The latest on this weekend's TLC PPV is that by the end of the night, WWE could have as many as three new title holders.
At the time of typing this, WWE TLC is just three days away and despite being a secondary PPV, the card is pretty stacked. There are currently 12 matches in total scheduled to take place, six of which will have gold on the line. It is also anyone's guess which match will be the show's main event with a number of viable candidates.
The other big question is of the six championships on the line, which ones will have new owners by the time TLC has been and gone? Whoever holds the gold beyond Sunday is highly likely to be involved in a title angle at next month's Royal Rumble, and perhaps even heading into WrestleMania 35.
That's a big burden to carry, so WWE will be very selective in who it wants as its champions heading into 2019. In fact, according to Cageside Seats and Wrestle Talk, we could see as many as three title changes at TLC. The latter is reporting the most likely champions to lose their titles this weekend are The Bar, Seth Rollins, and surprisingly, Becky Lynch.
The Usos are currently the betting favorites to become SmackDown Tag Team Champions at TLC. It is also heavily rumored that Rollins will be involved in a Universal Title angle sometime soon, so it makes sense that he would drop the Intercontinental Title to Dean Ambrose at this juncture. It's the Lynch rumor that fans aren't going to like if it happens, though. What fans of The Man need to remember is if Lynch isn't champion next month, it frees her up to win the second ever women's Royal Rumble match.
While most assumed Asuka had been added to the match so that she could take the fall, it now appears her reason for being there might be so she can finally become champion. Plus, it's a TLC match and the title will be suspended above the ring, so no one needs to take the fall. It also means Lynch can lose without being pinned or submitted. Again, these are all just rumors as of right now, and even if they are true, Vince McMahon may very well change his mind and rebook the whole show as he often loves to do.
