On Sunday night, the 2014 WWE TLC pay-per-view arrives live on TV and online thanks to cable providers and WWE Network! TLC is the popular “Tables, Ladders & Chairs” themed pay-per-view, but this time around they’ve added “Stairs” to the title, with a Stairs match among those on the card. The main event is likely to feature John Cena vs. Seth Rollins in a tables match, with a special stipulation that if Cena loses, he also loses his #1 contender status for the WWE World Heavyweight title! Let’s take a look at all the details for the WWE TLC 2014 live online and televised matches, as well as the latest odds to win!
At the TLC event, matches feature exactly what you think, tables, ladders, chairs, and now stairs! The rules are different based on the match. For example, John Cena or Seth Rollins must be the first to smash their opponent through a table to win. If Rollins does that to Cena, Cena is no longer the #1 contender for Brock Lesnar’s championship. Big Show takes on Erick Rowan in a stairs match, meaning they’ll be using the ringside steel steps against one another legally. Ryback and Kane will also battle it out, in a chairs match, where they can bash each other with the metal chairs as weapons.
Four of the championships are up for grabs at TLC 2014. They’ll include Nikki Bella defending the Divas title against AJ Lee in a single fall match. Dolph Ziggler challenges Luke Harper for the Intercontinental Title in a Ladder match. The tag titles will be on the line in a regular single fall match with The Miz and Damien Mizdown defending against The Usos. Also, Jack Swagger challenges Rusev for the United States title.
As of right now, odds have been released for the event. Among the heavy favorites are Ryback, John Cena and the team of The Miz and Damien Mizdow. Here’s a look at the latest odds for each of the matches available:
