It is arguably the most anticipated match of the year and now some of the faces set to take part in the match have been revealed.

Sami Zayn defeated Sheamus, Dean Ambrose came through the challenge of Dolph Ziggler and Kevin Owens was the winner in a terrific main event against Styles.

We saw two of the competitors who took part in the Intercontinental Championship fatal 4-way at Extreme Rules go head to head as Cesaro took on the champion The Miz.

Cesaro came away with an impressive win over the Intercontinental Champion meaning that he advanced to the ladder match.

Chris Jericho also had the chance to make his week better after a bitter loss to Ambrose in an asylum match at Extreme Rules.

Jericho took on NXT star Apollo Crews who was the victim of an attack by Sheamus prior to the match, Jericho came out on top of that one.

Jericho, Ambrose, Owens, Cesaro and Zayn are the first five competitors announced for the ladder match with two names set to be added to it.

There are a lot of personal rivalries within just this set of five men so who knows what we will see them produce when the WWE gets to Nevada next month.

Full of contenders

One thing the WWE have done a masterful job of already this year is creating a list of superstars who all could be seen as legitimate contenders.

Rather than in previous years where one or two men in the match were clearly just there to make up the numbers, everyone in the match so far this year deserves a main event push.

Ambrose could arguably be viewed as the favourite right now but with Owens and Cesaro both being tipped for a main event push too, it really is anyone's briefcase.
