The second-longest-running pay-per-view in WWE history will bring its talents to Madison Square Garden on Sunday, November 20 with the traditional elimination tag-team match highlighting Survivor Series.

The WWE will play host to six matches in the Big Apple on Sunday.

Here are my picks for the best three on the card.


Big Show vs. Mark Henry

These two guys have been around for more than just a little while. “Sexual Chocolate” and Big Show are two of the biggest guys you’ll ever see and will duel it out for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Rather than putting Big Show up against someone like Rey Mysterio, the WWE realized it makes more sense to pit him against someone his own size so the match will flow better.

Don’t be surprised if one of these guys takes to the top rope to add some thunder to the bout.


The Rock/John Cena vs. Miz/R-Truth

The Rock and John Cena team up to face the Miz and R-Truth in a match that could provide one of many storylines.

Cena and the People’s Champ will attempt to set their egos aside and coexist, but their distaste for each other will shine through during the match. There will be moments when they can’t stand each other and moments where their ability in the ring masks that fact.

“The Awesome Truth” will be formidable opponents, as their athleticism will make the match exciting.


Team Orton vs. Team Barrett

The five-on-five classic-elimination tag match should easily be the most entertaining of the night.

Team Orton is full of fan favorites, and Team Barrett is loaded with talented—but not well-liked—wrestlers. This format has provided some of the most exciting matches in memory, with the guarantee of handicap bouts.

Expect tons of action in and out of the ring.
