Two matches have been officially announced for the upcoming WWE TLC pay-per-view. WWE confirmed that Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will defend the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles against Lana and RAW Women’s Champion Asuka.
This will be the only match of the night for Asuka as she is not defending her singles title at TLC. The title shot was granted after Lana and Asuka won non-title matches on November 23 and November 30.
We noted earlier that Orton will visit Wyatt and Alexa Bliss at the Firefly Fun House during Monday’s RAW, and in that announcement from WWE it was mentioned that the two Superstars were looking ahead to a match at TLC. WWE has since confirmed the match, adding that the mind games between Wyatt and Orton will culminate at the pay-per-view.
The 2020 WWE TLC pay-per-view will take place on December 20 from The ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
WWE TLC HISTORY
The WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs event was established in 2009, replacing Armageddon in the December slot of WWE’s pay-per-view calendar. The concept of the show is based on the primary matches of the card each containing a stipulation using tables, ladders, and/or chairs as legal weapons. The event’s concept was voted by fans via WWE’s official website and was chosen over an event with street fight main events and an event featuring a single-elimination tournament.
Championship bouts are scheduled on every card, with the lower-tier titles featured on the undercard and the top-tier featured on the main card.
The 2014 event was also referred to as Tables, Ladders, Chairs… and Stairs, because the first ever Steel Stairs Match, between Erick Rowan and Big Show, was contested at the event.
With the WWE brand extension reinstated in 2016, the pay-per-view in 2016 was a SmackDown branded event. In the 2017 edition of the event, it was moved from its usual December slot to an October slot together with making the event as a Raw branded event, allowing TLC to occur before the annual Survivor Series event that is held in November. In 2018, it was announced that TLC would be a dual-branded event, and was moved back to the December slot due to the cancellation of Clash of Champions that year.
