This is a results only post that will let you know who wins and loses the matches at WWE’s The Horror Show at Extreme Rules pay-per-view tonight. The more detailed “The John Report” review is right here.
I’m sorry if you have had problems accessing TJRWrestling lately. It’s not just you. The old site design has had problems and I don’t know how to fix it, nor do I even want to try for fear of losing things. It’s not worth me paying somebody to fix it because we are doing a complete redesign that also involves moving the five-plus years of content on a new server, so it takes time. I’ve got a web designer working on a complete rebuild of the entire site with a new look. We hope to have a new look ready by next weekend. I’m excited about the new look. Faster site for all, especially on mobile devices. I anticipate writing a bit less in this coming week due to the website not functioning properly. TJRWrestling is my career and I hate that we’re going to go through this rough patch for another week, but it’s going to be fine in the long run. Thanks for staying with us and supporting the site.
Anyway, here are the results of the show.
Kickoff Show: Kevin Owens defeated Murphy.
Tables Match for the Smackdown Tag Team Championships: Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura defeated The New Day’s Big E and Kofi Kingston to win the titles. Cesaro and Nakamura won when Cesaro gave Kingston a powerbomb through two tables.
Smackdown Women’s Championship: Bayley retained her title against Nikki Cross. Sasha Banks put her Boss hand jewelry on Bayley’s hand, the referee never saw it and Bayley punched Cross in the ribs. Bayley hit her finisher and pinned Cross.
It was announced that Apollo Crews was injured and unable to compete. Apollo’s opponent MVP went to the ring with Bobby Lashley, claimed he was the new US Champion and left with the new US Title that was introduced a few weeks ago. The announcers made it clear that Crews is still the US Champion.
Eye for an Eye Match: Seth Rollins defeated Rey Mysterio. Rollins jammed Rey’s right eye into the corner of the steel steps just like had done in the past. Mysterio sold it by putting his hand over his right eye.
The Raw Women’s Championship match ended in controversial fashion. They did a ref bump after Asuka sprayed the green mist in his face when Banks avoided the green mist attempt. Bayley put on the ref shirt and counted the pin. Banks left with the Raw Women’s Title. It does not mean Banks is the new champion. It’s likely that Asuka will remain the champion.
WWE Championship: Drew McIntyre defeated Dolph Ziggler to retain the WWE Title. Ziggler got to use Extreme Rules while McIntyre did not, but Drew found a way to win with a Claymore Kick after 16 minutes.
Wyatt Swamp Fight: It was a cinematic match where they fought all over some swamp area with a lot of cuts and edits along the way. At one point, Strowman was attacked by another Braun Strowman that happened to be there. That’s some creative editing. Later, Strowman was tied up by Wyatt. They even had an Alexa Bliss cameo where she tried to lure Braun. It was as if we were seeing Braun’s thoughts. The fight went over to some wooden area and Strowman knocked Wyatt off of it to send him into the water. Strowman thought it was over, the WWE Extreme Rules logo was even on screen, but then Strowman was pulled into the water. The water turned red and The Fiend emerged. That was the end of the show. While there’s no obvious winner, you could say that the winner was Bray Wyatt as The Fiend. It likely means we get STrowman vs. The Fiend at SummerSlam.
Extreme Rules had a runtime of 2:33:47 on WWE Network.
