Predictions for WWE Survivor Series

NON TITLE MATCHES

YouTube Pre-Show Tag Team Match
3MB (Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal) vs. International Airstrike (Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel)


Evan O. – GABRIEL AND KIDD.

Dave S. – 3MB.

Nick G. - THREE MAN BAND BAYBAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!ONEONEONEONEONEONEONEONE111111ONE!!!

Anthony V. – 3MB. They are the next big thing in the mid-card. It should be a decent YouTube opener.

Josh B. – KIDD AND GABRIEL.

Greg M. – 3MB BABYYYYYY.

Darragh O. – 3MB (SLATER AND MAHAL).

Grash – 3MB.

Matt O. – 3MB.

Jason N. – 3 MAN BANDDDDDD, BABYYYYYY!!!

Rocky D. – 3MB.

Damon C. – 3MB vs. International Airstrike. It will be interesting to see how many hits YouTube gets for this "main event anywhere in the country" match. I'll just close my eyes and select 3MB as your winners.

Mike M. – 3MB. I think Kidd and Gabriel could bring a lot to the tag team scene eventually, but unfortunately Wendy and Jinder will pick up the win here

Jordan B. – 3MB BABAAAYY!

Robert D. – 3MB.

CONSENSUS: 3MB 13-2.

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


*Note: As of press time, Cody Rhodes is still on the card.

Evan O. – TEAM FOLEY.

Dave S. – TEAM FOLEY.

Nick G. – FOLEY'S DANCE SQUAD.

Anthony V. – TEAM FOLEY. Man, would this do wonders for Ziggler if his team won and I won't be surprised. But I'll go with Miz being the sole survivor.

Josh B. – TEAM FOLEY.

Greg M. – TEAM FOLEY.

Darragh O. – TEAM FOLEY. (ORTON, KANE, BRYAN, KINGSTON, MIZ)

Grash – TEAM FOLEY.

Matt O. – TEAM ZIGGLER.

Jason N. – TEAM ZIGGLER. (ZIGGLER sole survivor).

Rocky D. – TEAM ZIGGLER.

Damon C. – I see many more scenarios with Team Ziggler coming out victorious over Team Foley. Miz turning on his team, X factor replacement for Cody Rhodes, Dissention between Kane and Daniel Bryan. If I were a betting man (and I am, heck I live in Vegas.) After handicapping this one, my money is on TEAM ZIGGLER.

Mike M. – TEAM FOLEY. There is a lot of focus on how dysfunctional Foley's team is, so I think they will pull off the win. Miz's team will win, but Dolph will win the World title by the end of the night. This will start a Miz/Dolph feud for the World title.

Jordan B. – TEAM FOLEY.

Robert D. – TEAM FOLEY I see this as 03 Team Angle/Team Lesnar. Miz in the role of Cena and Orton in the role of Benoit, both will be the Survivors of Team Foley.

CONSENSUS: TEAM FOLEY 11-4.

CHAMPIONSHIP MATCHES

Singles Match for the WWE Divas Championship
Eve (c) vs. Kaitlyn


Evan O. – EVE.

Dave S. – EVE.

Nick G. – EVE.

Anthony V. – KAITLYN. This may be an upset, but I think she is the next diva that the WWE wants to elevate. She will finally get her due tonight.

Josh B. – EVE.

Greg M. – KAITLYN.

Darragh O. – EVE.

Grash – KAITLYN.

Matt O. – KAITLYN.

Jason N. – EVE.

Rocky D. – Winner and still Divas Champion EVE.

Damon C. – Kaitlyn is on somewhat of a roll going into this match. I'll go with the hot diva here...literally. KAITLYN secures the strap.

Mike M. – KAITLYN. It's finally time for Kaitlyn to take the title. Eve's reign has run its course this time around.

Jordan B. – EVE.

Robert D. – .........uhhh...might be a throwaway, Let's say KAITLYN.

CONSENSUS: EVE 8-7.

Singles Match for the WWE United States Championship
Antonio Cesaro (c) vs. R-Truth


Evan O. – ANTONIO CESARO.

Dave S. – ANTONIO CESARO.

Nick G. – CESARO.

Anthony V. – CESARO. This is the easiest pick of the night. Cesaro needs victories to be validated as a 2nd-tier champion. There is nothing wrong with that.

Josh B. – CESARO.

Greg M. – ANTONIO CESARO.

Darragh O. – ANTONIO CESARO.

Grash – ANTONIO CESARO.

Matt O. – CESARO.

Jason N. – CLAUDIO.

Rocky D. – Winner and still US Champion ANTONIO CESARO.

Damon C. – I see ANTONIO CESARO defeating R-Truth, Little Jimmy, Webster, Bobby Brady, The Beaver or any other invisible child he brings to the ring.

Mike M. – ANTONIO CESARO. R-Truth doesn't really have the momentum to win any gold right now. Claudio Castagnoli is doing a pretty good job as the anti-American U.S. champ.

Jordan B. – ANTONIO CESARO.

Robert D. – CESARO.

CONSENSUS: CESARO 15-0.

Singles Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
The Big Show (c) vs. Sheamus


Evan O. – THE BIG SHOW.

Dave S. – THE BIG SHOW.

Nick G. – SHOW.

Anthony V. – SHEAMUS. This match just screams Disqualification. The Big Show made his point by winning last month, so now he will just take an easy way out to win this match. FYI: Dolph does not cash in. Why would he?

Josh B. – BIG SHOW.

Greg M. – THE BIG SHOW.

Darragh O. – SHEAMUS (via DQ).

Grash – THE BIG SHOW.

Matt O. – THE BIG SHOW.

Jason N. – BIG SHOW.

Rocky D. – Winner and still World Heavyweight Champion THE BIG SHOW.

Damon C. – Sheamus has shown heart, desire and gumption as he has shown the world that he wants to win back "his" World Heavyweight Championship. I think Mick Jagger said it best. "You don't always get whatcha waaant". The Giant Paul "BIG SHOW" Wight retains the gold.

Mike M. – THE BIG SHOW. This could go either way but the end result will be the same. I will say Big Show retains but not before Sheamus beats him down, opening the door for Ziggler to finally cash in.

Jordan B. – SHEAMOOSE.

Robert D. – BIG SHOW- No way they take it off of him now. But look for another rematch between them at TLC.

CONSENSUS: BIG SHOW 12-3.

Triple Threat Match for the WWE World Championship
CM Punk (c) vs. John Cena vs. Ryback


Evan O. – CM PUNK.

Dave S. – CM PUNK.

Nick G. – Because YOLO, PUNK retains.

Anthony V. – PUNK. I could finally see Cena playing spoiler here, but in the end I think Punk picks up the scraps and gets a cheap pinfall victory.

Josh B. – PUNK.

Greg M. – CM PUNK.

Darragh O. – CM PUNK.

Grash – CM PUNK.

Matt O. – JOHN CENA.

Jason N. – PUNK.

Rocky D. – Winner and still WWE Champion CM PUNK.

Damon C. – CM Punk is my favorite performer in the business bar none. (Kevin Steen is a close 2nd). Punk is approaching a calendar year as champion. Cena hasn't been champ in over 2 years and Ryback is hungry (Insert Feed me More chant here). Only because this is one of WWE's four "majors", I will predict an upset and call RYBACK your winner and NEWWWWWW WWE champion. But....rest assured it won't be a long reign.

Mike M. – CM PUNK. I don't see Punk dropping the title before Royal Rumble when he faces The Crock. Rock will then defend the title at Wrestlemania against John Cena.

Jordan B. – CM PUNK.

Robert D. – CM PUNK- Hopefully they don't take it off of him. Let him keep it till Royal Rumble and Beyond! Can you imagine, Punk beating Rock at RR and facing The Undertaker at WM for the title....a man can dream right...

CONSENSUS: CM PUNK got the most picks with 13 out of the 15 provided. Ryback and Cena each got one.
