Image source: Gamespot

Things got pretty extreme on the night of October 8th when the extreme PLE/PPV rules aired on Peacock. The biggest thing to happen during the night was the much-anticipated return of Bray Wyatt, and yes, he’s got a whole new look. You can get the details of Wyatt’s return to WWE and the results of each Extreme Rules match below.

The show took place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and some of your favorite WWE wrestlers appeared at this very stripped-down event, as there were only six matches on the card. One of the most anticipated matches on the card saw Bianca Belair defending her Raw Women’s Championship against Bayley in a ladder match. Of course, we saw Damage CTRL’s Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai give Belair trouble.

There were also big surprises throughout the night. No, we didn’t see anyone drive a tractor into the ring again, but there have been many rumors that the current White Rabbit mystery happening on WWE programming may be leading to the return of Bray Wyatt; Those rumors were true.

If he’s excited about Extreme Rules in the US and wants to see a replay, he can buy it through his satellite or cable provider, or watch it on Peacock’s streaming service. And while Peacock has a free tier, you won’t be able to watch the WWE event through it. You’ll need a Premium ($5/month, with ads) or Premium Plus Peacock ($10/month, no ads) account. Regardless of which level you choose, there will be some WWE-related announcements throughout the show.

There are several ways to see Peacock. In addition to watching on mobile and PC, you can stream the service on Amazon Fire devices, Android TV, Apple TV, LG Smart TV, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Roku, Samsung Smart TV, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xfinity and more.

The Brawling Brutes vs. Imperium (six-man tag team match at Donnybrook)

The Brawling Brutes win by pin.

Mat: Finally, the Goode Ol’ Fashioned Donnybrook Match we’ve all been waiting for. I hope it’s as shocking as a Chicago Street Fight…or a Hollywood Stage Fight. Listen, we knew exactly what we were getting into with this match, regardless of what it was called. It’s a bunch of guys fighting each other.

This game has no right to be as good as it is or to last as long as it was. I just needed to warm up the crowd. However, we did have one of the most memorable matches in WWE history that was tremendous fun. I’m a little disappointed that the barrels didn’t get knocked over or rolled towards someone, but this was a balls-to-the-wall battle that was a lot of fun to watch. (Chris mentioned to me that the barrels being thrown at someone were done in All Out. But, I don’t care. I want it back.)

Anyway, Shane McMahon is the White Rabbit, right?


Chris: Why was there a picture of Sheamus’s grandfather at ringside with the barrels and stuff? Michael Cole pointed out that Imperium destroyed it, but I blame Sheamus for putting it there. Regardless, this is the perfect way to kick off what seems like a show full of explosive fights because it perfectly sets the tone for a wild night of action. I love how this became a Sheamus showcase. He was depressed, then he came back and destroyed everyone in his way, including Gunther.

What’s especially cool about this match is that it’s essentially a street fight and the ringside area was littered with potential weapons, but the action was largely just these six people beating each other up. Don’t get me wrong, there were still some weapons, especially down the stretch of the match, but a lot of the physicality was done with fists that made both teams look even stronger.

It also helps that the feud between Brawling Brutes and Imperium is still very interesting. We want to see these people beat each other up. And the right team, the Brutes, won here. This keeps Sheamus alive as a contender for the Intercontinental Championship and shows that the Brutes are not to be messed with.

Liv Morgan (c) vs. Ronda Rousey

(Extreme Rules Match for the Smackdown Women’s Championship)

Rousey wins via submission.

Mat: So the build up to this match was Rousey calling Morgan “Hooters Barbie” a lot. But isn’t that a bit redundant? Now, I haven’t stepped foot in a Hooters since literally my 18th birthday way back in 2000, but as far as I can remember, you had to look like Barbie to work there. That whole place was originally built on pretty women who worked there. It’s like calling someone a “topless Chippendale dancer” as an insult.

This feels like Morgan’s first PPV/PLE match where she truly feels like a champion in the way that she works in the ring and fights a former champion, Rousey. There’s a lot of confidence in her now, and I loved seeing Morgan have some big moments of dominating Rousey. I don’t care about Rousey’s win, but I really like the ending here. It doesn’t make Morgan look weak, as she passed out, didn’t tap, and we have a heels championship through Rousey.

Anyway, Bo Dallas is the White Rabbit, right?


Chris: Ronda’s way of proving that she’s better than Liv Morgan is to shame her by calling her “Hooters Barbie,” which is the most lame insult of all time. But let’s be honest, Ronda has never been a good conversationalist.

But let’s talk about this real match. I really get that Ronda avoided the guns at first, while Liv tried to use them. I loved that Liv used the fire extinguisher and that Ronda finally got down to business. Still, the problem with the bat is that if it were a real baseball bat, all the bones in it would break, which I can only assume it isn’t. Swap out the bat for a kendo stick and you’ll have a much more believable moment.

Still, this was one of the most memorable outings for these two women in recent memory. It’s not often you see Ronda pushed as a competitor, but her matches with Liv have, which makes Liv look even stronger as a champion. You can label them casual wins all you want, she has done what few in WWE have been able to.

I don’t think Ronda should have won here because it’s more interesting to keep the title for Liv, but not all of us get what we want. Whatever the case may be, the important thing going forward is for WWE to acknowledge everything Liv overcame during her reign and keep her in the spotlight to set her up for another chance.
