The first pay-per-view after WrestleMania is an opportunity for the creative department to spark new feuds or to continue old rivalries.
There will be a series of different hardcore matches, which, in some cases, will serve to intensify the personal vendetta between the two wrestlers.
This is a perfect forum for CM Punk and Randy Orton or Cody Rhodes and Rey Mysterio to serve up WrestleMania rematches, for example.
But there are many unanswered questions surrounding Extreme Rules 2011. Will Triple H wrestle at the anniversary of his last injury? Will the Undertaker make a return? Will the Rock show his face?
Who will face The Miz for the WWE Championship and what will be the fate of the World Heavyweight Championship?
This is my attempt to predict and preview what will happen at Extreme Rules 2011!
