WWE TLC 2016 full match previews: AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose, Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss, Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler, more!

Don't miss WWE's TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view (PPV), streamed live on WWE Network!

Live from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, this is the eighth TLC and the third SmackDown-only PPV of the company's newest brand split era, which began in July.

In the main event, AJ Styles will defend his WWE World championship against Dean Ambrose in a match where all three objects from the show’s name (and plenty else besides) will be legal.

Every title on the blue brand is up for grabs in Texas, and most of the championship matches will have a TLC-related stipulation. For the Intercontinental belt, where Dolph Ziggler’s tries to once again defeat the Miz for that title, it’ll depend on who can climb a ladder to retrieve the strap. Alexa Bliss will have to put Becky Lynch through a table to claim the Women’s championship. Only the tag belts do not have an extreme stipulation, although Heath Slater & Rhyno will have to overcome not only Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton, but likely Luke Harper, to keep their titles.

The other two matches announced for Sunday, Dec. 4 will also be fought under rules which encourage brutality. Nikki Bella looks to teach Carmella some respect once and for all in a no disqualification match, while Kalisto will have more than just his speed & agility to make up for Baron Corbin’s size advantage - but both men get to swing steel in their Chairs match!

A pre-show leads into the three hour main show, and features a panel discussion of all the matches. You can find the Kickoff on WWE Network and YouTube (among other places - like right here at cSs!).

The main broadcast will begin at 8PM ET/5PM PT. For all the ways to watch this annual event, sign-up at, or consult you cable or satellite provider.

We'll have everything you need to get ready for TLC, as well as coverage during the show and all the fallout afterwards, right here at cSs!
