It's disclosure time again. If you are not a fan of spoilers, there is no need to read any further.

It appears the WWE truly loves to spoil its own storylines of late, as WWE.com reported the following:

It took not one, but two monster KO Punches to keep Sheamus down for the count at WWE Hell in a Cell. Just imagine what it will take this time to stop the even hungrier Celtic Warrior from reclaiming his championship gold from The World’s Largest Athlete.

World Heavyweight Champion Big Show will put his new title on the line against Sheamus at Survivor Series, just weeks after the pair of powerhouses’ first-time encounter at WWE Hell in a Cell 2012.

Apparently, the match was added during Tuesday night's SmackDown tapings, and the company couldn't wait to break the news. I am uncertain if the match was announced at the event or if WWE.com got the exclusive.

Either way, it appears "The Celtic Warrior" will get a shot to win back the World title. I, for one, am not entirely shocked by this announcement, as it seems like a no-brainer for Sheamus to get a rematch.

So, with the announcement of this match and Team Punk vs. Team Foley, it appears the "Thanksgiving tradition" is alive and well. Which is great news since Vince McMahon considered renaming it almost two years ago due to poor buyrates.

Now, the WWE just needs to put John Cena in a solid storyline or feud, and it should be pretty much all set for the card.  Don't get me wrong: Cena is not the end-all, be-all. But he has definitely proven his worth during his injury hiatus.

Overall, I can't imagine the WWE dropping the ball after last year's show proved successful when planned right. In the end, we will have to wait and see what the WWE has in store for us next month.
