The general consensus backstage at Extreme Rules was that the show was a success and came off well on television. The CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho Chicago Street Fight and the Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena matches in particular received rave reviews.
There was a lot of talk about Cena going over Lesnar in the main event, with many thinking that Brock Lesnar should not have lost his first match back in WWE. Lesnar is a very unique special attraction as a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and the argument against him losing to Cena is that now he could be perceived as “just another superstar.”
That said, WWE management loved the energy in the arena for the Lesnar vs. Cena match and it definitely came off like a special match.
As for the CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho, it’s expected that their feud will continue.
