Last night while WWE’s Monday Night RAW was at the TD Garden in Boston, fans in attendance that expected to see a pre-sale promotion run off air for the company’s return to the venue in October for the TLC pay-per-view. The event was slated for October 21st, however there was no mention of TLC made at all through the night. Instead, an advertisement for a dual-branded Supershow featuring Ronda Rousey was announced for the same date (check that out here), leaving many wondering what the status for TLC now is.
TLC had previously emanated from the TD Garden once before, back in December 2015 for a show that featured Sheamus retaining the WWE Title over Roman Reigns in a TLC match main event.
Today, PWInsider is reporting that sources within WWE have confirmed the change as TLC will now take place on December 16th in San Jose, California. Originally, this date and arena were set aside for the Clash Of Champions pay-per-view, which now appears to have been removed altogether from the schedule.
This now means that there is no pay-per-view scheduled for October, however it’s speculated that the WWE Super Show-Down in Australia on October 6th could be viewed as that month’s PPV. This has yet to be confirmed and is merely just rumor for the time being.

WWE News: WWE Network To Air Starrcade Special Next Sunday
Next weekend’s WWE Starrcade event will air on the WWE Network…sort of.
While the WWE Universe is focused on tonight’s NXT TakeOver: War Games II and tomorrow night’s Survivor Series, next Saturday the company will present its second Starrcade event from Cincinnati, Ohio.
After reviving the old NWA/WCW pay-per-view namesake for a special Live Event last year, WWE decided to move this year’s show outside of North Carolina. Yesterday, we noted how some changes were made to the card as the previously scheduled Steel Cage Match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair has been removed (see the full lineup here). At this time, Charlotte is still advertised to appear, however it’s now not known exactly in what capacity she will be used.
Additionally, many fans had hoped that this year’s Starrcade would be available on the WWE Network after missing out on last year’s and it looks like they will be getting their wish in some fashion. PWInsider was the first to report that the WWE Network schedule is listing Starrcade to air as a one-hour special next Sunday, the night after the event, at 8PM EST. Currently, there are no details on which matches from the event will air.
Joey Ryan Gives Details On His Injury, Will Be Undergoing Surgery
Joey Ryan has updated everybody on his injury status!
As we noted in our spoiler coverage, Joey Ryan competed alongside Swoggle at Major League Wrestling’s Fightland television tapings last week in Chicago, however could not use his left arm and revealed after the match that he was injured (see the spoiler results here).
While Joey had yet to see a doctor and learn the full extent of his injury, the belief was he had suffered a torn pec, an injury we also just saw Triple H suffer at WWE Crown Jewel. Ryan has since had an MRI and revealed the full results today via Instagram:
“The MRI revealed that I have an acute tear of the left pectoral major, including a high-grade tear of the clavicular head at the myotendinous junction and a high-grade intratendinous tear of the sternal head with retraction and hemorrhage into the muscle belly. Disorganized fibers of the muscle-tender tear identified within the deltiopectoral groove.
The doctor is recommending surgery and I’m to call the surgeon on Monday or Tuesday to set up an appointment to see them.
A timetable on recovery will be determined by the surgeon.”
While of course nothing concrete can be said until surgery, the recovery time for a torn pec can be as little as five months on the low end, but up to nine months on the higher end of the spectrum should no complications arise.
