The top candidates to work the kickoff match at the TLC pay per view right now are Xavier Woods, R Truth, Brodus Clay and Tensai. There's also a chance that WWE could opt to do a singles match between Woods and Clay as well.

If Bourne can show that he can stay sober and injury free, then WWE might be willing to give him another chance since he did have a little bit of a fan base.

March 27, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While he has been eager to make his return to the company, Evan Bourne does not appear to be much of a priority for WWE at this point. After Wrestlemania 30, the focus will be on pushing guys like Roman Reigns and Antonio Cesaro. Alexander Rusev is set to make his debut, so management will be focusing on him as well. Not a lot of room for Bourne in this scenario.
