WWE Extreme Rules 2012 DVD Cover

WWE headed in Extreme Rules 2012 on a roll. The prior month, wrestling fans were treated to an incredible show at WrestleMania XXVIII that featured John Cena fight The Rock in his first match at WrestleMania since WrestleMania XX. This event featured John Cena take on Brock Lesnar in an Extreme Rules Match in his first match for the WWE since WrestleMania XX.

What I Said Then: By the time the World Heavyweight Championship match ended, I felt like I got my money's worth with this show. That was then followed by a WWE Championship Match between Chris Jericho and CM Punk that was better than their great match at WrestleMania XXVIII. The main event was a fight unlike anything I have seen in a WWE ring before. All of this was made even more special by a great Chicago crowd. If you missed this one, I recommend ordering the replay at full price because it was that good of a show.

Has My Opinion Changed? No.

Overall Recommendation: For a three-hour pay-per-view event, it doesn't get much better than this. The three previously mentioned matches make this an easy recommendation for me to say it belongs in your wrestling DVD library.
