WWE Extreme Rules 2011: Why WrestleMania Is Lackluster Compared to Extreme Rules

0 of 7

    I'm more excited by Extreme Rules than WrestleMania 27.

    Even with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Trish Stratus, the Rock and hell, even Snooki.

    I can't feel WWE WrestleMania 27 can be better than WWE Extreme Rules—Extreme Rules has a great card and completely shows the future of WWE. 

    Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, John Morrison and Alberto Del Rio are all in high profile matches, but none of these WWE Superstars captivate me like Captain Charisma, Christian. 

    I'm so pumped for Christian to have a main event match on a pay-per-view.

    I was so excited on the day of the Royal Wedding, all I thought about was Christian at Extreme Rules—the last time I've been this pumped was a long time ago.

    Even with The Rock's return, I would rather have Christian a main-eventer than Rock to return full time; that's dedication. How many of you guys would give up the Rock for Christian?

    Well, enough of my love affair with Christian—I will show you why WrestleMania is lackluster compared to WWE Extreme Rules 2011.

Layla vs. Michelle McCool

1 of 7

    Finally, a WWE Diva match which has been built up properly—not a ten minute segment on RAW which leads to a WWE Divas title match.

    Like it or not, LayCool have provided us with the better Diva matches of the past months and I, for one, will be saddened by the break-up because we can only look forward to Brie Bella putting a clinic on Eve.

    Well, at least we can look forward to Kharma/Awesome Kong.

    This Diva match will be a whole lot better to the Snooki fest we saw at WrestleMania—a match which included the main WWE Diva being pinned by Snooki. Well, at least it's a change—we would usually see Snooki being pinned on the...

Cody Rhodes vs. Rey Mysterio

2 of 7

    Once dashing, now forever ugly—as Cody sees himself.

    This matchup is my second anticipated match of the night. I'm really hyped for Rhodes getting a chance and it's all down to Rey. Had he not picked Rhodes as his partner to feud with over the month, we might have seen Rhodes been Intercontinental champion, but a feud with Rey is above and beyond the Intercontinental championship belt.

    This match has been the second best built up in my book but, sadly, Rey was drafted to RAW so I guess we won't see a mask vs. mask match as it would have been thoroughly entertaining.   

Jim Ross and Jerry 'The King' Lawler vs. 'Sir' Micheal Cole and Jack Swagger

3 of 7

    We were all bemused that the WrestleMania match wasn't the end of the then already dry feud.

    The only reason I'm remotely interested is that Jack Swagger has a match that is on pay-per-view.

    Jim Ross shouldn't be wrestling and has stated himself he shouldn't had been included in such a match.

    Let's just hope this Cole gets his ass 'whooped' by the original RAW commentators. 

Randy Orton vs. CM Punk

4 of 7

    I feel this whole feud has not fulfilled its hype—I thought this would have been a great feud. I was so certain, that this should have been kept until one of the two had a belt to fight for.

    Well, this feud has barely gotten me over. The match at WrestleMania was decent, but I just felt it could have been better. I know at Extreme Rules it will be better—last-man-standing matches are always epic and we all know the failed Nexus revival will gang up on Orton.

    Is may just be me, but if anyone else feels these two didn't live up to the hype, make a comment.   

John Cena vs. the Miz vs. John Morrison

5 of 7

    This match will be a great one. I wasn't a fan of the Miz/Cena feud and not many of you are fans of the match at WrestleMania. 

    Hopefully, John Morrison will add a new dimension called "excitement."

    I have no doubt John Cena can perform in great matches, but I have yet to see Miz in a show-stealing match. Until I do, he isn't going to be viewed as a legit world champion and main-eventer.

    Perhaps this match will be a show-stealer? Well, this match will be much better than the WrestleMania counterpart.

    Who else agrees with me on the Miz matches?  

Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio

6 of 7

    Expect nothing short of epic.

    This match will be, in my opinion, and many other Bleacher-holics, the match that steals the show.

    For anyone who isn't ordering the pay-per-view or anyone buying the pay-per-view not to see these guys are completely mad.

    This match has been built from September—when was the last time WWE did such a build in a feud?

    Well, to be correct, Christian was injured—technically, WWE wasn't planning for such feud but that injury turned out to be the best thing in Christian's singles career. He is main-eventing a WWE match.

    I really hope WWE gets their heads screwed on straight and let Christian have a chance at main-eventing and I'm not being funny. But has anyone considered The Rock being involved in influencing this match?

    When he was an active performer, he tried quite hard to get WWE higher-ups to push him. So possibly he might have used his leverage in a push for him?

    Edge most likely must have told creative to push him.

    I for one will be paying my good money to watch this pay-per-view because of Christian and this match will be surely more intriguing as the Wrestlemania match even though that was a good match.
