All in all, the matches were good. I enjoyed how the show built The Shield and made them look powerful moving into the Extreme Rules pay-per-view. Cesaro got the clean win over Swagger and this allowed him to keep his momentum coming out of WrestleMania. Bray Wyatt cut another great promo and built the suspense for his cage match against Cena at Extreme Rules all the while establishing himself as one of the best anti-heroes the WWE has seen in the last decade. The crowd is really behind the Wyatt Family.
