This PPV just went from good to great. WWE made some huge changes just days before the TLC PPV due to a viral infection going around. Now we have a WrestleMania worthy match of Finn Balor vs AJ Styles and the return of the Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle to team up with the shield to face The Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro(The Bar), Braun Strowman and Kane in a 3on 5 TLC handicap match. Asuka will also be making her long awaited main roster debut to take on Emma. WWE has been having a tough time these past couple of weeks especially with superstars requesting leave and walking out on the company but we should still have a good PPV tomorrow night. Here are all my match predictions for the PPV.
Sasha Banks defeats Alicia Fox (Kickoff Show)
I really do not care for this matchup it will most likely be decent at best. Alicia is a seasoned veteran but Sasha Banks will put out the victory just to keep her a little relevant until they figure out what else they want to do with her. I’m hoping a potential Bayley and Sasha feud with Bayley turning heel
Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher defeat Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann
205 live has a lot of great talent but can’t pick up steam like a lot of people expected it too. I like the duo of Gallagher and Kendrick and that heel turn was a good one. They need to keep the momentum rolling with Gallagher because he does make a really good serious heel and is still keeping his gentleman look intact. The match should be a B+ match at best but in the end Kendrick and Gallagher are going to outsmart Cedric and Rich.
Enzo Amore defeats Kalisto
I am a believer that they took the title off Enzo way too soon. His heel turn was a work of magic and it was working very well for him. It catered to his mic skills and lack of in ring ability. He made 205 live a must watch show because everyone was tuning in to see him get beat up by the whole roster and wonder who was going to be next to take the title off of him. They could have used that opportunity to see who the fans wanted to be champion. I think Enzo is definitely going to outsmart Kalisto and get his boo back then go back to talking smack and telling everyone how 205 live was nothing until he came along. He is really turning this so call demotion into a promotion.
Asuka defeats Emma
Their first match was really good and I don’t expect anything less than an encore performance. This will be Asuka first match on the main roster and still no one is ready for Asuka. Asuka will win this match and keep the undefeated streak alive. I see her being the champion really soon like maybe survivor series.
Alexa Bliss (C) defeats Mickie James
As much as I would love to see Mickie James wins another women’s championship it’s just not going to happen. WWE officials seem very high on Alexa Bliss and she is doing a good job as a heel on raw. Alexa will take down Mickie James and most likely go on to Survivor series and lose to Asuka. I like Alexa Bliss but it is time for a change of scenery in the women’s division. Yes she is very beautiful and talented but the raw women’s division is kind of stale right now with no good story lines. The best one they can have they are not using (Bailey and Sasha Banks feud with Bailey heel
AJ Styles Beats Finn Balor
Besides the Kurt Angle return this is the must see match on the PPV and should be main event. If you didn’t know Bray Wyatt was pulled from this match due to the viral infection that is going around and AJ was the replacement. I picked AJ to win this only because I am a fan and I think he is better than Finn despite the fact he is a great in ring competitor. Overall I really just want to watch this match as it should be a match of the year candidate
The Miz, Braun Strowman, Sheamus and Cesaro (The Bar), and Kane defeats Kurt Angle, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins
Kurt Angle will make his return in a very big match with the odds against him. Kurt hasn’t wrestled in a while but we all know he has been itching to return to the ring for a match. This match will be exciting overall but without Roman I don’t think they will pull this off and I think an outside interference will cause for The Miz to take the win and continue to prove why he is relevant and a big time player on raw.
Overall I cannot wait to see what happens tomorrow night and I am excited for Angles return and Finn vs AJ, hopefully we get the Demon King even though he is not going against Sister Abigail (Bray in a dress). Thanks for reading and comment below your predictions for the TLC PPV.
