Assuming that the observed Higgs-like resonance at the Large Hadron Collider is a technicolor isosinglet scalar (the technicolor Higgs) we argue that the standard model top-induced radiative corrections reduce its dynamical mass towards the desired experimental value.

We then discuss conditions for the spectrum of technicolor theories to feature a technicolor Higgs with the phenomenologically required dynamical mass. We use scaling laws coming from modifying the technicolor matter representation, number of technicolors, techniflavors as well as the number of doublets gauged under the electroweak theory. Finally we also summarize the potential effects on the technicolor Higgs mass from walking dynamics.
