Views From The Turnbuckle: TLC Review, Match Ratings And Analysis
This was a potential show stealer, but ended up being a wasted opportunity. Kingston has been showing a little more attitude, which is good to see, but WWE wasted a great chance to elevate this feud. They made the match No Disqualification, but outside of an exposed turnbuckle spot, they didn't really break many rules. This feud has been going on for a little while, and they had a real good street fight, then the fans might accept it as being a bigger deal than they were anticipating. Use various weapons, have both men come out in jeans, do something different. Instead, they had basically the same match that they have been having for the past month or so. Not a good decision.
Brodus Clay vs R-Truth: DUD
The match served no purpose except to make Clay a full-fledged heel. Clay has great size and ring presence, and a heel turn could work. However, this was something that could have easily been done on Raw or Smackdown, and that time could have been spent better elsewhere.
Fandango vs Doph Ziggler: * 1/2 (1.5 stars)
Fandango gets the win because WWE cares more about Summer Rae than they do about either Fandago or Ziggler. A giant waste for Ziggler, and ever since Swagger kicked him in the face back in May it has been downhill for him.
Overall, TLC was a decent show that got a lot of help from a very strong undercard. It wasn't perfect, but it was WWE's best show since Summerslam, and it snapped a streak of very underwhelming PPVs, which is exactly what they need going into the Royal Rumble.
