Out of ten matches at Extreme Rules, three have a stipulation and that includes the iron-man match.

I'm sure whatever stipulation it has will be announced on Twitter, which seems par for the course for WWE these days

Crossposting Big Dog praise. Tama Tonga did an interview with Uproxx during the G1 Special

quote:

Okay, you said you donít have dream matches, but letís thought experiment, if you could main event a show, who would be your dream opponent?

Roman Reigns.

Okay, if you had to do like a gimmick stipulation match with Roman Reigns, would it be hair vs. hair or vest vs. vest?

Hair.

Thatís high stakes.

I think heís awesomeÖ I donít see what fans [donít like about him], I see something different. Heís good. Maybe, from what Iím understanding, is fans donít like when the company shoves somebody down their throat. I donít look at that. The guy works. He puts in work. He looks phenomenal. He doesnít need that vest, you know? But he wears it. But he donít need it. I got a lot of respect for that guy. And heís at the top, so Iíll take a shot at the top.

The Yard only has space for like, maybe 2 normal-sized dogs. Or maybe even like 4+ small dogs? Like a bunch of chihuahuas or something. That's totally acceptable for The Yard.

But these dogs...oh my god these dogs...they're so large you guys. So unimaginably large that only 1 of these dogs can barely fit in The Yard as it is, and 2 is quite frankly completely out of the question.



Why doesn't Vince buy a bigger The Yard? We don't have all the answers yet.

I like to think I'm more positive about WWE's product than most of you guys but I have to agree the last couple of months of Raw have felt particularly bad. Roman's careened from one bad feud to another, Nia's dragging the women's division down, Finn's being wasted, KO's being wasted, holy gently caress that Sami/Lashley feud and their refusal to give Braun the ball is leading to him eating up the midcard instead of giving them the chance to succeed. The only things that I really get excited about any more are Seth matches, Ember matches, Elias concerts and Liv Morgan.

Smackdown still good though.

The downward trend for both shows since the new TV deals were announced continues

quote:

Mondayís WWE Raw television show averaged 2.47 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was down from the 2.707 million average from last week.

Powellís POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 2.582 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.508 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.320 million viewers. A rough week for Raw heading into Extreme Rules. For that matter, it doesnít seem like Brock Lesnar showing up at UFC 226 generated any extra attention for WWE, though it wasnít even mentioned on Raw.
