Neville def. Bad News Barrett (Kickoff Match)
The night was full of bad news for Barrett at Extreme Rules 2015, thanks to The Man That Gravity Forgot, Neville.
Before the Extreme Rules Kickoff commenced Sunday night, the brawler from Preston, England, was pretty confident after learning that he wouldn’t be competing for the Intercontinental Championship, as Daniel Bryan hadn’t been medically cleared to defend his title. He never suspected, that he would find himself on the canvas for a three-count while attempting to take out the main roster newcomer.
The first inklings of this upset came right off opening bell, as The New Sensation used his speed and agility to take full advantage of Barrett’s blatant lack of respect for his fellow Brit. Barrett was quick to adjust, taking control of the contest by yanking his adversary’s legs out from under him as Neville geared up for a dive from the apron. The five-time former Intercontinental Champion continued to set the pace and keep Neville grounded from there.
It all seemed over when Barrett countered Neville in two separate instances to hit Winds of Change and Wasteland. However, Neville shot his shoulder up with resilient enthusiasm at the count of two both times. Done playing around, Barrett cocked the Bad News Bull Hammer Elbow for an unloading on The New Sensation’s temple. He then aimed, fired … and missed. Twice.
Neville ducked the blows and delivered shots of his own to Barrett’s dome. With his opponent dazed and floored, The Man That Gravity Forgot landed the Red Arrow and heard an ovation from Chicago’s sold-out Allstate Arena crowd three seconds later.
On the positive side, Barrett still has his Intercontinental Title rematch clause, so maybe it wasn’t all bad news for him at Extreme Rules.
Dolph Ziggler def. Sheamus (Kiss Me Arse Match)
Though Dolph Ziggler overcame Sheamus in a “Kiss Me Arse” Match at Extreme Rules, it was The Showoff who ultimately lost on the back end.
The bleach-blond Superstar’s showdown for pride against The Celtic Warrior proved to be absolutely explosive from the start. The match started with the vicious brawl that spilled outside the ring. While Ziggler initiated the brawl, It was Sheamus who delivered a prolonged and torturous beat down for most of the match. Then, in the final moments, a battered Ziggler shocked Sheamus and the sold-out Chicago members of the WWE Universe alike when he contered a suplex attempt by trapping The Celtic Warrior’s head and arm to score the three-count. With terror in his eyes, the Irish Superstar was faced with the startling realization of kissing his adversary’s arse in a match that he himself suggested.
After agonizing over what he had to do with numerous retreats, however, Sheamus would suddenly turn the tables, first dropping Ziggler with a low blow and then blasting him with the Brogue Kick. Sheamus then robbed Ziggler of his win by lifting Dolph’s unconscious head and rubbing it all over his alabaster arse!
Ziggler’s official and moral victory quickly turned into the most humiliating moment of his career. The question now is, “Are you entertained, Fella?!”
The New Day’s Big E & Kofi Kingston def. Tyson Kidd & Cesaro to win the WWE Tag Team Championship
A new day is upon WWE’s tag team division as Big E & Kofi Kingston used their unwavering positivity, and some help from their New Day cohort Xavier Woods, to unseat WWE Tag Team Champions Tyson Kidd & Cesaro in a thrilling tag team showdown at Extreme Rules.
“New Day Sucks!” chants rang throughout the Allstate Arena, but the Chicago crowd’s rowdy reaction couldn’t slow down the spirited trio, who remained undeterred en route to claiming the WWE Tag Team Titles.
Both teams were very evenly matched, with Cesaro and Big E representing the power and Kidd and Kingston showcasing the speed for their respective sides. The latter began the matchup before quickly turning the action over to their larger tag team partners, with The Swiss Superman showing off superhuman strength by catching the 285-pound Big E in mid-air before slamming him to the mat.
The pace of the contest remained measured as both sides seemed to be feeling each other out. However, The King of Swing and The Dreadlocked Dynamo soon kicked things into overdrive, putting on an athletic showcase. The action quickly intensified with The New Day looking to be on the verge of victory with their signature Big Ending-second rope slam maneuver, before Cesaro jumped in for the save.
Kingston attempted to finish off the champions once and for all with a Trouble in Paradise on his Canadian adversary, only to have it reversed into The Sharpshooter. Luckily for the high-flying Superstar, Big E came in for the save, sending Kidd halfway across the ring with an explosive belly-to-belly suplex.
Just when it seemed like the titleholders had the battle won with their popular Swing-dropkick combination, a frantic Woods got up on the ring apron to grab the referee’s attention. A slap from Natalya, followed by a kick from Kidd, knocked Woods to the ground, but it was too late. A running Big E sent the Hart Dungeon graduate flying off the ring apron, before Kingston rolled up Cesaro (with the help of a handful of tights) for the victory.
Have no fear WWE Universe, the new WWE Tag Team Champions are here!
Dean Ambrose def. Luke Harper
Ever since Luke Harper tossed him through a ladder like a ragdoll at WrestleMania 31, Dean Ambrose has been driven by retribution. At Extreme Rules, The Lunatic Fringe achieved it, and claimed victory in a Chicago Street Fight – a wild one that spilled into the very streets of the Second City!
Harper hadn’t even made it into the ring before Ambrose went on the offensive. After the opening bell, the action almost immediately spilled to the outside floor, with Ambrose throwing his opponent into the steel steps. Wasting no time and taking advantage of the match stipulations, The Lunatic Fringe retrieved a bevy of weapons from underneath the ring. Mercilessly attacking with a Kendo stick, it looked as though Ambrose would take the victory before Harper could even mount an attack.
However, the sizable Harper proved his resilience, fighting back and suplexing his opponent through a chair – literally. Harper grabbed hold of the Kendo stick himself and retaliated for the earlier assault. Ambrose eventually recoveredand battled back and forth with Harper, though neither Superstar could take advantage of the contest.
As the unorthodox bout raged back to the arena floor, Ambrose managed to commandeer another Kendo stick – once again furiously attacking Harper. As The Lunatic Fringe continued to strike, the two combatants made their way backstage, throwing anything they could find at each other. Harper eventually made his way into a parked car and Ambrose followed – diving through the very passenger side window as Harper sped away into the streets of Chicago – but the match could only end in the ring.
More than 30 minutes later, the vehicle returned to the Allstate Arena while new WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day celebrated their victory over Tyson Kidd & Cesaro. Harper spilled out of the car, while Ambrose missed an attempted elbow drop off the car roof, instead landing on Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods. The combatants battled backstage before once again making their way back to the ring.
After tossing chairs into the sqaured circle, the two Superstars continued to brawl, but Harper was unable to secure victory after a powerbomb onto a chair. Attempting to end the match for good, Harper buried The Lunatic Fringe under a pile of chairs and made his way to the top rope. Ambrose recovered, though, and threw his opponent into the pile of chairs before executing Dirty Deeds for the victory.
No one has any idea where Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper went when they sped out of the Allstate Arena. All that matters to the WWE Universe, though, is that Ambrose claimed victory in a very brutal and unordinary match.
