There are only so many spots where Big Show can throw Randy Orton around like a rag doll, therefore Orton will have to find a way to work with Show that we could not predict as of this moment. Not many duels come to mind between these two, and if this match looks more like a Street Fight or a No Holds Barred contest, then it can be promising. If it takes place in the ring with Orton having to wear the massive athlete down, we will ask ourselves why this match served as the headliner. It has been a while since Big Show found himself main-eventing pay-per-view cards, and if the title should change this Sunday (it won’t), that would be quite the shocker. The general consensus here is that The Authority will find a way to screw the behemoth, and make Orton look like a dominant champion in the process. Can Paul Wight deliver on the big stage, when there are a number of competitors behind him that should be in his spot? The Miz has finally turned heel again, and he needed a shakeup to stay somewhat relevant living outside of the main storylines – unless of course they need him to be pummeled by someone like Kane. It would make sense for The Miz to beat Kofi Kingston in the Survivor Series Kickoff, but does it make sense for Kofi to lose to The Miz right now? Big E Langston must take part in the rematch treatment after beating Curtis Axel for the WWE Intercontinental Championship on Raw this past week. Is Langston ready to shine? Can he be a major player moving forward? His physique must be giving Vince McMahon that fuzzy, climbing-rope feeling and hopefully he can have a good run with what was the second most prestigious title in the company a few decades ago. After his latest injury in which we have lost count by now, Rey Mysterio makes his long-awaited return alongside Cody Rhodes, Goldust and The Usos. Mysterio will be expected to dazzle the crowd upon his resurgence and being nearly 40 years old, you have to wonder what is left for Mysterio to do and equally, to be excited for. The former WWE Champion and two-time World Heavyweight Champion may get the mid-card treatment after he settles in. With The Wyatt Family coming full circle (or at least very close), the mystique of The Shield could be fading, and although matching them with The Real Americans proves to be a decent team, they will need to shine to be considered as a band apart even if they have cemented their status. Simply put, there are others battling for their spot, and the opposition is doing well. Harper & Rowan make their pay-per-view wrestling debut, and the task is a tall order against CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. Harper seems like he will turn out to be the Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart and (dare we say it) Scott Steiner of the tag team, yet it remains to be seen if he can have a successful singles career that comes remotely close to anything those men accomplished. Still, we are expecting a solid performance from the two Wyatt Family members. Wrestling fans shout in unison that Antonio Cesaro needs to break apart from Jack Swagger en route to the push he deserves. Teaming up with The Shield, there is a good chance Cesaro finds himself on the apron alone at some point and that would be the ideal scenario. Since we are asking about both guys, what do you with Jack Swagger? Although it would be better for these two superstars to be pitted up against each other rather than forming a team to take on Harper & Rowan, we sort of know what to expect these days. CM Punk and Daniel Bryan are tremendously important to the company, and without them, the product would be weak as hell. We wish the creative team would realize this…unless the goal is for Punk and Bryan to simmer down before main eventing WrestleMania next year, and start off 2014 with a bang. Fingers crossed. The finish will never be in doubt, with John Cena retaining his title in his home state of Massachusetts. They will sell the arm injury and hopefully Alberto Del Rio brings forth a hostile approach for the champion’s homecoming to be a great match. If not, nothing will surprise us concerning a Cena performance and he begins his lengthily run.
We round up the WWE Superstars that should be watched with a close eye at Sunday’s Survivor Series 2013, which takes place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Pap-per-view debuts and returning household names are included in our “10 To Watch” breakdown. Is there anyone else we should care to watch closely? Let us know in the comments section.
