Tables and ladders and chairs, oh my! That never gets old. The next event from WWE is none other than TLC, which is a lot like Extreme Rules, but centered around only three items to be used as weapons. This PPV is going to be violent, and these matches are going to be short.
TLC comes to the WWE Network on Sunday, December 16. The next event comes to the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will air at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT, with a Kickoff Show beginning one hour prior.
This is a stacked evening, with a dozen matches planned for the card, which is on the same level as Wrestlemania, but Wrestlemania this PPV is not. There are a few matches to look forward to on this evening though. The New Daniel Bryan–which is like New Coke but actually awesome–defends his title against AJ Styles in what should be the match of the evening. There’s also Seth Rollins fighting Dean Ambrose for the Intercontinental Championship, and again, this will be a great match.
The one we’re all looking forward to is none other than Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch in a TLC match for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. It’s about time Asuka gets a bit of a push, especially after the losing streak she’s been on since her winning streak was broken. Aside from those matches, this card is looking a bit underwhelming for the most part, primarily from everything else Raw is offering.
As of this writing, there are 12 matches planned for the PPV, featuring the superstars of Raw, Smackdown, and 205 Live.
Here’s what is currently planned for TLC:
- R-Truth & Carmella vs. Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox (Finals of MMC Season 2)
- Rey Mysterio vs. Randy Orton (Chairs Match)
- Buddy Murphy (c) vs. Cedric Alexander (Cruiserweight Championship)
- Elias vs. Bobby Lashley (Ladder Match)
- Finn Bálor vs. Drew McIntyre
- Natalya vs. Ruby Riott (Tables Match)
- The Bar (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Usos (SmackDown Tag Team Championships)
- Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka (Triple Threat TLC Match For The Smackdown Women’s Championship)
- Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nia Jax (Raw Women’s Championship)
- Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin (TLC Match)
- Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose (Intercontinental Championship)
- (The New) Daniel Bryan (c) vs. AJ Styles (WWE Championship)
