WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs Preview #WWETLC

By Brandon Albright, @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE brings you the WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs Preview. This will be the eighth edition in the TLC event in WWE history. WWE TLC will take place live at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. You can catch the event live on the WWE Network, but if you're busy, working, or just want to wait and read the recaps, be sure to check out Triple Threat CLE on Monday afternoon and I will provide you with the WWE TLC recap.

- "WWE World Heavyweight Championship, TLC Match": AJ Styles (c) vs. Dean Ambrose: Last month on a Smackdown Live edition, Dean Ambrose came out victorious against AJ Styles, earning himself a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match at WWE TLC. Smackdown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon made the match official and also made it a "Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match", which obviously meant that all would be legal in the match. Ambrose and Styles would then be forced to team up together at WWE Survivor Series on Team Smackdown Live, as they battled Team RAW. Ambrose and Styles failed to keep their cool with each other, as they argued and then began to brawl. Braun Strowman took advantage and pinned Ambrose in the process, eliminating Ambrose from the match. Ambrose returned later in the match, seeking revenge on Styles and helped Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins triple power bomb Styles through a table, causing Styles to be eliminated. Can Styles retain his championship in one of WWE's most violent, career shortening matches? Can Ambrose finally get his revenge on Styles and win back his WWE World Heavyweight Championship?

- "WWE Intercontinental Championship, Ladder Match": The Miz (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler: Last month The Miz battled Dolph Ziggler on the 900th episode of Smackdown with the WWE Intercontinental Championship on the line. The Miz, with the help from his wife Maryse and The Spirit Squad, defeated Ziggler to win the championship. The Miz went on to defend the WWE Intercontinental Championship successfully against Sami Zayn at WWE Survivor Series. The Miz would then again defend the WWE Intercontinental Championship successfully with the help from Baron Corbin and defeat Kalisto. After the match, Dolph Ziggler returned, laid out Miz with a super kick and demanded his rematch that he still deserved. Smackdown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan officially announced that The Miz would defend the WWE Intercontinental Championship against Dolph Ziggler at WWE TLC in a Ladder Match. This match is also being advertised as the last time The Miz and Ziggler will face each other for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Which former Clevelander will walk out with the championship.

- "WWE Smackdown Live World Tag Team Championship Match": Heath Slater and Rhyno (c) vs. Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton: American Alpha was originally set to face Slater and Rhyno for the WWE SmackDown Live World Tag Team Championship, however, The Wyatt Family stepped up and challenged Double A for the spot. 5 days before WWE TLC, American Alpha battled The Wyatt Family with the winners advancing to face Slater and Rhyno at WWE TLC. The Wyatt Family came out with the victory and became the new #1 Contenders. The Wyatt Family, who were the sole survivors on the 5-on-5 Men's Elimination Match at WWE Survivor Series have promised to take the titles next and continue their reign of terror in the WWE.

- "WWE Smackdown Live Women's Championship, Tables Match": Becky Lynch (c) vs. Alexa Bliss: Two months ago at WWE No Mercy, Becky Lynch was forced to postpone her title match with Alexa Bliss to a later date due to a personal injury. Alexa finally got her shot at Becky at the beginning of November on Smackdown Live, however, came up short and lost. There was controversy in the match, as Becky had Alexa trapped in her submission hold, Alexa tapped out, but Alexa had her feet under the ropes before the tap out which should have made the submission win voided. Alexa demanded a rematch in week's to come before WWE TLC, feeling she deserved one after the referee's poor decision and costing her the match. Becky agreed to give Alexa a rematch at WWE TLC. Alexa would attack and beat down Becky after her match with Nattie Neidhart two weeks before WWE TLC and then told Becky to shine up the title because Alexa is guaranteeing victory. The feud heated up even more as Alexa would put Becky through a table 5 days before WWE TLC and got a Tables Match stipulation added to the title match.

- "Chairs Match": Baron Corbin vs. Kalisto: Back in August, Corbin viciously attacked Kalisto and put him out of action for two months. Kalisto returned and got a bit of redemption as he attacked Corbin, injured Corbin's knee and took Corbin out of the WWE Survivor Series 5-on-5 Men's Elimination Match. Corbin showed up at WWE Survivor Series anyway and attacked Kalisto, stopping Kalisto from winning the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Two days later Corbin would again distract Kalisto and stop Kalisto from winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Kalisto returned the favor, as Corbin battled Kane one on one, Kalisto attacked Corbin with a steel chair and laid out Corbin. Smackdown Live GM Daniel Bryan officially announced that Corbin and Kalisto would meet at WWE TLC in a "Chairs Match" to finally settle their differences. 

- "No DQ Match": Nikki Bella vs. Carmella: Nikki Bella returned from neck surgery back in August and was immediately targeted by NXT up and comer Carmella. Carmella repeatedly attacked Nikki week after week which escalated the feud further. Carmella was forced to team with Nikki Bella on the 5-on-5 Women's Elimination Match at WWE Survivor Series. Nikki, however, was attacked before the match and was replaced by Nattie Neidhart. Nikki immediately suspected that Carmella was the culprit and looked to get revenge on her. Nikki stated that she didn't care if it was Carmella, who denied doing it, but she would settle things with Carmella once and for all in a No DQ Match.
