TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs 2018 Final Match Card
It’s that time of the year again. Time to cozy up next to a loved one, turn on the Hallmark channel, make some hot chocolate and lovingly body slam your loved ones through a wooden table. TLC, BAY-BAY!
WWE’s human demolition derby is back again this year. Wasn’t in October last year? Nope, it wasn’t. Shut up.
Mixed Match Challenge Finals: Fabulous Truth (Carmella and R-Truth) vs Mahalicia (Alicia Fox and Jinder Mahal)
The second edition of WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge is almost complete. The winning mixed duo will receive the coveted number thirty spot in their respective Royal Rumble matches.
WWE Intercontinental Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs Dean Ambrose
Dean Ambrose is the “bane” of Seth Rollins’ existence as of late since turning on The SHIELD. Expect Seth to dress as Batman for this match.
Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Match: Braun Strowman vs Baron Corbin
If Braun Strowman can overcome his elbow injury and win this contest, he will earn a shot at Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. If Baron Corbin can pull off the unthinkable, then he will be the permanent Monday Night RAW general manager.
RAW Women’s Championship: Ronda Rousey (c) vs Nia Jax
Nia won a battle royal at Evolution to earn another shot at Ronda Rousey. That’s it, really.
WWE Championship: Daniel Bryan (c) vs AJ Styles
D*ck kick city, b*tch. The NEW Daniel Bryan with his dastardly talk about natural resource preservation and recycling has gone too far. AJ is using his contractually obligated title rematch.
TLC Triple Threat SmackDown Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs Charlotte Flair vs Asuka
The Man. The Queen. The Empress of Tomorrow. This has already earned an “A” in graded so one can expect this to be the match of the night.
Finn Balor vs Drew McIntyre
They needed to fill a slot and forgot Shinsuke has a title.
Ladder Match with a Guitar hanging above the ring: Elias vs Bobby Lashley
Though I can see Elias winning this because it’s his thing, I wouldn’t be shocked if Lio Rush grabbed the guitar for Lashley first.
SmackDown Tag Team Championships Triple Threat Tag: The Bar (c) vs The Usos vs The New Day
Sometimes you have all the ingredients for a really, REALLY good match. This is one of those times. If Charlotte, Becky, and Asuka somehow screw up the Match of the Year, then this match should be a good back-up.
Tables Match: Ruby Riott vs Natalya
Ruby has made this out of nowhere feud personal. Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart’s picture will be pasted on a table. Can Natalya overcome the Riott Squad’s numbers?
WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Buddy Murphy (c) vs Cedric Alexander
Maybe if the SmackDown Women’s title match or the Triple Threat SmackDown tag match gets cancelled this will be the match of the night. My point is that three matches on this card could be Match of the Night.
Two of the best Superstars in WWE right now go head-to-head in a Super Show-Down rematch.
Chairs Match: Randy Orton vs Rey Mysterio
Rumors say RKO is feared for one reason, but Randy says it’s because of how sadistic and dangerous he is. Rey’s upset he has to keep buying new masks.
One of my life goals is to go through a table during a wrestling match and no that isn’t messed up…
