Chris Jericho will go in a singles match against CM Punk before a triple threat match featuring Wade Barrett, Curtis Axel and the Miz for the Intercontinental Championship.
The Shield will then face off against Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton in a tag team match for the tag team championship. Kane is in action against Dean Ambrose for the United States Championship in the next match.
The final two see Kaitlyn face AJ Lee for the Divas Championship before Alberto Del Rio challenges Dolph Ziggler for the World Heavyweight Championship.
