It is not often that a WWE live event is hyped up so much, but this Saturday's Madison Square Garden special has certainly gained a lot of interest.

Although there has been a significant amount of build-up to this WWE special, the confirmed card for the night has rather unfortunately, left a lot to be desired.

The final card for the night is as follows:

Brock Lesnar vs Big Show

Rusev vs Dolph Ziggler

Randy Orton vs Sheamus

Seth Rollins vs John Cena (Steel cage match for the United States Championship Title)

Kevin Owens vs Chris Jericho (Intercontinental Championship Title match)

The New Day vs The Dudley Boyz (Tag Team Championship match)

In summary, half of the confirmed matches for the night have huge potential and are highly anticipated, whilst the rest seem somewhat wasteful.

Exciting matches

The more interesting matches see titles on the line, but this is not the only reason these bouts are favoured when compared with the rest on the card.

Not only will WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins be looking to regain the US Title against John Cena, he will be hoping to do so in what is set to be an enthralling steel cage match.

In addition, anything we have seen recently from either The New Day or The Dudley Boyz either separately or together as of late has been noteworthy, meaning this encounter is sure to follow suit.

Although given his part-time WWE schedule Chris Jericho is unlikely to overcome Kevin Owens for the Intercontinental Championship belt, these two men will undoubtedly put on an impressive display and work well against each other on Saturday night.

Big difference

In stark contrast to this, the other half of the Madison Square Garden card sees an unlikely and seemingly unwanted opponent for Brock Lesnar in the Big Show.

Throughout 2015, whenever Lesnar has graced the screens of WWE programming, he has done so in memorable style and has made sure he is the focus at every given opportunity.

With this in mind, why WWE have gone with the Big Show as his challenger for this live event is more than questionable.

Gaining a win over The Giant is something which is somewhat common for the big names on WWE's roster of late, and when The Beast achieves this on Saturday night, he will reiterate just that.

Aside from this match, WWE appears to have used two typical filler-style bouts by pitting Rusev against Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus against Randy Orton once again.

With this event being a special event as opposed to a pay-per-view event, filler matches like this are more expected, but something a little different would not have been so difficult to produce.

With this in mind, however, aside from one or two, the outcome of the matches for Saturday evening are not necessarily easy to call, which will certainly make for an exciting event.
