Some notable stats coming out of WWE TLC

WWE set the PPV to close the year, and we got one of the most exciting match card ever. Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns both defended their respective Championships in TLC Matches.

Speaking of TLC matches, as per WWE Stats & Info, defending Champions heading into a TLC match have a 59% chance of retaining their Championships.

Plus, this year marks 100% in championship defense in TLC matches. Drew McIntyre vs AJ Styles and Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens were the 27th and 28th WWE TLC Matches.

The Scottish Warrior‘ has had a wonderful time at the TLC PPV. Exactly a decade ago, he won the Intercontinental Championship from John Morrison at TLC. This year, he defended his WWE Championship successfully.

This was the first WWE TLC pay-per-view after the 2016 brand split where the SmackDown Women’s Championship did not change hands. Otherwise, it was the only Women’s Championship to have crowned a new champion at WWE TLC.

TLC marked the first time the duo of Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods lost a Tag Team Championship as partners. All the times that The New Day has lost their championship, Big E was one of the partners. It also marks Shelton Benjamin’s first Tag Team Championship in WWE since 2003!

The Stats don’t end here!

For those who don’t know, there were WWF Women’s Tag Team Championship back in the 80s too! Velvet McIntyre was the first woman to hold the championship with two different partner’s back then. She held it with Princess Victoria and Desiree Petersen.
