WWE No Way Out brings an interesting card to the table. It's not the greatest card ever assembled, but there are plenty of surprises that the WWE Universe could be presented.

Here are three upsets on the horizon. 

Big Show defeats John Cena

Big Show returning to the WWE received some criticism because he's not what he used to be. If this was five years ago, his return to the show would have been epic.

It was just ordinary.

But now the WWE has a chance to reignite his return by giving him an opportunity to beat John Cena around in a steel cage.

I like it.

Big Show will somehow pull out a victory over Cena, which will make his return worthwhile. 

Dolph Ziggler defeats Sheamus 

I love how Dolph Ziggler is finally getting his opportunity to prove that he's one of the best in the business. He's been creeping at a level below some of the top-flight superstars in the company for a while now and this is the perfect opportunity to give him a shot.

Why not?

Ziggler has all the tools to become a legitimate superstar in the company. He has swagger, charisma, mic skills, wrestling talent and an overall ability to perform.

Giving him an opportunity to not only compete for the championship but win would be the best decision for WWE going forward.

In a business thirsty for superstars, the WWE has one in place if they give him an opportunity to showcase his tools.

If it doesn't work out, send him down to the middle of the pack and move on. It's worth the risk. 

Cody Rhodes defeats Christian 

When was the last time you were actually excited to see an Intercontinental Championship match? It's been too long for me, but I'm actually excited to see Cody Rhodes and Christian fight. 

We will see quality wrestling, two characters that are worthwhile and two that are fighting for a championship.


Maybe it's just me, but this match should be great to witness. The WWE could go in multiple directions here, but I think Rhodes should be the one who comes out on top.

He's another one of those superstars who deserves to be in a higher position. Maybe he's not Dolph Ziggler quality, but he's of the same brand.

He'll be the one who gets put over here.
