-- If you don’t believe plans change within WWE on a regular basis, the t-shirt being sold for Extreme Rules last night in Chicago listed the Intercontinental Title Match between Cody Rhodes and Big Show as “Cody’s Choice: Tables Match.”

This indicates that before the shirts were printed, the plan was for Cody to pick the stipulation of a Tables Match. Sometime between then and Friday’s SmackDown, WWE officials came up with the idea of the Roulette Wheel that we saw on the pre-show.

Original plans also called for Kharma to squash Nikki Bella in a surprise return. They went with Layla at the last minute. As noted late last night, Kharma was backstage at the event despite her storyline tweets stating otherwise.

-- The general consensus backstage last night at Extreme Rules was the pay-per-view came off well. The CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena matches received rave reviews.

There was a lot of chatter about Cena going over Lesnar in the main event. The feeling among most was that WWE should have waited before having Lesnar lose because getting a dominant former UFC Heavyweight Champion back on your roster doesn’t happen often and now Lesnar appears as just another talent on the roster that has lost to Cena.
