WWE.com Publishes Statement From Vince McMahon Regarding TLC Change

Bill Pritchard

WWE TLCWWE.com posted the following statement, made by Vince McMahon, on the news section of their website to clarify the TLC pay-per-view situation:

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD

During CM Punk’s brief, albeit brutal encounter with Ryback this past Monday on RAW, CM Punk suffered a knee injury. The surgery to repair Punk’s partially torn meniscus was successful.

Thus, CM Punk will be in no condition to defend the WWE Title against Ryback at the TLC pay-per-view on Sunday, Dec. 16. However, Ryback does deserve a WWE Title match against CM Punk and will have the opportunity in the very near future.

Recent events on RAW have led me to make the following match at the TLC pay-per-view. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, “The Shield,” will take on Team Hell No and Ryback. This match will be a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match and for the first time ever, it will be decided only via pinfall or submission.
