On Sunday April 29, World Wrestling Entertainment will be holding their annual post WrestleMania PPV known as Extreme Rules.
To date, there are three announced matches with more to come on Smackdown although I won't share those spoilers in this column.
Historically speaking, I think the annual April PPV is a lot bigger than the average fan seems to realize. Whether it's called In Your House (Good Friends, Better Enemies in 1996 & Revenge of the Taker in 1997), Unforgiven (1998), Backlash (1999 to 2009) or Extreme Rules (2010 until present) the matches are usually good because often times we get WrestleMania rematches or sometimes the start of something new.
Here's a tip: Check out Backlash 2000 if you've never seen it. It's one of the ten best WWE PPVs ever with a stacked lineup of great matches from top to bottom. If you have seen it, give it another look to remind yourself of how good it was. Believe me it holds up well over the years.
This year's card may not be as stacked as Backlash 2000 was (the roster isn't as good as it was then), but it is a show worth your time and attention.
I've come up with five reasons why you should be excited about Extreme Rules.
