Bobby Lashley proved that the WWE food chain could be in for a massive upset when he defeated Roman Reigns in a clean finish during their showdown, while AJ Styles managed to avoid becoming a casualty of Rusev by the skin of his teeth. As for that Iron Man match that closed off Extreme Rules? That was a showcase of talent, as Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins ran a marathon that saw the Show-off face a severe disadvantage when the Kingslayer picked up three pins throughout the bout.
With no points on his side of the scorecard, Ziggler had to pull a miracle out of the match after Drew McInTyre cost him another point. That he did, by taking advantage of his DQ point loss to pin the challenger, following up with a Superkick and a Zig Zag to equalise the score. Tied and going into overtime thanks to RAW General Manager Kurt Angle demanding a definitive end to the night, Ziggler’s ally Drew McIntyre provided a timely distraction that saw the Zig Zag locked in again.
One, two and three: Dolph Ziggler was still Intercontinental Champion as Extreme Rules came to an end.
