After last month's atrocious Survivor Series, the WWE needs to execute a good/great show to top off 2015. 2015 was the best year in wrestling in the past decade but could fall flat if the last two PPV shows are duds. So far for Tables, Ladders and Chairs we have Roman Reigns vs. Sheamus for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a TLC match, Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose for the Intercontinental Championship and The New Day defending the WWE Tag Team titles vs. The Lucha Dragons and The Usos in a Ladder match.
So far the card looks good but I have a feeling the main event between Reigns and Sheamus will be plagued with interference from other members of the League of Nations. With five days till the event we will probably get a few matches announced on Raw. These are other matches that should be included.
The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan) vs. The Dudley Boys, Tommy Dreamer and Mystery Partner in a Tables Match
This match has been teased in the past few weeks and with the addition of Tommy Dreamer it seems like they will add another ECW original to their team. Some say RVD but I think Rhyno could be a reasonable partner. Both guys could have good spots but I really want to see Erick Rowan get gored through a table so I’m going with Rhyno. This could be a good tables match, which has rarely occurred. The Wyatts should go over since they got destroyed by the Brothers of Destruction at Survivor Series.
Paige vs. Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch for the WWE Divas Championship
It seems random for the WWE to add Becky Lynch into the title picture since she has been an afterthought since being called up but in the last week she has been “screwed” or cheated by Charlotte twice. Charlotte turning heel would be better than her forced babyface act but that would leave Becky as the lone babyface. The Lass Kicker could be framed as a gullible, nice friend but that was what helped her breakout in NXT as a star in the NXT’s women division. I would love to see Becky steal a win from Paige and Charlotte and become the new Divas Champion. This would set up Charlotte turning heel and them facing at Royal Rumble.
Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio for the United States Championship in a Chairs Match
This feud has fallen flat due to no one caring about either man and with Del Rio now part of the League of Nations is the MexiAmerican crap done? Del Rio was the last person I wanted to see back in the WWE and at 38 years old the spotlight should be on a young star like Kalisto. Swagger is so damaged people just don’t care. He hasn’t been on Raw in months and has lived on Superstars. The crowd will sit on their hands in the TD Garden but maybe the Chairs stipulation will save this disaster. Maybe, people.
The WWE will probably throw Ziggler vs. Breeze for the 10th time on the pre-show which will be a classic just like the first nine and have some backstage segments. If the matches are good in-ring wise that is all you can ask for with a lousy build for the last PPV in the year.
