WARNING, SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
Kalisto (c) vs. Ryback
Of all the matches on the pre-show, this is the only one that has any actual value with the US Championship being on the line. There wasn't much of a storyline to finish since WWE decided to turn Ryback heel on a whim and blandly build this match, but the match pitted two wrestlers against each other with the ability to put on a solid match, so we had hope. Also, Mauro Ranallo!
This match started off with plenty of "Goldberg!" chants. Could that be some foreshadowing for later? There are plenty of rumors floating about...
In terms of the match, there were some decent points, but it was strange. There was a commercial mid-match, which took away from it, and there was no real huge spots that would make this match worthy of WrestleMania. Not a noteworthy match at all.
Match Rating: 4/10
