Survivor Series is almost here, and it features some of the best matches of the year.

Although there have been a number of changes to the slate, it seems that the moves have made this pay-per-view even better.

By the end of the day, there should be a lot of athletes with new bragging rights as well as a few new champions after big performances. 

Here are some predictions for the biggest matches on Sunday.

World Heavyweight Championship

The Big Show vs. Sheamus

In a rematch of last month's Hell in a Cell bout, Sheamus will look to win back his World Heavyweight Championship.

He had a solid run with the belt, winning it after an 18-second match with Daniel Bryan. However, he might not have what it takes to get the title back so soon.

The Big Show is a legend in this sport, but he does not have too much experience with the title that fits his persona so perfectly. If he does relinquish the belt, there is a chance he will never get the opportunity again.

In what should be an entertaining match, the Big Show should retain his title.

Survivor Series 5-on-5 Elimination Match

Team Ziggler vs. Team Foley

Featuring 10 of the best athletes in WWE, the Survivor Series match is certain to be one for the ages.

There were a lot of changes to the rosters in this competition, but the final list provides plenty of excitement. 

Team Foley has the advantage in this bout, with the Miz entering as the people's choice and Team Hell No bringing loads of talent. In addition, fans should not be surprised to see Mick Foley enter the ring and help out himself.

It might be tough to keep up with the activity, but Foley's group should come out on top. 

WWE Championship Triple Threat Match

CM Punk vs. Ryback vs. John Cena

The main event features three of the biggest names in WWE.

Ryback was cheated out of the belt in the last pay-per-view event by referee Brad Maddox. He should be able to get redemption this time around.

CM Punk and John Cena have both been around the block. They have each won the championship multiple times, and it is time for someone new to get in the spotlight.

As one of the biggest and strongest wrestlers in the sport, Ryback has the ability to win the match and hold the belt for quite some time. All he needs is some more fan support to bring him to the top.
