WWE had one more chance to sell fans on Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans as legitimate threats to Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch.
On the final episode of Raw before Extreme Rules, WWE could not get out of its own way. After a weird mixed match tag match between Rollins and Lynch versus Andrade and Zelina Vega was saddled with an elimination stipulation, a post-match attack occurred.
First, Corbin completely no sold Lynch’s punches in the worst possible way. Then Evans clearly whiffed on her strikes thrown at Lynch.
Overall just not good stuff from either Corbin or Evans. Already facing an uphill climb in the win-loss column, WWE has done Corbin and Evans no favors in building up their credibility as challengers to the company’s two biggest titles.
Any reason to doubt Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins don’t walk away winners this Sunday at Extreme Rules?
