After a garbage year, WWE is treating us with a promising main event: On Sunday, Drew McIntyre defends his WWE Championship against AJ Styles at the TLC pay-per-view event. It looks to be spectacular, as not only are both guys great performers, they’ll compete in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match.
It’s one of two world championship TLC matches, as Roman Reigns will also defend his Universal Championship against Kevin Owens.
Rounding out the headlining matches is Randy Orton’s Firefly Inferno bout against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. Fiend matches tend to be weak, and these two had a notoriously poor WrestleMania match a few years ago (brought down by wacky Bray Wyatt theatrics. So… it’ll be interesting, at the very least.
TLC will emanate from WWE’s ThunderDome which, after a four month residence in Orlando’s Amway Center, is now held in Florida’s Tropicana Field stadium. The main card starts both days at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. If you’re a paid WWE Network subscriber — at $9.99 a month — you can watch TLC live for no extra cost. Otherwise, you’ll need to contact your local cable provider.
Viewers in the UK will have to stay up late to watch Hell in a Cell; the show starts 11 p.m. Sunday UK time. Hell in a Cell starts for Australians at 11 a.m. AEDT on Monday.
