WWE’s final pay-per-view event of 2019 is TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs taking place this Sunday, December 15th. The show, as always, is highlighted by matches with the namesake stipulation added to them.
This year’s event will feature a TLC match between Roman Reigns and Baron Corbin, a Tables match between Rusev and Bobby Lashley, and another TLC match for the Women’s Tag Team titles with the Kabuki Warriors of Asuka and Kairi Sane against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch.
In year’s past this event has been rather “chalk” with all of the favorites winning their matches. It’s the last WWE event of the year and December isn’t always a big time for viewership so this show is often treated as an afterthought. That doesn’t mean big things won’t happen here, just don’t expect some landscape changing event.
Let’s take a look at the full odds.
WWE TLC Betting Odds:
- Aleister Black (-625) vs Buddy Murphy (+350)
- Non-title: Bray Wyatt (-1250) vs The Miz (+550)
- TLC: Roman Reigns (-910) vs Baron Corbin (+450)
- Tables: Rusev (-150) vs Bobby Lashley (+108)
- The New Day (-265) vs The Revival (+180)
- TLC: Kabuki Warriors (-230) vs Becky/Charlotte (+160)
My big question here is, what’s going to be the main event? My gut says it will be Roman Reigns versus Baron Corbin in the TLC match as that match has been built very well on television, but I’m not sure that is the best choice.
The Kabuki Warriors taking on Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair could be the best match on this show and would be my pick to go on last. These women can absolutely steal this show and it would be a fun callback to last year when Charlotte Flair, Asuka, and Becky Lynch faced of in a TLC match. That match ended with Ronda Rousey coming out to cost Becky Lynch the match. Could we see a repeat of that here with either Shayna Baszler or Ronda Rousey making her return?
Bray Wyatt, not The Fiend, will be facing The Miz on this show and because it’s not The Fiend, it’s not for the Universal title? I guess? I am having a hard time getting into this one as while I love The Miz, I don’t see him having any sort of chance here. Just feels like a placeholder match to get Bray/Fiend to Rumble.
The match with the most story behind it is Rusev versus Bobby Lashley. Not the best story, the most story. It involves Lana cheating on Rusev with Bobby Lashley and wanting to divorce him. Monday saw them go through the table that Rusev was supposed to sign divorce papers which lead to this match. I have trouble seeing this as the blow-off to this feud and could see the underdog taking the win here.
This show will also have Aleister Black taking on Buddy Murphy. This match should really be something else, but it feels designed for a Black win. He’s somebody they are really getting behind right now and I can’t say I get the same feeling about Murphy. He’s a huge favorite here and I’d be surprised to see him lose.
We also have the New Day defending the Smackdown tag team titles against the Revival. Hey, remember when Kofi Kingston was champion? Anyway, there are too many rumors of the Revival seeking their release from WWE for me to go with them here. New Day rocks, again. Let’s get the Usos back at some point.
