Your current lineup for WWE TLC on Dec. 15 is … well. There are a pair of 3-on-1 handicap matches, which seems unlikely to entice buys. AJ vs Natty has been built as well as any Divas match is going to be. Langston-Sandow is fine, as well as prestigious, since it’s for the prestigious Intercontinental title.
The main event seems a strangely desperate attempt to pop a December buyrate 10 days ahead of Christmas. It’s a bad time of year to try and get $60 out of people but whatever. The real question is how they’ll manage to not unify the titles and create further nonsense. But ever since Cena got injured, the whole company — while often quite entertaining, IMO, and with a lot of good matches — has been topsy-turvy and weird, with heatless angles that go on too long (Punk vs Heyman & Guys) and stuff that just feels totally abandoned without any real resolution, like Orton vs Bryan and Orton vs Show.
What more can we expect here? It would be nice, I guess, to see perhaps a four-way match for the tag belts with Goldust & Cody, the Usos, the Real Americans and a fourth team (they pushed RybAxel as putting the pieces together tonight, so maybe them). Personally I’d like to just see a Goldust & Cody vs Usos match, but a face vs face tag seems unlikely right now.
There’s the continuing friction between The Miz and Kofi Kingston, which could do the Kickoff Match honors again, as it did for Survivor Series.
The useless Brodus & Tensai vs R-Truth & Xavier Woods angle that is killing Xavier Woods off the bat is out there. Maybe Brodus vs Xavier in a singles match? Maybe THAT could be the Kickoff?
Los Matadores and the midget could do something.
Bad News Barrett vs Dorf Zigger? How ‘bout that, Moggle?
YOU WOULD THINK THAT THE BIG SHOW WOULD BE MORE HEAVILY INVOLVED BUT MY GUESS IS THAT THEY HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT TO DO WITH HIM NOW AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS OF A BORING PROGRAM THAT NEVER GOT OVER AND PETERED OUT WITH A MAIN EVENT ON PPV THAT NOBODY ASKED FOR NOR WANTED
Hunico Sin Cara have some kind of an issue. Rey Mysterio is around for whatever reason. Mark Henry. Man. So many possibilities! And there’s no way they can run Goldust & Cody vs Shield or Ziggler vs Sandow again!
