The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the TLC event set to take place on Sun., Dec. 13, 2015, at the TD Garden Arena in Boston, Massachusetts, the company's annual end of the year showcase playing off the popular Tables, Ladders, and Chairs gimmick match that took the pro wrestling world by storm in the early 2000s.
We're just one week out from showtime and a few matches are official for the show:
- Sheamus vs. Roman Reigns (WWE world heavyweight championship)
Reigns gets a rematch for the title automatically, and WWE has spent the weeks in between creating a heel faction, The League of Nations, to oppose him. This will be a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match.
- Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose (Intercontinental championship)
Ambrose won a triple threat match on SmackDown last week to earn this match. This after pinning Tyler Breeze in the semifinals of the WWE world heavyweight title tournament.
- The New Day vs. Lucha Dragons vs. The Usos (Tag team championship)
The Dragons and Usos had a match to determine top contender. New Day ran in and caused a double disqualification, so Stephanie McMahon gave them both title shots. Before SmackDown this week, it was announced it would be a Ladder match.
It's expected that matches like Charlotte vs. Paige, The Dudley Boyz vs. The Wyatt Family, Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger, and Dolph Ziggler vs. Tyler Breeze will be added to the show.
