WWE Extreme Rules 2018: Kevin Owens goes for a long ride down

The first-ever July edition of Extreme Rules took place in Pittsburgh Sunday night inside the PPG Paints Arena. With this pay-per-view being the last before the biggest event of the summer in August, SummerSlam, I was looking for some storylines to end and storylines to begin coming out of this particular pay-per-view.

WWE Money in the Bank: Ronda Rousey vies for a title, but Alexa Bliss walks away the winner

Chicago’s Allstate Arena hosted what many, including myself, consider the fifth-biggest pay-per-view on the WWE calendar on Sunday night, Money in the Bank. Complete with two women’s championship matches, a women’s Money in the Bank ladder match, a men’s Money in the Bank ladder match, WWE Championship match, and Intercontinental Championship match, the card was stacked from top to bottom.

WWE Fastlane: Styles survives, Asuka to challenge Charlotte Flair

The main event featured five guys – but no burgers or fries – and the undercard was less than stellar. Maybe that’s a reason why, after WrestleMania, WWE is doing away with the brand-exclusive pay-per-views.
