The main card of WWE’s PPV TLC kicked off with a championship TLC match between Drew McIntyre and AJ Styles. However, along the way, Money in the Bank contract holder The Miz got thrown into the mix, and it didn’t go too well for him. Check out results for the 2020 PPV below as they happen.
The Thunderdome has moved to a new location, and TLC will take place at Tropicana Field in Tampa, Florida. That’s right. It’s a WWE PPV in the middle of a baseball stadium. However, since you can’t attend the show in person, you’ll have to watch it the old fashion way–through the WWE Network.
How to watch:
If you’re looking to watch WWE’s TLC PPV, you’re going to have to sign up for the WWE Network, which costs $10 a month. The streaming service no longer offers one month for free, but it is well worth the price of admission, as there is plenty of other content to keep you entertained, like old episodes of Raw, Smackdown, WCW Nitro, PPVs, and original content. There is also a free tier, which you can use to watch the Kickoff Show of the PPV, but not the main card.
Below, you’ll find the up-to-date match card for the event. Obviously, the card is subject to change–like how Lana was removed pretty late from the Women’s Tag Team Championship match, and her replacement still hasn’t been named. There are seven cards booked, and you’ll want to keep your eye on the Firefly Inferno Match as WWE has been doing a great job this year with cinematic battles.
- Drew McIntyre (c) vs. AJ Styles – TLC match for the WWE Championship
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Kevin Owens – TLC match for the Universal Championship
- “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton – Firefly Inferno Match
- Sasha Banks (c) vs. Carmella – Smackdown Women’s Championship
- Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler (c) vs. Asuka & ??? – Women’s Tag Team Championship
- The New Day (c) vs. The Hurt Business – Raw Tag Team Championship
- Big E, Daniel Bryan, Otis, & Chad Gable vs. Sami Zayn, King Corbin, Cesaro, & Shinsuke Nakamura [KICKOFF SHOW]
As the night moves forward, you’ll find the updated results from every match, along with important notes in case you aren’t watching. While you wait, why not listen to the latest episode of Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot’s wrestling podcast where Mat Elfring and Chris E. Hayner talk about that time Luke Gallows pretended to be Kane?
Kickoff show notes will pop up if there are any changes to the match card. The one Kickoff Show match will happen at the latter part of the one-hour-long pre-show.
Big E, Daniel Bryan, Otis, & Chad Gable vs. Sami Zayn, King Corbin, Cesaro, & Shinsuke Nakamura
This is quite the hodge-podge of wrestlers who don’t have a spot on the main card, most of which are fantastic and really deserve a bigger spotlight. Of course, like any tag team match with more than four participants, it broke down into chaos, giving wrestlers a few moments to shine. But in the end, it was E vs. Zayn, with E getting the win. The moment was short, but it makes you want to see these two have a one-on-one battle–which we’ll probably get at Royal Rumble.
Big E pins Sami Zayn.
Drew McIntyre (c) vs. AJ Styles – TLC match for the WWE Championship
As always, Styles came to the ring with his tall friend Omos, so we’ll see how this plays out. At one point, Omos tossed Styles a ladder, which didn’t really help because McIntyre ended up tossing Styles out of the ring, through a table.
Then, the Miz ran to the ring and cashed in his MITB contract. However, this is when Omos got into action. He picked up Miz and threw him through a table. Omos then chased John Morrison out of the ring. There was some great back-and-forth between Styles/Miz/ McIntyre going for the belt. This is where the battle got exciting. But in the end, McIntyre was the last man standing and got his title back.
Sasha Banks (c) vs. Carmella – Smackdown Women’s Championship
This ended up being pretty fun, coming off the highly-anticipated TLC match prior to it. For those wondering, no, Banks did not give Carmella a tornado DDT–a move her character gave to Boba Fett in the season finale of The Mandalorian. Anyway, solid ringwork throughout, and good storytelling throughout the match.
Banks wins by submission.
The New Day (c) vs. The Hurt Business – Raw Tag Team Championship
Veterans vs. rookies… stay with me. Yes, Shelton Benjamin has been around a lot longer than the others, but Hurt Business is still relatively new as a tag team. It was a passing of the torch battle that elevates The Hurt Business, as every member of the group has a championship right now. The two teams put on a really fun match that was nonstop action. It stinks to see New Day lose the titles, but The Hurt Business earned it.
Alexander pins Kingston.
Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler (c) vs. Asuka & ??? – Women’s Tag Team Championship
Asuka’s tag team partner still hasn’t been named.
Match in progress.
