Other TLC Thoughts
This will be the first time Becky Lynch will be in action since she was concussed leading into Survivor Series by Nia Jax on an episode of Raw.
The Man has been using her time on the shelf to push her character on social media, but her biggest test as champion will be in a TLC match with Charlotte and Asuka.
Baron Corbin seems to have an easy road ahead of him with Braun Strowman’s injury likely keeping him from competing at TLC, but that doesn’t mean some kind of swerve isn’t possible.
Stephanie McMahon could always choose another person to fight The Lone Wolf for the right to lead Raw. Kurt Angle is an obvious choice, but WWE could always try to surprise us with a choice out of left field. Perhaps this is the perfect time for Lars Sullivan to make his debut.
Surprisingly, the WWE title match between AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan was not given one of the special stipulations, but if this feud is meant to continue for a couple of months, it was wise to keep this as a standard matchup for now.
TLC has a lot of potential based on the card WWE has put together, but as always, it’s the execution that makes for a good PPV, not the intention.
