Booyaka Booyaka! Six One Eye! What a disgusting show Extreme Rules was, right?
But it wasn’t without its strong matches. We were incredibly interested in everything going on with Sasha vs. Asuka. A lot of people weren’t on board with the finish, but we’ll explain why we’re fine with a little screw ball in the right context.
Plus we’ll get into AEW’s new star(?) Eddie Kingston and talk about why our opinions varied so much on the Young Bucks vs. Butcher and the Blade.
Since the Pandemic shut down everything, WWE decided that pre-taped matches and mini-movies were an effective form of PPV content. And while we’ve gotten some great high marks like Edge vs. Randy Orton and The FireFly Funhouse, this past week gave is the low bar of the eye-for-an-eye match and the Swamp Fight. How long can WWE keep getting away with this? And is it worth pushing through the worst of this for the chance at better shows?
