Alberto Del RioThe Storylines

– Alberto Del Rio won the oppportunity of picking the stipulation at Extreme Rules for the Triple Threat Match at Extreme Rules. Ricardo beat Big E and Zeb Colter at the beginning of the night. All I see here is the face getting the chance to pick the match. Neither heel would be a logical choice to pick a match. The face will get a pop from the crowd with his choice. It should be a Ladder Match. Del Rio would defeated Antonio Cesaro later in the night. (I was correct, as Del Rio picked a Ladder Match) This is getting ridiculous. How are we expected to put serious interest in Cesaro, a long running U.S. Champion, now that he is getting buried by "main event" guys. I feel like Cesaro would be a better fit in the main event than many guys. He is strong, athletic, grizzly, and very different than many of the other wrestlers. It is ashame what he is delegated to. He may have more offensive moves than Del Rio tonight, but a loss is a loss. He continues to pile them up.

Grade: C+

-Mark Henry was in a Tug of War contest. He beat Brodus and Tensai, but the finish was inconclusive when he battled Sheamus. This lacked interest on my behalf. I want to see more real physicality between these two, not take a step backwards. They are wrestlers, not middle school boys in a contest. They could've done much more with these two guys.

Grade: C-
