With Extreme Rules 2018 fast approaching, Rance Morris takes Ricky’s seat this week. He and Clive look at the history of the gimmick PPV, as well as the genre of hardcore wrestling in the company in general. What feuds/wrestlers benefited from the violence the most? What are the best subcategory gimmicks? How diluted has it become since the PG Era? All this, and everything in between, with Ricky’s favourite title: the 24/7 Rules Hardcore Title! A hardcore matches themed quiz brings us out. Although this is a themed show, we do touch on the controversial issues surrounding Kenny Omega/NJPW, and Jay Lethal from the past week.
