________________________________________________________________________

02:38AM – Thank you for joining – we hope you enjoyed the show, or not. Stay safe.

02:36AM – The show lasted two hours and 35 minutes. A lot of talk about, and we will talk about it tomorrow on the Review Revue with Danny, Justin and Brittani Nikole. You can catch it on YouTube prior to Raw.

02:34AM – We thought it was all over, but both men fight in the water, presumably drowning, and then The Fiend appears? “Let Me In”, but Braun doesn’t reappear.. and the show ends…

02:32AM – A hologram of Alexa appears who lures Braun, until he is attacked by Wyatt. The brawl begins – although Braun slams Bray onto a boat which rides off, then rides back, only for Wyatt to reappear from the water. Wyatt tries to drown Strowman, but he reppears gasping for breath.

02:26AM – Braun is chained up to a chair and is being teased with snake ready to attack him. We then see Braun outside near a fire and he is attacked by some henchmen, who Braun beats up, then one is set on fire as Braun laughs hysterically, sounding like Wyatt.

02:21AM – Braun is back ‘home’ at the swamp. Bray is trying to convince Braun to rejoin him as Braun is chained up in a chair, after being taken out by a version of Braun from the Wyatt Family.

02:15AM – It’s main event time. Bray Wyatt vs. Braun Strowman in a Wyatt Swamp Fight. This match is a non-title match and will be a cinematic match.

02:14AM – A SummerSlam promo airs for August 23rd. The event was originally scheduled for Boston, but will now take place at the Performance Center.

02:11AM – CLAYMORE, CLAYMORE, CLAYMORE! Drew McIntyre defeats Dolph Ziggler to retain the WWE Title! Drew flipped up and delivered it straight into the head of Dolph. Drew is fantastic.

02:07AM – Ziggler almost had it. Drew went for the Claymore, but Ziggler hits him with the chair and delivers a Zig Zag. The champ kicks out at 2!

02:03AM – Dolph using his rules to his advantage.

01:58AM – I like it, but I think Drew certainly over comes it, and he comes out strong, ready for Randy Orton at SummerSlam?

01:56AM – Extreme Rules for Dolph Ziggler only, also the title changes if Drew gets counted out or disqualified!

01:53AM – And Dolph chooses…

01:49AM – Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Title is up next. Ziggler will be choosing the stipulation.

01:46AM – An update on Rey. He’s on his way to a local medical facility, but the good news is there is a chance that Rey may maintain his vision according to a WWE doctor who examined him before he left.

01:45AM – And there’s the controversy. Asuka went for the green mist on Sasha but it went into the eyes of the official. Bayley then got involved, stole the referees jersey, and counted the pinfall for Sasha to claim the Raw Women’s Title. Whether that’ll go down as official or not, we will found out.

01:40AM – Back to this outstanding Raw Women’s Title match now. Both women stealing the show as expected.

01:39AM – THERE AS A SHOT OF THE EYE!

01:37AM – Sasha Banks perfected a Frog Splash, but it’s not enough to pick up the win.

01:35AM – A great match here. Not quite sure who will win and take the spoils, expect some controversy!

01:30AM – Our friends from Tru Heel Heat are split on this one, with SP3 choosing Asuka to win, and JJ going for Sasha.

01:26AM – A technical affair between Sasha Banks and Asuka. Two of the best performers in WWE. Sasha has Bayley at ringside, Asuka has Kairi Sane, will we see a repeat of earlier in the night with Sasha getting some help from Bayley to win?

01:19AM – The Wyatt Swamp Fight pre match promo airs, but that is still to come tonight. Looks like it may main event. Asuka vs. Sasha for the Raw Women’s Title is next – this could steal the show.

01:15AM – The action in the match was great, but the believability of it with Mysterio’s eye supposedly coming out was just darn silly.

01:12AMSeth Rollins def. Rey Mysterio as he pushes Mysterio’s eye into the steel steps, exactly how he injured him in the first place a few weeks ago. Rollins vomits as he see’s Rey’s eye out of socket. We don’t see the eye on camera.

01:09AM – A curb stomp on the outside by Mysterio!

01:03AM – Rollins has had the majority of the control here in this Street Fight type brawl. Mysterio slowly getting himself back into it, but still no sign how someone’s eye is going to be extracted!

12:58AM – This has been a brutal war so far. Dominik surely will get involved at some stage?

12:54AM – This match is taking place in the ring, in the Performance Center. How they pull this off, I have no idea.

12:51AM – The only way to win, by extracting one of your opponents eyes. Who thought we’d ever hear that at a WWE event?

12:50AM – It’s Eye for an Eye Match next. Let’s see how this goes down.

12:46AM – MVP comes to the ring with Lashley and declares, via forfeit, he is now the new United States Champion.

12:43AM – That was freaky, but no, the Swamp Fight is coming up later tonight. But it is now revealed Apollo is not competing to defend his US Championship due to not passing his physical. Covid test fail maybe?

12:41AM – We enter the spooky Firefly Fun House as Bray welcomes us back to The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. I think it’s time for the Swamp Fight.

12:38AM Bayley retains the SmackDown Women’s Title in controversial circumstances. Sasha handed her the Boss knuckle duster she wears to Bayley, and Bayley used it to punch Nikki in the ribs, and then delivered her finisher to retain.

12:33AM – Nikki Cross has the champion rattled..

12:28AM – Our friends at Tru Heel Heat made their predictions for tonight’s event. SP3 and JJ think Bayley will retain the title. Make sure you check out Tru Heel Heat, they’re doing some great things!

12:24AM – It’s SmackDown Women’s Title time. Bayley w/ Sasha Banks vs. Nikki Cross w/ Alexa Bliss.

12:20AMCeasro & Nakamura def. The New Day to become the NEW SmackDown Tag Team Champions, as Kofi Kingston is put through TWO tables!

12:14AM – A spear outside of the ring by Big E on Cesaro, almost putting him through the table set-up outside of the ring!

12:13AM – We agree there, Alex. Plenty of carnage here for this match!

12:07AM – After a scary opening video package highlighting tonight’s matches. We’re kicking off with The New Day against Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura in a Tables Match. This match was announced on SmackDown and will be for SmackDown Tag Team Titles.

11:59PM – We’re just moments away from The Horror Show at Extreme Rules!

11:56PM – ⭐️ Wrestling Travel’s WrestleMania 37 Travel Packages are on-sale NOW! You can secure your place for just £199 per person, and be a part of the week long Hollywood extravaganza in the City of Angels! For more information, click here! ⭐️

11:55PM – Dolph Ziggler will be choosing the stipulation for his WWE Championship match with Drew McIntyre. Although, WWE may have made a gaffe earlier in the week, as a graphic appeared to show the match will be a TLC Match. We’ll soon find out. Either way, we don’t think Drew is losing tonight.

11:51PM – Tomorrow night on Raw, we’ve got The Big Show vs. Randy Orton in an Unsanctioned Match. Will The Legend Killer strike again?

11:46PM – Kevin Owens and Murphy delivering on the Kick Off Show. Kevin Owens def. Murphy with a stunner.

11:39PM – A poll is up. Who’s losing their eye tonight?

11:36PM – We have Kick Off match between Kevin Owens and Buddy Murphy about to take place in the Performance Center. This sounds like a fantastic on paper!

11:35PM – For the first-time in WWE history there will be an Eye For An Eye match between Seth Rollins & Rey Mysterio, where the rules are simple; The first person who removes one of their opponents eyes wins the match. 👀

11:31PM – Tonight’s card:
Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler – WWE Championship – TBD

Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt – Wyatt Swamp Fight

Rey Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins – Eye For An Eye Match

11:30pm BST – Welcome to the Wrestling Travel The Horror Show at Extreme Rules LIVE Blog, in association with our friends at Tru Heel Heat. Tonight promises to be a strange night, with a swamp fight and someone’s eye being removed.
