No one really knows how PvP will play out, let alone how each class will feel at level 60, but I can make some guesses.
Witch Doctor will probably be the least effective in PvP. Many of his skills/passives rely on PvM combat; such as Soul Harvest, Circle of Life, etc. Also, pets may end up being decent in PvP, but it seems like they are better at spreading out mobs and taking damage than dealing with single, mobile, player controlled heroes.
Hard to choose between Demon Hunter and Wizard. Both have pretty high damage output and mobility. If I had to guess I would say Wizard will be pretty hard to out-do in a PvP situation, just a guess though. Demon Hunter will almost certainly be less played for the first few months, as Wizard and Barb seem to dominate popularity, so going with the less common choice could give you a PvP advantage, as people might be less adept at playing against them.

Lots of classes have PvM skills. The real issue in PvP for wizard vs WD is whether healing+hard CC or mobility+soft CC is stronger. We will have to wait until the metagame settles to find this out.

I would say the exact opposite, which i think proves how silly it is to have this debate before we have any idea how the skills will work in practice.
I think the wd will be the hardest to take down for monks and barbs, every spell that isnt a CC spell has a CC rune.
That combined with Wall of zombies to block direct projectiles from the wiz and DH while pelting them with rain of toads/firebomb/haunt all of which path around obstacles.
As far as pets go i don't even intend to use them solo let alone pvp, and at 60 with a bunch of int gear soul harvest wont be nearly as important.
