With only two episodes of SmackDown Live, including tonight, remaining until the TLC pay-per-view (PPV) on Dec. 4, 2016, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, WWE went all out booking the card.
In addition to the previous announcement that Alexa Bliss would get her rematch against Becky Lynch for the women’s championship, Dolph Ziggler will get his latest crack at The Miz and his Intercontinental title. This after he showed up with a surprise superkick following Miz’s successful defense of said title against Kalisto (with some help from Baron Corbin).
Speaking of Corbin, General Manager Daniel Bryan announced on Talking Smack that the Lone Wolf will take on Kalisto in a Chairs Match at the PPV in just under two week’s time.
Elsewhere, Nikki Bella broke the news to Carmella — who she believes is the one who attacked her and kept her from wrestling at Survivor Series — that they will have a No Disqualification match.
Here’s the updated TLC match card:
- AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose (TLC match for WWE championship)
- Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss (SmackDown women’s championship)
- The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler (Ladder match for Intercontinental championship)
- Nikki Bella vs. Carmella (No DQ match)
- Baron Corbin vs Kalisto (Chairs Match)
