WWE TLC 2016: Becky Lynch versus Alexa Bliss full match preview

The Match up:

WWE’s SmackDown Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, takes on number one contender, Alexa Bliss, in a Table’s match for the blue brand’s women’s title, this Sunday, December 4, in the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas. Who is going through a table? The lass kicking champ or five feet of fury?

The Road to TLC:

Lynch and Bliss met in a great match last month in Glascow, Scotland for the SD Women’s Championship, airing on SmackDown Live. This happened because Lynch was unable to compete when the match was originally scheduled for No Mercy for October. As clearly stated in the above video, Bliss may have tapped to the Dis-Arm-Her but her foot was on the bottom rope. The referee was out of position therefore Bliss was awarded another match for this Sunday.

The tension between Lynch and Bliss reached a fever pit on the go-home episode of SmackDown Live this past week during the contract signing for this Sunday’s match. Bliss actually put the Champ through a table, slightly injuring Lynch’s back. This prompted the Pun Master to call Alexa a "little bitch" in an interview later on and she showed straight fire in her Talking Smack segment, calling herself a honey badger.

The Stakes:

The WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship is on the line. Plus, a Tables match heightens the possibility of one or both of the ladies getting hurt. Both have stated that they are willing to put the other through countless amounts of tables in order to win. Neither is backing down an inch and this will surely prove to be a brutal all out war for the highest prize for the SDL ladies.

WWE TLC airs live this Sunday, December 4, 2016 on the WWE Network at 7 pm central time. Join us here at Cageside Seats for the live blog!
