WWE Extreme Rules Part 2/2

Nikki Bella vs. Naomi – WWE Divas Ttitle:

Absolutely nothing “Extreme” about this match which is disappointing because it was really a chance to get people to take it seriously. The only stipulation I can remember being added to a Divas match in the last decade is a lumberjack match. I don’t know what it is about Naomi because she’s a good wrestler, a really good athlete, very creative and very original, but I just cannot stand watching her and I don’t know why. Nikki Bella continues to improve but Brie is getting more vocal on the outside of the ring every week and she does have a very piercing and distracting voice. I haven’t read much news about Paige whether she’s injured or taking a break but I hope she comes back sooner rather than later so I don’t have to watch Naomi for much longer.

Big Show vs. Roman Reigns – Last Man Standing Match:

Neither of these are the best wrestlers in the world but both are big and strong and have very high impact finishers so a Last Man Standing match was actually quite perfect for them and the match was really good. Before the match started it was obvious that Reigns was going to win just with all the Lesnar stuff that has preceded it. At times it got a bit silly because both of them were down for much longer than a normal 10 count numerous times but it was the most ‘extreme’ match of the night with numerous tables going through, including the spanish announce table to finish the match, and just as many chairs and kendo sticks as the Ambrose and Harper match. There have been a lot of times in the last few years when I thought it was time for Big Show to retire but he looked a lot better than he has done for a long time and his fitness for a man of his size and age is unbelievable. I don’t think there was ever a doubt about the result because of the few months Reigns has had but it will be interesting to see where he goes from here because I’m guessing Orton will still be the main wrestler in the title picture for at least 1 more PPV.

Bo Dallas vs. Ryback:

A bit of a waste of time and probably a last minute job because of Daniel Bryan not being able to compete but a decent reason to get Ryback an appearance and easy win on a PPV. I would have thought a Miz/Sandow segment would have been chosen over this but either way I think it was just a time filler.

Seth Rollins vs. Randy Orton – Cage Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Title:

There wasn’t really anything special about this match if I’m being honest. I love both of them but a Steel Cage is the wrong setting to produce the best match between them. Considering they haven’t really been in many matches together I found it to be quite predictable. Neither of them produced anything particularly special to make it more entertaining. Considering the title was on the line and it was in a steel cage it wasn’t anywhere near as good as the match the two had at Wrestlemania. Kane and J&J were always going to interfere in some way or another and I do always like a cameo Kane appearance when he Chokeslams everyone. The ending was clever in a way with Seth using the RKO when it was banned. I’m guessing something will happen on RAW regarding them having to have a rematch because Seth broke the rules of the match. Overall quite a forgettable match but still the right feud to carry on.
