For being named "Extreme Rulez", there really aren't many matches with a stipulation...

Match 1. Falls Count Anywhere - Bryan vs. Slater  Intercontinental Title
Slater came out of nowhere to challenge for this belt. I sort of want Bryan to retain the title. Seeing him as the IC champ and facing World title contenders is pretty cool. Slater picked up a chair and went crazy on Bryan. He then got a table. Bryan wasn't fazed as he put him in the Lebell Lock to retain.

Match 2. Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Orton  United States Title
I'm kind of over HBK being champ, so if he doesn't lose it here he'll lose it at the next PPV. The match was filled with reversals and momentum-swinging moves. HBK hit the elbow drop and then SCM to retain.

Match 3. Demolition vs. Legion of Doom  Tag Team Titles
I believe the belts changed hands at every PPV, so I guess LOD should get them back. There are other tag teams, right? These two teams have the LONGEST tag matches ever. Well, Animal finally hit his powerslam to regain the tag titles.

Match 4. Punk vs. Austin
I don't know why these two are fighting each other. No title on the line, no stipulation. It's just a standard singles match. I should have edited it to a 10-man battle royal. Swagger interfered to help Punk. He hit the gutwrench powerbomb and then left. Despite that, Austin went on a tear and won the match.

Match 5. Extreme Rules - Cena vs. Kane vs. Batista  WWE Title
If Batista stayed on Smackdown, he wouldn't be challenging for the main belt. This is probably the match I was most looking forward to. It's a chance for Batista to take the title from Cena and Kane. Cena ALMOST hit the AA on Kane but Batista broke it up. Whew. Weapons were used all over the place in this match. Cena hit the AA on Batista while he was sizing Kane up for the Batista Bomb. Kane never recovered to break up the pin. Pretty good match.

Main Event. Extreme Rules - Taker vs. Show  World Title
The last match is going to be tough to follow. I guess facing Nash in consecutive weeks gets you a title match. Taker landed Old School and then a Tombstone. Show fought back and hit the Showstopper, but Taker got right back up. After a swinging DDT, Show scored the pin to win the title.

Recap: I want other tag teams challenging for the titles. I'll figure out a way to do that.
