WWE planned to deliver a few punches through Extreme Rules and they were successful in doing so for the most part. On a card which was loaded with a lot of matches and some of the biggest names in wrestling, the creatives did reasonably well to satisfy the fans and the crowd in attendance.

However, the show came with its fair share of shockers and surprises which kept the storylines and the superstars involved on their toes.

From Brock Lesnar cashing in, to Bayley getting another major win on a pay-per-view, there were many things which kept fans interested in the event and left a lot of things to be desired at the same time.

In this article, we will look at the 5 biggest shocking moments and bookings from the show, and what they could mean going forward.

#5 The Monsters Among Men

When the Last Man Standing match between Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley began on Sunday night, there was only one Monster Among Men in WWE. However, after the conclusion of the match, there is no reason not to believe that Bobby Lashley is an equally good monster as Strowman.

Lashley put on a superior performance as compared to the ones he’s put up over the last year clearly showing that he has evolved as a wrestler and is getting back on track.

During the clash, it was obvious that Lashley was the superior and more experienced performer. He showcased his power, athleticism, and aggression during the bout and never let his control slip throughout the match. While Strowman got the big spots and the victory to wrap up the night, Lashley ensured that Strowman got his moment but taking huge bumps and ultimately giving fans arguably the most fun match of the night.

One can expect Lashley to get a push coming out of the event even after a loss as he showed that he is ready to get into more technical matches now than he was before.
