Kane vs Dean Ambrose is easily predictable. Nobody thinks that Kane is going to win the US Title and rightfully so. With the dissolution of his tag team with Daniel Bryan, this should set up the next step in Kane's career. For Dean Amrbose, Kane is the next step to main eventing, as Kofi Kingston was the first rung on the ladder, a clean win over Kane will really get the ball rolling for Ambrose.
The tag team title match between Rollins and Reigns vs Orton and Bryan can only end in one way: Bryan or Orton turns on the other. Ideally Orton should turn heel (where he is at his best) and Bryan should turn full-fledged face (where he is at his best). The WWE has botched these moves before, but Orton has grown stale as a face and Bryan is most likely the most over person in wrestling right now, it just makes sense to have them to make that turn. Orton and Bryan are capable of having some great matches, and Rollins Reigns can get another big win over two former world champions. This seems like a no-brainer, but the WWE has screwed stuff like this up before, which will always make it interesting.
For the first time in what seems like forever, the WWE put some actual effort into a diva's storyline. With AJ trolling Kaitlyn, their feud as reached a tipping point which will finally amount to a title match between the champion Kaitlyn and the challenger AJ Lee. I really think that AJ has to win this match. AJ is only woman the WWE has that makes a significant difference and with her boyfriend has the World Champion, it makes a great deal of sense to crown her as the Diva's champion. Kaitlyn is more or less expendable, if the WWE wanted to book Alicia Fox, Natayla, one of the Bellas, etc. the same way as Kaitlyn they would be just as relevant as she is. AJ Lee is really indispensable, making her the most valuable Diva in the WWE and the rightful champion.
The preshow match between Sheamus and Sandow is just something that the WWE is doing to keep Sheamus relevant while they try to come up with his next move. It is cool to see Sandow getting a lot of attention because he is a great performer, but this will be a quick match ending in a brogue kick and a resounding victory for Sheamus.
Overall I like the card a lot more than I did for Extreme Rules. There are some weak spots on the card and I think that the main event is really lacking, but the strong undercard with Punk vs Jericho, Ziggler and The Shield should be enough to carry this ppv into the good graces of most fans.
