Always have a plan B. As we approach December’s TLC event, one of the big questions is whether or not one of the show’s major matches will be able to take place. Last week, Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin in a Tables Ladders and Chairs match was confirmed for the show. Later in the same night though, Strowman was injured and put on the shelf with a shattered elbow. There’s a real chance he won’t be able to make the show, so what happens if he can’t?
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, there is a strong possibility that Strowman won’t be able to work the show. If that is the case, the match will instead be a multi-man match featuring Corbin ala the 2012 edition of the show. While not confirmed, there is a good chance that this would mean Corbin/Drew McIntyre/Bobby Lashley vs. Finn Balor/Elias/a third partner.
Hearing Braun Strowman may indeed be out past the TLC PPV, and they are preparing to make the TLC match involving Baron Corbin a multi man contest similar to the 2012 TLC PPV.

This kind of match happened before and it was awesome. Check out the original, from TLC 2012:
Opinion: I can understand if that’s the best they have but it’s certainly not something that has me interested. WWE has spent so much time having these same people trade wins and losses that it stopped mattering a long time ago. Corbin and Balor alone have been feuding since the summer and the others aren’t exactly thrilling stories. Hopefully Strowman can come back and destroy Corbin once and for all, because that’s what the story has called for.
