WWE next Pay Per View TLC on 16 December 2018 at SAP Center, San Jose, California, United States. WWE officially announced at Smackdown live that Daniel Bryan will defend his WWE Championship against Styles at TLC in San Jose, California on December 16.
At Smackdown live show WWE Champion Daniel Bryan went to the ring to explain the reason for his attack on AJ Styles when he snatched the title from the blue brand program. Following Bryan’s intervention, the company proceeded to confirm the rematch against The Phenomenal for the WWE Championship at the TLC event.
Bryan blamed the fans for moving on. He said the “Yes” chants grew quieter every week and he stopped fighting but his dreams took over when he low blew Styles and won the title. His dreams told him he didn’t need to defeat Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series to win, he won by allowing Lesnar to beat the weakness out of him.
