With four matches now being official and the potential for more of the current feuds to be played out in other matches, TLC is looking like it has the potential to be a great show as well as a great end to 2012.

All four programs have been given significant coverage in recent weeks, and with the matches we have set, we could be in for a great show.

Sheamus and Big Show should be finishing up their feud with their third match in a row at TLC in a chairs match that could end up being their most brutal encounter yet.

Sheamus and Big Show are a great combination, but their feud has run its course and it is time for both men to move on to other things.

CM Punk vs. Ryback in a TLC match is sure to be entertaining as CM Punk has always been able to deliver in ladder matches and Ryback's power is likely to make for some interesting spots.

The Shield will most likely make an appearance during this match based on what we have seen recently, but will they side with Punk again?

We also have the IC title being defend in a match between Kofi Kingston and Wade Barrett.

These two have traded wins over the past couple weeks, and Sunday could either be Barrett's chance to win another IC title or Kofi's chance to prove he deserves to be champion.

This past Monday we saw one more match added to the card, and it could have the most significant repercussions depending on who wins.

Dolph Ziggler will be putting his MITB case up in a ladder match against John Cena.

MITB winners rarely ever defend their cases against other superstars and only one other time in the past has a winner had to give up his case because of a loss.

Mr. Kennedy lost to Edge in a match where Edge has convinced him to put up his case and Edge went on to become the first person to successfully cash in twice.

If Cena wins, he gets the chance to redeem himself after being the first person to lose at cashing in, but a win for Ziggler would be even more valuable.

Going over John Cena in a ladder match would certainly help cement Ziggler as part of the main event scene in WWE and hopefully lead to him cashing in later that night.

These four matches all have some exciting possibilities, and that should make for a very interesting and entertaining show.

There are several other possibilities for matches that could be added to the card from R-Truth vs. Antonio Cesaro for the US title to AJ Lee vs. Tamina in a more extended match than what we saw on Monday.

The Shield and Brad Maddox could somehow play into things and there is always the chance of having a Divas title match, although Eve has not been in a solid program since defeating Kaitlyn.

2012 has been a year of mixed reviews for WWE, but there is no denying that they have had a decent runs of PPV events this year.

The road to WrestleMania starts at the Royal Rumble which means WWE would want to go out on a high note in 2012 and TLC looks like it will allow them to do that.

We are still two weeks out from the event so anything could happen between now and Dec. 16, but, rest assured that WWE will be looking to make this an exciting event with lots of surprises.

What are your predictions for TLC?

Does this show have the potential to be the best non-WrestleMania PPV this year?
