Five ways WWE will be changed after TLC

In case you haven’t heard, a big change is coming at WWE TLC. The WWE and World Heavyweight Championships will cease to exist, merged into one supreme Unified Championship that will be earned in that most treacherous of crucibles, a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match. By now, the WWE Universe knows the players involved: Randy Orton, WWE Champion, and John Cena, World Heavyweight Champion. They know the match was instigated by Cena after Orton retained his title through various hoodwinks by his handlers in The Authority, and they know Orton – despite the backing of the corporate power – is on somewhat shaky ground going into the biggest match of his life.

That said, the changes don’t just end with the crowning of one Champion of Champions. Having a unified titleholder just scratches the surface of what’s about to happen as 2013 comes to a close. Everything is going to change, and though the unification of the titles will undoubtedly reverberate in ways no one has yet even contemplated, has a few ideas of the immediate transformations the WWE Universe can expect.
