WWE TLC is set with a dozen matches this Sunday, but there are still Superstars who aren’t on the card. It seems WWE is booking an A-Level event on a B-Level show which could be a Hail Mary attempt on WWE’s part to gain more interest as they prepare for Royal Rumble and beyond.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that as loaded as the WWE TLC pay-per-view is, there is always the possibility that WWE will book even more matches for the already loaded card.
“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.”
Depending on how short the previously booked matches turn out to be, WWE could always slide in more matches. The big question is why would they need to?
It’s possible that the Joe vs Hardy and Nakamura vs Rusev stories could be held off for a blow-off at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. However, it’s also hard to imagine WWE would wait six more weeks to take care of those angles. It might be possible they’re holding them back for highlighted matches on television to help draw in ratings in between the two pay-per-views.
WWE has the option of adding even more matches to WWE TLC. The event is in San Jose, California so fans there might not have an issue staying later. It still might be a good idea for WWE to find a stopping point eventually or people could be talking about how WrestleMania 35 was great but it didn’t seem as loaded as WWE TLC which isn’t something WWE wants at all.
