Pre-Show Battle Royal to name No. 1 Contender to U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro

Cesaro, who won the championship gold from Santino Marella during the SummerSlam Pre-Show, says he personifies prestige, and his record since winning his first title in WWE backs up his claim. Yet, the multilingual, Swiss-born Superstars may need more than confidence and Aksana by his side if he hopes to extend his U.S. Title reign past the one-month mark.

On the surface, it appears that the champion, Cesaro, will head into action at a disadvantage. The extra-rugged ex-rugby player will not know who his opponent until moments before Night of Champions takes air. Is there any type of training that can prepare Cesaro for the unknown?

The challenger, however, will not exactly have a clear path to the title match. To win the coveted No. 1 contender spot, the Superstar must first prevail in a every-man-for-himself Battle Royal in which bodies will be flying all over the place. Will the fight to become the No. 1 contender wear out the challenger, making his easy pickings for a fresh Cesaro?

Moreover, the WWE Universe is left to wonder who will fill out the field of the Pre-Show Battle Royal. No names have yet been announced, meaning the opposition could range from a former U.S. Champion to a hungry up-and-comer gunning for his first title. In how many languages does Cesaro know how to say “surprise”?

Catch all the action of Night of Champions, including the all-important Pre-Show at 7:30 p.m./4:30 p.m. PT to see which Superstar will have the opportunity of a lifetime.

I bet it will be Ryder

Seriously Ryback would probably be the only opponent that the crowd would care about if he were to face Antonio at NOC.

It's probably gonna be some nobody who Cesaro beats easily, that's my bet. Ryder is likely. I really hope it's not Santino, we've seen that match too many times and Cesaro always wins.

If RyBack is in it, Cesaro's fucked, obviously. I can't see him carrying a midcard title, though, it wouldn't fit with his image.

Goldberg held the US Title before winning the WCW Title. Ryback is a direct rip-off of Goldberg so it's possible.

I reckon Ryder, Santino or Swagger returns as a babyface, probably Ryder.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

Swagger shouldn't and won't return so soon. It just wouldn't make sense.

Ryback would be cool, but I want the belt to stay on Cesaro for now.. let him run with it. Fuck Santino.

Let it be Ryder for all I care, can't stand him either but he's better than Santino.

I guess, but we're talking about a different guy and a different US title. It's hard to imagine RyBack holding a midcard title, especially the US title, I just can't picture that image, it doesn't seem to fit. Plus, in this day and age, WWE gives almost anybody they care about the world title in a year and a half or less. I almost expect the first title RyBack wins to be the WHC because that's just seemingly what WWE likes to do when Vince finds his new plaything for the next year.

If it's Ryder, I quit wrestling...
I hope to God it's Sandow or Ryback
