Survivor Series 2010 Previews/Predictions: Change Is in the Air

Justin YoungAnalyst INovember 20, 2010

Survivor Series 2010 will probably be the biggest event of the year, as so much is at stake. Out of the eight matches, six are championship bouts, and one is a traditional Survivor Series match. But the biggest question concerns the main event, which decides the fate of John Cena. Will he stay true to the WWE, or will he give Barrett the title to save his career?


Match 1: John Morrison vs. Sheamus

After the events on Raw the last couple of weeks, I expect this to be a show-stealer. I don't think it'll last too long, but the high-flying moveset of JoMo and possibly a distraction by Santino will prevail over the brute strength of the Celtic Warrior.

Winner: John Morrison by pinfall


Match 2: Intercontinental Championship: Dolph Ziggler vs. Kaval

Both competitors look pretty strong, and next to the main event, I think this is one that is completely unpredictable, especially with the falling out between Ziggler and Vickie. Somehow, I expect Vickie and Dolph to reconcile during the match, helping him retain over the NXT Season Two winner.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler (retains title)


Match 3: United States Championship: Daniel Bryan vs. Ted DiBiase

I'm actually really glad to see the Fortunate Son get a shot at something other than a Tag Team Title. In fact, I predicted earlier this year he would win singles gold (link at bottom) by the end of the year. I'm actually happy they got rid of the Million Dollar belt, as it just proved to be the fuel for a feud.

But with real gold on the line, despite Bryan's speed and prowess, DiBiase and Maryse are just too tough of a combo to overcome. Following a distraction from the Canadian beauty, DiBiase hits Dream Street to slay the American Dragon.

Winner: Ted DiBiase (new U.S. champion)


Match 4: Handicap Match for the Unified Divas Championship: Lay-Cool vs. Natalya

That match between McCool and Natalya last month kept bringing to mind the first Austin Powers movie, because, "Who throws a shoe? Honestly." Now that outside interference from Lay-Cool is out of the question, I expect Natalya to bring Divas gold to the Hart family. I'm looking for miscommunication between Lay-Cool, as McCool accidentally takes out Layla, then submits to the Sharpshooter.

Winner: Natalya (new Divas Champion)


Match 5: Tag Team Championship: Justin Gabriel/Heath Slater vs. Santino Marella/Vladimir Kozlov

I never thought I'd see this at a pay-per-view. Maybe, with it being at one of the "Big Four" PPVs, it will be a good matchup. I know it seems like a squash match, especially since Santino is involved, but the odd couple of Marella and Kozlov have actually done well lately. Expect Nexus to get involved in some form or fashion, and once Slater falls victim to the Cobra, Nexus will get a major chewing out from Wade.

Winners: Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov (new Tag champs)


Match 6: World Heavyweight Championship: Kane vs. Edge

I think the angle between these two is actually better than the Kane-Undertaker angle. Edge's mind is too unstable, and the games he plays when it comes to gold are legendary. But whatever happened to his idea of getting rid of anything stupid? Maybe he's trying to eliminate Kane's new persona. Nevertheless, Paul Bearer will be the difference here, as Kane retains the title yet again.

Winner: Kane (retains title)


Match 7: Survivor Series Match: Team Mysterio (Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, Big Show, Chris Masters, MVP) vs. Team Del Rio (Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, Tyler Reks)

I'm a little disappointed there's only one traditional SS match in the final Survivor Series. However, there's a good mix of former champions and the future champions. Don't expect Reks or Masters to play any part except for being the first ones eliminated. In the end, Rey will again have the odds against him, but Del Rio will be the sole survivor in the end.

Winner: Team Del Rio (Sole Survivor: Alberto Del Rio)


Main Event: WWE Championship: Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett (Referee: John Cena)

This is it. A moment...two months in the making. I'm pretty sure John Cena can call it down the middle, but when Orton hits an RKO and goes for the win, will Cena have the courage to hit the mat three times and walk out of the WWE?

It doesn't matter. Wade Barrett will be the next rookie to win the most coveted title in professional wrestling.

Winner: Wade Barrett (new WWE champion)

As Cena raises Wade's hand, Nexus storms into the ring. They enter and look hungrily at Cena, but after the verbal attack by Wade earlier in the night against them, they circle their leader and pounce on him instead. Cena then picks up the champ, hits an Attitude Adjustment and is revealed as the new leader of the Nexus! You can hear the hearts of children breaking, and see their tears stream down as Cena dons the Nexus shirt!

Well, I know it's a long shot, but if you have another vision of any matches or the event as a whole, leave your comments and feedback in the section below!
