Tell him what you want. With Extreme Rules less than two weeks away, it is time to get ready for one of the more gimmicky events of the year. There are all kinds of matches that you could throw out there, but the question is how extreme things can get. Sometimes a gimmick can make a match that much more interesting, and hopefully that is the case this time around.
There have been some big matches being set up in WWE as we move towards the pay per view and a good many of them are on the Monday Night Raw side of things. With so many matches available, WWE has a nice selection to choose from for the pay per view. Some of them will be about titles while others will be personal, with the latter being the better choice for a more violent kind of match.
Two more matches were set for Extreme Rules on this week’s Monday Night Raw. First, Rey Mysterio accepted Seth Rollins’ challenge to a match. Later in the show, Mysterio teamed with Kevin Owens to defeat Rollins and Murphy, earning the right to choose the stipulation. Mysterio picked an Eye For An Eye match, where the winner is the first person to pull out his opponent’s eye. This match had been rumored over the weekend. Second, Apollo Crews vs. MVP has been set for the US Title. MVP defeated Crews for in a non-title match on last week’s show.
Both of these matches have a history. Check out how they got to the pay per view:
Opinion: I’m surprised that it’s Crews vs. MVP instead of Lashley, but it does make more sense given the story they have been telling. If nothing else, there is always Summerslam for Lashley to get his big match and that might be a little more interesting in the long run. The Eye For An Eye deal has me curious though, as I’m not entirely sure how to do that without going past PG. Or, you know, some kind of legal issue with excessive violence.
Which match sounds better? Who wins both of them? Let us know in the comments below.
