Sheamus vs. Damien Sandow - Pre-Show Match
I was shocked that this was put on the pre-show, but maybe it will draw. I would’ve instantly thought Sheamus would go over, but Sandow might be getting a push. It’s hard to say.
AJ Lee vs. Kaitlyn © - Diva’s Championship Match
I was not surprised by AJ/Big E coming out as the secret admirer. Unfortunately, Kaitlyn's reign hasn’t meant anything, and AJ could be a breath of fresh air for the diva’s division.
Winner: and new Diva’s Champion, AJ Lee
Kane vs. Dean Ambrose © - United States Championship Match
I expected Bryan to be challenging for the U.S. title, but this should be a good bout. Obviously Ambrose isn’t going to drop it so soon, and Kane needs to be challenging for a world title. I’m also predicting that the rest of The Shield will cost Kane the match.
Winner: Kane - by DQ, Ambrose retains
Orton and Bryan vs. Rollins and Roman Reigns © - Tag Team Championship Match
I thought Orton would be paired with Kane, but WWE probably did this to further an upcoming feud between Orton and Daniel. The Shield should and will go over. Orton will probably nail another RKO on Bryan at some point.
Winners: Rollins and Reigns - retain
Curtis Axel vs. The Miz vs. Wade Barrett © - Intercontinental Championship Match
If it wasn’t for the concussion, Fandango would’ve walked out champion. Axel might be taking that spot now. I highly doubt Barrett will retain because his reign has been awful, and he’s lost almost all of his matches. Miz needs something to get him over as a face, but I’m afraid he might come up short. Another reason Miz could win, is for Fandango to take it from him. Of course everyone is predicting Axel will win to keep his “streak” going, but I'm going with the dark horse anyways.
Winner: and new IC Champion, The Miz
Del Rio vs. Ziggler © - World Heavyweight Championship Match
I don’t care for this match. It lacks build, honestly. Del Rio is over with the fans, but Ziggler will hold the title for at least one more month.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler - retain
Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk
I was totally surprised by this announcement! Not once did I think that this would be featured on the pay-per-view. I originally thought that Punk wouldn’t show, and then Axel would replace him, but since he got put in the IC title match, it looks like Punk will be there. WWE can’t advertise him and then not show up.
Winner: CM Punk
Ryback vs. John Cena © - Three Stages of Hell WWE Championship Match
I wasn’t too crazy about the ambulance match stipulation, but now I’m pleased. This should be just as good if not better than their encounter at Extreme Rules. My only concern is the how long the entire match will be. Expect John “The Superhero” Cena to go over in this one.
Winner: and still WWE Champion, John Cena
