The card for Monday Night Raw's pay-per-view TLC 2017, which is taking place this Sunday, has been turned upside down following the news that several Superstars can't compete due to a viral illness that had taken both Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas off of television.

The big Shield reunion has been put on hold with Roman Reigns unable to compete; his replacement is Monday Night Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, who will be making his WWE in-ring return after 11 years.

Also being replaced is Bray Wyatt who was due to debut the 'Sister Abigail' alter-ego against Finn Balor's 'Demon King'. Instead, the 'Phenomenal One' AJ Styles takes a trip over from SmackDown LIVE to face Balor in a dream WWE match.

As you can see, TLC 2017 has already been an incredibly unpredictable pay-per-view and it hasn't even started yet, but I'm not going to let that stop me from giving you guys my top 5 predictions for the new and updated TLC 2017.

#5 Asuka wins on her main roster debut

Who will win between Asuka and Emma? (Asuka, obviously)
Who will win between Asuka and Emma? (Asuka, obviously)

Let's start with one of the easiest things to predict at TLC 2017. Asuka is going to beat Emma at the pay-per-view and she's going to do it confidently and dominantly. There won't be any outside interference, and there certainly won't be any disqualifications or screwy finishes. Asuka will pin Emma clean to establish her dominance on the main roster.

Anything else other than that finish would serve to completely undermine and ruin the prolonged buildup the female star received in NXT, making her the longest reigning NXT Women's Champion in history and one of the WWE's most dominant title-holders to ever grace the ring in modern times.

This result seems so clear-cut that even the betting odds are hugely in favour of Asuka winning the match.
