TLC loves and hates

TLC 2013

Yes, I am a few minutes late with this tonight...

Pre-show: Ziggler vs Fandango... Fandango got the win.

Match#1- C.M. Punk vs the Shield...  C.M. Punk got the win.  This was a 3 on 1 handicap match, and I have to say, the main reason I got the ppv.  It was a short match, part because Roman Reigns ended up with an eye injury. I wasn't happy with the outcome obviously, it dampened the whole ppv for me.

Match#2- women's didn't watch

Match #3- Damien Sandow vs Big E for the Intercontinental title.   Big E won keeping his title. I was really thinking that Sandow was going to score on this...not happy.

Match #4- The Fatal Four-Way for the Tag Team titles.   Real Americans vs Rhodes Family vs Big Show/Mysterio vs Axel/Ryback.    The first to be eliminated were Axel/Ryback, then Golddust used the Canadian Destroyer, just before the Real Americans were eliminated. This came down to Cody and Mysterio, and Cody Rhodes managed to get the win and they kept the tag titles. 
Crap!  I was sort of cheering for Cesaro and Swagger on this one.

As much as I love any reason to see Brad Maddox on the screen, I really could have done without the whole backstage dancing doll crap.

Match #5- Brodus Clay vs R-Truth.  Truth got the win on this.  We also saw what looks like the end of ToF...thank god!  I don't understand why they continue to call Xavier Woods a rookie when he has more ring time then Brodus does given his past in other companies.

Match #6- Kofi Kingston vs the Miz... Kofi managed to get the win on this. Even with a bad leg.

Match #7- Daniel Bryan vs the Wyatt Family... another 3 on 1 handicap match.  Bray Wyatt got the pin for the win here, after his horror show and the crowd chanting "that was creepy"

Main Event- Cena vs Orton in a traditional TLC match. At one point, Randy Orton hit John Cena with a microphone, then tucked it into his shorts like holstering a gun or something. Anyone else find that strange and a bit disturbing? Orton ended up getting the belts and becoming the Undisputed title holder.

Okay, so ppvs are obviously a hit and miss. No one ever likes everything every time. Tonight, I was disappointed by most of it. But, I'm always upset when the Shield loose.

till later

Pre-TLC 2013

This is the point in the week when I make my comments about the upcoming ppv.  This weekend is Tables Ladders Chairs.

The list so far...
Pre-show : Dolph Ziggler vs Fandango... I am thinking Ziggler has this wrapped up.

Intercontinental Championship: Big E vs Damien Sandow... vote is in Sandow's corner.

Daniel Bryan vs the Wyatt Family in a 3 on 1 Handicap match... the underdog Bryan is going to come out on top.

C.M. Punk vs the Shield in a 3 on 1 Handicap match...  Shield me! It's all about the Shield, and I think that it's going to be Seth Rollins who gets the final pin for the win.

Cena vs Randy Orton for the championship... in a traditional TLC match.  Okay, I'm one of those fans who has a strange pit in my stomach on this match.  I don't like it.  I know it's going to change the way the company is viewed and how important the winner truly is, but dude, it just sort of feels off. 
I think Cena is going to come out on top for this one.  I hope that the Undisputed belt is better designed then the current tag team belts, cause they are just un-pretty. 

You know what else I'd love to see...after Damien Sandow wins that Intercontinental belt, for Seth Rollins to challenge him for it. That belt would be perfect on Rollins!
