WWE TLC 2017 Predictions!

It’s that time again! I am writing up my predictions for WWE TLC 2017 and hope I can keep up my momentum in being fairly accurate. What I didn’t see coming was 3 superstars falling ill, and I hope they recover soon! I do have to say it was heartbreaking for all those Sheild fans stoked about the reunion.

So here goes:

Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox (Kickoff Match) – Alicia Fox makes a good point that she has been around for a long time, yet rarely gets a good shot. I think this will be a fun match to watch. I also think Alicia Fox has experience and is a huge cheater so there is a good chance she will win this match.

Drew Gulak to present a WWE Cruiserweight Championship Edition of his PowerPoint Presentation (WWE TLC Kickoff)  This sounds so… exciting?

WWE Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto vs. Enzo Amore – I think the WWE universe has turned on Enzo Amore 100%. You would have thought the end of his partnership with Big Cass would have left him the one people felt sorry for, but in light of all the media surrounding him acting like an ass in real life, really makes you wonder if his newest incarnation isn’t his most real. I think Kalisto is great, and a good fit for the cruiserweight champion. I think he will retain his title, but I also think there is a potential from interference from other competitors vying for a shot at the Championship.

Asuka vs. Emma – All I can say is poor Emma. Like a lamb to the slaughter, she has no idea what she “won” when she beat 4 other women to get the opportunity to be the first to wrestle Asuka in her main roster debut. Asuka is going to destroy like 80% of the WWE women’s division. Sorry, Emma, you ain’t got a chance.

Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann vs. Gentleman Jack Gallagher & The Brian Kendrick- This match is going to be awesome. I am so looking forward to this. I think Gallagher and Kendrick will take the win.

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James – I really hope Mickie James hands Alexa Bliss her ass. Honestly, her bratty girl wanna be Harley Quinn gimmick is played out, and not all that original. While Bliss is ok in the ring, she sucks at cutting promo’s and it’s almost as painful to listen to her speak as it was when WWECW hired Kelly Kelly. I hope Mickie James walks away with the title. She deserves it.

“The Demon” Finn Bálor vs. AJ Styles – Bray Wyatt getting sick was the best thing that happened to this PPV. This will easily be MOTN. They should just make it the main event at this point. I think the Demon may just run right over AJ Styles.

 Kurt Angle & Raw Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins vs. Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman & Kane
(5-on-3 Handicap Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match)
This looks practically unwatchable. NO on so many levels.
1. No one wants to see Kane in this match. Go run your political campaign.
2. Why the fuck would Kurt Angle risk himself wrestling again in any match, let alone this BS.
3. Why not Jason Jordan with Ambrose and Rollins vs The Miz and The Bar, with Strowman as guest referee?

So this match will probably just be hella crazy, hard to follow, and Strowman is gonna kill everyone. It doesn’t matter who wins. The audience members are the real losers here.

Overall I am really disappointed that there is only ONE TLC MATCH. I am also disappointed WWE turned the main event into some clusterfuck no one really cares about. I just hope no one gets hurt.You can watch live from home on the WWE Network, and remember betting is open until the bell of each match, you can check out the latest lines here!

How Did The Addition of Kurt Angle and AJ Styles Change WWE TLC Odds?

The following odds are sourced from 5Dimes, which offers betting to players worldwide. Click here to visit Five Dimes.

With illness striking the WWE roster leading to major changes in key matches for TLC on the WWE Network, sportsbooks have scrambled to get new odds out to reflect the shuffling. Kurt Angle replacing Roman Reigns in the 3 on 5 TLC match still has the 3 man team as the favorite, but less so than when Roman was in the match. Yesterday The Shield was favored at -530, but now the new team is only at -380. To put this in perspective, Asuka, who was favored at an impressive -1500 is now even more heavily favored at -2750.

Bray Wyatt has been replaced by AJ Styles against Finn Balor, and the change of opponent didn’t effect the odds very much. Before the change Finn was favored at -215 and this dropped marginally to -210. The only other shift worth noting is that the team of Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann are now favored in their match against Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick. This match was very close to begin with and now both are listed as underdogs, which is not uncommon when the sportsbooks can’t call it, so right now it’s a “pick em’”.
