This is our DVD review for WWE Extreme Rules 2022. And it’s the latest DVD review for our site. So, let’s see what we think of Extreme Rules 2022!

Extreme Rules 2022 Under Card

The Brawling Brutes vs. Imperium lives up to its stipulation as a Gold Ol’ Fashioned Donnybrook. Indeed, it’s a lengthy, brutal and believable fight that is all about pure physicality, which is always weirdly compelling to watch. Less significant is Ronda Rousey dethroning Liv Morgan as SmackDown Women’s Champion under Extreme Rules. It isn’t a bad match, but some sports go a bit awry. Meanwhile, Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross in a Steel Cage suffers from few fans truly caring about Kross.

Things get back on track with Bianca Belair vs. Bayley in a Ladder match. While it’s hardly among the best Ladder matches ever, this one keeps the crowd invested with some eye-catching high spots. As for Finn Balor vs. Edge, their I Quit match is one hell of a battle. Relying on drama and storytelling in its second half, this perfectly demonstrates why wrestling is more than just fancy high-flying moves. Balor and Edge elicit more audience heat for their finale than most PPV matches do all year. And that’s purely from the story playing out (indeed, Edge remains handcuffed for several minutes).

Extreme Rules 2022 Main Event

The final match of the show sees Seth Rollins battle Matt Riddle inside a Fight Pit. Daniel Cormier of UFC fame is the referee for this unique hybrid of wrestling and MMA. Yet, though it’s a strong effort from both men, something is lacking as it doesn’t feel like a headline attraction. Perhaps that’s partly because fans were more interested in what they knew was coming after the match …

As you may know, Bray Wyatt would return to the company in the closing moments of this show. The White Rabbit mystery came to a head with the conclusion that many suspected but were still highly excited for. Having been released by WWE in July 2021, Wyatt was thrilled to return, and fans popped huge for his reappearance. As for his storyline since then? That is a matter of taste. But based purely on this moment, Bray’s return was a big success and a great way to end the show.


This show is a bit topsy-turvy on the quality scale. It’s never dreadful, but the weaker bouts are a bit of a chore to watch. And the main event itself is a bit of a letdown. But we do get a strong opener, an incredible I Quit match, and a fun Ladder match. And of course, we get Bray Wyatt’s long-awaited return. All of which justifies the decision to revisit this show on DVD.

Overall Rating: 6.5/10 – Okay
