What does the WWE have in store for fans at the last pay-per-view event of the year? The action starts at 7 p.m. ET with the pre-show on YouTube, but the main card begins at 8 p.m. ET.

There are only two ways to see the action live after the free preview. You can contact your local cable provider or you can order the live stream on WWE.com for $44.99.

Will the year go out with a bang for the WWE?


What to Watch For

Awesome Main Event

Even though Dolph Ziggler inherited a spot in the main event because of CM Punk's real-life knee injury, it is still good to see him headline a pay-per-view.

He continues to be one of the organization's best in-ring performers, and he and John Cena should produce a memorable and exciting match for Ziggler's Money in the Bank suitcase.

Cena almost always shines in theme matches, and this one should be no different. There is room for interference from several WWE superstars in this one as well.

Hopefully, the WWE doesn't squander an opportunity to produce an eventful feature match without the champion in action.


The Shield

These three mercenaries—Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns—are the best thing to happen to the WWE in a while.

Seeing them in the ring will be great, but paired against Ryback, it's clear they won't get an opportunity to shine too much. 

I do expect to see a key plot twist take place with them, though. Obviously, this match was put in place to make up for Punk's absence. Six-man tag matches don't usually excite me, but this one has some potential.

We'll have to wait until Sunday to see if creative has come up with a viable way to fill the void.
