PPV Fusion: Extreme Rules 2015

by Firefly on 27th April 2015

The 2015 WWE Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View starts with a video hyping the matches to take place later on in the night, followed by Dean Ambrose taking on Luke Harper in a Chicago Street Fight match to kick things off.

The match sees both men battling in the ring, around ringside and through to the back, to a point where referee Charles Robinson is left behind along with the cameras because Luke Harper steals someone’s car and drives off with half of Dean Ambrose hanging out of a window.

After an interaction backstage involving Triple H, Seth Rollins and Kane, and a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Dolph Ziggler is pitted against Sheamus in a Kiss Me Arse match, which sees Ziggler get the victory when he counters Sheamus’ suplex attempt into a small package for the 3-count.

Afterwards, Sheamus has a look of disbelief on his face and seems to be trying to think of any way to get out of it, but the referee informs him that Sheamus has to do it. Unfortunately for Ziggler, it proves to be a mistake to show his back to Sheamus as Sheamus hits Ziggler with a low blow, follows it up with a Brogue Kick, and instead forces his to head to rub against Sheamus’ arse instead.

After a video and the announcers hyping some shows to come on the WWE Network, “The New Day” Big E and Kofi Kingston (accompanied by fellow member Xavier Woods) go against Cesaro and Tyson Kidd (accompanied by Natalya) in a match for the WWE Tag Team Championship.

The match sees Kingston get the victory for his team, when he rolls up Cesaro with the aid of the tights, getting the 3-count for The New Day to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions.

After checking in with the Extreme Rules Panel (comprised of Byron Saxton, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T and Corey Graves), including mention of the Intercontinental Championship match being unable to take place due to Daniel Bryan not being medically cleared to compete, and a video recapping the Kickoff match between Neville and Bad News Barrett which Neville won, Renee Young interviews The New Day backstage about their victory.

The interview is interrupted by the return of Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper, this time with Ambrose at the wheel. Xavier Woods’ amusement at Harper still getting beaten up is cut short however, when Ambrose dives off the roof of the car and takes out all three members of The New Day, with Harper getting out of the way just in time.

The fight between Ambrose and Harper continues on the way back to the ring, with both men filling the ring with steel chairs, but the match sees Ambrose get the victory when he throws Harper off the turnbuckle into the chairs, and follows it up with the Dirty Deeds DDT for the 3-count.

After a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Rusev (accompanied by Lana) takes on John Cena for the United States Championship in a Russian Chain match. The match sees Cena get the victory, when Cena hits Rusev with an Attitude Adjustment when both men have each hit 3 corners, which allows Cena to follow it up by hitting his fourth and final corner.

After a video hyping Chris Jericho’s interview with Stephanie McMahon to take place immediately after the upcoming episode of SmackDown, and Renee Young interviews Roman Reigns about his upcoming match, and a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Nikki Bella (accompanied by Brie) is pitted against Naomi (who is sporting new music and a new look) in a match for the Divas Championship.

The match sees Nikki get the victory, when Brie hits Naomi with a kick to the face behind the referee’s back, and Nikki follows it up with the Rack Attack for the 3-count to retain her title.

After a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, The Big Show is pitted against Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing match which sees Reigns get the victory, when he hits Show with a spear through the Spanish Announce table, before pushing the English Announce table over onto Show, standing upon it as the referee finishes his 10-count.

After a video hyping the release of The Marine 4, starring The Miz and Summer Rae, an interaction backstage involving Kane and Randy Orton, and a video recapping some of the Tough Enough entries received by WWE so far, Bo Dallas makes his way out to the ring.

Dallas insults the crowd until being interrupted by the arrival of Ryback, who despite the initial attack on him by Dallas, takes Dallas out with a meat-hook clothesline that he follows up with the ShellShock.

After Byron Saxton interviews Lana and Rusev and we learn that Rusev and John Cena will face each other again in an I Quit match at the next WWE Pay-Per-View, Payback on 17th May, and a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Randy Orton goes against Seth Rollins in a Cage match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, with there also being the added stipulation of the RKO being banned and the added complication of Kane being the “Gatekeeper” to the cage door.

The match sees Kane chokeslam both Orton and Rollins, Orton hit Kane with an RKO, and Rollins get the victory when he hits Orton with an RKO and escapes the cage to retain his title amid controversy.

Seth Rollins stumbles up the ramp with his title held aloft in celebration, as Extreme Rules goes off the air.
