WWE Extreme Rules 2016 Review

It's time to spice up our monthly dose of WWE PPVs, and what better way to do so than to add a little "extreme" to our wrestling?

WWE Extreme Rules turns things around by upping the violence and the potential for "OMG!!" moments, adding dangerous stipulations to heated rivalries. After last month's Payback kicked this "New Era" into full gear, expectations are high tonight for the WWE to take another step forward.

Will the following card deliver?

WWE Network Kickoff Show:

-Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin in a No Disqualification Match

Main Card:

-The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso) vs. The Club (Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows) in a Tornado Tag Team Match

-Kalisto (c) vs. Rusev in a Singles match for the WWE United States Championship

-Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho in an Asylum Match

-Charlotte (c) vs. Natalya in a Submission Match for the WWE Women's Championship

-The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston and/or Xavier Woods) (c) vs. The Vaudevillains (Aiden English and Simon Gotch) in a Tag Team Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship

-The Miz (c) vs. Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn in a Fatal 4-Way Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship

-Roman Reigns (c) vs. AJ Styles in an Extreme Rules Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Will Roman Reigns be able to defeat the Phenomenal One again to retain his title in what will most likely be a brutal Extreme Rules Match? What can we expect from the first ever Asylum Match between Chris Jericho and Dean Ambrose? Which submission maneuver will prove to be victorious: the Sharpshooter or the Figure Eight? Will the Intercontinental Title change hands when The Miz defends his title against Cesaro, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens? All these questions answered... NOW!


Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin - No Disqualification Match

It's nice to see Dolph rocking some HBK-inspired ring gear! Boring match between the two, nothing we haven't seen from them before. Ziggler with some quick offense but to no avail as Corbin uses his strength to his advantage.

Ziggler hits a Fameasser, then goes for a superkick that is reversed into an uppercut to his gonads. The End of Days ends an unspectacular affair with the result we should've had last month.

Match Rating: 4/10

Winner: Baron Corbin
