WWE finally confirmed some matches for their TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs pay-per-view on SmackDown this week, one which includes the Universal Champion Bray Wyatt.
However, the interesting tidbit for Wyatt's match is that it's actually him, Bray Wyatt, that has been booked for the match, and not his alter ego The Fiend.
Bray Wyatt vs The Miz is one of three matches that WWE booked for TLC on SmackDown last night. Currently, the Universal title won't be on the line in this match.
The other two matches are a TLC match between Roman Reigns and King Corbin, and a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match of The New Day vs The Revival.
Wyatt vs Miz was booked after Bray baited The Miz to the backstage area after showing a photo of Miz’s wife Maryse and their kids during his Firefly Fun House segment at the start of SmackDown.

Backstage, Miz then found an edited photo of his family, with Wyatt in the picture instead of him. He was then attacked from behind by Bray, who was not in his Fiend character.
WWE quickly followed this up by booking Wyatt vs Miz for TLC, and based on the graphic they posted and the backstage segment on SmackDown, it looks like it will be Bray Wyatt competing, not The Fiend.
This will be the first time Wyatt has had a match in WWE since he returned to the ring earlier this year with The Fiend persona.
We'll have to wait and see if this changes over the next week. SmackDown was also the first time Wyatt has got physical in any storyline he's been involved in.
The Miz and The Fiend are yet to interact directly on WWE TV, but they did have a dark match against one another after the 205 Live tapings had concluded.
Unsurprisingly, The Fiend managed to win the match.
Any WWE fans expecting to see The Fiend at TLC may be disappointed, as for the time being, he won't be wrestling at the show. It will be Bray Wyatt instead.News Now - Sport News
