I was dreading TLC. The combination of a pumpkin vs Norman Bates, a powerpoint presentation and a stupid main event didn’t do much for me. Then illness hit WWE (get better soon everyone), and it got interesting. Suddenly, two former leaders of The Bullet Club were going head to head. There was still a lot wrong with this card, but at least I now wanted to watch it. Let’s dish out some stars.
I both love and hate TLC. I love it for the action it brings. I hate it for the careers it shortens. However, with SmackDown on a bit of a roll when it comes to their big shows this was much watch TV, and while the carnage was at times tough to stomach, it was also damn entertaining.
Another PPV and another chance for me to continue my positive attitude towards the WWE. Thankfully, for both myself and the WWE, the talent have once again done their job well and it won’t be that hard. I have to be honest and say I haven’t seen last night’s Raw, although I know what happened, so that shan’t be playing to big a part in this. With that in mind, what was good about TLC?
TLC is fast approaching and it comes off one of the WWE’s biggest slumps in recent memory. The fans are fed up and even jolly old Mick Foley is taking regular pops at the current content. However, in line with my determination to only talk about positive things in relation to WWE, I am instead going to tell you exactly why I will once again be watching this WWE event.
Just days after putting on one of the best wrestling’s shows of the year, WWE followed up with TLC, one of the many gimmick PPVs in their calender. It was another card which looked strong on paper, even if it did include a ‘Stairs Match’, which is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard.
So writing about wrestling, something I spend far too much of my life watching, has kind of fallen by the wayside recently on Ramblings About… So with that in mind I’ve decided to start a series where I will go back and watch a match on the WWE Network and then do a review of it, taking into mind what we know now.
