WWE’s Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2012 will be worth every penny.
At least that’s what the Twitter hype would suggest.
The PPV event will feature many of professional wrestling's biggest stars, and many of them and their fans have been sounding off prior to the competition.
On Sunday morning, Sheamus tweeted about his attempt to knock off Big Show in a Chairs match for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Much of the crowd is pulling for Sheamus, perhaps because the 7’0”, 440-pounder isn’t the most polarizing wrestler in the world. Or at least that’s what one WWE fan would lead you to believe.
want sheamus to win tonight, big show is so dull as champ.— #Nattie4DivasChamp (@xGeorgebyNature) December 16, 2012
While Sheamus vs. Big Show may be the evening’s most anticipated showdown, Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena in a Ladder match isn’t far behind. The two will compete for Ziggler’s World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank contract.
Many fans, like Emmanuel Arevalo, are predicting a Ziggler victory because it’d create a more entertaining plot.
I don't like to be negative,but I just can't see anything positive about John Cena beating Dolph Ziggler & becoming Mr.MitB again.— Emmanuel Arevalo (@E13A) December 16, 2012
Scott M. Fishman of the Miami Herald is hoping for a script in which Cena bites the dust as well.

Judah Friedlander is choosing to side with Cena nation, though. He isn’t too confident in Ziggler. In fact, he thinks he can take him.

R-Truth will also face off against champion Antonio Cesaro on Sunday night in a singles match for the U.S. title.
Rob McNichol of The Sun said of a potential R-Truth championship:
Going to have to stop crying at some point tonight. I think R-Truth trying to win the US title might set me off again later, though. #SPOTY— Rob McNichol (@RobMcNichol) December 16, 2012
And in the cleverest way possible, Cesaro guaranteed a victory against the half-wrestler, half-rapper.
Truth Loses. -Cesaro #WWETLC— Antonio Cesaro (@AntonioCesaro) December 16, 2012
Kofi Kingston was a bit more animated in expressing how hyped he is for his Intercontinental Championship match against Wade Barrett.

And if you haven’t heard, Barrett adopted a new nickname prior to his showdown with Kingston.
Twitter is guaranteed to liven up even more when TLC 2012 kicks off.
