This is merry time around the world as Christmas and Holiday seasons are closing around but in the case of a wrestling fan, December brings a plethora of memories to cherish as WWE’s most extreme pay-per-view TLC comes around. This year too seems no exception as WWE had a lot in the tables to offer this Sunday to pull up the dropped ratings as they would like to end the year with a bang leaving us some clues for upcoming Wrestlemania. Here are the analysis and predictions for the last PPV of the year.
Ryback vs. Rusev
This match was made purely not to exclude these two mammoth superstars from a PPV. However, they are not likely to add something new to the event, though. This would probably end up as a forgettable one except the ringside presence of Lana who will eventually help his future husband to give him the win and to retain the momentum with them as a part of the league of Nations.
Prediction: Rusev wins
Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger (United States championship-chairs match)
This feud has a fundamental storyline of its own as an all-American is set to take on an prohibit as the form of Del Rio but WWE did not at all bother to hype it in the past few weeks and the result is quite expected where Del Rio will come out as victorious. The only interested thing is Colter’s role in the match and if he is interested in burying the hatchet with his former ally Swagger.
Prediction: Del Rio retains US Title
Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose (Intercontinental championship)
Plenty to come from this rivalry, least to say as booking them for another PPV and few more matches in the coming weeks is the ideal scenario and WWE has already done that for sure. This is match with 50 percent chances for both, but Kevin Owens’ should retain the title by DQ or count out which will carry forward the rivalry and help Ambrose to win his first IC title with full force.
Prediction: Kevin Owens retains Intercontinental championship title
The New Day vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Usos (Tag Team Championship-Triple threat ladder match)
A triple threat ladder match for the Tag Team title and that too included with high-flying superstars is the perfect scenario for any wrestling fan. The entertainment factor in this match is too high and no match has a better potential as this one. After a show-stealer, The Usos or The new Day has the most chance to walk out, but the title deserves to be stuck around New Day’s waist for few days more.
Prediction: New Day retains the tag title
The Dudley Boyz, Tommy Dreamer and Rhyno vs. The Wyatt Family (8 man tag team elimination Tables match)
Again least to say, Wyatt needs a desperate win. For two times in a row, he is booked with some legendary names in a PPV and, this time, they are on a mission to bulldoze their way through the ECW veterans. This match will be the fun element for the PPV with those tables around the ring and some spectacular table crashing adding to the mayhem. But at the end of the day, the ECW originals don’t need a win at this moment whereas the Wyatt Family does and is going to get.
Prediction: Wyatt family conquers the ECW veterans
Charlotte vs. Paige (Divas championship)
It is in the most confusing scenario right now as WWE is giving us no clues about who is going to be the face or heel in the match and that’s the reason the match has all the potentials to be turned out as a potential disaster. As far as the prediction goes Charlotte is not going to drop the title around this time and Becky will be included in the title scenario post-TLC.
Prediction: Charlotte retains the Divas title
Roman Reigns vs. Sheamus (WWE World Heavyweight Championship- Tables, ladders, chairs match)
Unfortunately, this is the very best that WWE can offer for the fans and Roman Reigns, both. Otherwise, Sheamus would be a no match up comparing this year’s scenario. But, WWE is well aware that taking Sheamus away from the title this early is not going to help them and they are not going to do that for sure. So, they are going to screw Roman once again by getting involved League of Nations or somehow and would like to invest the fans more to this feud, boosting some more sympathy for Reigns thereby.
Prediction: Sheamus retains WWE World Heavyweight Title via interference from League of Nations
