While there is talk that The Undertaker may be in line to win the World Championship from A.J. Styles in the future, it appeared on Wikipedia that ‘Taker would be competing for the title in the upcoming TLC: Tables, Ladders, & Chairs pay-per-view.  TLC will be exclusive to the SmackDown Live brand.

Several Wikipedia users have tampered with the article for the event.  The article showed that World Championship match between Dean Ambrose and A.J. Styles (a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Match), had changed to a Fatal 4-Way Match.  Ambrose was not listed as a participant;  he was replaced by The Undertaker.  A Wikipedia user had also added Shawn Michaels, but spelled Michaels’ name incorrectly.  The fourth participant added was the late Chris Benoit.

Earlier edits to the TLC 2016 Wikipedia article include the World Championship match as a Triple Threat Match;  Ambrose was listed along with Brock Lesnar.

For about two hours the article listed a second match for the PPV, a Ladder Match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship involving Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Carmella, and Nikki Bella.
