• Braun Strowman’s Replacement & New Plans For TLC 2018 Main Event Revealed

As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, Baron Corbin noted that his match with Braun Strowman at TLC 2018 is still on and he plans to win it via forfeit as Strowman won’t be able to make to the PPV as he underwent an elbow surgery.

However, that match won’t take place at all.

According to the Dirty Sheets, Strowman is out of the TLC 2018 PPV and the TLC 2018 main event will now be a 6 man tag team TLC match with Corbin’s spot as the General Manager of RAW on the line.

WWE originally planned to have WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle replace Strowman in this match and have Angle vs. Corbin in a TLC match, but WWE officials felt that match won’t deliver.

This led to WWE officials planning to do a 6 man tag team TLC match between the teams of Kurt Angle/Elias/Finn Balor and Baron Corbin/Drew McIntyre/Bobby Lashley.

This is the reason why the trio led by Corbin destroyed Elias & Balor on this week’s RAW.

However, there could be a slight change of plan in the above stated match as well.

Former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt, who made his return at Starrcade 2018 live event, was backstage on this week’s RAW and there have been talks of adding him to the match instead of Angle.

So it looks like the TLC 2018 PPV main event will be a 6 man tag team TLC match with Corbin’s job as the General Manager of RAW on the line.

We’ll keep you updated regarding Angle & Wyatt’s TLC 2018 status.
