WWE Extreme Rules PPV was started in the year 2009 and since then this event has been entertaining the fans every year. The 13th edition of this PPV is going to be held in 2021, for which many explosive matches have been confirmed so far.
WWE is the biggest pro wrestling promotion in the world, and there have been many pro wrestlers who have spent their entire careers in this company or have worked for the promotion of Vince McMahon for several decades. Well in this article we will talk about the first event in the history of Extreme Rules PPV.
In 2009, for the first time in Extreme Rules PPV, legendary superstars like Chris Jericho, Batista and Christian performed. While most of the Superstars on that match card have either retired or left the company, there are some names who are still working in WWE.
WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston made his WWE main roster debut in 2008 and has spent most of his career here performing in the storylines of the mid-card division. Although now he has achieved the distinction of becoming the WWE Champion, but at the time of Extreme Rules 2009, he used to be the WWE US Champion.
Kofi is currently a tag team superstar, where he is the tag team partner of Xavier Woods on The New Day, but was a singles superstar when he debuted at the Extreme Rules PPV. In the event he was to defend his title against MVP, Matt Hardy and William Regal in a Fatal-4-Way Championship match. Kingston eventually won via pin after applying his signature move ‘Trouble in Paradise’.
