WWE Extreme Rules 5/22/16

Tonight, WWE goes Extreme.  AJ Styles faces Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, in an Extreme Rules match.  Will The Club interfere?

Kick-off show starts in 15 minutes, so keep checking here throughout the night.

We are live in Newark, New Jersey.  Renee Young welcomes us to the Extreme Rules Kick-Off show.  She is joined by Booker T, Corey Graves, and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Many matches, with different stipulations tonight.  They each give their matches they are looking the most froward to.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge tonight.  Tom’s guest tonight is Rusev and Lana.

Tonight, first ever Asylum Match, with Dean Ambrose Vs Chris Jericho.

The Women’s Championship is on the line, in a Submission Match with Charlotte Vs Natalya.  Video preview is now.

Paige and Becky Lynch are out to share their views on the big woman’s match, later tonight.

Tonight, on the Kick-Off show, Baron Corbin Vs Dolph Ziggler in a No-DQ match.

Here come The Dudley Boyz.

Mauro Ranallo and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

What would Extreme Rules PPV be without The Dudley Boyz, asks Devon?

Bubba informs us he and his brother have been in more Extreme Rules matches than the entire WWE locker room combined.

Bubba asks if we remember a little company named ECW?

We get an ECW chant going.

And Devon reminds us we can watch it on WWE Network.

Bubba tells us that we need to stop acting like sheep, because when they left ECW, the company went straight into the toilet, which is where the “new era” wrestlers young careers are going.

Devon tells us they are beneath Extreme Rules.  Bubba has something to ask he has been wanting to ask, Devon, can we please get out of New Jersey?

Here comes Big Cass.

The crowd asks how he’s doing.

Cass knows why Bubba didn’t tell Devon to get the tables, because everything at the table, they have already eaten.

This was very funny here, Chicken, how ya doing?  Steak, how ya doing?

But also too, the new era is better than anything the Dudleys had done in a bingo hall, because they get to showcase what they are doing in a million different homes.

And you can’t teach that.

The Dudleys attack Cass, but Big Cass gets the boot in, and calls them both S.A.W.F.T.

Rusev and Lana are next.

Jo-Jo is with The Miz and Maryse.

The Miz gives us a monologue, from “Miracle” starring Kurt Russell, from 2004.

This is Miz’s time, so go out there, and take it.

Powerful performance.

Tonight, Fatal 4-Way match for the IC Title.  The Miz Vs Cesaro Vs Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens.

Rusev Vs Kalisto for United States Title, later tonight, at Extreme Rules.

Rusev and Lana are with Tom Phillips.

Rusev and Lana are bored with these stoopid questions by the stoopid Americans.

AJ Styles Vs Roman Reigns for the WWE World Title video is now.

Our Kick-Off match is now, Baron Corbin Vs Dolph Ziggler, in a No-DQ match.

Corbin wins the match with a low blow, and End of Days, and pinning Ziggler.

Michael Cole and JBL make their way to ringside, Extreme Rules is now.

We are live, in Newark, New Jersey.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

The Usos Vs The Club kicks the show off.

Gallows and Anderson win with Magic Killer, pinning Jey Uso.

The Usos are being helped to the back.

How does this effect tonight’s main event?

United States Championship match is up now.  Kalisto Vs Rusev.

Rusev wins the United States Championship, making Kalisto tap out to the Accolade.  Doctors check on Kalisto after the match, because he gave Kalisto a back breaker on the corner of mat.

Rusev beating United States Champion, puts the importance on the title again.

I love it.

Sheamus is in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie, coming out on June 3rd.



New Day Vs Vaudevillains is up.

The Vaudevillains destroyed Xavier’s time machine.

The New Day takes care of The Vaudevillains, when Big E took care of Aiden English, with a flying unicorn.  Kofi hits Gotch with Trouble in Paradise, and Xavier lands a Shining Wizard to win.

Renee Young is with AJ Styles.  AJ makes this clear, he will walk out tonight as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and he will continue to be phenomenal.

AJ walks into a dressing room door that says The Club.

Fatal 4-Way for the Intercontinental Championship is now.  The Miz Vs Cesaro Vs Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens.

The Miz picks up the win, when Sami hits a Hella Kick on Cesaro, but goes after Owens.  Incredible match with all four men.

The Extreme Rules Kick-Off panel join us for the show now.  Earlier tonight, Baron Corbin made a statement, beating Dolph Ziggler.

The Asylum Match is up now, Jericho Vs Ambrose.

A bit of everything here, some that was good.  Others that was not.  The middle of the match seemed to go on forever.  But Jericho nailed Ambrose three times with the barbed wire bat.  But earlier in the match, Ambrose threw down some thumbtacks, and slammed Jericho into them, and pinned him with Dirty Deeds.

Jericho bumped like crazy for Dean, which is fabulous.

Women’s Championship is on the line in a Submission Match.  Charlotte Vs Natalya, with Ric Flair banned from ringside.

Such a disappointing ending here.  Charlotte wins, when Ric Flair’s music plays, and we see a person wearing a Ric Flair robe, revealed to be Dana Brooke.

Natalya has her back to Charlotte, and Flair’s little girl hits a Figure Eight to make Natalya tap out.

WWE World Title match, our main event.  AJ Styles Vs Roman Reigns is now.

No heel turn here, but an incredible match.  Everyone was out there, but AJ lost his cool, nailed Reigns and his family with chair shots multiple times.  Styles missed a Phenomenal Forearm, and Reigns nails a spear, pins AJ for the 1…2…3.

When Reigns can celebrate, here comes Seth Rollins, kicks Reigns, and nails a Pedigree, to close the show, and reminds us he never was pinned.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Overall, a fun show tonight.  I hated some of the finishes, but every man and woman worked hard.

I just don’t think they treated The Club very well.  It seems like they treated them like jobbers, especially at the end.  While I love Seth Rollins returning, they treated The Club like they were nothing, and we remember the impact they had when they first debuted 5 weeks ago.

In order to help them, I do think it needs to be Rollins who recruits them, and they must help Seth become new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send me a line.  I won’t be able to watch Raw, until Tuesday.  My Cavs are playing tomorrow night, and I won’t be able to catch Raw until Tuesday.  I will talk to you then.
