As we get set for Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2012 on Sunday, there are several electric matchups in store, whether it be the "Money in the Bank" Ladder match or the World Heavyweight Championship Chairs match.

Some of the sport's biggest stars, such as John Cena, Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus, are ready to put on a show we won't soon forget. 

Here's a look at the top matches of the night, including predictions.


Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match (Pinfall or Submission)

Ryback, Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. The Shield

The Shield (aka Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins) have been tearing it up any chance they get, making a name (and a nickname) for themselves in the process.

Ryback, Kane and Daniel Bryan are all huge draws in the WWE, and Ryback and Kane have experience in the main event, but what good is the destruction The Shield has caused if the trio can't win?

I see The Shield living up to their name and proving they have a future.


Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena

John Cena is a 10-time WWE Champion, but he also stands as the only man to lose the Money in the Bank contract match. This is looked at as a possible redemption opportunity for the aging superstar.

On the other hand, the WWE has been pumping up Dolph Ziggler as a top contender and it's hard to imagine the organization pushing Ziggler down the steps when he's so close to a defining moment.

I expect Ziggler to capture this match.


World Heavyweight Championship Chairs Match

Sheamus vs. Big Show

Big Show is obviously a longstanding name in the WWE, but Sheamus has been built up throughout 2012, and it's hard to imagine the WWE all of a sudden pulling the rug out from under him.

I not only expect Sheamus to win, but I expect him to win big while looking unstoppable in the process.


International Championship Match

Wade Barrett vs. Kofi Kingston

This is a fitting match given both Barrett and Kingston are top-level wrestlers who have likewise never asserted themselves for an extended period of time against the top tier.

Barrett's new style is not only intriguing, he deserves to become champion again given some of the shows he's put on. It's a good time for him to capture the International Championship.
