C.M. Punk vs Chris Jericho for the WWE Championship

This could be the easiest decision, especially with the feud beginning even before the Elimination Chamber match. Two men who know how to work inside and outside of the ring. It is somewhat of a dream match given the technique they both possess when the bell rings. Jericho and Punk will fight for the WWE Championship and tear the house down in Miami. If there was a roof, it would be blown off. CM Punk has considered himself "Best in the World" but it was Jericho who claimed that less than two years ago. I expect Jericho to win a tournament on Raw to become the opponent for Punk. It is simple, but also is able for him to work in the ring more extensively and tone his skills. Punk and Jericho will battle for the title of "Best in the World" as well as the coveted WWE Championship. Do we really think Miz, Truth, Kofi, or Ziggler will win Sunday? I dont think so. The question will be is how does Jericho get eliminated? Or Will Punk get screwed and Jericho holds gold in Milwaukee? Don't doubt that theory.

Daniel Bryan vs Wade Barrett vs. Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship

I am going out on a reach here, especially because my theory will rest on Barrett walking out World Heavyweight Champion Sunday night. We are going to have so many one on one matches in Miami, so why does the World title need to be a 1-on-1 with Sheamus and Bryan? Think of the history between Bryan and Barrett, two guys who put on a fantastic match at SummerSlam in which Barrett won. Members of Nexus, both coming into the WWE in separate paths, the story writes itself. All you need is to add in the powerful Sheamus, a guy who dark matched a year ago with Bryan. The roles have been flipped, Bryan being the heel. Sunday, Bryan will full fledge embrace his heel turn. I, once again, am going out on limb and say Wade will somehow walk out as champion Sunday, Sheamus will sign a contract for WrestleMania to face Wade, and then Bryan will invoke his rematch clause. Bryan will look to regain Vengeance. The easiest way is for Sheamus to interfere in the match, setting up a personal feud between all three of them. Do this because it is something different and will be able to spotlight three young and fantastic talents on the Smackdown brand.
