They sure build them fast these days. We’re about two weeks away from TLC and the show isn’t the strongest in the world yet. The top matches have been set but you can’t have a full card just with that. Therefore, it’s time to start building up the card by adding in some more, which is exactly what WWE did today in two different announcements, both which saw the card grow.
Some of those were announced here. Check out what you’ll get to see in December:
In a pair of announcements today, WWE has added three different matches to the TLC card. As seen in the video above, Bobby Lashley will face Elias and Finn Balor will square off against Drew McIntyre. As announced on WWE.com, the Bar will defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against the Usos and the New Day. At the moment, there are no gimmicks or stipulations announced for any of the three matches.
Opinion: Most of these aren’t exactly huge matches or any kind of a surprise, but these can be the backbone of the show. You probably have an hour of content here, which is almost a third of the run time. That’s not bad for one day of build up and you’ll probably get some good matches out of this group. At least the triple threat match should be fun, as those teams have great chemistry together.
Which of these matches interests you most? Who will win all three? Let us know in the comments below.
