WWE.com polled five different WWE staff to give their predictions for every match that will take place at WWE Survivor Series on Sunday. Here is the prediction outcomes for Team Cena vs. Team Authority, and we must say that the predicted outcomes for Team Authority are not looking in their favor.
@JoeyStyles: These types of matches are almost impossible to predict, because we are not tasked with picking an entire winning team, but anywhere from one to five survivors of the winning team. That being said, I am going to start by predicting the winning team because of the high stakes of the match. The survivors of the match will be on Team Cena , meaning The Authority will no longer be in power. As for which Team Cena members survive, I’m going with Dolph Ziggler and Ryback, only to see The Big Guy then Shellshock The Showoff, because he’s just not a team player, unless that team is Team Ryback. WINNER: Team Cena
@HowardFinkel: Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have assembled an impressive and in-sync array of talent, as the team members all seem to have each other’s backs. On the other side, I feel that the paint is still wet with Team Cena and might not be dry by this Sunday. Will Ryback revert back to being his own man? Can Erick Rowan be trusted? And how healthy are Dolph Ziggler and Big Show following Raw? I also wonder how cohesive a team they will be, because to me, Cena had to do more than his fair share of convincing to get folks to join with him. It’s all or nothing for The Authority, and I believe they will prevail in this traditional Survivor Series contest! WINNER: Team Authority
Bill Apter: Team captain John Cena’s motto is “Never give up,” and his teammates certainly share his goal of totally demolishing Team Authority, which undoubtedly will spur on Cena and his fighting allies to ultimate victory. I do caution that Team Authority could pull out a surprise win if Ryback, who I don’t trust at all, decides to align himself with Team Authority during a critical point in the match. WINNER: Team Cena
Scott Taylor: Where there’s a will, John Cena finds a way. The stakes have never been higher for a Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match, and I think we are looking at two of the strongest Survivor Series teams ever assembled. But for me, the X-factor is the Cenation leader, who has made a career out of winning big matches. The Authority’s time is up … even if they can’t see it yet. WINNER: Team Cena
Zach Linder: John Cena’s road to Survivor Series has been — to say the least — a bumpy one. Until late Monday night, Cena didn’t even have a complete quintet. With the additions of Ryback and Erick Rowan on Raw, not to mention Triple H being left in a heap wearing a rumpled button-down, Cena seems to finally have the momentum he needs. But one night does not a team make. The Authority has curated a cadre that oozes power. They can’t lose. Their livelihoods are on the line. My money’s on the bad guys. WINNER: Team Authority
Team Cena: 3, Team Authority: 2
Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins (with Mercury & Noble)
Ambrose came out first, tossed a bunch of chairs into the ring and then ascended to the top with a Singapore Cane. The crowd loved all this. Rollins refused to play into Ambrose’s hands and went right into the ring. Rollins finally said that if Ambrose wanted to start up there, he would go up there as well. Noble and Mercury tried to change his mind but Rollins said he tells them what to do. He started climbing up, then stopped and went back down and ordered Mercury and Noble to go up and get Ambrose. He said they work for him, which is probably news to WWE.
Mercury and Noble climbed up opposite sides of the Cell. Ambrose caned them down on top of the Cell and unloaded on them. Rollins scrambled up and attacked Ambrose and they began brawling in top of the cell. Mercury and Noble held Ambrose down as Rollins caned him over and over. The henchmen worked over Dean as Rollins tossed the cane down to the floor below. Rollins told them to toss Ambrose off the top to the floor but Dean broke free and nailed Noble with Dirty Deeds on the top of the cage. He wiped out Mercury and went after Rollins, who tried to scale down. Ambrose followed and they scaled down the same side at the same time. Ambrose caught him halfway down and they battled, slamming each other’s heads into the cage. They both fell off the side of the Cell, crashing through both announcing tables at the same time.
The officials checked on both men and called for stretchers. Rollins was placed on a backboard and put on one of the stretchers. They kept replaying the falls from every camera angle possible, promoting it as this insane fall. Michael Cole made sure to note the match never officially started. They started rolling Rollins out. They began rolling Ambrose out. The crowd chanted his name, which energized him and he broke free from his stretcher. Continue Reading
The most brutal night on the WWE calendar is almost here. The eyes of the WWE Universe are sure to be locked on Dallas as the ominous Hell in a Cell touches ground at the American Airlines Arena.
Fans are itching to see John Cena battle Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose finally get his hands on Seth Rollins inside the Cell, but there’s plenty more to be excited about at Hell in a Cell 2014. Stroll through and check out WWE.com’s predictions for the action-packed card.
Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins (Hell in a Cell Match)
@JoeyStyles: The Lunatic Fringe of The Shield, Dean Ambrose couldn’t be any more comfortable inside a cell unless it was padded and located in the basement of an institution. The Architect of The Shield will see his future plans torn to shreds. With Randy Orton, Kane, Triple H and cronies Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble unable to get into the covered colossal cage, Ambrose will beat Rollins senseless before finally pinning him, just to add injury to insult. WINNER: Dean Ambrose
@HowardFinkel: Finally, Rollins has nowhere to run or hide. Advantage: Ambrose. The Cell is an unforgiving structure. Advantage: Ambrose. The unpredictability of Ambrose is custom-made for the Cell. Advantage: Ambrose. I am not selling Seth Rollins short by any means, as I believe that he’ll be on his “A” game. But Dean Ambrose will get the better grade at an A+, and emerge victorious. WINNER: Dean Ambrose
Anthony Benigno: They call Hell in a Cell the place where rivalries are settled forever, but even this 20-foot tall, five-ton prison might not be sufficient enough to settle Dean Ambrose’s beef with Seth Rollins. Mr. Money in the Bank currently leads The Lunatic Fringe in victories. However, assuming he’s walking into a winnable situation inside the Cell might be overly bold of the former Architect. As a veteran of the death-match scene, Ambrose has more or less prepared his whole life for this kind of fight, against an opponent he hated just the right amount. Well guess what, buddy? To borrow a phrase from another Cell competitor, your time is now. WINNER: Dean Ambrose

He hit a dive onto the Lumberjacks, then darted across the announce tables en route to diving onto Rollins.
