Must-See Match: Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar in a Steel Cage Match
John Cena and Ryback's last man standing match may headline the show, but it's the steel cage match between Lesnar and Triple H that you don't want to miss.
These are two proud legends of the business going at it in a rubber match. After Lesnar beat Triple H at SummerSlam and Triple H exacted his revenge at WrestleMania, this is sure to be an awesome match with both men's pride on the line.
The steel cage should add an extra element of brutality, as well as an added element of intrigue.
Neither man would really want to end this rivalry by losing cleanly so we can expect this to be pretty even throughout. However, it makes more sense for Lesnar to pull out the win as he's the one that has more time left in the ring.
Superstar to Watch: Dean Ambrose
This could be a huge night for The Shield. All three members are going for a title.
While Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins are likely to continue their momentum as tag team partners, Ambrose will have his chance to establish himself as a singles threat in a United States Championship match against Kofi Kingston.
Since The Shield can't stay intact forever, this could be a huge night for Ambrose's future with the company. Kingston is a great athlete and is capable of putting on great matches. If Ambrose rises to the occasion and wins the title, it could be a launching point for his singles career.
Ambrose could emerge as the biggest winner of the night.
