WWE Extreme Rules 2015 Recap #WWE #ExtremeRules

By @B_Rock1978

Time to get EXTREME! Well WWE's way of getting extreme, anyway. It's another edition of Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. WWE Extreme Rules was live on the WWE Network, for the surprisingly low low price of $9.99. And for the record, I'm still waiting for those checks in the mail from Triple H, for promoting the WWE Network in my recaps.

This year's WWE Extreme Rules took place live at the Allstate Arena, in Chicago, Illinois. This is the second time in Extreme Rules existence that it's taken place at the Allstate Arena. And no, CM Punk was not at the pay per view. Punk is done with WWE and the fan boys still think he'll return one day. Maybe he will, but it wasn't tonight.
