4 Matches which could main event WWE TLC 2018
WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs will be the final PPV of the year for the WWE and the Creative team have booked several interesting matches for the event.
The match card thus far looks as follows -
Intercontinental Championship -- Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin (TLC match)
Raw Women's Championship -- Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nia Jax
SmackDown Women's Championship -- Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka (TLC match)
SmackDown Tag Team Championship -- The Bar (c) vs. The Usos vs. New Day
Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre
Elias vs. Bobby Lashley
Well, the SmackDown show have quite a credible card for the show, the same cannot be said of the RAW side. They have the same monotonous matches in Finn Balor vs Drew McIntyre and Elias vs Bobby Lashley which we have watched on WWE TV several times.
However, it would be interesting to see which match the WWE Creative team chooses to close the show. Here are the top 4 candidates -
#4 Daniel Bryan (C) vs AJ Styles for the WWE Championship
It's been a long, long time since the WWE Championship was defended in the main event of a pay-per-view and with the Universal Champion Brock Lesnar absent from TLC this could be WWE's best opportunity to let their most prestigious title close the show. Daniel Bryan had featured in the main event of WWE Survivor Series after winning the WWE Championship and he could also boast himself of being a better champion by main eventing the second consecutive pay-per-view.
AJ Styles vs Daniel Bryan could main event any wrestling show on this planet and it would be disappointing to see this match get an unimportant position on the card.
#3 Braun Strowman vs Baron Corbin (Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match)
This match could very well be Baron Corbin's last match as the General Manager of Monday Night RAW since the Monster Among Men will definitely return and destroy the Lone Wolf. WWE could have Strowman return to a thunderous reaction after having Corbin cut a heelish promo and instructing the referee to initiate a 10 count, at the end of the show.
Braun would come out with a ladder and beat the hell out of Corbin. He would also hit him with numerous chair shots before putting him through a table and pinning him for the three counts inside mere minutes to stand tall at the end of TLC. The only position this match should get on the card is the main event because placing it in the middle of the show would devalue its importance.
#2 Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair vs Asuka (Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match for the SD Live Women's Championship)
In a first, the women of the WWE will battle in a tables, ladders and chairs match. This reason is enough to give the SD Live Women's title match the main event position since the WWE has a tradition of ending the TLC pay-per-view with a TLC match. The triple threat match would also mark Becky Lynch's return to the ring as the Irish Lasskicker last wrestled Nikki Cross on a SmackDown episode almost a month ago.
Becky, Charlotte and Asuka are three of the best female wrestlers on earth and with the freedom to use tables, chairs and ladders in the match, it guarantees a spectacle for the fans. The last woman standing match between Flair and Lynch exceeded expectations at WWE Evolution and this triple threat title match promises to even better that.
#1 Ronda Rousey vs Nia Jax for the RAW Women's Championship
The reason why WWE would want this match to close the show is this match would lay the groundwork for a dream match at WrestleMania 35. Charlotte Flair vs Ronda Rousey seemed to be WWE's plan for WM 35 but with the growth of Becky's popularity it looks like this match would become a triple threat match and may even become the first woman's match to main event WrestleMania.
