WWE TLC Match Card

WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens (TLC match)

Roman Reigns’ latest championship reign started after he returned, following his hiatus because of COVID-19. His feud with his cousin, Jey Uso, made headlines within the WWE Universe. However, after he defeated him, and brought him to his side, Kevin Owens wanted a shot at the title.

Just to prove his passion for the title, Owens attacked Jey Uso to agitate ‘The Tribal Chief’. It worked, but failed too. While Reigns wanted to tear Owens limb to limb, he wanted to do it in his own time.

On one particular SmackDown event, Owens challenged him then and there. He accepted the challenge but agreed to execute it if it happened at WWE TLC. However, ‘KO’ could not get him inside the ring for a match ahead of the event.

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre vs. AJ Styles

‘The Scottish Psychopath’ and ‘The Phenomenal One’ have been taking shots at each other for the past few Raw episodes. With Omos by his side, Styles is walking around like he’s invincible. Little does he know that Drew McIntyre is in no mood to lose another event following his defeat at the hands of Roman Reigns at Survivor Series 2020.

Now, Sheamus has been feuding with AJ Styles, who showed what he is capable of with a chair. He might show up at the match to make things interesting.

Bray Wyatt ‘The Fiend’ vs. Randy Orton

Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton have come face-to-face in the past to dominate one another.

Since then Randy Orton has discovered ‘The Fiend’s’ weakness, lit the casket on fire, and threatened to destroy him. On the other hand, ‘The Fiend’ has constantly played mind games with ‘The Legend Killer’ and provoked him to dive into his darkest side.

Now, they return to the WWE TLC ring to show the universe who is better between ‘The Monster Among Men’ and ‘The Viper’.

Alexa Bliss might play a role during this match.

WWE Raw Tag Team Champions vs. The Hurt Business

The feud between The New Day and The Hurt Business has been on-going for a while. Whether it’s Kofi Kingston defeating Shelton Benjamin, or Cedric Alexander defeating Kofi Kingston, it’s been a long ride.

In fact, Jeff Hardy teamed up with The New Day to battle The Hurt Business. The former team lost when Lashley pinned Hardy.

SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks vs. Carmella

Carmella returned to WWE with the message that she is ‘Untouchable’. Having made that claim, she immediately set her eyes on the championship. To fulfill her mission, she attacked ‘The Boss’ and convinced her to put her title on the line at WWE TLC.

There are other Superstars in the female division who want that belt over their shoulders just as much. Only time will tell if one of them will grace the ring with their presence and take the match one level up.

WWE Women’s Raw Tag Team Champions vs. Asuka & TBD

The champions, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, were supposed to battle Asuka and Lana at WWE TLC. Unfortunately, at the latest episode of Raw, Lana defeated Nia Jax, who in turn could not digest the humiliation.

Jax and Baszler attacked Lana and twisted her ankle and knee in every way possible. As a result, she had to pull out of TLC because of injuries.

WWE is yet to announce who will partner with Asuka to battle the current champions.
