Going into this year’s WWE Extreme Rules event, very few people were actually anticipating the pre-show's WeeLC matchup between Hornswoggle and El Torito. The feud between the two was pure comedy, and both of their prior matches failed to entertain.
However, Torito and Hornswoggle did the impossible at Extreme Rules by having one of the better matches of the night—and it wasn’t even on the actual card.
With mini tables, ladders and chairs surrounding the ring, the two competitors went all out and put on a highly entertaining contest that exceeded expectations.
The pay-per-view pre-shows are hardly ever looked at as must-see. That being said, there have been a handful of instances in the past where the match that took place on the Kickoff show ended up being better than any one originally thought it would be.
Criteria for matches and rankings on the list include the match’s buildup, in-ring action, significance, lasting impact and overall entertainment value.
