The WWE Extreme Rules Pay Per View is tonight! Extreme Rules will be in Chicago at the Allstate Arena and I will be attending the PPV. There are currently six advertised matches and one pre-show match that can be seen exclusively on YouTube. I will preview each match and give my predictions.

It is not official yet, but it looks like there will be a Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show match at the WWE Extreme Rules Pay Per View on April 29th. I am not really excited about the match. I like Big Show, but he is not one of my favorite in-ring performers. As for Cody, I think he's a good worker but I also think he's overrated. The good thing about Extreme Rules is that every match has a special match stipulation. So despite a bad match-up and a mediocre storyline, they can still have a decent match if they have the right stipulation. What is the right stipulation for this match? I will look at three possible options.

On April 29, 2012, Brock Lesnar will face John Cena at WWE Extreme Rules. If my research is correct, it will be his 23rd Pay Per View match not including United Kingdom exclusive PPVs. I never saw Brock Lesnar compete on PPV during his first stint with the WWE and I think some people might have forgotten those PPV matches because they were so long ago. I decided to post the complete history of Brock Lesnar on PPV in the WWE. This will be a mixture of highlights and complete matches.

The WWE Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View will be in Chicago on April 29. The Chicago crowd has a history of cheering the heel opponents of babyface champions. Some famous examples are WWE Champion John Cena vs. Triple H at WrestleMania 22, Women's Champion Trish Stratus vs. Mickie James at WrestleMania 22, and WWE Champion John Cena vs. CM Punk at Money in the Bank 2011. Other examples include Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio vs. Chris Jericho at Judgment Day 2009 and World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton vs. Christian at Money in the Bank 2011. After Extreme Rules, World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan will be added to that list.
