My Extreme Rules Review is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/wwe-extreme-rules-2013-results-and.html
Wade Barrett and Fandango vs The Miz and Chris Jericho
Sheamus vs Titus O'Neil
Titus challenged Sheamus last night.
|"You think he's tough? You think he's f***ing tough?" - Titus O'Neil|
On the app, Truth tried to get people to vote for him.
Curtis Axel is the newest Paul Heyman guy. Who is Curtis Axel? Curtis Axel is Michael Mcgillicutty. His theme is a mix of Mr. Perfect's song.
|"I have arrived." - Curtis Axel|
Triple H came out.
So, Curtis Axel is Michael McGillicutty. Curtis Axel has actually been really good lately. He had a good match on Superstars weeks ago and is an Arn Anderson-like wrestler who is a loudmouth in the ring and constantly shouts stuff. He had a great match with Ted Dibiase on Supersatrs from 5/11/2013, which I reviewed here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/wwe-superstars-5112013-results-and_11.html
They aired a Zeb Coulter promo on the WWE app. He claimed there was a conspiracy with the restart last night.
Big E Langston vs Alberto Del Rio
This got started because Big E talked crap to Alberto Del Rio last night in the post show. See here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/wwe-extreme-rules-2013-results-and.html
They announced Triple H vs Curtis Axel for tonight and The Shield vs Kofi Kingston and Team Hell No. I somehow picked this correctly in my preview!
|Curtis Axel vs Triple H|
On the WWE app, The Great Khali said he wants to win tonight for America, even though he's not American. He also said if he is picked, he will reveal one more clue about Kaitlyn's secret admirer.
They announced American Ninja Warrior from Mt. Midoriyama in Japan during a commercial. Yeah, this isn't wrestling, but it is a cool show.
AJ Lee vs Layla
|New CGI for names|
The Bella twins mocked both girls looks on the WWE app.
Zack Ryder vs Cody Rhodes
The Shield talked about how we should believe in them and talked about their accomplishments.
The Shield vs Team Hell No and Kofi Kingston
|"Come on, little weak link. What do you have left in you?" - Dean Ambrose|
They opened up voting on the WWE app for Swagger's opponent. I chose Khali. I don't know why. I just wanted to hear the next clue to Kaitlyn's secret admirer and see a Zeb/Hornswoggle fight.
On the app, Khali said that Road Dogg is not the secret admirer.
Randy Orton vs Jack Swagger
Triple H vs Curtis Axel
This is the debut of Curtis Axel. However, he wrestled under his old name, Michael McGillcutty, for years.
Did Triple H get hurt? No, it wasn't real. Anything that airs on TV isn't legit.
On the WWE app, Triple H was still collapsed. He got water and said he was dizzy. Triple H said he wrestled Michael McGillicutty and the trainer said, "he changed his name, he has a new name". LOL. Triple H was then walked to the back with the trainer and the crowd cheered him.
Overall thoughts: I thought it was a pretty good show but I didn't like the Triple H/Curtis Axel segment as Axel looked like a goof getting slapped around. I loved The Shield's match and Swagger/Orton was surprisingly good. Bad ending though.
