According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, the WWE hasn't been able to decide whether to unify both title belts and the company's writers have been in flux over which path is best creatively.
The report indicates that ever since the Survivor Series ended on Nov. 24 with Cena coming out and holding up his World Heavyweight Championship while interrupting Orton's celebration after a successful WWE Championship defense over The Big Show that the WWE has flip-flopped many times on what to do from there.
When the pay-per-view was over, the report indicates that a source within the company that had knowledge of the creative plans said that despite how the ending of the show came off, there were no plans of the WWE doing a unification match at TLC.
According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, the WWE went out of their way to not have the word "unification" used when Cena showed up on Monday Night RAW and challenged Orton to a match for both belts. Following last week's RAW, it was speculated that the winner of the match would carry both belts around and that the match at TLC wouldn't be a unification match, but now it appears that the WWE has something else in mind.
During Triple H's sit-down interview with Michael Cole for WWE.com, he seemed to give the indication that the WWE only wants one champion and one title, which put the unification spin back onto the match.
Reports indicate that the WWE may begin to book it as a unification match but have a twist ending to it where somehow Orton walks out with Cena's World Heavyweight Championship and Cena walks out with Orton's WWE Championship leaving the company is still stuck with two champions.
It was originally rumored that the title-for-title match was slated to take place at WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans on April 6, and perhaps a false ending at TLC will lead to the match down the road to headline the biggest show of the year.
F4WOnline reports that the creative team is under a lot of stress within the WWE lately and the constant changing of the plans is indicative of that.
"The creative team is burnt out and scared," said one WWE source via F4Wonline.com. "Scared of who might not be there too much longer. Not the type of stress anyone wants during the holiday season."
With the WWE's knack of changing plans lately, the ending of the match and whether or not it's a title unification match remains open, but either way two of the WWE's biggest stars duke it out in a title-for-title match Dec. 15 at TLC in Houston.
