WWE’s “Extreme Rules” pay-per-view proved to be, well, extreme. Kane, aka “the devil’s favorite demon,” fell through a table lit on fire, and Bray Wyatt introduced “Little Johnny,” a creepster of a kid with the electronically altered voice of man. But the most extreme bit that happened during Sunday’s three-hour broadcast may have been when Russia President Vladimir Putin’s face splashed across the Titantron.

Was this CNN or the WWE Network? Who cares. It was awesome. This next-level geopolitical trolling came from Lana, “the Ravishing Russian,” who dedicated the match of her client, the giant Bulgarian Rusev, to the much-maligned Russian president. She used the kind of melodramatic language that makes pro wrestling more than a display of athleticism, but a full theatrical production.

Here’s what Lana, embodied by American model and actress C.J. Perry, said:

“Tonight we dedicate this match to the man that makes fools out of all you Americans; tonight we dedicate this match to the man that I respect more than any other man; He is my role model; he is my idol — the president of Russia!”

That’s when Putin’s expressionless, larger-than-life visage appeared and Big-Brothered the arena, which echoed with an impressive chorus of boos. That heat would continue as Rusev, now a resident of Russia, according to the story line, went on to crush his opponents, R-Truth and Xavier Woods.

The match, however, won’t be what this night will be remembered for. It’s Putin, the WWE’s best new heel.

‘The Ravishing Russian’ Lana is introduced, and she makes her way out to speak a little bit of Russian, dedicate tonight to the ‘most powerful man in the world’, Russian president Vladamir Putin, and introduce Alexander Rusev.

Alexander Rusev vs. R-Truth and Xavier Woods

Truth dedicates this match to the US and the two men hit the ring. Woods runs right into a huge kick and both are sent to the outside. Rusev launches Truth into the barricade, then sends Woods crashing into the ring apron. Rusev tosses Truth into the ring and belly to belly suplexes Woods on the floor. The ref finally rings the bell and Rusev goes on the attack, punching and kicking Truth in the corner.

Rusev sends Truth crashing into the corner hard, then follows with a big back splash. Rusev looks down on Woods, still laid out on the outside. Rusev runs right into double boots from Truth in the corner. Truth is able to cartwheel away from Rusev and hits a big spinning kick, and running clothesline in the corner. Truth connects with a missile dropkick from the middle rope, ducks a clothesline, and hits a spinning back elbow and axe kick, but Rusev won’t stay down for three.

Rusev catches Truth in mid air, and goes for a fall away slam, but Truth lands on his feet. Rusev knocks him down with a huge spinning back heel kick. Trainers check on Woods on the outside. Rusev takes Truth down with a spinning, standing black hole-like slam. Rusev clamps on the camel clutch, and Truth is forced to tap out.

Winner: Alexander Rusev

While making their way to the back, Lana points at Woods and tells Rusev to crush him. Rusev picks up Woods and plants him with a fall away slam on the floor before leaping up and screaming out.

The match starts and Rusev forces Truth into the corner with some knees. Truth slaps Rusev, but Rusev goes back on offense with kicks. R-Truth gets in a few hits, but Rusev lifts him for a powerslam. Truth jumps down and ducks a clothesline, hitting a set of spin kicks.

Rusev leaves the ring and takes out Xavier Woods who was talking trash. R-Truth tries for a springboard move, but Rusev catches him on the outside, attacking him and sending him in.

Joey Styles: WINNER: Alexander Rusev. ALSO WINNERS: All of us because we get to see Lana.

Howard Finkel: If Alexander Rusev was a stock, I would be in a buy mode. He has more than impressed me thus far in his WWE tenure. Although more than capable opponents, the Truth/Woods combo will endure a long night at the office this Sunday, courtesy of Mr. Rusev. WINNER: Alexander Rusev

Ryan Murphy: A more interesting prediction to make here might be “How many limbs will R-Truth & Xavier Woods still have intact after Alexander Rusev is through with them?” Sure, the duo did a decent job of fending off The Bulgarian Brute on Raw, but when Lana commands her cyborg to “crush!” at Extreme Rules, it’s going to be a horror show. WINNER: Alexander Rusev

Bobby Melok: Despite their best efforts, R-Truth & Xavier Woods have not been able to make a dent in the seemingly impenetrable armor of Alexander Rusev. The Bulgarian Brute has hurled the two around the squared circle with ease over the past few weeks in singles bouts. Though he’s at a disadvantage in this Handicap Match, Rusev will relish the opportunity to dish out twice as much punishment in the same amount of time. WINNER: Alexander Rusev

John Clapp: The possibility of Alexander Rusev making Truth & Woods tap simultaneously to a two-for-one Accolade should not be ruled out. Against most Superstars in a Handicap Match, Truth & Woods would be the favorites. Not here. WINNER: Alexander Rusev

Alexander Rusev: 5, R-Truth & Xavier Woods: 0
