On Sunday night, the WWE will bring professional wrestling fans across the country one of the year's most highly anticipated events, as the 2012 Survivor Series will air live from Indianapolis.

At the 26th edition of the Survivor Series, there are a number of intriguing matchups featuring some of the sport's biggest stars, and with titles on the line, the stakes couldn't be higher.

Heading into Sunday night, here's a look at who should win each of the evening's six showdowns.


Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd vs. Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal

In the tag-team pre-show, Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd will take on 3MB, who have been on a roll as of late.

In October, Jinder Mahal and Heath Slater teamed up to defeat former United States Champions Santino Marella and Zack Ryder, and on Sunday, regardless of which 3MB members are in the ring, they'll be a handful for Gabriel and Kidd.

Prediction: 3MB will win, especially if it's Slater and Mahal in the ring.

Team Ziggler vs. Team Foley

In what should be one of the evening's most entertaining showdowns, Team Ziggler, made up of Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett and Alberto Del Rio, will take on Team Foley, which includes a star-studded lineup of The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Kane, Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton.

There's a lot of firepower in this one, as both teams are loaded with some of the WWE's biggest names, and heading into Sunday night, both sides appear capable of coming away with the victory.

Prediction: It'll be close, but with the WWE Tag Team Champions in Team Hell No on their side, Team Foley has too much talent to lose this one.


The Big Show vs. Sheamus

With the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line, Big Show and Sheamus will both be hungry going into Sunday night.

As the reigning title-holder, Big Show has to be considered the favorite going into the match, but Sheamus, a former World Heavyweight Champion himself, won't be easy to beat.

Prediction: Big Show will hang onto the title, at least for a little bit longer.

CM Punk vs. Ryback vs. John Cena

Heading into Sunday, the most star-studded showdown has to be the Triple Threat match for the WWE Championship.

As the current champion, CM Punk has what it takes to retain the title, but he's facing some tough competition from forme champ John Cena and Ryback, who will be out for revenge after having his undefeated streak broken by Punk earlier this year.

Prediction: John Cena will regain his title, but not after taking a few shots of his own in what should be a very entertaining matchup.

Eve Torres vs. Kaitlyn

Reigning Divas Championship holder Eve Torres will try to defend her title against Kaitlyn and hang onto her title for a record fourth time.

Kaitlyn will be out to win her first Divas title, but she'll have a tough time taking out the most dominant diva in the WWE.

Prediction: Eve Torres wins and never gets seriously challenged.

Antonio Cesaro vs. R-Truth

In the last of Sunday night's clashes, Antonio Cesaro will take on R-Truth with the United States Championship on the line.

Both wrestlers have held the title, but with Cesaro as the current United States Champion, he has to be considered the favorite.

Prediction: Antonio Cesaro rolls, but not before R-Truth puts up a fight.
