I know that I have left this very late but here are my quick predictions for tonight’s WWE Pay-Per-View: Tables Ladders Chairs and Stairs. (Surely there was no need to change the name)
I will start with the three matches that I think are the most important taking place tonight:
John Cena Vs Seth Rollins (Tables Match)
Due to the continued absence of WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar, this match will no doubt be the main event of the night. The stipulation is that if Cena loses the match he will also lose his spot as the number one contender for Lesnar’s title. This match is really the outcome of Rollins costing Cena the title back in the summer and then of Team Cena defeating Team Authority at Survivor Series. I think this one will go to Rollins in all honesty. WWE have allowed Cena’s booking to be less superman-like in recent months (FINALLY!!) and Rollins is one of their brightest young talents. Since it is a tables match, it also means that Cena doesn’t actually have to be pinned to lose either, which makes it even more wiser to allow the heel to win. If Randy Orton is a no-show again, I have a sneaky feeling that Lesnar may appear after the bell and lay both men out with an F-5… as he announces his return to TV programming.
Winner – Seth Rollins
Bray Wyatt Vs Dean Ambrose (TLC Match)
This is the match I am looking forward to seeing the most tonight….. And it is no coincidence that my most anticipated match features Ambrose yet again. For me he has been the stand-out superstar of the year and was definitely more worthy of picking up that award at the Slammys last week than Roman Reigns was. He brings excited to the show as you never quite know what is going to happen next. This is quite the opposite to his rival tonight (Wyatt), who has become quite stale and boring. He comes out and rambles on about the same old rubbish AND for too long every week. The creative team have let his character become predictable and unwanted. Ambrose has been carrying this feud, although seeing a more violent Wyatt has been an improvement. I expect this match to be full of hard-knocks and high-flying action…Well, from Ambrose at least. Ambrose hasn’t has a great record on PPV this year so I think that he will pick up the win and in-turn end this feud.
Winner – Dean Ambrose
Luke Harper Vs Dolph Ziggler (Ladder Match for IC Title)
This match also has the potential to steal the show. Ziggler has been one of the stars of 2014 and it has been great to see WWE give him a chance to shine at the top once again. Harper is also one of the best ‘big men’ in the business and has great chemistry with his challenger. He has received poor booking since becoming the champion though and in all honesty has lost of to Erick Rowan in popularity. Given the agility of both men, and the fact that a ladder is involved, you can all expect their to be a few ‘OMG Moments.’ Ziggler doesn’t mind taking a beating in order to please to crowd…. I predict that he will take a huge powerbomb from the top of the ladder at some point. This match is tough to call but Ziggler deserves to finish the year on a high so I am going to go for him tonight.
Winner – Dolph Ziggler
