Extreme Rules
Indiana, USA

I've tried Extreme Rules a couple times (Less than 10). What caught me off guard was money manipulation is allowed while all other advantageous things are not. Is there a reason for this? Was it discovered later? I think I may try to run it but I am not going to use money manip because that feels off to what it would seem to be.

My opinion:

Money manipulation is not a glitch, because you can get the same result by playing normally. The old route was just to keep saving and resetting until you got +50, then save and try again. That would fall under "regular gameplay".

Also to answer your other question: Yes it was discovered later. It's also why bomb upgrades are permitted, as it came before a time when counting to 10 to get bombs was not known! It's a very old ruleset from what I understand, which is why there are what some might call odd concessions allowed in it.
