WWE TLC 2016: John Cena’s Return And 5 Potential Swerves
November 28, 2016 - WWE
WWE TLC will underline AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz as a headlining matches for SmackDown’s last pay-per-view of 2016.
It has been a good year for a blue code so far, with a uncover widely deliberate to be higher to Raw since a code separate behind in a summer. Whereas Raw continues to see a consistent drop in ratings for a third hour and even brought in Goldberg to pill that, SmackDown has relied heavily on a core organisation of full-time superstars to lift a code and a uncover has, for a many part, been illusory as a result.
But WWE could be creation some thespian changes to SmackDown at WWE TLC.
With a recent drop in WWE Network subscriptions and WrestleMania deteriorate on a horizon, design TLC to be a uncover that sets a tinge for 2017 and gets a round rolling on a new-look SmackDown as we start a highway to The Royal Rumble. That means we can skeleton on observant some bend balls thrown a approach during TLC in sequence to supplement some amour to a blue code and amp adult a fad for a new year.
So, let’s inspect 5 intensity swerves that could occur during WWE TLC this Sunday.
Cesaro Or Sami Zayn Debuts For The Blue Brand
Cesaro’s real life enterprise to be on SmackDown has been worked into a storyline, with a blue brand’s GM Daniel Bryan suggesting that he’d like to have Cesaro on his show:

On a WWE Network’s Special “State of a WWE Universe” address, Bryan also suggested that both Cesaro and Sami Zayn wish to make a pierce to SmackDown, that is expected a worked fire of sorts with Cesaro and Zayn legitimately preferring to be on SmackDown rather than Raw. You could positively see since they’d feel that approach as arguably a dual many dissipated and underutilized superstars on Monday nights.
While there’s positively no pledge that possibly Cesaro or Zayn will finish adult on SmackDown, a consistent mentions of their unhappiness on Raw seems to safeguard that during slightest one will switch shows, and it would be an epic snake if one of them showed adult during WWE TLC, maybe as a new pretension challenger to either The Miz or AJ Styles.
Alexa Bliss Wins SmackDown’s Women’s Championship
Becky Lynch is clearly a best altogether performer in SmackDown’s women’s division, though Alexa Bliss has fast grown into a division’s tip heel.
Is Bliss prepared to reason a championship? Maybe not utterly yet, though as a good mic workman and a constantly improving in-ring talent, WWE could simply lift a trigger on her initial pretension run during WWE TLC. The logic is simple, too: It creates for a improved story when a babyface challenger chases a heel champion.
Although Lynch deserved to be SmackDown’s inaugural champion, there’s unequivocally not most of a story for her to tell when she’s holding a title. It’s all about a chase, one that would be good if Bliss was holding a belt and Lynch was a one posterior it.
With a usually other heel options on SmackDown being Carmella (who really isn’t ready) and Natalya (who is holding a backseat), a ideal unfolding here is for Bliss to win a pretension and continue her argument with Lynch until during slightest The Royal Rumble. But if that does indeed happen, it would be a shocker since a accord seems to be that Lynch will reason a pretension until a some-more important challenger stairs up.
