Even if Bryan lost, it is unclear with what the Wyatt Family will do with Bryan. A couple of weeks ago, the Wyatt's abducted Bryan and brought him to their hideout or whatever. While it seemed like Bryan would be held hostage by the Wyatt's, or potentially brainwashed like Kane may have been, Bryan just appeared on the next episode of Raw and could not have seemed any worse for wear. Michael Cole just said Bryan woke up in the parking lot, beaten down by the Wyatt's. The point I'm trying to make is that I don't know what the Wyatt's are going to do with Bryan if they beat him, because they already abducted him and that didn't seem to do much. The Wyatt family M.O. is still very sketchy and not a lot is known about them or if they work for anyone, so maybe we will see a greater amount of detail concerning the Wyatt's this Sunday.
The Rhodes brothers will defend their World Tag Team titles against the Real Americans, Ryback and Curtis Axel and Big Show and Rey Mysterio, who are suddenly a tag team. This match reeks of being just a "Let's try to get as many people on the card as possible" match, so it seems like Cody and Goldust will retain. None of these tag teams, except maybe the Real Americans, are entrenched enough to become the champions anyways.
AJ will once again defend her Diva's Title against yet another Total Diva, this time in the form of Natalya. Natayla is a better worker than anyone else AJ has faced, so this might be the best match she will have this year, but AJ should still retain. A case could be made for putting the title on a Total Diva for the sake of the TV show, but if they were going to do that, a more prominent person on the show like Brie Bella probably would have won it. The Diva's division is just so much better with the title on AJ than it would be without her having the title that it just doesn't make sense to move the title.
Big E. Langston will try to build up more steam as the Intercontinental Champion, taking on Damien Sandow. Sandow is a step above Axel, and as long as Sandow gets to talk before his match, he can get some good heat from the crowd. Langston has a lot of potential, but he still has a lot to prove before he can be considered for the main event, so hopefully this will be his best match yet.
Dolph Ziggler and Fandago will battle in the increasingly irrelevant pre-show match. Fandango and especially Ziggler have been poorly booked over the last 6 months, as WWE has really failed to capitalize on both men's respective popularity. Fandago wins because WWE seems to be more interested in pushing Summer Rae than either man in the match.
TLC will hopefully set a good pace for Wrestlemania season. The card has more potential than any show since Summerslam, so it looks like WWE could end 2013 on a positive note.
