CHICAGO – A tooth-and-nail battle between Edge and Chris Jericho ended in a double count-out, leaving no No. 1 Contender to newly-crowned World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger. And in CM Punk's hometown, Rey Mysterio accepted Punk's challenge for a match at Extreme Rules. If Punk loses, he will shave his head!Edge vs. Chris Jericho ended in a Double Count-out
At WrestleMania, Edge battled Chris Jericho for the World Title. But on this night, both veterans were fighting for a chance to face newly-crowned World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger at Extreme Rules.
After a long, gritty battle it looked like The Ultimate Opportunist had Jericho where he wanted, as he stood poised to deliver a Spear. However, the former champion leaped over Edge to avoid the devastating maneuver. Afterward, Jericho dashed out of the ring. Edge wasn't far behind.
The fight continued outside the ring, spilling out into the WWE Universe. Undaunted by the ref's 10-count – which ended the bout – both Superstars continued to slug it out. The battle finally came to an end back inside the ring, where The Rated-R Superstar finally decimated Jericho with a venomous Spear.Rey Mysterio accepted CM Punk's challenge to a match at Extreme Rules
After WWE NXT Rookie Darren Young refused to accept the Straight Edge lifestyle, he suffered a beating at the hands of CM Punk, Luke Gallows and Serena. But just when it looked like Young was going to become Straight Edge – whether he liked it or not – Rey Mysterio stormed the ring to break up the indoctrination. After clearing the ring of The Straight Edge Society, Mysterio passionately accepted Punk's challenge to a match at Extreme Rules – also vowing to shave Punk's head and put an end to The Straight Edge Society!World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger def. John Morrison
After being mocked by John Morrison for how he talks, the new World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger launched a vigorous offense. Things came to an end for The Friday Night Delight when the champion swept his legs from under him as he stood on the ring apron, sending him crashing hard to the arena floor. The "All-American-American" then pushed his defenseless body back into the ring and crushed him with a Gutwrench Powerbomb.Shad Gaspard says this is "my time"
If there was any doubt whether Cryme Tyme is no more, big Shad Gaspard removed it with another vicious beating of his former partner, JTG. Shad advised the WWE Universe to "take what you deserve" and "don't let people – like JTG – stand in your way."Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre def. Matt Hardy (Non-Title)
For the second week in a row, Matt Hardy paid a painful price for tangling with the Intercontinental Champion, who still holds the distinction of having only one official loss. After smashing Hardy face-first into the exposed steel ring apron, McIntyre finished him off with a devastating Double Underhook DDT to the arena floor, leading to an easy pinfall.The Hart Dynasty def. The Dudebusters
Just like they did last week on WWE Superstars, The Hart Dynasty picked up a win over Caylen Croft & Trent Barreta. It was big David Hart Smith who ended the bout when he made Barreta tap out to the Sharpshooter.Dolph Ziggler put Josh Mathews to sleep
