WWE TLC PPV 2018 Predictions

WWE TLC PPV 2018 Predictions

Welcome to my predictions for WWE TLC (Tables, Ladders and Chairs) Pay-Per-View.

TLC is being held in the SAP Center in San Jose, California

Without further ado, let’s get into the predictions!

Non-Title Matches

Singles Match
Finn Bálor vs Drew McIntyre
PREDICTION: This one sparked out of interference between Drew McIntyre vs Dolph Ziggler but it’s good to see Finn in a high-profile match like this and I hope that this feud sparks a match Finn to win!
Singles Match
Elias vs Bobby Lashley
PREDICTION: Ugh, this feud has been pretty terrible because of Lio Rush’s involvement. It’s absolutely terrible and it’s not really showcasing Bobby’s or Elias’ true side and what they can actually do. Bobby to win.
Finals of WWE Mixed Match Challenge Season 2
R-Truth & Carmella vs Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox
PREDICTION: Nothing much to say here, so R-Truth & Carmella to win!
Chairs Match
Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton
PREDICTION: A feud from way back in the day (like over 10 years) has resurfaced and here we go again, Randy has been on fire being a heel but Rey is very very good in the ring. Glad to see him back. Randy Orton to win!
Tables Match
Natalya vs Ruby Riott

PREDICTION: This was a VERY weird feud as it involved Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart how Ruby is not sorry about the death of Natty’s father. But I just cannot see Natty winning this match and it would have to go to Ruby. Ruby Riott to win. And I will say that there will be interference from the rest of the Squad in this match. 

Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match
Braun Strowman vs Baron Corbin
PREDICTION: So with a couple of stipulations on this match. If Braun wins, he gets to face Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble, if Baron wins, he becomes RAW’s General Manager. I don’t think Corbin is going to win this and there will be a storyline where he will be beaten up by the RAW roster going forward into Royal Rumble. Braun to win!

Title Matches

Singles Match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Buddy Murphy (C) vs Cedric Alexander
PREDICTION: I haven’t watched any 205 Live but I am excited about this rematch from Super-Showdown from back in October. Buddy Murphy to retain!
Triple Threat for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship
The Bar (C) vs The New Day vs The Usos
PREDICTION: After the really terrible rap battle that they had on this week’s SmackDown Live, I really couldn’t care about this match, but I feel that Sheamus & Cesaro are going to retain.
Singles Match for the RAW Women’s Championship
Ronda Rousey (C) vs Nia Jax
PREDICTION: Why is this match happening? Oh, because Nia hit Becky? OK… Ronda to retain!
Triple Threat TLC Match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
Becky Lynch (C)
vs Charlotte Flair vs Asuka
PREDICTION: Match of the Night contender here. Becky to retain!
Singles Match for the Intercontinental Championship
Seth Rollins (C) vs Dean Ambrose
PREDICTION: This is probably going to be an all-out brawl and it would be nice to put a title onto Ambrose cause he needs it after being out injured for a very long time. Dean Ambrose to become the NEW IC Title Holder!
Singles Match for the WWE Championship
Daniel Bryan (C) vs AJ Styles
PREDICTION: FICKLE! Err, yeah, the “new” Daniel Bryan seems cool and all. I think there is going to be some shenanigans for the finish that will see Daniel retaining this title. Daniel Bryan to retain!

And that is my predictions. Some matches, I couldn’t really give my thoughts on given how ‘thrown together’ they are and they don’t really serve a purpose other than that the talent being on the card. 

I expect some of these matches to last about 3 – 4 minutes each.

I will be doing a live tweeting session this Sunday night from about 11pm (whenever the pre-show starts) on Twitter: @Wressling_
