Three new matches have been added to the WWE's Tables, Ladders, and Chairs pay-per-view taking place this weekend on December 13.
According to NoDQ, the WWE confirmed last night on Raw that Charlotte will once again face off against Paige in a Divas Championship match, Alberto Del Rio will put his United States Championship on the line against Jack Swagger in a Chairs match, and The Dudley Boyz, Tommy Dreamer and Rhyno will take on The Wyatt Family in an Eight-man Tag Team Elimination Tables match.
These matches join the card that already has a Triple Threat Tag Team Ladder match for the Tag Team Championship between The New Day, The Usos, and The Lucha Dragons, and a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship between Roman Reigns and Sheamus.

Most of the matches added last night were expected, it was just a simple case of picking the final member for the Team ECW in their clash against The Wyatts. However, similar to Hell in a Cell, just because some extreme wrestlers are included, doesn't mean we're jumping into a time machine to relive bloody matches, although that's how the WWE will probably try to book it.
The Eight-man tag match will probably be the highlight of the evening, as there will be several spots of Wyatt Family members going through tables, but that's the most concerning thing; The Wyatt Family being buried once again. Hopefully this doesn't happen, but many thought WWE would put over Bray Wyatt against The Undertaker at Survivor Series, but he was beaten clean again like he was at WrestleMania 31.
Sunday provides the perfect opportunity for the WWE to give The Wyatt Family their first pay-per-view win in quite some time, but if they don't, it's impossible to see how the company could salvage Wyatt's persona of being The New Face of Fear. You can't just turn him face, as that ruins the concept they've been trying to build with the family, but that seems to be the only right direction.
The Wyatt Family entrance with the fireflies is already receiving a face type of reaction, because so many people interact with it with their phones etc. as lights. Go one step further and create Wyatt as the anti-hero would gravatate even more fans to him. Have him go up against Sheamus and the rest of The Authority and The League of Nations would be the best way right now to go about it.
Doing this would allow the WWE to keep his mind games going and The New Face of Fear persona too, so long as they tweak it accordingly and play Wyatt as an anti-hero. A face turn is the way to go in order to salvage what is left of Bray Wyatt that hasn't been destroyed by awful booking this year.
