Update: PPV betting lines shifted for a few underdogs on Saturday, indicating WWE changed up their booking plans to balance heels and faces winning.

The biggest shift was Dolph Ziggler moving from a solid underdog to a mild favorite against Baron Corbin, setting up his quiet pre-show win.

Also, Ryback moved from a slight favorite to a solid underdog against U.S. champion Kalisto, setting up another pre-show win for a babyface.
