So naturally, you can expect that same fantastic buzz to be generated by the wonderful Chicago audience and history to be made once again in Extreme Rules 2012, which is another absolutely essential pay-per-view offering from WWE that we've been blessed with in recent times.
Like Money in the Bank 2011, there was an unmissable angle going into the show. And what could be more unmissable than BROCK LESNAR? Returning to the very company that made him a huge star and a truckload of cash after EIGHT YEARS AWAY, Lesnar once again took the wrestling world by storm the night after WrestleMania. His target this time? JOHN CENA, his old Doctor of Thuganomics rival from the glory days of SmackDown, who was defeated by Lesnar way back at Backlash 2003.
Of course, much had changed since then, with Cena having become the face of WWE while Lesnar wrestled elsewhere before ultimately conquering UFC as an MMA fighter. So the match-up this time was bound to be off-the-charts, right? ALL THAT AND MORE! As for the rest of the show...well, there's plenty of excellent stuff to sink your teeth into!
Falls Count Anywhere Match
Randy Orton vs. Kane
This feud could've been absolutely terrible (like Kane's rivalries with Cena & Edge), and instead it turned out rather decent. It's been the same with the matches, with this falls-count-anywhere bout in particular being a great brawl. Orton and Kane battle out all over the arena in this splendid entertainment.Read more ›
Extreme Rules 2012 was one of the best pay-per-views of 2012 with Chicago's own CM Punk defending the WWE Championship in a Chicago Street Fight against Chris Jericho. CM Punk had the best run in WWE and the Chicago Street Fight was one of his best title defences along with the roar of the crowd and the extremity of weapons involved.
Going into Extreme Rules we had a few good rivalries to invest in. Randy Orton seeking vengeance on Kane, Daniel Bryan looking for redemption after being beaten in eighteen seconds at Wrestlemania by Sheamus, CM Punk fighting on behalf of his family, friends and his pride, and Brock Lesnar set to destroy the poster boy of WWE, John Cena.
FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE
Randy Orton VS Kane
An all out ruckus which spills all all over the arena. Considering WWE maintains a PG rating, these two really pull out all the stops to make this match something to behold. A solid opening match with a nice ending 9/10
Brodus Clay VS Dolph Ziggler
WWE were really trying their hardest to spotlight "The Funkasaurus" Brodus Clay. Personally I think Brodus is slow and limited but Dolph Ziggler saved this one and made it viewable. Luckily for us it was short and sweet 4/10
Big Show VS Cody Rhodes
I thought this match was really enjoyable. Cody Rhodes was looking to retain Intercontinental gold after being taken down by Big Show at Wrestlemania which was Big Shows only win at this event. A controversial ending to the match and Big Show really lost control of his temper. 7/10
2/3 FALLS MATCH
Sheamus VS Daniel Bryan
Daniel Bryan was looking to save face after an embarrassing 18 second loss to Sheamus at Wrestlemania and bring home the World Heavyweight title. Object of this match being best of three pitfalls, submissions etc. A pure wrestling match here which is pretty rare in WWE these days. I really enjoyed this and the Chicago crowd seemed to agree with my opinion. Lots of back and forth.Read more ›
I had a good feeling about this event and wasn't disappointed.
To start off we have RANDY ORTON taking on KANE in a FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE match. It's a great start to the show and continues their feud well,with a nice time given and some good action taking place all over the arena,i really got into this one.
BRODUS CLAY vs DOLPH ZIGGLER is about the best match BRODUS has had to this point and it's fun enough for what it is,which isn't much and it doesn't last long.
BIGSHOW vs CODY RHODES in a TABLES match for the i.c. title. This is disappointing short and is very much a match asking if CODY can overcome the odds and put BIGSHOW through a table. It has an interesting end,so it's not so bad.
SHEAMUS vs DANIEL BRYAN in A 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS match for the world heavyweight title. It's a good one,nice solid wrestling,they work together well and it makes up for their wrestlemania flop.
RYBACK vs 2 nobodies,it's a filler,just showing RYBACK's strength.
C.M. PUNK vs CHRIS JERICHO (STREET FIGHT) for the wwe title. Wow,this is another fine showing with these 2 talents,great brutal action for what is usually quite a safe family friendly company now. I loved this match,top stuff!
MYSTERY DIVA vs NIKKI BELLA for the diva's title. BETH PHOENIX couldn't wrestle,by doctor's orders,so the match went to a comeback diva,not many people cared.
JOHN CENA vs BROCK LESNAR in an EXTREME RULES match. LESNAR stated he was out to destroy CENA,boy did he try! Blood from the opening seconds and brutal action made this event well worth watching,just to see proof the wwe can still do this when they put their mind to it.Read more ›
