Eight-man tag team match set for WWE TLC pre-show


Eight-man tag team action is set for tonight's TLC pre-show.

WWE has announced that Big E, Daniel Bryan, Chad Gable & Otis vs. Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura will be the pre-show match for tonight's TLC pay-per-view. The one-hour pre-show begins at 6 p.m. Eastern time and will air on the WWE Network and WWE's social platforms.

Big E and Bryan have both lost to Zayn by countout in non-title matches on SmackDown in recent weeks. On this past Friday's SmackDown, there was a segment where Big E got back at Zayn by ruining his "first annual Sami Awards."

After Gable & Otis lost to Cesaro & Nakamura the previous week, Otis defeated Nakamura in a singles match on this past Friday's SmackDown.

Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler returned to WWE television earlier this month as Corbin's Knights of The Lone Wolf.

There are now seven matches in total announced for tonight's TLC event. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • Universal Champion Roman Reigns defends his title against Kevin Owens in a tables, ladders, and chairs match
  • WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defends his title against AJ Styles in a tables, ladders, and chairs match
  • Randy Orton vs. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Inferno match
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks defends her title against Carmella
  • Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax defend their titles against Asuka and a partner of her choosing
  • Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) defend their titles against The Hurt Business (Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander)
  • Big E, Daniel Bryan, Chad Gable & Otis vs. Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura (pre-show)
