As announced on WWE Raw, Zack Ryder vs. Kane will take place on YouTube for the WWE Over the Limit pre-show this coming Sunday. Vince McMahon was so impressed with the Extreme Rules pre-show numbers that we can expect to see regular pay-per-view pre-show matches on YouTube from here on out. WWE is making good money from their new YouTube partnership, which is why we've seen a lot more videos being uploaded to the account lately.
