This Sunday, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is set to air one of its biggest yearly pay-per-views, Survivor Series, from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN.

Thanks to a strong push for the pay-per-view on WWE television and an impressive card, Survivor Series looks to be an entertaining event to watch.

Below are my early match predictions from the WWE Survivor Series lineup card .


Pre-show Match: 3MB vs. Santino Marella and Zack Ryder.

This could be an effective match to get the line crowd and viewers at home warmed up for Survivor Series. WWE should continue to build on the Marella and Ryder tag team partnership, as both could form a popular team for people to watch. Look for Marella and Ryder to grab the victory.


WWE Divas Championship: Eve vs. Kaitlyn.

Although Eve plays a solid heel Divas champion, Survivor Series could finally be the moment Kaitlyn will forever cherish in her career. Her setbacks will finally be put behind her, as Kaitlyn will score the victory over Eve and be crowned the new Divas champion.


WWE United States Championship: Antonio Cesaro vs. R-Truth.

I really enjoy Cesaro's work as a heel figure, and his United States title run has helped him earn a bigger name within the WWE. WWE should play it safe and keep the title on Cesaro instead of risking changing champions and putting the belt on R-Truth's waist.


Team Foley (Mick Foley, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Daniel Bryan and Kane) vs. Team Ziggler (Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow and Wade Barrett).

This match was the potential to be the best one of the night, especially considering how many wrestlers are involved. Look for the baby faces (Team Foley) to nail the victory in this wild match. There may be an intense finish to this one, with action surrounding both inside and outside the ring.


WWE World Heavyweight Championship: The Big Show vs. Sheamus.

After losing his World Heavyweight title to the Big Show, Sheamus looks to recapture it with a win at Survivor Series. However, the Big Show is still fresh into his title reign and WWE should not switch the belt over to Sheamus so quickly.


WWE Title: CM Punk vs. John Cena vs. Ryback

What should the WWE do with this match? Should they keep the title on Punk or go into a different direction? Considering just how well Punk has been as a heel champion, don't expect the WWE to pull the plug on him. Although Cena has not held a title in his hands for a long time and a win for Ryback would boost his momentum, Punk needs to remain champion for now. WWE pulling any switches will dissolve Punk's extraordinary title run.
