Survivor Series Preview and Predictions



Tomorrow night, WWE will present us with the 26th-annual Survivor Series pay-per-view event. Despite the lack of matches for the card (although, I’m perfectly fine with just five), the build for the matches has been pretty decent over the past few weeks. I ordered this pay-per-view on a whim and will be providing live, ongoing coverage tomorrow night right here on gerweck.net, so join me! Without any further delay, here are my predictions for the last of the “Big Four” pay-per-views of 2012.

Pre-Show: 3MB (Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal) vs. Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd
This has the potential to be a pretty fun opener for the pre-show. It seems the rumored plans to have Gabriel become a singles competitor are on hold for now, and the 3MB have become quite the formidable group as of late. I think the 3MB’s run will continue here, and I do believe the 3MB will get a shot at the WWE Tag Team Championship before year’s end.
Prediction: The 3MB pick up the victory.

WWE United States Championship Match: Antonio Cesaro (c) vs. R-Truth
Truth is one of the more underrated workers in the WWE, and Cesaro is just fantastic. That is why this could (will?) be a pretty good match. I’m not expecting an instant classic or anything like that, but I do believe these two will put together a nice match that will go back-and-forth throughout. Cesaro has just begun his reign as the United States Champion. By that, I mean that it seems to soon for him to drop the strap. I think Truth is the first of a long line of faces that Cesaro is going to bulldoze his way through going into 2013.
Prediction: Antonio Cesaro to retain the WWE United States Championship.

WWE Divas Championship Match: Eve Torres (c) vs. Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn won a number one contender’s match to get her title shot tomorrow night. It is still not clear, storyline wise, who attacked Kaitlyn at Night of Champions. That’s about it. I’m going out on a limb here and saying that the obvious is finally revealed and Kaitlyn finds out at Eve attacked her. This will lead to Kaitlyn being unable to control her anger and getting herself disqualified in the match.
Prediction: Eve Torres to retain the WWE Divas Championship by disqualification.

Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match: Team Ziggler (Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, and Wade Barrett) vs. Team Foley (Daniel Bryan, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, and The Miz)
I could honestly see this match going either way. There seems to be dissension in the ranks on both teams. I’ m liking the face turn for The Miz quite nicely, because he had really done all there was to do as a heel. A lot of people are predicting him to re-turn and cost his team the match. I do not. I do not think we’ll see any turns during this match, but if we did, it would be Randy Orton. His promo on Smackdown where he said he didn’t like anyone on his team and did not trust them, and then RKO’ing The Miz after their match may have planted the seeds for his turn. Like I said, I don’t think it will happen tomorrow night. It seems as though Cody Rhodes may be able to go for his team tomorrow night, but it’s still iffy. That wouldn’t make a difference in the outcome, either way. In the end, I see Del Rio and Ziggler’s egos getting the better of them, leading to The MIz picking up the win for Team Foley.
Prediction: Team Foley gets the win, The Miz and Randy Orton are the survivors.

World Heavyweight Championship Match: The Big Show (c) vs. Sheamus
The match between these two turned out to be the Match of the Night at Hell in a Cell. I could see it doing the exact same thing tomorrow night. I don’t expect the feud to end at Survivor Series, as it could very well stretch into early 2013. As much as this match was a fight at Hell in a Cell, I think it will be even more of a fight tomorrow. I could also see this match going either way. I don’t think Show’s reign will end just yet, but I wouldn’t be shocked if it did.
Prediction: The Big Show to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.

WWE Championship Triple Threat Match: CM Punk (c) vs. John Cena vs. Ryback
Tomorrow will be Day 364 of CM Punk’s reign as WWE Champion. He won the title from Alberto Del Rio at Survivor Series 2011, and has beaten every challenger he has faced, including John Cena and Ryback. Bear with me for the rest of this prediction, because some of you won’t like it. John Cena will win the WWE Championship tomorrow night. He will do so by pinning CM Punk. John Cena will defend the WWE Championship for two months, before losing to The Rock at the Royal Rumble in January. Speaking of the Royal Rumble, did I mention that CM Punk will win the Royal Rumble Match? Punk will do that, and will go on to regain the WWE Championship from The Rock at WrestleMania XXIV. Ryback will have one or two title matches in there somewhere, as well. Don’t hate on me for this prediction, because it’s more than likely 100% wrong. That’s why it’s a prediction. It just seems like that would be the way things would go.
Prediction: John Cena to win the WWE Championship.

Well, there you have it. The Survivor Series edition of my every-month, sometimes-correct, often-debated predictions. You can leave your feedback to the site on Twitter (@gerweck), to myself on Twitter (@TheMichaelRiba), or in the comment section below. As always, live coverage of the show will be provided here on gerweck.net tomorrow night and I hope you all enjoyed the predictions. Add your own! I like to read what you all have to say.

You’re welcome.

    i really can see something happening in the triple threat that has c.m. punk winning, ryback flipping shit, destroying punk, & ziggler cashing in, since those 2 have been jarring back & forth as of late. would be nice to see an up & comming superstar given the chance to show what he’s got, then we got rock & ziggler at rumble. has potential i think.

  3. MC Live says:

    Pre Show- 3MB
    US Title- Antonio
    -Diva’s- Eve
    Elimination- Team Foley (probably Miz and Orton), but I could see Randy RKOing Miz again to let Dolph Ziggler win it for his team
    World Heavyweight- Big Show Retains, maybe by DQ, or no contest
    WWE Title- Punk Retains. Ryback hits the finish on Cena, Punk takes out Ryback and steals the pin
    And, as for Willie above me, Dolph can’t cash in on Punk. His money in the bank is for the World Heavyweight Championship only

  4. What? says:

    Only problem is Ziggler can’t cash on punk, World title contract

  5. Tony says:

    The thing that a lot of people seem to be overlooking is the most obvious, rock is getting a title shot at the rumble and if you go back to raw 1000 punk says rock disrespected him and that has started his “rampage for respect” so it makes sense to see why punk will winand go onto face rock at the rumble

  6. Nick says:

    Thing is Willie, nobody would want to watch a Rock vs Ziggler match. It’s a shame, but true

  7. Tyler says:

    I see truth winning to give the people something. Other than that everything else will go chalk.

  8. Tyler says:

    @willie ziggler is the smackdown mitb holder…you know the whole blue case thing…

  9. willie says:

    damn, forgot the blue case thing. too used to MITB being at mania, and being universal.

  10. Travis says:

    3MB over the job squad
    Cessaro over Truth
    Kaitlyn over Eve
    Big Show over Sheamus. No Ziggler cash in tonight.
    Punk comes out with the belt somehow
    Team Foley over Team Ziggler. Sole survivors Miz & Orton w/ a heel turn by Orton attacking Miz after the match. Orton gets his heel turn, and they roll the ball with Miz as a super baby.

  11. PAZ says:

    SO IT’S TYME 4 THE 2012 SURVIVOR SERIES PPV AND THE MATCHES SEEM TO HAVE BEEN JUST THROWN 2GTHR 4 MIXED REASONS, BUT WITHOUT FURTHER HERE ARE MY PREDICTIONS:

    PRESHOW ON YOUTUBE:
    3MB VS. GABRIEL/KIDD
    THOUGH I FEEL THE 3MB ARE ONE OF THE DUMBEST TEAMS WWE HAS PUT 2GTHR, THEY ARE EFFECTIVE. GABRIEL/KIDD ARE A GOOD TEAM, BUT THERE IS NO POINT IN PUTTING THEM IN A MATCH WE KNOW THEY’LL LOSE 2 AN UPCOMING TEAM.
    WINNER: 3MB

    UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE
    R-TRUTH VS. CESSARO
    IT’S BEEN A GOOD WHILE SINCE TRUTH HAS HAD A GOOD TITLE RUN AS A SINGLES COMPETITOR, BUT CESSARO IS GONNA CONTINUE 2 “HUMILIATE” AMERICANS AS HE HOLDS THE TITLE. THE FIGHT WILL BE CLOSE AND MANY NEAR PIN FALLS, BUT CESSARO WILL WIN.
    WINNER: CESSARO

    WWE DIVA CHAMPIONSHIP
    EVE VS. KAITLYN
    I HOPE THIS CLOSES THE CHAPTER ON THE WHO ATTACKED KAITLYN @ NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS & KAITLYN WINS THIS MATCH.
    WINNER: KAITLYN

    SURVIVOR SERIES MATCH
    TEAM FOLEY VS. TEAM ZIGGLER
    FIRST OFF, I LOVE HOW THEY’RE MAKING THE MIZ A FACE 4 THIS MATCH, BUT IT’S BEEN A LONG TYME COMING & WILL IT BE A ONE TYME DEAL? ON 2 THE MATCH, BOTH TEAMS ARE SHOWING THAT THEY DON’T TRUST EACH OTHER & TRULY THIS COULD BE ANYBODY’S MATCH. BOTH TEAMS HAVE DYSFUNTIONAL MEMBERS AND IF THERE WERE ANY TEAM MEMBERS WHO HAD MORE HOLD, TEAM FOLEY HAS THE SOLID MEMBERS AS ORTON, MIZ & MAYBE KANE WILL BE THE SURVIVORS.
    WINNERS: TEAM FOLEY

    WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
    BIG SHOW VS. SHEAMUS
    SO THIS FUED CONTINUES. WHICH IS MORE POWERFUL, THE BROUGE OR THE WMD PUNCH. THIS MATCH WILL BE THE MATCH OF THE NIGHT IMO & WILL OUTDO THE FIRST MATCH THEY HAD @ HELL IN A CELL MAKING IT A MATCH OF THE YEAR CONTENDER. THE BROUGE WILL OVERPOWER THE WMD PUNCH AS SHEAMUS WINS IN A TIRESOME MATCH, WHICH BRINGS ME TO A THEORY NEXT.

    SHEAMUS VS. ZIGGLER
    YES, ZIGGLER WILL CASH IN HIS MONEY IN THE BANK CONTRACT HERE, BUT IF I KNOW BIG SHOW, HE’LL TAKE OUT ZIGGLES & SHEAMUS BUT SHOW IS GONNA PUT ZIGGLER COVERING SHEAMUS.
    WINNER: ZIGGLER

    WWE CHAMPIONSHIP TRIPLE THREAT
    CM PUNK VS. JOHN CENA VS. RYBACK
    THIS MAIN EVENT WILL BE WHAT FANS ARE GONNA ASK FOR, A HELL OF A MATCH, BRUTAL FORCE OF THE THREE TITANS OF RAW, BUT THE OUTCOME WILL COME ON THE WINGS OF RYBACK SHELL SHOCKING CENA & PUNK. FANS WILL GET THE MATCH THEY’VE BEEN WANTING IN A LONG TYME.
    WINNER & NEW WWE CHAMPION: RYBACK!!!!

  12. Will Henderson says:

    here’s my predictions for tonight:
    preshow match: 3MB vs. Tyson Kidd/Justin Gabriel: 3MB wins via numbers game

    US Championship: Cesaro (C.) vs. R-Truth: Cesaro retains.

    Divas championship: Eve (C.) vs. Kaitlyn: Eve retains as they continue to build up the pending AJ Lee/Eve feud.

    Survivor Series match: Team Ziggler vs. Team Foley: Team Ziggler wins when Randy Orton turns heel on Team Foley and RKOs Miz and maybe a couple of others of Team Foley if they are a few left leading to a member of Team Ziggler to get the pinfall, most likely Dolph Ziggler.

    an last second tag team match involving Team CoBo, Rey Mysterio and SIn Cara, Prime Time Players and the Usos.

    the segment where AJ Lee reveals the evidence against Vickie Guerrero, the evidence will be her ether getting caught editing audio and video that ended up causing AJ to resign as Raw GM, or footage of Vickie and Dolph kissing and touching each other in a erotic way. this segment will lead to ether Vickie and AJ fighting in which AJ won’t get fired due to self defensive as Vickie will be the one starting the fight. and a possible Ziggler & John Cena appearance in this.

    World Heavyweight Championship: Big Show (C.) vs. Sheamus: Big Show retains with another WMD Knockout punch.

    WWE Championship: CM Punk (C.) vs. Ryback vs. John Cena: CM Punk will retain as John Cena will get screwed when Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero and AJ Lee will get invovled in the final outcome of the match, Ryback will dominate early on but Brad Maddox tries to interfere only for Ryback to chase after him setting up the John Cena screw over finish. as they need to continue the Ryback/ Brad Maddox angle and not put the belt on Ryback yet, hes not ready to be a champion, and also set up the Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena or Cena/AJ vs. Ziggler/Vickie match at TLC, and also keep Punk the champ until his match against The Rock at Royal Rumble.

    that’s my predictions for tonight.
