World Wrestling Entertainment is continuing in its business plan to give away a match for free on a pre-show to a pay-per-view (PPV) event to help sell the show just a half hour before it goes down. This time, they'll do so with a Kane vs. Zack Ryder match as the lead-in to the Over the Limit PPV taking place this Sun., May 20, 2012, at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.
As per usual, the show will air on WWE.com, Facebook and YouTube.
Kane and Ryder are a convenient pairing if for no other reason than they won't help sell the actual PPV by their presence on it but are big enough to raise awareness by having a match just before it. Plus, they actually have a feud that has been going on for months now, though not in the traditional "have a match every week" sense.
It's actually impressive that WWE has managed to continue the issues between these two for as long as they have without stepping on their own stories.
Take a look at the complete updated Over the Limit match card line up after the jump.
