shoulders. Torito jumps from the ladder in the ring onto Jinder, sending Torito, Jinder, and Los Matadores crashing through two ladders and tables set up outside the ring. Drew McIntyre goes for a somersault plancha outside the ring onto Torito but Torito moves, sending McIntyre crashing through a table. Back in the ring, Torito gets onto the apron, jumps onto the top rope, and hits a springboard seated senton onto Hornswoggle through a table to get the win.

Winner: El Torito

Los Matadores celebrate with El Torito as the regular announce team says they like this new announce team, and says they should stick around.

Backstage, Byron Saxton introduces Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger. Zeb insults Rob Van Dam and says Cesaro and Heyman are backstabbers, which are killing America. Zeb says Swagger is going to win the Triple Threat Elimination match tonight, and then they are going to hop into a car and get out of this city as soon as possible.

The show opens with a video package highlighting the recent feud between Evolution and The Shield, as well as Daniel Bryan vs. Kane. We also get a bit of a look at Wyatt vs. Cena, and some of the mind games Bray has been utilizing over the past couple of weeks.

The pyro hits, and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show. The intro is short-lived, as Rob Van Dam’s music hits, and he makes his way to the ring for the first match of the evening.

Jack Swagger is out next with Zeb Coalter in tow. Swagger doesn’t get much of a reaction out of the crowd at all, through there are still some ‘We the People’ chanters out there.

We get a quick look at the events leading to the match as a result various interferences in the Intercontinental Championship #1 Contender’s Tournament on Raw.

Paul Heyman is out next with a mic in hand. He says tonight’s event is a testament to the fact that he’s the greatest visionary in sports entertainment. He stands in his synagogue of hardcore to tell the fans that WWE only gets it right one night a year. And that’s the night that we as a tribe of extreme unite together to celebrate the fact that his client Brock Lesnar conquered the Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania. Heyman says the 11th commandment of extreme is ‘thou shalt not boo Paul Heyman’, asterisk, thou shalt worship the new Paul Heyman guy, and the new king of extreme, Cesaro. Cesaro stalks his way down the ramp toward the ring.

Triple Threat Elimination Match
Rob Van Dam vs. Cesaro vs. Jack Swagger

Cole mentions that the first man to get a pin will win, even though he billed it as an elimination match earlier. Things break down as soon as the bell rings with everyone going after everyone else. Swagger and Cesaro hit a double back elbow on Van Dam, then Swagger immediately hits Swagger with a series of uppercuts. Swagger is able to take Cesaro down with a spinebuster. Van Dam kicks Swagger in the face, then springboards off the middle rope with a single leg drop kick before hitting a monkey flip that launches Cesaro on top of Swagger. Van Dam continues with the kicks on Swagger, and ducks a clothesline from Cesaro. Van Dam goes for a cross body but Cesaro catches him. Swagger hits a big boot on Cesaro while he’s holding RVD and sends both men to the mat for a near fall on Cesaro.

Van Dam tosses the trash can to Cesaro and follows with a kick, driving the can into Cesaro’s face. Van Dam lays the trash can on top of Cesaro and goes for the Five Star Frog Splash, but Cesaro moves and Van Dam crashes into the trash can. Cesaro hits the neutralizer on top of the can, and he pins RVD for three.

Winner: Cesaro

Daniel Bryan is shown backstage being worked over by the trainer. Stephanie McMahon walks in. Bryan asks what she wants. She says as a member of the Authority, it’s up to her to check on the wellbeing of Superstars and Divas. She says she can’t control Kane. And Bryan was wearing a neckbrace a couple of days ago. Stephanie is afraid for Daniel, afraid for his wife, and afraid for his mother, watching him being torn limb from limb by Kane. And so he doesn’t have to compete tonight. He could officially surrender the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tonight. Bryan tells her to get out of his face. He’s walking into the match champion, and somehow he’ll walk out the same way. Stephanie says he won’t be walking out champion, he’ll be walking out ‘Kane’s bitch’. Stephanie leaves and Bryan mulls over her words.

We get a Bo Dallas promo really quickly.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Isn’t this supposed to be an elimination match or was that changed?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Did the announcers not know that it was an Elimination Match

  • Tim

    Seeing rvds weird pin attempt. I miss seeing the crucifix pin. Anyone else?

  • Gio

    Putin?

    • Gio

      Not surprised about what she said, butnow WWE just dropped the ball, why make him Russian

  • Tom Mayer

    Are most ppl in the premium chat? Ppv chat seems very dead

    • Gio

      I am also surprised, this chat is very dead

      • Tom Mayer

        I guess I fail to see the reason to pay for the privilege to talk to the community, it is a business model Richard should def reconsider, especially with the advent of the network.

      • kingdook24

        There’s a difference in chats?

        • Gio

          I don’t think so, but I what do I know, I don’t have premium

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We have the Live Blog, where the Writers and mods give their instant analysis. It’s something to reward the Premium members, and not in anyway to detract from you guys here! But it seems like you guys had a lot of fun out here too!

  • kingdook24

    I guess Big E’s push is officially over.

  • kingdook24

    Why do I get the feeling Extreme Rules seems to be built around Shield/Evolution over Daniel Bryan & the WWE WHC? Not that there’s anything good or bad about it…

    Just saying.

    • Tom Mayer

      I think it is because Bryan hasn’t been there, wedding and then his fathers passing and all

      • kingdook24

        I’m quite shocked Shield/Evo is the 4th match on the card. Paige/Tamina, Cena/Bray & DB/Kane are left. This is moving pretty quick.

  • BlackLotus

    looking at the card on the left of the page we are half way through it.

  • kingdook24

    Believe in the Shield…

  • AJ Harte

    Does anyone agree with my idea of John Cena restarting the nWo? Then he could be a “likeable heel” instead of a “hateable face”. Fans would get the heel turn they’ve wanted for so long and it would surprisingly bring back a very popular storyline from the recent past. If done right, maybe be a great move. Would love to hear opinions.

    • kingdook24

      I’d be up for a heel turn for Cena – I have been for a while. But the fact is Cena sells so much merchandise, does the Make-A-Wish appearances, etc. – he does so much as a face that benefit the company as a whole that they don’t want to turn him face.

      But there are many marketable heels in my opinion – HHH, Orton, Lesnar, Bray Wyatt, etc. But I don’t agree with Cena restarting the nWo. The nWo has been done so many times now. If anything, have Cena start his own NEW faction. Honestly, I would love the see Cena join the Wyatt Family… but that’s been done with Bryan already, and still pretty fresh.

  • kingdook24

    “You Can’t Wrestle” & “Boo-Tista” chants for Batista. Fans will never forgive Batista or booking for the Royal Rumble.

  • kingdook24

    Dean Ambrose is insane.
    Seth Rollins is energetic.
    Roman Reigns is a beast.

    Push these guys to the moon!!!

  • kingdook24

    OH MY GOD!!! SETH ROLLINS!!!! THAT WAS ECW AT ITS BEST!!!

  • Gio

    How many match of the year will the Shield have? Great Match!

  • kingdook24

    That match just single-handedly made up for Batista eliminating Reigns in the Royal Rumble. Best match of the night so far.

  • kingdook24

    Cena/Bray Wyatt time.

    I understand Wyatt ‘has’ to win this time, but me being a Cena guy at heart – I will be cheering for him to win. But I understand that Wyatt has to win this more than Cena does. Wyatt can’t afford to look weak in this match, otherwise this entire build for Bray has been for nothing. I mean, they’ve even put the fans booing Cena into the storyline. I expect a MAJOR swerve in this match.

    Something has to happen… Something.

  • kingdook24

    I don’t wanna fully commit to it yet, but I’d say it’s pretty darn close that…

    Bray Wyatt may be this generation’s Undertaker.

    Not yet, but very close.

  • kingdook24

    I really feel bad for Cena. Cena hasn’t done anything to deserve the type of reaction he gets from certain fans. I feel that certain fans just boo him for the sake of booing him because he’s been getting booed for so long. If the fans should be booing anyone, it’s booking & management for keeping him face for this long. Every superstar needs a change every now & then.

    HHH flips face/heel all the time. Orton has done it. Batista has. Daniel Bryan has. Lesnar. Punk. Undertaker. Kane. Foley. Flair. The Rock. Austin. Bret Hart. HBK. Hogan. I could go on…

    WWE just needs to do it, flip Cena heel & get it over with.

    • Unknown

      When and if Vince every lets Cena flip it will be at wresltemania

  • Scott

    WHOAAAAA!!! That was awesome!!!

  • kingdook24

    The swerve.

  • BlazeKing

    PPV has actually been kinda good!

  • kingdook24

    Was I hearing things or did Booker T just say he was happy to be here in this fine “country” of New Jersey?

    • BlazeKing

      He said “Wrestling Country” lol. It’s true though, NJ doesn’t like BS with it’s wrestling at all.

  • kingdook24

    Is it just me or is Tamina not getting any crowd reaction?

  • kingdook24

    The RAW when Stephanie announced Bryan would be facing Kane, when Kane tombstoned Bryan 3 times – that whole segment, from when Bryan first came out, Bryan looked like he was about to burst into tears. This dude is so humbled & didn’t even have to come to work that day with his father’s passing. My condolences to his family & I have a new found respect for Bryan. This whole storyline, he seems to be fueled with his father’s passing – I could be wrong but since then, Bryan has definitely seemed more darker.

  • BlazeKing

    The forklift ending from the Attitude Era!!!

    … Or not, lol.

  • BlazeKing

    JBL’s hilarious! “How does he even know how to drive a forklift?!”

  • kingdook24

    Seriously… why does WWE keep gasoline under a WWE ring?

    • a7beeny

      for post show BBQ maybe .. geez

  • kingdook24

    Clear matches of the night:
    Shield/Evo & DB/Kane

    Great follow-up PPV from Wrestlemania.

  • George

    Kane reminds me in this match why he’s my favorite. 47 years old and
    still willing to take the big bumps, bruises, falls and even light
    himself on fire to put people over. I have even more respect for him if that’s even possible

    • Craig

      The DDT on the chair he didn’t take the best tho he was no where near it lol but I agree with you

  • Craig

    I was really hoping Kane would win to give him 1 final run but it looks like this feud will continue to the ppv after payback with Kane winning somehow next month!!!

  • kingdook24

    We didn’t have alot of people on tonight. But to quote one of my favorite rappers:
    Less is more. There’s plenty of us.

    And I had fun tonight. Fun group of people. Fun event. If it’s anything like Wrestlemania or Extreme Rules, I’m truly excited for Payback.

  • Val Parfenoff

    why would they book wyatt to win like that?

  • Gary Robert

    and Tamina taps out INSTANTLY.

  • Christopher

    Extreme Rules was Awesome! There might be some details people might complain about, but it was so darn entertaining! I didnt know how to react to the possessed kid. I want to find it creepy but i find it hilarious. Any one else think its kind of corny?
