The next PPV on the WWE menu is none other than WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders, & Chairs 2017. Going with the pattern of No Mercy and Hell in a Cell, they appear to be trading PPVs. In other words, it was a SmackDown show last year and this time it’s Raw.
Now, usually TLC is all about doing a specific set of gimmick matches. TLC, table match, ladder match, chairs match, and maybe stairs match. They seem to be foregoing that this year as the only gimmick match announced is a TLC match. No gimmicks for the rest.
As of October 20, the shit has hit the fan. Due to some meningitis spreading around, both Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt are off the show. This makes things inexplicable, but also very interesting.
