2018 has been a rollercoaster year for the WWE and the company hopes to end the year on a high note. The last PPV of the year is TLC which means wrestlers will fight using Tables, Ladders and Chairs!

As of right now, the main card of TLC has 12 matches featuring WWE Superstars from Raw, Smackdown and 205 Live. It's a huge card with a lot of interesting implications. Let's see what we have in store shall we.

Fabulous Truth (R-Truth and Carmella) vs Mahalicia (Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox) - This is the finals of the Mixed Match Challenge tournament where the winners will be placed at number 30 in their respective Royal Rumble matches.

Since Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox are pretty much jobbers, I have a feeling Vince McMahon will make Fabulous Truth win because they are more popular right now with their dancing gimmick.

Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton - This is a Chairs match between two WWE Superstars that both debuted back in 2002.

It's always great to see veterans like these two fight as their matches have always been entertaining.

As for who will win this contest, I have a feeling Randy Orton needs the win more since he hasn't been doing much lately.

Buddy Murphy (c) vs Cedric Alexander - Cruiserweight Title: Buddy Murphy only won the title two months ago in his home country of Australia and has had a decent title reign.

It's way too early to strip him of the title so I'm giving the win to Buddy Murphy. This could be one of the best matches of the night!

Natalya vs Ruby Riott - This is a Tables match in a very personal rivalry.

Since Ruby Riott disrespected Nattie's late father, the best thing to do in this feud is to let Natalya get the victory to honor her dad's legacy.

The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus) (c) vs The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and/or Xavier Woods) vs The Usos (Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso) - Tag Team titles: To be honest with you, all team members in this match have been champion multiple times so it doesn't matter who really wins or loses.

It's too bad Sanity are treated like jobbers since they would have benefited with a title win. Anyway, I feel The Bar is going to retain since the other two teams have had the gold recently.

Elias vs Bobby Lashley - This is a random Ladder match where the two wrestlers have to climb up to use a guitar as a weapon.

Since Elias plays a guitar, I have a feeling he's going to get the victory here over Bobby Lashley.

Finn Bálor vs Drew McIntyre - This is a straight up Raw match that has no meaning behind it whatsoever.

Since WWE is high on Drew McIntyre lately, I feel he's going to get the decisive win at the end using this cool looking 'Claymore Kick' finishing move.

Braun Strowman vs Baron Corbin - I'm not really sure if this match is taking place because Braun Strowman recently had surgery done.

If it still takes place, Baron Corbin is losing this TLC match. The ratings have been low with him in charge so Strowman is winning to allow Kurt Angle to come back as the General Manager of Raw.

Daniel Bryan (c) vs AJ Styles: WWE Title - There's no point allowing AJ Styles to win because he has already been champion for over a year.

The New Daniel Bryan is going to win possibly by cheating again. The New Daniel Bryan has been entertaining since it has been a long time since fans have seen him as a heel.

Ronda Rousey (c) vs Nia Jax: Raw Women's Title - Ronda Rousey is winning this match cleanly.

I don't think WWE wants Ronda Rousey to lose the title just prior to the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania coming up soon.

That said, I feel Nia Jax will be a sore loser and will hurt Ronda after the match is finished.

Seth Rollins (c) vs Dean Ambrose: Intercontinental Title - This would be my semi main event because these guys have the history and storyline to make a great match.

With Seth Rollins possibly moving on to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35, I have a feeling Dean Ambrose is winning and will have the Intercontinental Title for a long period in 2019.

Becky Lynch (c) vs Charlotte Flair vs Asuka: Smackdown Women's Title - This triple threat TLC match would be my pick for the main event.

Becky Lynch is the hottest wrestler in WWE right now and this is the biggest match on the card in my opinion.

As for who will win this match, I'm going to give the victory to Charlotte Flair.

Becky Lynch is likely going to move on and face Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35 next year. As for Asuka, sadly I don't think Vince McMahon is too high on her at the moment for a title reign.
