WWE Survivor Series is always one of the most anticipated pay-per-views of the year, and with the way the current match card looks, 2012 will be no different. 

For the most part, you know what you're getting with these special once-per-month events. Not only will you have a chance to see pretty much every important, entertaining star in the business, but more often than not, a few childhood favorites will show up, too.

Additionally, the energy, buzz and next-level talent during pay-per-views are at an all-time high.

Like always, Survivor Series will have all have all of those aspects, but the uniqueness of the elimination tag-team match puts it over the top.

Let's take a closer look at that match and the others you shouldn't miss.

Survivor Series Elimination Tag-Team Match: Team Foley vs. Team Ziggler

It took a lot of changing, but the teams are finally finalized. And what teams they are.

On Mick Foley's—by the way, whenever Mick Foley is around, it's a must-watch event—team you have The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Kane, Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton


On Dolph Ziggler's side, you have Ziggler, Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett and Alberto Del Rio. 

More yikes.

That's an incredible amount of talent along with tremendous potential for high-flying, fast-paced action. Throw in the fact that the elimination format adds quite a bit of intrigue, and this has early top odds for earning Match of the Night. 


WWE Championship: CM Punk (c) vs. Ryback vs. John Cena

When the best in the business go up against each other for the most-desired belt, it's a fight that you can't miss. 

Now, I understand that there are many differing opinions on whether Ryback deserves to be in this situation, and some of those arguments are fair, but there's no doubt how entertaining it is when he just starts rolling over the biggest and most athletic dudes in the business. 

CM Punk and John Cena, as always, will provide world-class wrestling and top-notch chemistry. Ryback will likely provide a few "oh my God" moments. 

I'll approve. 


World Heavyweight Championship: The Big Show vs. Sheamus

I'm not exactly going to break my back to see this one. The Big Show is incredibly talented for a man his size, but the other two matches on this list are going to a provide many more unforgettable moments than this one.

Still, Sheamus is no joke.

Even if The Show is a little lacking when it comes to in-the-ring entertainment value, Sheamus, without a doubt in my mind, has the skills to carry a match. He's big, he's athletic, he has an array of exciting moves and he's proven in the past that he can put on a good show.

If nothing else, I'm going to watch this one to see how the match is put together and to see if Sheamus can regain the belt he held for so long.
