TLC 2018 Match Cards, Rumors

The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE program is the TLC event set to take place on Sun., Dec. 16, 2018, at the SAP Center in San Jose, California. This is the business’s annual showcase playing the favorite Tables, Ladders, and Chairs gimmick match that took the pro wrestling world by storm in the early 2000s.

 

We’re two weeks out from showtime and the card looks like this:

 

  • Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nia Jax (Raw women’s championship)
  • Jax won a battle royal at Evolution, earning a title shot in the process. This is where she gets it.

 

Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka (Smack Down women’s championship)

This was going to be a singles game until the women of Smack Down Live campaigned and were booked at a battle royal, with the winner earning entry. Asuka won by last eliminating Sonya Deville. This will also be a TLC match.

 

Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose (Intercontinental championship)

Ambrose turned on Rollins the exact same night Roman Reigns announced he was leaving to fight cancer. They lost the Raw tag team names soon after and are now embroiled in a blood feud.

 

Daniel Bryan (c) vs. AJ Styles (WWE championship)

Bryan won the title by turning heel and kicking Styles in the nuts. This is the rematch. There has not been much story surrounding it.

 

The Bar (c) vs. The Usos vs. The New Day (SmackDown tag team championship)

The Usos and The New Day have scored non-title wins over The Bar in recent weeks, so they get a shot at the titles here.

 

Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin (TLC match)

There are a great deal of stipulations at play here, and that’s assuming the game happens at all considering Strowman has elbow surgery scheduled for this week. If Corbin wins, he’ll be Raw General Manager on a full time basis. If he loses, he is out. If Strowman wins, he will get a Universal title shot against Brock Lesnar in Royal Rumble.

 

Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre

This was announced just days ago and continues a program they have been working on tv.

 

Elias vs. Bobby Lashley

 

This was announced just days ago and continues a program they have been working on tv.

This is where the Mixed Match Challenge 2 final will occur, where the winners make entrance number 30 in their various Royal Rumble matches.
