WWE open, Extreme Rules opening video.  KFC presents Extreme Rules!  Pyro and ballyhoo.  We are LIVE from Baltimore, Maryland!  Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and Matt Striker are the announcers.

Justin Roberts announces that the opening contest is a STREET FIGHT!  Triple H’s music plays, but he doesn’t come out.  They go backstage to show Sheamus beating the shit out of Triple H.  They brawl as referees try to separate them.  Sheamus whacks Triple H in the side and back of the head with a pipe.  Teddy Long and some referees finally get Sheamus to back off, then call for the trainer to check on Triple H.

The Unified WWE Tag Team Champions Show Miz come out.  Miz cuts a promo.  He talks about the deal with Bret Hart, and says tomorrow night, Bret will have to say that Show Miz are the greatest tag team of all time.  I thought that deal was off because of the volcano.  Miz talks about wanting competition.  Teddy Long comes out and says he has a team to put against Show Miz, and if that team wins, they get a title shot.  Miz insults the Baltimore sports team and Teddy.  Long adds another team that they’ll have to face if they make it through the first.  Miz runs his mouth some more, so Teddy adds a third team.  Show finally shuts Miz up before Teddy can make it 4.  Just to recap, Show Miz will face 3 teams in a row (providing they keep winning), and if a team beats them, they get a title shot.

Non-Title: Unified WWE Tag Team Champions The Big Show & WWE United States Champion The Miz vs. John Morrison & R-Truth.  Morrison and Miz go at it.  So I guess Morrison DID end up with a PPV match after pinning the World Champion clean on Smackdown.  Truth tags in and they double team Miz.  Truth made quite a comeback from being blown up on Raw.  Show tags in and makes Truth his bitch.  Miz beats up Truth a bit.  Truth drops him with a kick.  Show and Morrison tag in.  Show tries a chokeslam off the top, but Morrison locks in a half assed triangle choke and pulls Show across the top rope with it.  R-Truth takes Miz out with a dive.  The ref DQ’s Morrison for refusing to break the hold in 3:14.

Non-Title: Unified WWE Tag Team Champions The Big Show & WWE United States Champion The Miz vs. Montel Vontavious Porter & Mark Henry.  MVP covers Show for 2.  MVP goes for the Yakuza kick, but Show blocks it and tags in Miz.  MVP and Henry dominate Miz while Show recovers on the outside.  MVP hits the Ballin’ elbow on Miz, but Show saves.  Henry comes in and gets dropped by Show.  MVP low bridges Show out of the ring and hits the Playmaker on Miz.  He covers, but Show breaks it by completely missing the KO punch.  Miz pins MVP in 1:55.

Non-Title: Unified WWE Tag Team Champions The Big Show & WWE United States Champion The Miz vs. The Hart Dynasty (w/ Bret Hart & Natalya).  The Harts take out Show and hit the springboard Hart Attack on Miz.  Smith pins Miz in 12 seconds.  The Hart Dynasty get a title shot tomorrow night on Raw!

Todd Grisham is in front of the trainer’s room talking about Triple H’s injury.  Sheamus tells Grisham that Triple H can either face him tonight or lose by forfeit.

Barber chair!  Tony Chimel announces the hair match.  The Straight Edge Society comes out.  Thankfully, no long Punk promo tonight.

CM Punk (w/ Luke Gallows & Serena) vs. Rey Mysterio Jr.  Punk beats up Mysterio to start.  Mysterio fights back, but Punk throws him out of the ring.  Mysterio sends Punk into the side of the ring with a head scissors.  Sweet.  Back inside, Mysterio goes for the 619.  Punk catches him and goes for the Go 2 Sleep.  Mysterio counters out.  Punk hits a powerslam for 2.  Punk throws Mysterio out of the ring again.  Serena cheap shots Mysterio behind the referee’s back.  Punk beats up Mysterio on the outside.  Back in the ring, Punk hits the Eddie hilo, plays with his hair, and covers for 2.  Punk locks Mysterio in a head scissors.  Punk tries a sunset flip, but of course Mysterio rolls through and kicks Punk in the head for 2.  Gallows cheap shots Mysterio behind the referee’s back.  Punk covers for 2.  Punk hits a backbreaker for 2.  Punk puts Mysterio in a bow & arrow lock.  Mysterio gets out of it and lands on top for 2.  Punk kills Mysterio with a clothesline for 2.  Punk hits some leg drops.  Punk locks Mysterio in the Gory Special.  Punk goes for a powerbomb, but Mysterio counters into a pinning predicament for 2.  Mysterio ranas Punk into the middle turnbuckle, then goes up top.  Punk crotches him, then goes for the Go 2 Sleep again.  Mysterio counters it and goes for the 619 again, but Serena trips him.  Punk drops Mysterio.  The referee ejects Gallows and Serena.  Punk goes outside, upset.  Mysterio hits a baseball slide dropkick and a beautiful Asai moonsault.  Back inside, Mysterio covers for 2.  Mysterio catches Punk with a kick for 2.  Mysterio hits a springboard Bombs Away and goes for a springboard cross body, but Punk catches him with a dropkick for 2.  Punk hits the springboard lariat for 2.  Punk’s starting to unravel.  Mysterio counters another Go 2 Sleep attempt into a Frankensteiner for 2.  Punk kicks Mysterio in the head.  Cover gets 2.  Mysterio avoids the knee to the corner and head scissors Punk into 619 position.  Mysterio hits the 619, then a masked person throws a chair into the ring to distract the referee, powerbombs Mysterio off the apron, then hides under the ring.  Punk puts Mysterio back in the ring and hits the Go 2 Sleep for the pin in 15:59.  Really good match.  Punk sits in the barber chair and celebrates with Gallows and Serena.

The DRAFT is tomorrow night!


The National Guard!

Strap Match time!  They show Shad turning on JTG a few weeks ago on Smackdown.

Strap Match: Shad Gaspard vs. JTG.  Lawler says the strategy in a strap match is “You gotta win.”  Shad drops JTG and touches 3 corners before JTG recovers and whips the shit out of him.  JTG touches one corner, then gets cut off.  Shad throws him to the apron, whips him, and JTG falls to the floor.  Shad touches 2 corners, but JTG holds him back with the strap.  JTG pulls Shad across the top rope, then comes back in and hits a diving leg lariat.  JTG touches 2 corners, then gets cut off.  Shad hits a… front drop, then uses the strap to pull JTG’s shoulder into the post.  Shad whips JTG while singing a parody of the Nightmare On Elm Street song.  Shad chokes JTG with the strap and starts touching corners, but JTG touches each one behind him, unbeknownst to Shad.  JTG cuts Shad off before he can touch the 4th, hits the Sling Blade, and touches the 4th corner to win it 4:42.  This was alright for what it was.

KFC Double Down!  I want one of those.

Todd Grisham is still outside the trainer’s room.  Grisham says Triple H has “nerve issues” and “numbness in his hand” and probably won’t be able to wrestle tonight.  That’s wrestling for “He’ll be fine in an hour.”

Orton/Swagger video package.

Extreme Rules Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Jack Swagger (c) vs. Randy Orton.  Swagger does his amateur stuff.  Orton elbows Swagger off of the middle rope and covers for 1.  Orton hits the 3.0 for 2.  They go outside.  Orton cuts Swagger off from using a chair and stalks him around the ring.  Swagger bails into the ring and tries to punt Orton on the way in.  Swagger bails to the outside when Orton comes in.  Orton follows and Swagger gets the jump on him.  Swagger sends Orton into the barricade and hits a Northern Lights suplex on the floor, then drives Orton into the barricade (again) and the side of the ring.  Back inside, Swagger covers for 2.  Swagger punishes Orton in the corner, then hits a suplex.  Orton fights back, but Swagger hits a belly to belly suplex for 2.  Swagger hits another suplex, then a backdrop suplex.  Swagger continues beating up Orton.  Swagger brings in the title belt.  My video skips around a bit.  Orton makes a comeback, but gets slammed.  Swagger goes for the springboard Vader Bomb, but Orton hits him in the gut with the belt.  Orton hits a powerslam for 2.  Orton goes for the DDT OF MURDER, but Swagger counters him and throws him out of the ring.  Swagger tries to use a garbage can, but Orton catches it and nails Swagger with it twice.  Orton rams Swagger’s head into the announcers’ table a couple of times, then hits a European uppercut.  Orton whips Swagger into the steps.  Orton stomps Swagger’s head on the steps.  Back in the ring, Orton hits the Garvin Stomp.  Swagger avoids a big knee drop and brings a chair in.  Orton cuts him off and hits the DDT OF MURDER.  Orton humps the mat, then sets up the chair.  Orton sets up the RKO, but Swagger throws Orton onto the chair.  Ouch.  Swagger hits the Doctor Bomb for the pin.  Pretty good match.  I timed it at 13:46, but that’s not correct due to my video skipping at one point.  At least Swagger won it clean.  Just because they just had the World Champion look good, and that’s a terrible thing, Orton drops Swagger with the RKO outside the ring after the match.

Sheamus comes to the ring and insists that the referee declare him the winner.  They argue.  Cut to Todd Grisham saying that Triple H won’t be able to compete.  Triple H bursts out the door and heads our way as the trainer tells him not to.  Triple H is selling that his arm is limp.

Street Fight: Sheamus vs. Triple H.  Triple H tackles Sheamus and punches him on the ground, then clotheslines him out of the ring.  Triple H clotheslines Sheamus from behind on the outside and rams him into the announce table.  Triple H beats up Sheamus all over ringside, then hits the spinebuster back inside.  Triple H goes for the Peidgree, but can’t make it happen because of the limp arm.  Sheamus clotheslines Triple H, who rolls outside.  Sheamus beats up Triple H on the outside, then in the ring.  Sheamus hits a knee drop for 2.  Triple H tries to fight back, but Sheamus clotheslines him for 2.  Sheamus applies a neck/shoulder hold.  Triple H backdrop suplexes Sheamus to escape it and rolls out of the ring.  Sheamus follows and hits a neckbreaker on the floor.  Back inside, Triple H makes his comeback.  Triple H hits a DDT, then sells the injured neck.  Sheamus hits the uranage backbreaker for 2.  Sheamus pounds Triple H, then hits a running powerslam for 2.  Sheamus tries to use the pipe, but Triple H cuts him off.  Triple H hits the knee facebuster, then Sheamus whacks Triple H in the head with the pipe for 2.  Sheamus goes for the Razor’s Edge, but Triple H counters and backdrops Sheamus out of the ring.  Outside, Sheamus hits Triple H in the gut, then grabs a Singapore cane from under the ring.  Triple H hits a drop toe hold into the steps, then WHACKS Sheamus in the back of the head with the cane.  Triple H wears Sheamus out with the cane, then goes for the Peidgree on the ramp.  Sheamus backdrops him out of it, then hits the pump kick.  Sheamus brings Triple H back to the ring and hits another pump kick but lets Triple H recover.  Triple H does the crotch chop.  Sheamus hits 2 more pump kicks for the pin in 15:50.  It was okay, I guess.  They made it perfectly clear that Sheamus couldn’t only beat Triple H after a hard fought match when Triple H’s arm was paralyzed.  They put a neck brace on Triple H and try to stretcher him out.  Triple H shoves them off and tries to leave on his own, but ends up walking up the ramp with help.  When they reach the ramp, Sheamus hits Triple H with another pump kick.  They stretcher Triple H out.
