Tonight, the WWE will host their annual TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view, with some major shake-ups to the match card due to unforeseen medical conditions affecting both Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt. The conditions come at a bad time for the pair, as Reigns was to compete in the first match that would see The Shield truly reunited, whilst Wyatt was all set to debut his Sister Abigail alternate persona.
Still, with the likes of AJ Styles and Raw General Manager Kurt Angle competing in their place, Sunday’s PPV should still make for compelling viewing. Check out the full list of matches for tonight’s event below:
- Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox
- Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher vs. Rich Swann and Cedric Alexander
- Kalisto (c) vs. Enzo Amore for the Cruiserweight Championship
- Finn Balor vs. AJ Styles
- Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Mickie James for the Raw Women’s Championship
- Asuka vs. Emma
- Kurt Angle, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose vs. The Bar, The Miz, Kane and Brawn Strowman in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match
Though there are a couple of outcomes that seem like dead certs – such as Asuka going over Emma because it’s her big main roster debut – there are a few things that could happen in the pay-per-view event. The match card may not be as stacked as some people would like, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be thrilling.
Whilst we do think Asuka will beat Emma, there’s a chance the heel will give her the win via disqualification. With plenty of weapons scattered around the arena, we wouldn’t put it past Emma to snap completely and unleash an assault on Asuka with a chair or other instrument of destruction.
Then there’s Bliss, who’s heavily favoured to retain her title against Mickie James. With the veteran now finally in the title picture however, we think bosses might throw a little curveball into the mix here and allow Mickie to pick up the title for the first time following her return to the company.
Many think Enzo will pick the Cruiserweight title back up from Kalisto, leaving the latter with an extremely short reign, and we also think this is likely what’s going to happen. Enzo is just too good of a heel to throw out of the title picture at this point, and he’s somebody who sells merchandise.
Whatever happens tonight, we think it’s all going to make for compelling viewing!
WWE’s TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs will be available to buy on pay-per-view or watch live on the WWE Network.
