• WWE Saving 2 TLC PPV Matches For Royal Rumble 2020

According to the Wrestling Observer, the following two originally planned matches for TLC 2019 are being saved for Royal Rumble 2020 PPV by the WWE officials:

– Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Braun Strowman for the Intercontinental Championship

– Bayley (c) vs. Lacey Evans for the SmackDown Women’s Championship

Nakamura vs. Strowman couldn’t take place at TLC 2019 because Strowman is dealing with back issues, so he’s taking some time off to heal.

Regarding Bayley vs. Lacey, WWE officials thought it would be too early to book this match coming out of Survivor Series, so they changed their mind.
