WWE TLC News: Miz’s Cash-In, Firefly Inferno Match, Roman Reigns, RAW Tag Title

WWE held their TLC 2020 event this past Sunday at their new ThunderDome venue at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

WrestleVotes reported that WWE’s creative came up with several ideas over the weekend for The Miz’s planned cash-in of his Money in the Bank briefcase at the event. One source stated that “they all sucked” and WWE’s creative issues have not been an exclusive problem to Vince McMahon.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that the Firefly Inferno match between Randy Orton and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt was taped Sunday afternoon and post-produced shortly afterwards. Johnson reported that the remaining matches of the event were aired live as it happened. Johnson also reported that WWE officials did have talks at one point of the Universal Championship TLC match main eventing the show but decided against it due to the special effects and planned ending of the Inferno match.

During the Universal Championship match, Roman Reigns was seen favoring his shoulder which quickly generated speculation that he might have been injured during the match. Fightful Select (via 411Mania.com) reported that was not the case and instead he was feeling fine after the match and was just simply selling being hurt.

Shelton Benjamin dedicated on Instagram his RAW Tag Team Championship victory to the late Shad Gaspard.
