There’s not much news. At all. So. Yeah.
Extreme Rules Results – Kalisto defeated Apollo Crews. The Miz won the WWE Intercontinental Championship from Dean Ambrose. Sasha Banks and Rich Swan defeated Noam Dar and Alicia Fox. Alexa Bliss defeated Bayley to retain the RAW Women’s Championship in a Kendo Stick on a Poll Match. Cesaro and Sheamus defeated The Hardy’s for the WWE RAW Tag Team Titles in a Steel Cage. Neville outlasted Austin Aries to retain the Cruiserweight Championship. Samoa Joe defeated Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.
Interesting WWE Title Notes – The Miz is now second all time in Intercontinental Title wins, passing Jeff Jarrett and Rob Van Dam. Miz now has seven, and only Chris Jericho (9) has more. The Hardy’s also hit a milestone themselves, winning and losing the WWE Tag Team titles exactly a decade after the last time they won WWE tag team gold together. Winning the titles on April 2nd and losing them on June 4th each time.
