Match Ratings For WWE Extreme Rules: The Horror Show From Sean Ross Sapp

Kevin Owens defeated Buddy Murphy
6.25/10

  • This is a hell of a match to get added to the slate at the last minute.
  • It seems like Owens has been using the DDT more, and I'm all for that.
  • Kevin Owens has to stop playing with my emotions and teasing the return of the Super Fisherman's Buster. Instead Murphy does a Meteora.
  • Owens ends up hitting an amazing moonsault, too.
  • A stunner finishes off a really good match between these two. The result was never in doubt, but Owens and Murphy made it really good. No surprise there.
  • Let's get Owens a story now.

Smackdown Tag Team Championships
Tables Match
The Artists Collective defeated New Day (c) to win the titles
6/10

  • One of the first great spots is when Big E tries to launch Kofi over the top through an opponent, and a table, but instead they slam the table in Kofi's face.
  • Kofi does an insane Trust Fall, but gets Cesaro Swinged into Nakamura's feet.
  • There are double stacked tables outside the ring. This leads to Nakamura and Cesaro super powerbombing Kofi through them. What a fantastic spot.
  • This should have been an elimination tables match. Break as many of those things as you possibly can.

  • Kabuki Warriors and Alexa Bliss give Nikki a pep talk.
  • Michael Cole and Corey Graves are calling the hell out of this Bayley/Nikki Cross match.
  • Nikki sells me a ticket with her neckbreaker, thanks to Cole's call. She does a lot of great body presses too.

  • That's it. That's the match.

  • Sasha gets thrown DEEP on a German suplex.
  • Asuka misses a dive and eats a knee. This is stealing the show.

  • Drew beats Dolph's ass until Ziggler kicks McIntyre in the nutsack.
  • Ziggler wails away with a chair and does a Fameasser off the announce table to the floor.
  • Ziggler grabs a sleeper. This match is good.
  • The reverse AlabamaSlam is called the BammaSlamma and I'll accept nothing else.

Rating Guide
10- Perfect, 9- MOTY Territory, 8- Excellent, 7- Great, 6- Good, 5- Average to above average, 4- Slightly below average, 3 or below: Poor

Each match starts at a 5 and slides up and down based on entertainment, execution, time, environment, reaction and stakes. The ratings are in no way an indication of a "star rating," which is a completely different system. A standard, non-offensive "TV match" lands at a 5. The gap between 5.75-6 is generally the largest, with anything reaching 6 being recommended viewing.
These are opinions, and incredibly inconsistent ones that may change upon a second viewing, or sitting on the match for a period of time. Don't take them too seriously, and have (and share) your own!
