1.[FATAL FOUR WAY US TITLE]KOFI KINGSTON VS WILLIAM REGAL VS MVP VS MATT HARDY-we start the night out with a four way for the us title and with the four guys involved it could have been classic. While it was far from that it proved to be a good opener. The action was well paced especially as the match went on, although I wanted Regal to win this Kofi pulls off a nice win.

2.[NO HOLDS BARRED I-C TITLE]REY MYSTERIO VS CHRIS JERICHO-the best match of the night in my opinion here. Both guys pull out all the stops here going back and forth with some great moves. Each getting their signature stuff while keeping the pace nice and quick. Still the best thing about this great match is the awesome ending. The way Jericho wins the belt is brilliant.

3.[SAMOAN STRAP MATCH]CM PUNK VS UMAGA-now these strap matches usually go one of two ways, either a straight up classic, or hard to watch. This one comes in some where in between. It is by no means even close to a classic but it isn't brutal to watch either. It is the touch all four corners stipulation thing and the action is what you would expect. Umaga uses his power while Punk uses his speed and they both use the strap in various ways. Punk pulls out the win here in a match that could have been better.

4.[EXTREME RULES ECW TITLE]CHRISTIAN VS TOMMY DREAMER VS JACK SWAGGER-my favorite match of the night because one of my all time favorite wrestlers ever Tommy Dreamer would win the ECW title once again. The thing for this match was if he lost he would leave wrestling, but he had to go through Christian and Swagger. The match was a really fun one that reminded me of the old ECW in the ways the weapons were used. Tommy seemed like he did in the old days as he took it to both guys and got the pin over Swagger. His celebration afterward was excellent and the fans were really into it, "ECW ECW ECW".

5.[HOG PEN MATCH]VICKIE GUERRERO VS SANTINA MARELLA-man it had been a long time since I had seen a hog pen match, I seem to remember Triple H in one of these as well. That match of course was back in like 95 or 96 but any way that is not this match is it. Vickie makes this a handicap match with Chavo coming in to help her, kinda funny. That of course is what this match is all about, comedy. It is a fun match and serves its purpose, Santina gets the win here.

6.[STEEL CAGE WWE TITLE]RANDY ORTON VS BATISTA-I can't stand when the champ comes out first, champ comes out last and that is just how that is supposed to work. Now this was a shorter match than I thought it was going to be but it was good. Batista really brought it to Randy here beating him all over the cage. Randy only landed offense only to try and escape. Also when watching this match again it kinda struck me as one of those cage matches from the 90's for some reason.. Batista gets the win and the title after a Batista bomb in a pretty good cage match.

7.[SUBMISSION MATCH]BIG SHOW VS JOHN CENA-now this is a rematch as I am sure all reading this know by now. This was a decent match but it really could have been better. In fact these two have had better matches before in the past. The story here was all about if Cena could get the STF on the Big Show. Of course Cena eventually gets the win after he successfully puts the STF on Show. Also it is funny how the commentators sell this match after it was over.

8.[LADDER MATCH]EDGE VS JEFF HARDY-now I have to say from the start that I can not stand Jeff Hardy, never have and never will most likely. Still going in I was pretty sure this was going to be a good match. These two have been in many a ladder match and have looked good in all of them. Like I thought this was one of the best matches of the night. There are all kinds of great spots here but at the same time it is not a crazy spot fest either. There is a cool little twist on the ending that leads to Hardy getting the belt once again. But thankfully CM Punk comes out and cashes in his MITB briefcase to get a title shot right afterwards. After a little back and forth in pin falls Punk hits his GTS for a second time and gets the belt.

This was a good event but certainly not the best ever but I do indeed love the ending here, you also get an interview with Jericho as the special feature.

About this movie


Extreme Rules (2009) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), which took place on June 7, 2009 at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana. This was the fifth show in the lineage of the One Night Stand event, but the first to be referred to as Extreme Rules.[3] It featured talent from the Raw, SmackDown, and ECW brands. There were eight matches scheduled on the event's card, though nine actually took place.[4]

The main event was a Ladder match for the World Heavyweight Championship, which saw Jeff Hardy defeat the reigning champion Edge to win the title. After the match, CM Punk cashed in his Money in the Bank contract, which guaranteed him a title match at the time and place of his choosing, and defeated Hardy for his newly-won title. There were also two other highly-publicized matches; the first was a steel cage match for the WWE Championship between the champion Randy Orton and Batista, as well as a submission match between The Big Show and John Cena. Featured matches on the undercard included a No Holds Barred match between Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho for the WWE Intercontinental Championship, CM Punk versus Umaga in a Samoan Strap match and a Triple Threat Hardcore match for the ECW Championship.

The event had 213,000 buys, up from the One Night Stand 2008 figure of 194,000 buys.[
