The Horror Show at Extreme Rules thoughts & ratings

Braun Strowman (c) vs. Bray Wyatt (Wyatt Swamp Fight)

This match really could’ve been something great but I felt like it was just ok. With other cinematic formats we saw true winners but this time it just wasn’t clear. The fiend popping out of the water at the end was a good touch. WWE really might’ve booked themselves into a corner for SummerSlam. If The Fiend goes over it’s gonna be a struggle to take the belt off him in a way that doesn’t diminish that character like it did against Goldberg earlier this year. If Braun wins the aura around the Fiend might be ruined that why. So it might play out as a lose/lose situation. Match Rating: 6/10

WWE Championship – Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler

Let me start off by saying this was a great match. Dolph chose the stipulation that it was a no dq for him but it was for Drew. It really made Drew look strong. He’s the best booked WWE champion in a very long time. The only problem I have with his reign so far is the one off matches. We need to see him in a feud spanning longer than 1 PPV. Match Rating: 8/10

Rey Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins (Eye for an Eye Match)

This match really surprised me. I thought we were going to see some type of inference but we didn’t. It was a straight up heavy hitting brawl and probably would’ve had my vote for match of the night if the finish were different. Seth really needed this win but Rey winning would have made sense storyline wise. It’s hard to see this feud continuing up until SummerSlam. Yes Seth Rollins did take Reys eye out so he has the right to be upset and continue the feud but, it was Rey who wanted this stipulation. In typical WWE fashion they may have backed themselves into a corner with no win for them in site. Match Rating: 8/10

Raw Women’s Championship – Asuka (c) vs. Sasha Banks

Another great match hindered by a terrible finish. As we all know Professional Wrestling is scripted and its understandable that somethings wont make sense all the time but this finish was an atrocity. It insults the intelligence of the viewer by having Bayley put on the ref shirt and counting the pinfall

SmackDown Women’s Championship – Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross

I don’t really have any solid complaints about this match. It wasn’t bad but I didn’t feel invested. Match rating:6.5/10

Smackdown Tag Team Championship- New Day (C) Vs Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro (Tables Match)

I can’t believe Nakamura & Cesaro really won. I hope they have a long reign with the belts. 2 of the best wrestlers in the world defending against anyone and everyone! Match Rating:9/10
