WWE Extreme Rules: 5 biggest mistakes WWE made at the pay-per-view
Extreme Rules did just what the name of the event suggests, and gave us some extreme matches during a star-studded night.
While Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley were busy destroying half the arena and mounting up the repair bills, there were many matches which were technically perfect and gave fans a good show.
While Aleister Black and Cesaro stole the show with their wrestling abilities, Finn Balor and Shinsuke Nakamura were not too far behind. Even Roman Reigns and The Undertaker made a good team who finally took down the villainous faction of Shane McMahon, Drew McIntyre, and Elias.
Even though there were a lot of positives during the night, WWE still committed some very major mistakes which made a lot of segments largely forgettable.
In this article, we will look at the 5 biggest mistakes WWE made at the pay-per-view, and how they have impacted many storylines.
#5 Bayley’s win, Cross’ loss
While Bayley has been nowhere as hyped up as Becky Lynch, she was put in a 2-on-1 Handicap match against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross.
For weeks WWE had been building up to this match and showing signs of how Bliss was manipulating and using Cross in her favor. Fans were expecting a massive turn or surprise during the match.
However, they got a fairly good match with nothing special and Cross taking the pinfall for the loss instead of Bliss. This was a big mistake as WWE could have used the story of Bliss taking the pinfall loss instead and given Cross a chance to break out of Bliss’ spell and go on the hunt for the title herself.
It was surprising that even Bliss wasn’t upset about Cross taking the pin to lose the match and embraced the superstar rather than showing her evil side and abandoning her in the process.
