- Going into WWE Extreme Rules, there had been talk of doing something with a gimmicked ring in either the Strap Match or the Steel Cage Match. This was brought up in a meeting the week before the pay-per-view. Presumably, the idea was nixed when they decided to go with the breakaway wall gimmick for the finish of the Ryback vs. John Cena match.
