The next WWE pay-per-view is Tables, Ladders & Chairs (TLC) on Sunday, December 16. It takes place at the SAP Center in San Jose, California at 7pmET/4pmET on WWE Network.
Here’s the lineup that we know so far after WWE TV this week.
WWE Championship: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. AJ Styles
Intercontinental Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match: Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin (If Strowman wins, he challenges Lesnar for the Universal Title at Royal Rumble. If Corbin wins, he is full-time GM of Raw.)
Raw Women’s Championship: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nia Jax
Finals of Mixed Match Challenge (Teams to be determined.)
It’s possible that there will be stipulations on some of those matches. Every year at TLC, WWE likes to have one TLC match (they already have that), plus a Ladder Match, Tables Match and a Chairs Match, so we could see those stipulations added to one of those matches above. If I had to guess, I can see Rollins vs. Ambrose becoming a Ladder Match although that could go to Bryan vs. Styles too.
Regarding Braun Strowman, here’s the update from WWE.com on his status:
Braun Strowman will be undergoing surgery on his shattered elbow, WWE.com has learned.
The injury to his elbow was the result of a brutal attack at the hands of Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley on Monday Night Raw. Strowman is currently scheduled to face Corbin in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match at WWE TLC on Sunday, Dec. 16.
Will The Monster Among Men be fully healed in time compete against Corbin in just four short weeks? Stick with WWE.com and social media for updates on Braun Strowman’s status as they become available.
The real story is Strowman did legitimately need surgery on his elbow to remove bone chips and WWE is hopeful that he’ll be ready in less than four weeks at TLC for the match against Corbin. If not, Strowman could rest until he’s ready and then have that Royal Rumble match against Brock Lesnar in January that was set up on Raw.
