WWE Extreme Rules (2015) Predictions

WWE likes to claim it goes Extreme “one night a year,” but we all really know that WWE Extreme Rules is one of about half-a-dozen gimmick Pay Per Views the company cycles through on an annual basis.

WrestleMania 31 Hangover

Well, internet wrestling fans: it turns out you can have your cake and eat it, too. For what was debatably one of the worst-built, under-hyped, and oddly booked WrestleManias in recent memory, WWE managed to take all of that negativity – every tweet, post, “like”, and jeer – and use it to fuel one of the best Pay-Per-Views in years.

John Cena Momentarily Gets Real

Watching Raw on Monday, as my wife said “we’ve seen this before, why don’t they do anything different?” several times throughout the broadcast, two things really stuck out to me.

The WWE is Thriving Creatively. Deal With It.

John Cena Red Shirt

Wrestling fans hate wrestling. No, really. Don’t believe me? Google any combination of “John Cena/Brock Lesnar/Night of Champions” and mark all the negative adjectives wrestling fans use.

John Cena Isn’t the Champion We Deserve, but He’s the Champion We Need

John Cena holds up the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

It’s a dangerous thing to support John Cena these days. Just look at Vince McMahon. People threaten his business, his family, even his life, simply because he sticks a gold strap on a faux-marine’s shoulder for a little extra cash.
