WWE ‘TLC’ Pay-per-view Preview, Part Two

Now as we take a look at the top three matches of the WWE 'TLC' pay-per-view card, the most anticipated match for the WWE Universe is the title unification contest. Since WWE added a fatale four way match for the tag-team titles we give your our thoughts on it here. In case you missed our thoughts on the under card matches you can read part one here.

Main Event:

Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match (Title Unification/Champion of Champions)

World Heavyweight Champion John Cena versus WWE Champion Randy Orton

Sean Hood:

I have absolutely no idea how this one ends. One thing I can guarantee though is that at least some people won't be happy with whatever the outcome is. There honestly so many variables and rumors of supposed screw job endings that I am just going to go with what I personally would like. John Cena has really been doing his damnedest to try and make this very rushed unification match seem important. His promos have been effective and focused on how big of a match this is. Randy hadn't been bad but Cena is absolutely shouldering most of the workload as far as hype. I would like to see Cena win the unified championship setting up, hopefully, for an epic 'WrestleMania' showdown with Daniel Bryan. That probably won't be the result of course but a guy can dream. John Cena wins and becomes the Unified World Heavyweight Champion, WWE champion of champions, or whatever it is going to be called.

Peter Schifani:

As the embedded video show the Championship Ascension ceremony to end Monday Night Raw was pure chaos. Seeing John Cena side-by-side with The Authority does make fans believe a possible heel turn could be in the works, but there's really no chance of that. Expect Cena to emerge with both titles and move on to the 'Royal Rumble' to possibly hold up his statement of giving Daniel Bryan a clean re-match (from "SummerSlam') for the unified championship.

Three-on-One Handicap Match:

CM Punk vs US Champion Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns (The Shield)

Sean Hood:

This could be a great match. I'm not usually into handicap matches but with all of the parts in this one it should be very well done. We've seen the tension mounting between Ambrose and Reigns of The Shield and that is where I expect Punk to take advantage and win this match.

Peter Schifani:

Considering Punk is nursing injuries it wouldn't be surprising to see The Shield come out victorious here, but it would then lead to Punk getting assistance from say the Rhodes Dynasty, post-match, to help fend off further injury.

Three-on-One Handicap Match:

Daniel Bryan vs Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan (The Wyatt Family)

Sean Hood:

I'm more torn on the outcome of this one. There's no clear direction for them to take but I'm just not sure this feud is over after tonight. Bryan will probably get on a roll with one of his patented hot streaks and he may be very close to winning at a few points but somehow I just see him being caught by Bray with the "Sister Abigail." The Wyatts defeat Daniel Bryan.

Peter Schifani:

So the question for this match is "will Bryan accept Bray's offer and join the Wyatt Family?" It seems highly unlikely that such would happen but the post match prophesizing by Bray Wyatt has been interesting to watch. Somehow Bryan gets the win, but the Wyatts may walk away with Bryan in tow once again.

Fatale Four Way WWE Tag-Team Championship: Cody Rhodes and Goldust (Rhodes Dynasty) (C) versus Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro (The Real Americans) versus Rey Mysterio and Big Show versus Curtis Axel and Ryback

Sean Hood:

Goldust and Cody have been a great tag team and damn fine champions ever since joining forces. It would be disappointing to see them lose the titles in a match like this. I think the titles will stay safely around The Rhodes brothers' waists and this match will be used to elevate the contenders in the eyes of the fans.

Peter Schifani:

This could turn out to be an all out brawl at some point. Even though its not a two-on-two traditional tag match this could be the time for The Real Americans to finally break through and capture the tag-team gold. New champions crowned one way or another.

Well there you are now we have covered all the matches for the final WWE pay-per-view of 2013 'TLC.' Hopefully there will be a clean and controversy free ending to the main event so that one true champion can reign supreme in WWE in 2014 and beyond.
