Bragging Rights Predictions and General Thoughts

Let me get one thing out of the way here...I do not like this PPV mainly because of the whole RAW vs Smackdown thing which worked out great in 2005 but did not last year. Now this year its elimination rules so at least it will be a good match but still, the concept is dumb and lets hope the other matches can put on a good show. Last year Orton vs Cena was an entertaining 60 minute match with a bad ending mainly because it wasn't believable. Anyway here's the card:
Unified Divas Champion Michelle McCool or Layla VS Natalya
WWE could do so much with these matches. Both McCool and Natalya are extremely talented and have the potential to put on a very good match. The one at Hell in a Cell was just really bad mainly because of the ending but one has to admit that the submission move exchange between the two is something we haven't seen in the Divas division in a VERY long time.
United States Champion Daniel Bryan vs Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler
This has the potential to be the best match of the night. Why? Firstly a champion vs champion match is always a good idea to have. We can now see who is the better man in the midcard and could potentially elevate the winner to main event status like what happened with Miz. He won this match last year and his star power only kept rising thus far. In terms of ability Daniel Bryan would be the obvious pick but considering the way both Ziggler and the I.C. title are being pushed right now, Ziggler has a better chance of winning this thing. And if WWE decide to unify the belts, the match is rumored to happen at Survivor Series so this one would end with a disqualification or count out to build up the match at Survivor Series. I HOPE THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN!
Prediction: Dolph Ziggler
Team RAW vs Team Smackdown!
Like I said, I don't like the concept but the upside to it is that it's an elimination match, which also kinda diminishes the whole point of Survivor Series -.- I love elimination matches so there's no reason for this match not to be good. You have two very formidable teams, with the exception of Santino who's obviously gonna be the first guy eliminated. The guy who will stand out in my mind is Ezekiel Jackson but ultimately I will go with Smackdown for the victory! Not much else to say here.
Prediction: Team Smackdown!
WWE Champion Randy Orton vs Wade Barrett with John Cena
Here's the match I'm mostly looking forward to. Barrett has been extremely impressive as of late while Orton has been ugh.... With Cena in Barrett's corner Wade can easily dispatch of Orton but as we all know it won't be that obvious. Ultimately, I just do not know what's going to happen in this match! This storyline is only growing and it is still very strong in my eyes...and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks so.
Prediction: NO IDEA!!
World Heavyweight Champion Kane vs the Undertaker(Buried Alive Match)
Their match at Night of Champions...GOOD! Their match at Hell in a Cell...BORING!! This match...it's gonna be bad, I just know it unfortunately. I hope for all the love of god that Bearer doesn't turn again. This storyline has elevated Kane so much that he has finally gone over the Undertaker and it has done Kane justice. He definitely deserves this push. But I see Taker winning this one now. Undertaker has been dominated by Kane in 3 consecutive PPVs now. Knowing how much Vince loves Taker and the fact that Taker is the face basically certifies that the Undertaker will win this match. I just hope the match will be good. The problem I have with it is that it is just way too slow, knowing both guys are powerhouses and Taker isn't what he used to be.
