WWE Extreme Rules was a physical pay-per-view that, at times, was reminiscent of an ECW show. In this day and age of WWE TV-PG, that's hard to do.
The pay-per-view featured a crazy dive from the stands by Seth Rollins, as well as a flaming table during the climax of the Daniel Bryan-Kane match. WWE and its talent worked hard to establish this pay-per-view as an event unique from any other. This should continue to be a theme as WWE's future with major pay-per-view providers remains uncertain.
John Cena and Bray Wyatt had a good match but one that suffered from being overbooked. If the point of the steel cage was to keep the Wyatt Family out, why was their involvement such a big part of the match?
Evolution and Shield worked hard and wrestled above their middle-of-the-show slot. Nothing was going to outshine Rollins' climactic dive from the nosebleeds.
Kane and Daniel Bryan tore down the house in a main event that involved forklifts and flaming tables. They couldn't have had a better match, and the fact that their feud may continue is good news.
