WWE Rumor Roundup Dec 13, 2018: TLC Title Changes, WrestleMania Plans For Triple H, Riott Squad Love & More

Title Changes Set For TLC

TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs takes place this Sunday in San Jose with some big title changes awaiting the WWE Universe. According to recent betting odds, Dean Ambrose is to leave the SAP Center with the Intercontinental Championship to ensure that his current feud with Seth Rollins flows into WrestleMania season. On the other hand, Asuka is being favored (surprisingly) to emerge victorious over title-holder Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair to capture the SmackDown Women’s Championship.

Superstars Fall Ill Ahead Of TLC

Several top Superstars have fallen ill ahead of Sunday’s TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Finn Bálor missed this week’s Monday Night RAW because of his illness and hasn’t been cleared for physical contact yet. Alexa Bliss and Mandy Rose are also ill. Rose’s illness is also deemed be the reason behind her match against Naomi being called off on Tuesday night.

WrestleMania 35 Plan For Triple H

Triple H is currently rehabbing from his Crown Jewel injury but his rumored match against Batista at WrestleMania 35 is still penciled for April 7, 2019.  Joe Peisich revealed on Barnburner’s No Holds Barred podcast:

“I have talked to a couple sources of course, this could change, but penciled in everybody wants to know what’s going on with Triple H. Is Triple H going to face Batista. As everyone knows, he suffered a torn pec. Triple H is the Cerebral Assassin, but he’s also Superman. There is still penciled in Triple H vs Batista if Triple H can come back.”

Fans Love The Riott Squad

The WWE Universe may have finally started to love The Riott Squad. Recent merchandise sales account for the fact that fans are actually sold on the heel faction. However, it is yet to be determined how many pieces of the Squad’s merch WWE actually ordered for its shop.

TLC To Host More Than 12 Matches

TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs could have yet another match on the already stacked match card. Given the RAW Tag Team Championship and United States Championship aren’t yet booked for the event, WWE may eventually decide to book yet another title match for Sunday.

Dave Meltzer noted on the Wrestling Observer Radio:

“I don’t know why we need twelve [matches] and we still may have Nakamura and Rusev and Joe and Jeff Hardy to be added. I don’t know if they will be, but they’ve been pushed pretty hard. There is no spot for them. I mean there’s already too many matches.”
