The following matches are advertised for the WWE TLC pay-per-view, which takes place on December 16 in Brooklyn, N.Y. at the Barclays Center.

-Ryback, Kane, and Daniel Bryan vs. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns in a TLC match.

-Big Show vs. Sheamus in a chairs match for the World Hvt. Championship.

-John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler in a ladder match for the World Hvt. Championship Money in the Bank contract.

-Kofi Kingston vs. Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Title.

-Antonio Cesaro vs. R-Truth for the U.S. Title.

Powell's POV: I consider it good news that WWE is specifically advertising that the MITB contract is for a shot at the World Hvt. Championship. That suggests they won't conveniently forget that it's not a WWE Championship title shot, as many have speculated they would. Meanwhile, there's no word yet as to what WWE will position as the main event of the show. The Shield's first in-ring appearance could be a draw, but it's possible they will go with the World Hvt. Championship match instead.
