- The steel cage match with Brock Lesnar and Triple H has been planned all along, even before WrestleMania 29, but it was moved up to Extreme Rules because of CM Punk taking time off. The match may have been planned for SummerSlam or a later pay-per-view.
- There has been a lot of head-scratching over the way Antonio Cesaro has been booked lately, from a series of losses to dropping the United States Title after previously being booked strong.
It’s said that Cesaro has not done anything to be in WWE’s doghouse and isn’t considered to be. Cesaro’s booking was explained by a source as just the way WWE creative and production changes from week to week these days. WWE officials really are going back and forth from week to week on who they want to push and who they don’t want to push.
