Only three weeks removed from Extreme Rules, and the next WWE PPV is upon us. Is it just me or having a PPV just three weeks after the previous one always seem a bit like overkill?
Extreme Rules was a really solid PPV last month, every match was a good contest and the only thing which let it down was some horrible booking. It was a relatively Extreme night by WWE standards, but it did fail to impress me as much as the 2010 iteration of the event did.
Overall I give the Extreme Rules 2011 PPV a 7.5/10 rating.
Now, speaking of ratings,I have to bring up last years Over The Limit. To me Over The Limit 2010 was one of the worst PPV's WWE have ever produced.
The match quality was sub par, the booking was absolutely atrocious (how can you have babyfaces go over in every match?), CM Punk was shaved bald in what was the biggest burial of 2010 and, generally, I came out of that PPV wondering why I am a fan of wrestling.
It totally deserved the 4/10 rating I installed upon it.
However, is this a good thing heading into this year's event? For me it probably is because my expectations are so low based on last year that it is very unlikely I'll be disappointed.
The card certainly looks stronger than last years, and for once WWE have made eight matches for a PPV in advance, so hopefully we'll have no shabby last minute matches made at the event. To me, adding matches during a PPV is the ultimate sign that the creative team are not firing on all cylinders.
Anyway, on to the predictions:
