WWE could be making some changes to the main event of TLC.
Only one match for the upcoming event has been officially announced, which is Alexa Bliss defending the Raw Women’s Title against Mickie James. WWE officials are expected to be announcing more matches for the event in the coming weeks. It’s well known that the main event will feature the reunion of The Shield.
The Shield, who featured Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns, was a different kind of stable that was created with NXT Superstars. The group teamed together until June 2014, after which Reigns entered singles competition. Ever since the group split up, fans have turned on Reigns despite him being portrayed as a babyface.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Denver, CO at the Pepsi Center on the USA Network, WWE teased The Shield reuniting in the closing segment of the show where Reigns, Ambrose, and Rollins all stood in the locker room while shaking their heads at each other. It was reported a week ago that WWE is planning a reunion for the group at the upcoming TLC PPV.
It appears that WWE is setting up a six-man tag team match that would see The Shield take on The Miz, Sheamus, and Cesaro at the TLC PPV. If the match is to take place, it could be announced after next week's edition of MizTV. The Miz will interview Cesaro and Sheamus in that segment.
However, it appears that WWE will be changing their plans. Dave Meltzer speculated in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Braun Strowman could possibly be included in the match. The longtime professional wrestling reporter noted that he could either replace The Miz or just be added to the match making it a 4-on-3 handicap match.
In case Strowman does indeed replace the Intercontinental Champion then it would open up an Intercontinental title match on the card. Meltzer believes that Strowman’s has interacted with Ambrose and Rollins over the last two weeks makes one of these possibilities very likely.
The TLC pay-per-view event takes place on October 22nd at the Target Center in Minnesota, Minneapolis and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. This will be an exclusive RAW brand event.
