Some plans for TLC are still very much up in the air, with Alexa Bliss vs Mickie James being the only confirmed match; that being said it’s a near certainty that The Shield will face the trio of The Miz, Cesaro and Sheamus in the Main Event. Our sources have told us that the WWE are contemplating making the bout a TLC match with the Raw Tag Team Championships AND the Intercontinental Championship, hanging above the ring. Please note, these are internal discussions and nothing is concrete at this time.
We were the FIRST to report the news that the WWE planned to re-unite The Shield. We also reported that The Shield would not be facing The Miztourage, as incorrectly reported by other sites. The original plan was always for The Shield to face Miz, Cesaro and Sheanus, however, when Cesaro’s dental issues temporarily sidelined him, the WWE came up with the contingency plan of having Strowman replace Cesaro. This is why Strowman squashed both Ambrose and Rollins on subsequent episodes of Raws.
Braun Strowman currently isn’t pencilled in to be on the PPV, however, the creative team are contemplating scrapping a Jason Jordan and Matt Hardy vs Gallows and Anderson rematch, in favour of doing a Braun Strowman vs Jason Jordan match. The only reason they would do this is to get Strowman on the card. I have received no information regarding how they will get to this match. If Strowman doesn’t face Jordan, the current plan is for him to interfere in the Cruiserweight Championship match and squash both combatants, in protest of not being booked on the show.
Other matches on the card will see Finn Balor take on Bray Wyatt, with Wyatt set to unleash a new alter ego, Enzo defending his Cruiserweight Championship against Kalisto, and the debut of Asuka, who is likely to face Emma.
