It’s that time again. WWE’s yearly blockbuster pay-per-view Survivor Series is on deck.

There are a couple interesting matches on this year’s card. But which will be the biggest draw for the fans at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana and watching across the world at home?

Some might end up being better than anticipated, but here’s an early look at which matches will steal the show on Sunday night.


Honorable Mention:  WWE Divas Championship Match

Eve Torres (C) vs. Kaitlyn

Let’s face it; WWE’s U.S. Championship division leaves much to be desired. The Divas division, though, has a dynamic heel champion in Eva Torres, who will undoubtedly put on a good show Sunday night.

Plus, they’re WWE divas. Even if they don’t deliver in the ring, you get the pleasure of watching two hotties duke it out.


No. 3: World Heavyweight Championship Match

Big Show (C) vs. Sheamus

A rematch between these two is a good way to build some interest in an otherwise underwhelming title division. After all, anything is better than another Sheamus vs. Del Rio PPV match.

Am I right?

Dolph Ziggler may cash in his MITB briefcase and provide this match with an added bonus, but it’ll be a good match nonetheless.


No. 2: Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship

CM Punk (C) vs. John Cena vs. Ryback

It’s hard to put any match with both Punk and Cena in it anywhere else other than in the No. 1 slot. However, that’s what I’m going to do right now.

Punk’s title reign has been impressive, but this match is likely to disappoint because of future plans that may dictate its outcome. If Punk is headed for a Royal Rumble blockbuster against The Rock, it wouldn’t make much sense for him to lose the belt now.


No. 1: Five-on-Five Survivor Series Elimination Match

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

The signature event of the card has the makings of one of the finest Survivor Series matches in recent memory. Talent alone should carry this match as one of the biggest draws and most exciting of the card. I’m putting it here by betting it’ll even outshine the Triple Threat WWE Championship main event.
