WWE TLC 2018 -12/16

Recommended Posts

I'd describe Corbin as "boringly competent"

But good Lord he is not a guy who should be in literally 1/4 - 1/3 of the show every week. He's just boring. I mean, when he's in the opening segment and you use that segment to tell the audience he'll be in the main event as well, people are going to change the channel.

We’ve probably discussed this before, but I feel like the problem is Corbin impressed people on Talking Smack, where he had more freedom, but he’s not as good at the scripted stuff.

Predictions:

Charlotte Flair wins the WWE Smackdown Live Women's Title. Tough call this as I can see Becky and Asuka also winning. 

AJ Styles wins by DQ or countout to get a rematch at the Royal Rumble. 

Dean Ambrose is the new WWE Intercontinental Champion.

Ronda Rousey retains the WWE RAW Women's Championship. 

The Bar retain the WWE Smackdown Live Tag Team Titles.

Buddy Murphy defends the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. 

Braun Strowman. Don't care. 

Drew McIntyre.

Rey Mysterio.

Elias. 

R-Truth and Carmella. 

Ruby Riott.

To the surprise of no one - the finals of the MMC will be on the kickoff show as it is also being streamed on Facebook

Charlotte looked like she died on that awful looking ass-based senton off the ladder through the announcers' table.

Oh fuck you Ronda.  

I booed out loud at first but it makes so much sense booking-wise that I think it's fine.

That match had me trembling. It was fucking glorious. Charlotte's spear on Asuka through the barrier was the fastest I've ever seen a horrifying wall of muscle come at something.

Seven hells, I think Seth/Dean might still be going on.

Maybe this is the new norm.   Dreadful television and awesome PPVs?    Survivor Series was great.   TLC was fantastic outside of maybe one or two matches,  everything else delivered.

That main event was everything Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins wasn't

I was kind of amazed when she got up...and relieved. Never go full ass on an off-the-ladder senton.

Wow. Everything on the card was good to great. Not a single bad match from pre-show start to main show end. WWE PPV of the year. One of the best WWE PPVs of the decade I think.

EDIT: Portions bolded so people pay proper attention.

Seth Vs Dean was too long, think there was a this is boring chant.

Disappointed Asuka won. Guess she was too hungryyyy for the belt to lose. Ronda tweening it up eh.

"I HAVE UNTIL 5!"  and also a fucking small package finish.  Welcome back AD.  Fantastic match with a clean finish.   

Women's TLC was great as expected..   

Luger/Bret with Charlotte and Becky?  Or they going Ronda vs. Becky and Charlotte vs. Asuka II?

Apart from the match being dull, that may have been the worst announcing I've ever heard. Like, not bad in an incompetent or crazy way, but so distracting and heat-killing to spend at least 15 minutes talking about how quiet Dean is around the house. Like, if you have this liability in the booking that Renee is married to Dean, maybe acknowledge it and move on but don't shine a spotlight on it and make the entire match about it.  Unless you're going to bring Renee into it...which they are probably stupid enough to do.

Hope Charlotte isn't planning on having any children eventually. Ouch. Phenomenal match though.

MR. SMALL PACKAGE!!!

AAAAAAASSSSUUUUUKKKKKAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!  Happiest I've been for a title win in a long time.  

There's no doubt in my mind.  Singles, triple threat, fatal four way...the women are headlining WrestleMania.

Are we 100% sure that Charlotte is Ric Flair's daughter and not Terry Funks? All 3 of the people in the main are crazy people and I love em for it.

 

Bryan/Styles was great. Everything was good save for the absolutely abysmal Rollins/Ambrose match.

Oh, this please.  And have the extra even-up match be against Shayna Baszler.

I haven’t been watching a lot lately so the criticism I’d seen of Graves was falling on deaf ears. But when he quipped about Dean’s staph that “I prefer washing” or something, I swear Rene was shooting him a death glare in the silence that followed.

The woman’s match delivered so so so so much. All three of Becky, Charlotte and Asuka emote so well. There was not one point of that match where it felt choreographed. TLC matches are, by nature, the most choreographed of stupulations. They looked like they wanted to both win the title and hurt each other. Rousey’s interference was perfect. It gets them to the next part of the story. I am guessing we are headed to a three way dance woman’s match the will very likely headline WM. That is awesome. And maybe a resurgent Asuka gets there too?

It is wild. Anytime I watch the women I feel like I am watching something Important. People crapped on the debut of the Revolution all those years ago. The war has been won. The women’s division is the best wrestling in the WWE right now and are putting everyone else to shame.
