The following week, Owens challenged Reigns to a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match for the Universal Championship at TLC, which Reigns accepted. On 11 December SmackDown episode, Roman and Jey brutalized Owens with steel chairs.

However, she lost the title match against Asuka the following week. Later, Lana won a fatal four-way match to win a spot on the women’s team for Team Raw at Survivor Series, where she emerged as the sole survivor after being ordered to not take part in the match by her teammates.

The following night on Raw, Lana was granted another Raw Women’s Championship match against Asuka, but the match ended in a no-contest after Jax and Baszler interfered.

Drew McIntyre(c) vs AJ Styles – Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match For WWE Championship

Preview – Last couple of months has been quite eventful for Drew McIntyre. First, he lost the WWE title to Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell, only to win it back just three weeks later. His rivalry with Roman Reigns ended in a loss at Survivor Series. That makes it two losses in a row as a WWE Champion on consecutive PPVs.

On the other hand, AJ Styles has not been pinned since returning to RAW at WWE Draft 2020. His angle with the new bodyguard is yet to unfold properly but his credibility has certainly increased since coming back to RAW. The cocky heel character along with the brutal beating that he gave to Sheamus and McIntyre in recent weeks has certainly helped his case. But will this result in another WWE Title run?

Prediction – Drew McIntyre to retain the title.

Roman Reigns(c) vs Kevin Owens – Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match For WWE Universal Championship Match

Preview – Roman’s obsession for being the Tribal Cheif and earn respect from fear has led to Jey Uso venting his frustration on Kevin Owens. Owens, on his part, saw through the situation and called out Roman himself rather than continue to fiddle with Jey. This has resulted in Roman showing the colder side of his character

Prediction – It’s hard to see the Universal title changing hands anytime before WrestleMania. Roman Reigns to win.

Sasha Bank(c) vs Carmella – WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship Match

Preview – Sasha Banks is coming out hot after beating Bayley at Hell in a Cell 2020 and then WWE RAW Women’s Champion Asuka at Survivor Series 2020. Two of the top women in WWE. Who is next for her? It’s the new version of Carmella- heel, blonde, and more menacing that we had seen in the past. But will it be enough to dethrone Sasha, who is probably the hottest women’s champion in the business right now.

Prediction – Sasha Banks to remain the top woman of the blue brand beyond TLC 2020.

Randy Orton vs The Fiend – Firefly Inferno Match

Preview – WWE wanted Orton to add to his 13 World titles and they went on to crown him the champion at Hell in a Cell. Though, whatever they had in mind after that, failed to get through. This resulted in a short 3 weeks title reign and the Fiend getting into a rivalry with him, which gave both men something to do before they could move on to something bigger for WrestleMania season.

Prediction – The Fiend to get revenge on Orton for the loss at WrestleMania 33.

The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) (c) vs The Hurt Business (Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin) – WWE RAW Tag Team Championship Match

Prediction – Hurt Business to add the tag team titles to their collection.
