Reported first as a distraction maneuver and then as a way to cover up an alleged injury, this week it was confirmed that That suspension of Braun Strowman last week will leave him out of TLC 2020, where in principle he was going to be Drew McIntyre’s challenger for the WWE Championship.
Thus, in return, AJ Styles replaces Strowman in said gap, after his victory over Riddle and Keith Lee this Monday, confirming the first clash of the imminent new McMahonlandia PPV.

But as Fightful reports, Strowman’s discharge would have had other consequences. Sean Ross Sapp notes that “Virtually all the most important fighters in the cast of Raw” have seen their creative direction modified on the way to TLC.
Ergo, we corroborate that Monday’s Triple Threat was a last minute patch caused by Strowman’s injury, and was never the original plan for the event on December 20.
People say that Raw is being a creative nonsense behind the scenes even bigger than usual, when the final script for the last episode was not completed until 25 minutes before the show began airing on the USA Network.
And beyond the McIntyre vs. Strowman, we don’t know what other fights originally planned for TLC may have been altered.
The development of the stories thus far suggests a Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler Women’s Couples Championship defense against Asuka and Lana, a Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt, or a Sasha Banks vs. Carmella for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. We will continue to inform SUPERLUCHAS of any news in this regard.
