WWE Extreme Rules 2018: 10 Things We Learned

Extremely disappointing...

WWE

WWE tried to get extreme for their annual Extreme Rules PPV, but unfortunately, the event failed to live up to the hype. With bizarre booking decisions and over-the-top comedy moments, Extreme Rules quickly turned into a parody of everything that the event was supposed to stand for. As a result, we were left extremely underwhelmed.

But the show did teach us a number of intriguing things about the company's near-future. While certain superstars are destined to continue their feuds, others may finally experience some well-deserved greatness. And with SummerSlam on the horizon, the WWE landscape could see some long-awaited changes.

What that in mind, let's take a look at everything we learned from the less-than-stellar event.

10. There Is More To The B-Team Than Meets The Eye

Before Extreme Rules, few of us took The B-Team seriously, and nobody could really blame us for that. For the past five years, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel have been positioned as nothing more than enhancement talent. And in that time, the closest they have ever gotten to legitimate storylines has been as The Miz's bodyguards in The Miztourage. So, when The Miz went to SmackDown, it was pretty clear that Dallas and Axel would return to jobbing.

Even when they officially become The B-Team, we just thought they would be fodder for Raw Tag Team Champions Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy, but the unlikely duo shocked the world at Extreme Rules when they defeated them to win the Raw Tag Team Championships. It was a jaw-dropping, but somewhat pleasant surprise. This victory proves that there is more to the B-Team than we initially thought and perhaps now, Axel and Dallas will finally get the chance to show what they're capable of.

With Raw's tag team division in desperate need of new life, perhaps The B-Team could be the unexpected force that reinvigorates it?
