In a night that will be spot heavy, it will be hard for one match to stand out. Even though it is early, this one moment as already STOLEN THE SHOW.
This was a daring spot from Sasha Banks!

However, there was something even CRAZIER that happened. Extreme Rules is in Baltimore, Maryland, Rich Swann’s hometown. It is a bit of a running theme in WWE that people lose in their hometowns. So when Rich got the pin after a terrific Phoenix Splash, people were flabbergasted.
Wait. Somebody just won a match in their hometown? Congrats Swann #ExtremeRules
