Ladder stipulation added to Elias vs. Lashley at WWE TLC


WWE has added a stipulation to one of the matches for Sunday's TLC pay-per-view.

During tonight's Raw, it was announced that Elias vs. Bobby Lashley at TLC will now be a ladder match. There will be a guitar suspended above the ring and the first person to reach it will be able to use it as a weapon during the match.

As part of the storyline where Baron Corbin has made Heath Slater a referee, Lio Rush defeated Elias on Raw tonight. Slater let Lashley interfere, and Lashley smashed a guitar across Elias' back before Rush got the win. Elias had hit Rush with a guitar last week.

TLC is taking place at the SAP Center in San Jose, California on Sunday. Here's the updated card:

  • WWE Champion Daniel Bryan defending against AJ Styles
  • Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins defending against Dean Ambrose
  • If Braun Strowman is able to wrestle at the PPV: Strowman vs. Baron Corbin in a tables, ladders, and chairs match (Strowman will challenge for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble if he defeats Corbin. If Corbin wins, he'll become the permanent general manager of Raw. Corbin will lose all of his GM power if Strowman wins)
  • Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey defending against Nia Jax
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch defending against Charlotte Flair and Asuka in a triple threat tables, ladders, and chairs match
