5 surprising moments from Extreme Rules 2019
It is Brock Lesnar… again.
WWE Extreme Rules was a fun night of wrestling. You had multiple titles changes, surprising squash matches, Undertaker in a opening match, inter gender wrestling and a Money in the Bank cash-in. It set up the WWE well for an exciting Summerslam in August.
As I am still figuring out why Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans were still a part of a second straight WWE pay-per-view main event, I will try to distract myself and present my list of the top five most surprising moments of WWE Extreme Rules 2019:
#5 Bayley Wins The 2 on 1 Handicap Match Clean
Remember when Bayley wasn’t booked properly in the previous two years?
Bayley became a very badly booked joke when she couldn’t hit Alexa Bliss with a kendo stick at Extreme Rules two years ago. It has taken a very long time but Bayley is finally being booked as a credible champion again in 2019. All it took was actually have her win matches and take her feuds seriously. She isn't the child Bayley, she is simply a serious wrestler again. Wrestling can be really simple sometimes if you do it properly.
It is also pretty rare to see a 2 on 1 handicap match end with a clean win for the babyface wrestler. It didn’t even require any miscommunication between Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss. That team worked well together in this match. Bayley simply out wrestled both of them at Extreme Rules. Here is hoping this surprising strong booking for Bayley continues. She certainly deserves it after the last few years in the WWE.
