With just a couple of shows heading into the WWE TLC pay-per-view, there was talk about Daniel Bryan facing Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Championship on the show.
However, Ringside News reports that the plan is for Big E to challenge Zayn for the IC title at the pay-per-view. Unless plans change between now and Friday, fans can look for that match to be set up this week on SmackDown.
Bryan not wrestling Zayn on the show makes sense because it leaves the door for the Bryan-Jey Uso rematch. Bryan hinted at wanting the rematch on an episode of Talking Smack.
After TLC, WWE has much bigger plans for Bryan at the Royal Rumble. Click here for the spoiler news on the Rumble plans for Bryan.
It looks like most of the TLC card will be known by the end of this week since they have already announced 5 matches for the show. What is left to announce is some of the stipulations for most of the card. As of now, WWE has announced stipulations for the top two matches.
Here is the updated card:
WWE Championship – Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match
