WWE CHAMPIONSHIP – SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE MATCH: Randy Orton (Champion) vs. Wade Barrett. John Cena is the special guest referee.
Stipulations: No count-outs. No Disqualification. All members of The Nexus are banned from ringside.
Cena will be leaving Nexus one way or another in this match. If Cena raises Barrett’s hand in victory, Cena will be allowed to leave Nexus. If Cena does not raise Barrett’s hand in victory, Cena will be fired. Since there is no disqualification this time, Cena will not be able to find an escape clause like he did at Bragging Rights.
So who is going to win?
This is a tough match to call. I just can’t see Cena helping Barrett win the WWE Championship. On the other hand I can’t see Cena being fired either. Barrett is on the Survivor Series poster along with having a commercial that airs on TV promoting the PPV. Does this guarantee Barrett a victory? I think not, but I am going to give the win to Barrett. Even though must be would be expecting him to win. Below is what I think is going to happen.
Before the match starts, I think the Anonymous Raw General Manager will reveal himself. I think he will relieve Cena as a member of Nexus. Now that Cena has been removed from Nexus, he will be able to call the match fairly without having to worry about being fired. I think Orton will be on the verge of victory, but Cena decides not to count. Allowing Barrett to recover and hit his finishing move on Orton. Cena will count to 3 and raise Barrett’s hand in victory. Cena will than remove his referee shirt only to be sporting a Nexus shirt underneath. As this is going on the Raw GM will be entering the ring to present Barrett with the WWE Championship. The GM will also remove his coat sporting a Nexus shirt.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Kane (Champion) vs. Edge
I think Kane will win this match. Kane defeated The Undertaker multiple times and buried him alive. I think all of that would be a waste if he lost the title to Edge in their first match against each other. I think Kane should beat Edge at Survivor Series but lose at Tables, Ladders, and Chairs (TLC). Since a Ladder Match is Edge’s speciality match, it would make more sense for Kane to lose the title at TLC.
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Dolph Ziggler (Champion) vs. Kaval
Dolph Ziggler should win this match, what has Kaval done since showing up on Smackdown. He lost his spot on Team Smackdown to Tyler Reks last month. Now he is getting a shot at the Intercontinental Championship, that does not seem logical to me, which is why I’m giving the win to Ziggler. I would not be surprised if Kaval won though since the fans seem to like him, but I don’t think he deserves the Championship just yet.
TRADITIONAL SURVIVOR SERIES ELIMINATION TAG TEAM MATCH: Team Mysterio (Rey Mysterio, Big Show, Kofi Kingston, MVP, & Chris Masters) vs. Team Del Rio (Alberto Del Rio, Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger, & Tyler Reks).
This match could go either way. Team Del Rio is basically made up of WWE rookies, so if WWE wants them to have some star power they could pick up the victory. However, I’m going to pick Team Mysterio on this one. The team consists of fan favorites, plus Rey Mysterio just returned to Smackdown and Big Show just had a movie come out. All those factors make Team Mysterio more likely to win.
WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater (Champions) vs. Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov
Santino and Kozlov are at a huge disadvantage in this match. Odds are Gabriel and Slater will have other Nexus members in their corner, which makes them more likely to steal a victory. However, the Cobra can strike out of nowhere. With a finishing move like that it just might be enough for Santino and Kozlov to pick up the victory. Plus Gabriel and Slater have not done anything to deserve the Championships, Wade Barrett basically handed them the titles by making Cena and Otunga lay down. That is why I’m giving the win to Santino and Kozlov. Who knows maybe Cena will even help them pick up the victory, so that it looks like he is against Nexus.
DIVAS CHAMPIONSHIP 2-ON-1 HANDICAP MATCH: Michelle McCool and Layla (Co-Divas Champions) vs. Natalya
Before I know this was a handicap match I thought the Natalya was going to win. This is the third time Natalya will be facing a member from Lay-Cool for the Divas Championship. If WWE did not want Natalya as Champion, I think they would have put someone else in this match instead of her. I think Natalya lost the first two times, so the fans had a chance to get behind her. Even with the fans behind her I don’t think she should win this match. It’s not realistic for one person to beat two people, which is why I’m giving the win to McCool and Layla.
MATCH: John Morrison vs. Sheamus
I’m giving the win to Sheamus. If Sheamus loses this match I don’t see him ever recapturing the WWE Championship. Sheamus needs to redeem himself after losing to Santino or people may start seeing him as a joke, that is why I’m giving him the victory in this match.
