WWE: Extreme Rules 2013 DVD review – Ringside Report + Wrestling Uncensored

erFormer UFC champion Brock Lesnar was locked inside a cage to end his rivalry with 13-time World Champion Triple H using The Game’s own sledgehammer against him to end Extreme Rules 2013.
Despite Lesnar’s fighting background he was on defence most of the match and without timely interference from Paul Heyman, Lesnar looked as if he was going to suffer another loss. The match was nowhere near the brutality level of their WrestleMania encounter, but it had impactful and hard-hitting moments. Not the best Lesnar match since his return, yet still more entertaining compared to their first encounter.
The WWE Championship Last Man Standing match between John Cena and Ryback also provided some explosive action, literally. Ryback sending Cena through the stage is a moment that will be remembered as an OMG stand-out. Lots of back and forth action between the two, making them appear even and leaving you with the likelihood that their rivalry is only beginning with this match.
In one of the last big matches of his decade-plus WWE career, Mark Henry fell to Sheamus in a Strap Match. Henry was been a monster tearing through most in his way, however, Sheamus and his Brogue Kick were the answer to stopping Henry from touching all four corners first. Again another back and forth affair but Sheamus used his speed advantage to get past Henry when he needed to.
This event was quite possibly the biggest one ever for The Shield as each member captured championship gold. Dean Ambrose won the U.S. Championship from Kofi Kingston and Rollins and Reigns defeated the long-reigning Tag Team Champions Team Hell No. Thanks to Tornado tag rules the tag match was exciting from start to finish.

Extreme Rules is usually one of the better pay-per-views and again this year it’s one of the better shows by WWE this year. The gimmick matches help, but you also get some decent non-extreme matches as well. Despite the PG-rating this presentation was definitely extreme.
