You've got a brilliant card of eight matches there, but an awful lot of talent left off the card.
In bold are the winners. Lesnar has to beat Cena, absolute has to otherwise any credibility from conquering the streak has gone. The only way around it is if Taker was to interfere, setting up a re-match at say Survivor Series between the two. Come to think of it, 'Taker's last match at Survivor Series would be fitting...
Reigns's situation is parallel to Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania. I remember reading that him versus HHH may be held off until Night of Champions because of the Network situation. There's pros and massive cons there, you only need to ask CM Punk that!
Ambrose and Rollins in a street fight explains itself. Could even get Mick "Always Bitter" Foley involved if they wanted to. I think after this, Ambrose moving onto Orton would be good, but I fear either Ambrose or Rollins may end up tumbling down the card, but crowd support will be in both of their favours.
McMahon and Bella seems to be the rumour, although I really don't like the fact that they are using Bryan while injured. Yes, he's their second biggest draw, but surely it'll dilute everything when he does properly return? Assuming someone is ringside with Steph, Shane would be good, but highly, highly unlikely, as Bryan can attack him without damaging himself.
Rusev and Swagger has to have Hogan involvement. This writes itself. Doesn't have to be any physicality, but just the image of Hogan reluctantly counting to three as Rusev wins means that this should be done. Assuming Hogan's body allows him to do that...
