With WrestleMania XXIX firmly in the rear-view mirror, the WWE is now focused on building up a multitude of different stars for the upcoming summer season. Scoring a big victory at Extreme Rules is a great way to start.
While the card is only halfway complete, it is fairly obvious which matches will be added if they haven't been announced already. Some bouts such as Mark Henry vs. Sheamus or a potential Randy Orton vs. Big Show match could go either way without consequence, but other tilts will feature one Superstar who clearly needs to win in a bad way.
Perhaps winning isn't everything in professional wrestling, but there comes a point when Superstars have to win and look strong in order to get over properly with the fans. The WWE has the potential for a highly entertaining summer provided the creative team books Extreme Rules logically.
That isn't always the case, but with CM Punk out for the time being and part-time guys such as Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker and The Rock not as prevalent, smart booking will be of the utmost importance moving forward.
Here are five Superstars who desperately need to come away with a victory at Extreme Rules and ultimately will.
