Things are going to be extreme on Sunday night as WWE presents Extreme Rules on pay-per-view. As is always the case, you can let me know what you think will be happening at this show by clicking on the comments links below. I just ask that you help keep this site non-spoiler and do not mention anything that happened during Tuesday night's SmackDown taping until that show airs on the East Coast on Friday.
Pre-show: The Miz vs. Cody Rhodes - Both of these men find themselves lost in the shuffle. It's especially surprising to find The Miz in this spot considering that it was only slightly more than two years ago that he won the main event of WrestleMania. Regardless of who wins this match, I don't see it springboarding the status of either man up that far up the ladder. I'm picking Miz to get the win here just to make the fans happy as there is no reason to get them angry minutes before some of them might make the decision to buy this event. Predicted Winner: The Miz

Last weekend, TNA premiered their second pre-taped One Night Only pay-per-view event. This month, the theme of Joker's Wild was that 24 men would be paired up randomly into 12 teams. The first round of the tournament consisted of six tag team matches. The winners of those matches would then go onto compete in a gauntlet battle royal where the winner of that match would walk earn $100,000. To find out who is $100,000 richer as well as what happened at last month's X-Division themed show, click here.

Last night, Ring of Honor held Border Wars 2013 on iPPV. In addition to Jay Briscoe successfully defending the Ring of Honor World Heavyweight Championship against Adam Cole, the fate of Steve Corino's Ring of Honor career was on the line in a tag team battle pitting Ring of Honor against SCUM. Because of SCUM's victory, not only does he get to stay in Ring of Honor, Steve Corino also earned a spot at the commentary table for Ring of Honor's programs.

Extreme Rules 2013 will be taking place in three weeks. That show will feature the rubber match between Triple H and Brock Lesnar as well as Ryback getting a shot at the WWE Championship.
Last year's main event at SummerSlam featured Brock and Triple H fight each other while Hell in a Cell 2012 featured Ryback's only one-on-one title shot on pay-per-view to date. To get psyched up for the upcoming pay-per-view, you might be tempted to buy one of these two shows on DVD. My reviews of these two DVDs will let you know whether or not that is a good idea as well as give you an alternative way of watching the main events from both shows.
