WWE Extreme Rules 2010 Rapid Recap
WWE Extreme Rules
1st Mariner Arena
April 25, 2010
1. Big Show and The Miz def. John Morrison and R-Truth by DQ in a nontitle gauntlet.
2. ShowMiz def. Mark Henry and MVP by countout.
3. Hart Dynasty def. ShowMiz in a nontitle gauntlet. Yeah, not like the titles should be on the line on a PPV or anything.
4. CM Punk (w/ Straight Edge Society) def. Rey Mysterio via interference of an unknown. Hmm...Joey Mercury?
5. JTG def. Shad Gaspard in a Strap match. Who cares?
6. Jack Swagger def. Randy Orton in an Extreme Rules match to retain the World Heavyweight Title. CLEAN win for the All-American American in this entertaining match. Credibility has been restored.
7. Sheamus def. Triple H in a Street Fight. Sheamus attacked Hunter at the start of the show. Triple H sold well. As Triple H was getting helped to the back, Sheamus knocked him out with a kick to the head. Hunter left on a stretcher. The Celtic Warrior looked strong here.
8. Beth Phoenix def. Michelle McNOTCool (w/ Vickie Guerrero and Layla) in an Extreme Makeover match to win the WWE Women's Title,. Good for Beth. Too bad I could not care less about this feud.
9. Edge def. Chris Jericho in a phenomenal steel cage match. Excellent contest that showcased wrestling psychology at its best without taking unnecessary risks like the Angle vs Anderson match at TNA Lockdown the Sunday before.
10. John Cena def. Batista in a Last Man Standing match via duct taping The Animal's feet together. Seriously.
