Robert Roode's 30-Day WWE Wellness Policy Suspension Forces Change In Plans For WWE TLC PPV

Robert Roode’s Wellness Policy Suspension Forces Late Change To Originally Planned Title Match At WWE TLC 2019

It looks like this week’s WWE Wellness Policy Violation and subsequent 30-day suspension for Robert Roode has forced WWE to change their original plans for one of the championship matches initially intended for this Sunday night’s WWE TLC 2019 pay-per-view.

Originally, WWE penciled in a WWE SmackDown Tag-Team Championship match for Sunday, with the team of Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler challenging reigning title-holders The New Day at the PPV, however that has been scratched due to Roode being pulled from the active talent roster for the next month due to his WWE Wellness Policy Violation.

WWE had Roman Reigns attack Roode on television as a way of “writing him out of the story lines” until his suspension expires.

Unfortunately, Ziggler is the individual who loses out in this scenario, as the WWE SmackDown Tag-Team Championships will be defended by The New Day at this Sunday’s WWE TLC 2019 PPV as planned, however with The Revival in place of the originally scheduled team of Roode and Ziggler.

WWE TLC 2019 is scheduled to take place this Sunday, December 15, 2019 from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The show will air on pay-per-view and will stream live via the WWE Network.
