-Ross on hunting with Shawn Michaels: "I had an amazing time this week going on the first hog hunt of my life with the great Shawn Michaels, @ShawnMichaels, and his hunting partner Keith Mark, @KeithMarkmra, on HBK's Texas ranch. This hunt will be televised later this year on MacMillan River Adventures which airs on the Outdoor Network... I was armed with a crossbow which was another first for me. To show you how fortunate that I was, with my first shot at a live animal I scored the hit that we were looking for and the arrow hit the 300 pound hog right behind the shoulder which is actually where I was aiming. The arrow went through the animal and it and its cohorts ran for the brush and for cover. I did not think that I had hit the animal but we found the bloody arrow which traveled through the hog. 

Powell's POV: Ross is already better with a bow than I ever was during archery week in gym class. A gym filled with easily distracted and mischievous teens... what could possibly go wrong? Honestly, I'm amazed that everyone in my class survived archery week.

-Ross on the Extreme Rules main event: "If the Brock Lesnar vs. HHH Steel Cage match doesn't close the PPV, it's going to make whatever follows this Slobber Knocker have to really hunker down to top what I expect to be the most anticipated bout at Sunday's PPV. The physicality in this contest will be prominent and I expect a no frills, in your face, main event."

Powell's POV: It's certainly set up as the featured match on this show regardless of what goes on last. John Cena vs. Ryback got it's share of hype, but the biggest hype on the go-home show was reserved for the cage match.

-Ross on the Extreme Rules pay-per-view: "I'm thinking that WWE's Extreme Rules will be somewhat of a "sleeper" PPV and that it will exceed the expectations of many who seemingly have gotten more into the card the past couple of weeks after recovering from their WrestleMania 29 hangovers. One thing is for sure, Extreme Rules, if one objectively analyzes the card from top to bottom, has the potential for some younger talents or talents looking to regain  needed momentum to have memorable nights. 'Maximizing one's minutes' was never more applicable than it will be for many inside the ring  in St. Louis this Sunday night. Extreme Rules is certainly not a one dimensional PPV and I'm anxious to watch it."

Powell's POV: WWE got me excited about the Extreme Rules show on Sunday with the announcement of the tag title match, the U.S. Title match, and the Chris Jericho vs. Fandango rematch. This is a strong undercard combined with a couple of intriguing matches higher on the card.
