#2 Did right: Bayley retained the title

Bayley's title reign was in serious jeopardy at Extreme Rules as she was put in a Handicap Match. The Hugger had a mountain to climb against two credible opponents. While Alexa Bliss is a five-time Women's Champion, Nikki Cross is also a notable name. The Champion overcame the obstacles and managed to retain the SmackDown Women's Championship.

The SmackDown Women's Championship match was certainly a good match. Despite having good momentum, Nikki Cross was the one who got pinned. A long title reign is essential to rejuvenate the career of Bayley. After overcoming the odds at Extreme Rules, Bayley might get a long title reign

#1 Didn't do right: Brock Lesnar cashed-in the briefcase

And the new Universal Champion
And the new Universal Champion

The avid wrestling fans were certainly disappointed by the main event of Extreme Rules. While the Mixed Tag Team Match was the last match of the show, a major surprise took place after the bout. After Seth Rollins pinned Baron Corbin, Brock Lesnar's music hit. The Beast Incarnate cashed in the Money in the Bank contract at the Wells Fargo Center.

Seth Rollins tried to attack Brock Lesnar but the latter was cautious this time. After hitting two German Suplexes and one F-5, Lesnar became the new Universal Champion. Rollins' Universal Title reign lasted just 97 days. The Beastslayer was a fighting champion and he should have held the belt longer. It will be interesting to see if Rollins manages to burn down Suplex City at SummerSlam.
