The updated card for Sunday’s WWE TLC!
Now that this week’s editions of Monday Night RAW, SmackDown Live and the Mixed Match Challenge are officially in the books, the WWE Universe turns its attention to Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view.
There were some alterations and additions to the card at the SAP Center in San Jose, California, but not the ones some fans expected with Braun Strowman still recovering from surgery and Finn Balor off of the road due to an illness (read that story here). On RAW, we learned that the Elias vs. Bobby Lashley bout will now be a Ladder Match where a guitar will be hanging above the ring and the first main to gain possession can utilize it (see the announcement here).
Then yesterday, it was announced that Buddy Murphy would defend his Cruiserweight Title against Cedric Alexander (find that here) and on SmackDown Live last night, it was revealed that Randy Orton would take on Rey Mysterio in a Chairs Match (check that out here). Plus, the Finals of the Mixed Match Challenge are now set after Carmella and R-Truth, as well as Alicia Fox and Jinder Mahal solidified their spots (read the breakdown with Mitchell’s Mixed Match Challenge Report).
Here’s a look at the updated lineup for TLC, which you can catch Sunday live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network (Mixed Match Challenge Finals will also live stream on Facebook Watch) beginning at 7PM EST with the Kickoff starting at 6PM. At this time, it’s not known what will be on the Kickoff, however it’s speculated one or two matches will be moved there instead of any new ones being announced. Of course, that’s not confirmed:
