Most of Extreme Rules felt like it was filler to me and served no real purpose other than to continue feuds for the sake of not planning something else.
This match between Brock Lesnar and Triple H fit that bill entirely. As it didn't entertain me anywhere near what it was supposed to do, the entire point of the match has to be boiled down to simply having Brock Lesnar get his victory back.
Lesnar did walk away with the win, making his return to WWE an even 2-2 score. This was a necessity that I pointed out in a previous article I wrote and I would give them an A grade for going through with the right winner.
In terms of his performance itself, though, Lesnar has been much more exciting in his other matches to me. I was disappointed that for the majority of the match, it seemed like Lesnar was just going through the motions.
It's important to remember that many of these men who I've given low scores to were burdened by factors outside of their control. When you're given what I consider to be bad booking and match stipulations that hinder your success, the mountains you must climb are that much higher.
For those that enjoyed this pay-per-view, I'm curious to hear which people you felt helped make it a success. For those that agree with me and did not enjoy it, I'd like to know if you place any blame on people that I didn't touch upon.
