This year's Survivor Series is one of the most anticipated pay-per-view events in recent history in the WWE.

The main event marks the return of The Rock after his absence from the professional wrestling scene since 2004.

He will be teaming up with John Cena to take on The Miz and R-Truth in a traditional tag-team matchup.

The fight has gained ridiculous attention, due mostly to the return of The Rock.

It has caused the two championship fights for the evening to receive less praise and attention than most title fights would.

Champion Mark Henry will take on Big Show with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line. The Henry and Big Show feud has been played out long enough. It appears that this will be the final fight between the two before new feuds begin.

However, for that to happen Henry needs to walk away with the win. If Big Show wins then the feud will continue.

There are too many people that could step up to take on Henry next. One of the more sensational fights would be against Kane.

Henry will defend and begin a feud elsewhere.

Much like Henry, Alberto Del Rio is a great heel champion. He will face off against CM Punk at Survivor Series with the WWE Championship on the line.

Del Rio is still learning the ropes as a WWE Superstar. He doesn't have the camera skills that a guy like CM Punk has, but he is great in the ring.

By defending, Del Rio will continue to adapt to the WWE and become comfortable with his role.

The real reason Punk has to lose is because he can't walk into Wrestlemania with the title. It will be at Wrestlemania that he will get his time to shine.
