'The Ravishing Russian' Lana is introduced, and she makes her way out to speak a little bit of Russian, dedicate tonight to the 'most powerful man in the world', Russian president Vladamir Putin, and introduce Alexander Rusev.

Handicap Match
Alexander Rusev vs. R-Truth and Xavier Woods

Truth dedicates this match to the US and the two men hit the ring. Woods runs right into a huge kick and both are sent to the outside. Rusev launches Truth into the barricade, then sends Woods crashing into the ring apron. Rusev tosses Truth into the ring and belly to belly suplexes Woods on the floor. The ref finally rings the bell and Rusev goes on the attack, punching and kicking Truth in the corner.

Rusev sends Truth crashing into the corner hard, then follows with a big back splash. Rusev looks down on Woods, still laid out on the outside. Rusev runs right into double boots from Truth in the corner. Truth is able to cartwheel away from Rusev and hits a big spinning kick, and running clothesline in the corner. Truth connects with a missile dropkick from the middle rope, ducks a clothesline, and hits a spinning back elbow and axe kick, but Rusev won't stay down for three. Rusev catches Truth in mid air, and goes for a fall away slam, but Truth lands on his feet. Rusev knocks him down with a huge spinning back heel kick. Trainers check on Woods on the outside. Rusev takes Truth down with a spinning, standing black hole-like slam. Rusev clamps on the camel clutch, and Truth is forced to tap out.

Winner: Alexander Rusev

While making their way to the back, Lana points at Woods and tells Rusev to crush him. Rusev picks up Woods and plants him with a fall away slam on the floor before leaping up and screaming out.

Commercial break

In the ring, Lillian Garcia talks about the Special Olympics USA Games, which will be held in New Jersey. Lillian introduces members of the New Jersey Special Olympic team, who get a bit of camera time.

Backstage, Renee Young stands with Evolution. Young says tonight they'll finally get in the ring with The Shield. Hunter says they think Evolution's egos will be their downfall. Hunter says they have massive egos, but they're well deserved, because you're looking at 31 World Championships between these three men. Batista is the most powerful, destructive man to walk into a WWE ring. Then there's Randy Orton, the most naturally gifted athlete to ever walk into the squared circle. And tonight you'll find out why they call him the cerebral assassin. They have egos, but they're well deserved. Orton says you have to adapt or perish, and tonight, the Shield will perish, and you can believe in that. All three men put their fists in the middle to mock the Shield further.

Wade Barrett is out next for his Intercontinental Championship match, earned in the #1 Contenders tournament.

Barrett says he's afraid he's got some bad news. A big virus just made landfall in the US, and everyone here will be struck down with sickness, but that will pale in comparison to the sickness Big E will feel when he's defeated for his Intercontinental Championship.

Big E is out next, and he gets less of a reaction out of the fans than Barrett did.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match
Big E vs. Bad News Barrett

The bell rings and we're ready to begin. Big E tries for a slam, but Barrett lands on his feet, so Big E hits a shoulder tackle that sends Barrett fleeing to the outside. Big E follows, and Barrett scores with a couple of quick shots. Barrett tries to send E into the ring post, but E blocks it and sends Barrett into the ring post instead. Big E spears Barrett against the ring post and brings things back into the ring. Barrett kicks the rope into Big E low, then kicks him to the floor before dropping an elbow from the apron. Barrett brings things back into the ring for two, then mounts Big E with a series of punches.

Barrett goes for a suplex, but Big E blocks and reverses it. Big E runs into a back elbow from Barrett. Barrett sits on the top rope, and grabs Big E in suplex position. He drops down to the mat and uses the momentum to suplex Big E. Barrett clamps on a rear chin lock. It's not long before Big E fights out, but he runs right into a big cross body for two. Barrett kicks Big E in the chest, then lays him out with a running big boot. Barrett continues to kick and swat at Big E before choking him against the middle rope.

Barrett traps E in the ropes and lays in with knees to the chest before hitting another running big boot that knocks Big E to the apron. Barrett lays Big E out across the top rope and hits some clubbing blows to the back before gloating a bit. Big E responds by hitting a huge belly to belly suplex that sends Barrett across the ring.

Big E hits a clothesline, then another, and another belly to belly suplex. Big E hits a spear in the corner, and a running splash that sends Barrett to the outside. Fans are booing Big E. Big E tries to suplex Barrett from the apron into the ring, but Barrett fights it off. Big E hits the ropes and spears Barrett through the ropes, both men falling to the floor.

Big E sends things back into the ring for a near fall. Big E hits the ropes, but runs right into winds of change, but Barrett can only come up with two. Barrett stomps at Big E's head, then picks him up to his feet. Big E sends Barrett into the corner, but misses another attempt at a spear. Barrett hits the wasteland, but Big E still won't stay down for three.

Barrett pulls down his elbow pad and charges, but Big E counters with a urunage for two. Big E hits his splash, and pulls down the straps. Big E waits for Barrett to stand, and he shoulders him. Barrett drops down, misses the elbow, but connects with a second attempt. Barrett pins Big E, and gets the three count.

  • 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


    • 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


  • 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?
