The Extreme Rules pay-per-view is now in the books, and it's safe to say that the majority of WWE fans were left underwhelmed.
It never really promised to deliver a memorable night, primarily since it was acting like a 'filler' event heading into the much more prominent SummerSlam show next month.
Still, there were some matches on offer which did gauge enough interest to make it an event at least worth tuning into.
Kevin Owens proved just how much of a lunatic he is with his ridiculous cage spot during his victory against Braun Strowman in their steel cage match.
The B Team left as the new RAW Tag Team Championships by defeating The Deleters of Words in a feel-good moment.
There was also the brilliant Ironman main event where Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler went into overtime, with The Showoff leaving Pittsburgh with his Intercontinental Championship.
However, PW Insider has now revealed that WWE ended up making several significant late changes which change the whole shape of the pay-per-view.
According to WrestlingNews.co, the source first revealed that Hulk Hogan didn't meet with Vince McMahon as the latter was not even at the show.
Instead, Vince remained in constant communication with officials, but it was Triple H and Billy Kidman working at the gorilla position, but Vince still made some big changes to the event.
BIG LAST-MINUTE CHANGES
Initially, Bobby Lashley vs. Roman Reigns was scheduled to be the main event.
However, WWE decided against that based on the fear of how the fans would react.
Instead, Ziggler vs. Rollins ended up going on last. However, the original plan for their Intercontinental Championship match was that they were going to open the show and set the tone, rather than go on last.
It's being reported that the final hour of Extreme Rules was originally scheduled to feature the WWE Championship match between AJ Styles and Rusev, the RAW Women's Championship match between Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax before Lashley and Reigns would end proceedings.
The call was made relatively late to switch the order around and give the Ironman match the main event slot, something WWE officials wanted heading into Extreme Rules.
In the end, it was a smart move on WWE's part, even if the Pittsburgh crowd wasn't too receptive towards Ziggler and Rollins.
