Thunder’s Thoughts: Extreme Rules 2012

Pre-Show: Santino retains the US Title by defeating Miz with the cobra – I was hoping Miz would get the title back. I’m not sure what direction WWE plans to take with the Miz, but right now it looks like he’s just going to work random matches on random shows. This was a good way to get the crowd hot before the show started and have a face get the win. Good for Santino.

So far, the WWE has booked Lesnar really well and his return hasRead More
