For over a year now, CM Punk has displayed over and over again that he is the best in the world but in the last few months, it has come with major controversy. First it was interference by a rogue referee, who low blowed Ryback which allowed a fast count pin by CM Punk.
Then 3 men came out of the crowd and attacked Ryback which allowed CM Punk to pin John Cena. Now, due to an injury and knee surgery, the WWE Champion will not defend his title tonight.
The original main event for tonight was going to be CM Punk defending against Ryback in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match. This was changed due to the surgery on CM Punk's knee to now a 6 man tag team TLC match with Team Hell No (Kane and Daniel Bryan) and Ryback vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns).
The largest athlete in the world, The Big Show looks to keep his Heavyweight title reign alive against Sheamus in a chairs match. Big Show has poked the Irish Man a little too far to the extent of a no contact clause between the two.
Not to forget that many matches tonight will be allowed to use either Tables, Ladders, and/or Chairs.
