Extreme Rules didn't happen the way Kevin Dunn wanted.
The WWE executive was particularly unhappy with a couple of spots in the Asuka vs. Sasha Banks Raw Women's Championship match, according to backstage sources within WWE. As reported on Fightful Select recently, we detailed what upset Dunn:
Extreme Rules was high quality for WWE, but not everything went so smoothly, we're told. During the Sasha Banks and Asuka match, there were some production snafus that set Kevin Dunn off. We weren't told of specific instances, but Dunn was upset that cameras were catching Bayley in spots where they weren't supposed to. When asking around, we were told it wasn't significant, but enough to get Dunn to shout at people over it for not protecting talent.
Dunn has been with the company for decades and has long been outspoken, with some of his thoughts coming to light via the Tough Enough series. Among them was his comment that John Morrison wouldn't be committed to wrestling. His methods have drawn the ire of many who have worked with him, but the praise of others. He rarely appears on WWE programming, outside of a couple of appearances here and there.
