WWE Reportedly Not Holding TLC PPV In December

October 14, 2021 | Posted by Joseph Lee

UPDATE: Fightful Select has confirmed the previous report that WWE will no longer be holding TLC in December. There were originally plans to have it on December 19 before it was adjusted to December 12, and now it’s been pulled from the calendar altogether.

As for why, sources suggested it was due to how close it would have been to the Day 1 event. That PPV is one that is being “spearheaded” by Nick Khan. The plan to remove TLC from the schedule was made over a month ago and the WWE’s own internal calendars have been updated. Even publicly displayed schedules no longer list a WWE PPV for December.

Original: During the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE will not be holding a PPV in December as they usually do. Instead, their New Year’s Day show “Day 1” will count as the December PPV. That event will be held at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

WWE had previously announced plans for a PPV in mid-December at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, and it had been reported that the event will be TLC. Instead, the Chicago event will just be a regular TV show.

If this holds true, this will be the first calendar year without the TLC PPV event since 2008, as the PPV began in 2009.
