WWE TLC Pay Per View
One Step Down…On Paper

TLC tonight could end up being very newsworthy or not at all. It's often times like these that Vince decides he wants to do something unexpected.

Punk isn't losing. Dolph could always drop to Ryder, but that's not really unexpected. If something "big" was going to happen tonight, I think it will involve Mark Henry's World Heavyweight Championship. Big Show could win it and that be the end of the story or there's always the idea of Daniel Bryan cashing in.

Someone tweeted me yesterday about Kane possibly attacking Big Show after he wins the title from Henry and after the attack, Bryan cash in MITB. Interesting scenario and I guess you never know, but for Daniel Bryan's sake, I hope that doesn't happen.

If DB walks out of TLC tonight with the WHC, he never makes it to WrestleMania 28 as Champion. He probably doesn't even make it to 'Mania as a challenger for the title. Daniel Bryan cashing in and winning tonight would mean Vince doesn't have faith in him long-term. He probably ends up losing it to someone else at Rumble or Elimination Chamber.

I listed my TLC predictions in my "Cashbox" feature this week. In it, the two major titles didn't change hands, but I did have Dolph dropping his U.S. Championship to Ryder. Be sure you check out my review of tonight's even this Monday, right here on
