Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley Make a Monstrous Team in WWE

Braun Strowman has found an ally in Bobby Lashley. The two men have unofficially become a tag team in WWE and while it may or may not be a temporary alliance, it’s obvious that they do match up extremely well together.

Finally Strowman has a partner he can trust and more importantly, he has one that carries his share of the load. The Monster Among Men has been nothing short of a phenom in Vince McMahon’s company and he’s never really been the type of guy that’s ever had to reach out to anyone for any kind of help. Strowman is ordinarily a one-man war machine.

But that had everything to do with the roster of Raw Superstars around him. Big Show stepped out of the spotlight. Kane entered politics. Brock Lesnar works alone. In terms of size and strength, no one was really ever capable of standing toe-to-toe with Braun, much less teaming with him. Of course that is no longer the case now.

Lashley is the perfect compliment to Strowman. He’s big, he’s strong and he’s rock solid. More importantly, he’s a veteran. Strowman’s education in WWE came from Luke Harper, Big Show and Kane. Each one is also a vet and each one instructed Strowman on the ways of the big man. Now Lashley can be part of Strowman’s continuing education.

One of the key elements of this new partnership is Lashley himself. Though he cut his teeth in WWE, he is now a clean slate. He has no recent history to draw from, no soured alliances to exploit. He hasn’t let anyone down in the company recently because he hasn’t been around.

There’s nothing flashy about Bobby. He’s not loud, he’s not arrogant and he’s not overconfident. He has no agenda and there’s no reason for him to betray anyone. The only thing Lashley wants is to compete and every time he does, he makes an impact. He is the real deal.

That is exactly the kind of character that Strowman would want at his side. Braun has had nothing but contempt for everyone around him and that includes both heels and babyfaces. No one has really been on his level and Strowman knew it. He had no respect for anyone because they just could not measure up to him. Fans have seen this before.

The first real allies Stone Cold Steve Austin found in WWE were The APA. Bradshaw and Farooq were two tough guys that only wanted to fight and The Texas Rattlesnake appreciated that. He knew he could trust them when he ordinarily never trusted anyone. This is the dynamic that’s playing out between Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley.

Braun could not remain on his own forever. He’s still wildly popular with the fans and he’s still over but now he has a new layer to his character. Fans now see Strowman as a guy who can play well with others, as long as there is a mutual understanding involved. Braun shows up, wreaks havoc and destroys everything in his path. Lashley is more than happy to join in the fun.

If this team continues, they could become the most dominant duo in WWE. No team on Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live would be able to touch them. They could have great wars with The Authors of Pain, The Bludgeon Brothers, The Bar, or any other team that decided to try them. Strowman and Lashley would be Monster Inc and no one could hope to slow them down.

But while Braun has gained a new partner, he has also gained a new opponent. Much like The Undertaker before him, Strowman’s biggest challenge thus far has been finding opponents that can hang with him in the ring. WWE developed new adversaries for Taker with Mankind and Kane. Now Lashley can be the newest threat to topple The Monster Among Men.

The same elements that make them a good team would also make them good enemies. They do have much in common and they are both massively strong Superstars. But Lashley has already been down the road that Strowman is now traveling. Bobby has seen it all. Mentally he would have an advantage over Braun because of the experience factor.

It would be a natural rivalry, just as natural as their partnership. Lashley would be perhaps the most important test for Strowman because he is still in such phenomenal shape. Big Show and Kane are both past their primes but Lashley has perhaps not even reached his yet. It would definitely be a war for the ages. If that war included the Universal Championship, it could become the biggest feud in WWE.

WWE has invested a lot in Braun Strowman. He is a major star in the company and he’s in it for the long haul. If he is to continue to improve, then he must continue to grow. Part of that growth includes placing guys around him that can both help him and benefit from working with him as well. This is where Bobby Lashley comes in.

No one knows how long WWE will keep these two men together. But everyone knows that the potential for great moments and highly entertaining matches is definitely there. Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley are each finding their way in WWE and now they can find it together.

The Good, Bad and Ugly: WWE Raw 12/17/18

Published

on

WWE Raw Elias Bobby Lashley

Vince McMahon showed up on WWE Raw to “shake things up!” Was the result Good, Bad, or downright ugly?

With Tables, Ladders and Chairs in the books, Vincent Kennedy McMahon has decided that Monday Night Raw needs him. The rumors are swirling but the wait is over now.  Was Raw finally Good, especially in front of the “Boss?”  Or is it so far gone, even Vinnie Mac can’t save it?

THE GOOD

Opening Segment w/ Mr. McMahon

“Change,” that’s what this is all about.  Vince brought out Stephanie, HHH, and Shane to say that the McMahon’s have failed the fans, and that changes now.  It was quick and emotional.  Vince had it all wrapped up, until Baron Corbin showed up.  He wanted to have a conversation about his injustices from TLC, to the chagrin of the McMahons and the audience.  The crowd was so loud, and maintained this noise the whole segment. Corbin got hammered by the crowd. He could barely be heard.  After Corbin plead his case, explaining why he should be the GM, HHH announced he will be permanently GM if he can beat, “The Olympic Champion” Kurt Angle.

Finn Balor vs. Dolph Ziggler

At TLC post-match, Ziggler put a hurting on Finn Balor, setting up the match tonight.    Both guys are high intensity and evenly matched.  This match had strong potential.  This really is a high caliber match especially for Raw.  Not a bad way to boost the ratings using pure Professional Wrestling.  The pace was done well, with Finn and Dolph feeling each other out and countering each other’s offense.  Everything looked smooth.  The two fed off of each other and had tremendous rhythm.  Plenty of close falls in this one, it was hard to tell who had control.  It was over, with a “Zig Zag” from Ziggler but only for a two count.  Out comes McIntyre baiting Dolph into a fight.  Ziggler beat down McIntyre and hit a “famouser” on Balor, only for yet another two count.  Balor composed himself but get destroyed by McIntyre, causing Balor to Win by DQ. McIntyre then crushed Zigger, with a “Glasgow Kiss” and “Claymore Kick” to finish Ziggler.

“New Intercontinental Champion” Dean Ambrose Promo

Ambrose leading a “Swat Team” with gas mask, started off shaming the crowd.  Ambrose fed off of cheap heat, with a mix of cheers and boos from the audience.  Ambrose as always antagonized and called Seth Rollins out.  Rollins no-showed and as a result, Ambrose issued an open challenge for the I.C. Title.  Surprisingly, Tyler Breeze accepted. 

Intercontinental Championship – Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Tyler Breeze

Interestingly enough Tyler Breeze is getting a fantastic opportunity for not only the Intercontinental Championship, but to show off to the fans what he can do.  Breeze is a great talent, and this is a perfect chance to show it.  Ambrose took control beating Tyler Breeze down.  Breeze got some big moves off, getting a few close calls with quick pinning combinations.  Out of nowhere, Dean Ambrose hits a “Dirty Deeds” winning a close match, and defending his Intercontinental Championship.  Ambrose really has to stop on the mic, but went off after his match until Rollins music hit.  Rollins attacked revealing he was one of the “Swat” guys with a gas mask.  Ambrose composed himself and retreated. 

 

AOP vs. B-Team vs. The Revival vs. Lucha House Party (Winner gets a Raw Tag Team Title Opportunity)

Shane McMahon made this match to showcase the many talents of the Raw Tag Team Division.  Depending on the winner, the fans could see something special coming up.  Lucha House Party had a lot of ring time, but mostly getting crushed by everyone.  AOP looked sloppy, but the Revival as always showed their tremendous value.  The match was pure chaos.  The ref and even the camera guy lost control of this one.  It was confusing as hell to watch.  Wilder and Bo Dallas has some great counters until Revival ended it with a “Shatter Machine.”  Revival Wins! 

THE BAD

Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin w/ Referee Heath Slater

As good as it always is to see Kurt Angle, the match started off rough.  The strikes looked weak and the timing was off.  While the match continued, The Raw Tag Team Champions Gable and Roode and Apollo Crews, were added by HHH to make this a Handicap Match.  This was so over the top.  Corbin tried to runoff but couldn’t and continued to get jumped. This was very weird and boring.  Outcomes Shane McMahon making the match No DQ. Pushing this even further.  Heath Slater started in on Corbin.  This really was awkward and kind of a waste.  The McMahon’s could have done better than this. Angle Wins with the “Angle Slam.” After the match, the gang brought in a table, and Corbin was “Olympic Slammed” adding insult to injury.

Bobby Lashley “Concert”

Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush open with an “Elias” like setting.  Lio was effective at getting the crowd fired up as he always does. Lashley started with the poses. The crowd couldn’t wait for this to end. Elias popped up into the ring, was announced and hit Lashley with a guitar before fleeing.  This was a short, unnecessary segment overall, and it really didn’t add to the show in any Good way.

Ronda Rousey Promo

The crowd surprisingly let Rousey off easy, considering how they felt about her involvement at TLC.  Her match at TLC was Bad, and her spot in the Main Event made things even worse.  Rousey needs a ton of work on the mic and it shows.   As the promo went on, it got worse, and the crowd started getting antsy. “Becky” chants grew louder as time passed.  Rousey went on to introduce a post-PPV open challenge.  This is always a Good thing.  Stephanie McMahon then brought out a loud group of female talent, and announced the winner of the 8-Person Gauntlet faces Rousey for the title.

Gauntlet Match 1:  AliciaFox vs. Bailey:  Fox is one of the most awkward performers in the locker room. She moves around way too much and over sells.  Bayley couldn’t keep up.  This looked Bad.  As it went on it got worse.  For such a veteran, Fox looks so uncomfortable in there.  Bayley tweeked her knee, Fox kicked her in the face and as she was pinning Bayley, she got rolled up for the pin.

Gauntlet Match 2: Dana Brooke vs. Bayley:  Dana Brooke came out aggressive.  She looked decent in there, showing obvious improvement in her ring ability.   Out of the blue, Bayley hits a Bayley to Belly for the pin to continue.

Gauntlet Match 3:  Mickie James vs. Bayley:  Mickie James really struggles in there.  Another vet that just over sells and looks bad, week after week. Everything she did looked Bad. Bayley was exhausted but and the fatigue showed.  Mickie hit a “Mick Kick” but only for a two count.  Bayley kept selling the knee and did some sloppy work.  Mickie hit the worse DDT I have ever seen and moved on.

Gauntlet Match 4: Ember Moon vs. Mickie James: Mickie James viciously attacked Moon right away stopping all momentum.  Again, Mickie James looked awkward and sloppy. Ember took a bad bump on the apron, and the match continued.  It was really sloppy, and hard to watch.  Ember Moon is a great talent but Mickie couldn’t hang.  Ember countered a big move and came off with an “Eclipse” to move forward.

Gauntlet Match 5: Natalya vs. Ember Moon:  Ember cut Natalya off right away and started a series of submissions to ware down Natalya.  Again, this wasn’t very Good, as Natalya looked slow and not into it. As Ember was flying around the ring, Natalya knocked her out with a close-line and followed it up with some big moves.  After a few reversals, Natalya got a quick roll-up for the pin

Gauntlet Match 6: Ruby Riott vs. Natalya:  After a rough night at TLC due to a lackluster performance by Natalya, here we have Round 2.  Ruby Riott is a tremendous talent but again, she can only do so much.  As this went on though, it got better.  Ruby Riott is a great talent,and the more we get to watch, the better. It wasn’t great but decent considering. Natalya again squeaked out a pin out of no where.

Gauntlet Match 7: Sasha Banks vs. Natalya:  Sasha Banks can go and has tremendous talent.  It just didn’t shine tonight, much like most of the other Gauntlet Matches.  This was a mess.  The pace was off, there was confusion, and it just didn’t click.  Aside from the poor work, the crowd was behind Natalya the whole time.  Natalya worked her way up and got Banks into a “Sharpshooter” right in the middle of the ring only to be devastated in the corner by Banks.  Banks got Natalya into a “Half Crab,” however escaped but got sucked right into the “Banks Statement.”  Natalya powered back and hit a “German Suplex.”  Natalya then worked Sasha before locking “The Boss” again into the “Sharpshooter” only this time for the victory.  Rousey closed the show by coming down to congratulate her friend and hype for the match next week.

THE UGLY:  N/A

Final Tally

  • Good:  5
  • Bad:  10
  • Ugly:  0

Overall Results:  Very Bad! The Gauntlet Match was so long and some of the worst stuff we have seen in recent memory.    

This week’s Raw was very important, and it was supposed to be a new format.  We had some highs and lows, however overall, this wasn’t Good, it was Bad. It was really Bad.  Raw hasn’t changed, it just has a new gimmick that looks like will be shoved down the fans throat.  Can Raw ever bounce back?  We shall see.

The Good, Bad And Ugly Review: WWE TLC 2018

Published

on

WWE TLC Asuka

The last WWE PPV of the year is WWE TLC. Where does it fall on the Good, Bad or Ugly scale? Bobby will break it down and let you know.

 

Tables, Ladders and Chairs.  So much going on in the WWE right now.  They have to get the asses in the seats, literally. We have some major Championship Matches, and opportunities for change.  This show is by far one of the most important we have had in a long time. Vince McMahon himself will return to Raw tomorrow, showing TLC’s significance.  Can WWE TLC deliver, will it succeed?

THE GOOD

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Buddy Murphy (c) vs. Cedric Alexander

This was action packed as always.  They have such talent, and the ability to stun the audience every spot.  WWE TLC was no different.  The match went back and forth in the beginning, Alexander and Murphy switched control often creating many close falls.  Alexander looked to have the victory many times, and in return Murphy wore down the much faster Alexander to gain control and change momentum. This was a fantastic wrestling match, and had the crowd hot for “205.”   Alexander got aggravated not being able to seal the deal, and Murphy capitalized.  Murphy after getting devastated slammed Alexander into the corner and kneed him in the face to retain. Murphy Wins! 

SmackDown Tag Team Championship – The Bar (c) vs. The Usos vs. New Day

Surprisingly off the bat, New Day didn’t utilize Big E.  The Bar brought the pain, destroying their opponents, and maintaining control.  Xavier Woods was beaten down, with frequent tags between Sheamus and Cesaro.  The match had a slow pace at first.  Uso’s come in and fire it up with Kofi Kingston, waking up the Uso’s “Home-team”crowd.  Cesaro changed everything and dominated again.  Cesaro had a picture perfect Sharpshooter on Kingston that Woods saved with a stiff DDT.  However Sheamus comes in missing a “Brogue Kick”, and hit with a double stomp, followed by a “trouble in paradise.  Woods then hit an elbow drop on the money.  After some back and forth, Sheamus hits the“Brogue Kick” on Woods for the victory and retains the Tag Team Championships for his team at WWE TLC. 

Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin (TLC match) w/ Referee Heath Slater

Everyone was wondering what was going to happen here. Corbin getting on the mic for cheap heat did its job.  Everyone hates him so much.  Strowman came down to the ring and of course cannot compete, however brought up a good point, that No DQ means he can legally get some help, leading to everyone that was done wrong by Corbin to circle the ring with chairs.  Apollo Crews, Finn Balor, Gable and Roode all got their piece but not before Heath Slater got in a shot after taking his ref shirt off. Corbin got hit with some good chair shots before retreating.  Kurt Angle wasn’t having it and interrupted his escape, hitting him repeatedly with a chair.  The gang then picked Corbin clean hitting Corbin each with their respective finishers.  Strowman pins him with his foot, for the victory.  Strowman Wins!  Corbin is no longer GM, and Strowman is on his way to face Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble for the Universal Championship.   This could have been Ugly, but it was entertaining and unexpected, which is Good for everyone in these hard times at WWE TLC.   

Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre

This is set up to be a very important match overall. Whoever wins, could be pushed into the title scene any moment.  McIntyre was just brutal.  He really had this unstoppable presence early on, countering every bit of offense from Balor.  Balor got some offense aggressively working the knee, however got belly to belly suplexed clear across the ring. Every time Balor got too much offense, McIntyre would destroy him.  There is just so much talent here.  It was such a clean match.  Balor hit a standing double stomp and got some momentum hitting some big moves.  Balor looked for the finish but got slammed with a tilt-a-whirl back-breaker.  McIntyre hit a disgusting move off of the middle rope but only for a two count. 

The fans appreciated the effort and enjoyed this match.  Balor out of desperation caught McIntyre in the ring apron but again was countered.  McIntyre hit a Glasgow Kiss Head-butt.  Then Ziggler came out of no-where hitting a superkick.  McIntyre however came back quickly against “The Showoff” leading to Balor smashing McIntyre with a missile dropkick finishing with the Coup de Grace off the top for the hard fought victory.  Balor Wins!  Dolph Ziggler then attacked Balor backstage during an interview, leading to match on Raw this Monday.  

WWE Championship – Daniel Bryan (c) vs. AJ Styles

Good technical match overall.  Daniel Bryan taking it slow making AJ wait to get started is a classic heel move.  Both guys doing some unique moves and keeping the pace going.  This felt like a true Championship Match, which WWE TLC needed, and showed the competitors’ expertise. Bryan kept working the ribs, and hit some very hard kicks to Styles keeping him down.  Styles hit a huge closeline to buy some time.  Styles got some revenge and beat Bryan down inside and out of the ring.  Styles got his move reversed, and Bryan destroyed him with knees and a devastating neck breaker. 

Bryan followed up with “Yes Kicks” on that were on the money.  Styles got another counter with a huge kick to the head.  He worked Bryan’s knee doing major damage to the Champion.  AJ teased a “Styles Clash” but ended up rolling up and getting Bryan into a half crab. Bryan worked out of it, and got Styles into the “Yes Lock.”  Styles hit a “450” off the ropes, but didn’t get the pin, the two went back and forth and ended up with Bryan in the “calf-crusher.”  Daniel Bryan escaped, but got right back into the action.  After some back and forth, Styles hit a small package that Daniel Bryan reversed for the 1-2-3.  Daniel Bryan retains!     

SmackDown Women’s Championship – Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka (TLC match)

The “Main Event” of WWE TLC–this already had so much going for it.  The competitor’s, “The Man,” the crowd, the lights and sounds.  It has it all going into it.  A true historical match.  Full speed right away, this match wasn’t slow and boring.  Everyone brought their Agame in this one.  We saw constant exchange between the three headliners. Asuka destroyed Becky Lynch by tossing her onto a ladder, and power-bombed Charlotte through a table.  Charlotte was stunned but managed to return hitting Asuka with a chair and a huge moonsault off the top to the outside.  Becky continued this insanity crushing Charlotte of the top of the ladder through the announce table.  Asuka nearly had the win, until Becky cut her off fighting up the ladder.  Charlotte punished both of them coming in hot with a kendo stick. 

Charlotte went psycho, until Lynch destroyed her sambo suplexing her into the barrier.  Asuka then went ballistic on Lynch with the kendo stick getting followed up by a spear from Charlotte through the barrier.  This led to Lynch getting close to the belt and a hateful face-off with Lynch and Flair.   Charlotte got the better of it, and set up Lynch on a table on the outside, slapping the hell out of her before front flipping through her and the table.  Just when Charlotte had it locked, Asuka ran up the ladder to put up a fight.  Becky Lynch came back in, and set up right next to Asuka and Charlotte ultimately fighting Flair who went over on Asuka. Ronda Rousey then got involved unexpectedly, and threw Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch off the ladder.  Asuka then had the belt to herself, climbing the ladder and winning the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship!  This match including the ending was just awesome!!! It saved the show.  Congrats Asuka, whatever is coming next will be fantastic!

THE BAD

Elias vs. Bobby Lashley w/ Lio Rush (Ladder Match w/ Guitar)

As always, while everyone was excited to “Walk With Elias” we did not get to as he was interrupted.  This is expected by now, but hearing Lio Rush doesn’t do the crowd any favors.  He gets a lot of heat though, and anyone working with Elias will get a reaction.  There was some decent action, and Lio Rush showed how impressive he is as well.  The physicality that these two powerhouses bring was on point, and it was a shame that this was on the pre-show.  Elias essentially fighting two guys at once, caused him to get over even more.  Elias is so hot with everyone right now, it will be great to see what will come next. Even with Lio Rush almost getting to the guitar ahead of Elias, “The Drifter” gets it!  Elias Wins, but gets completely destroyed by Lashley and Rush following the match. The highlight was that this was short and sweet and although this match wasn’t Ugly, it wasn’t Good either. 

Natalya vs. Ruby Riott (Tables Match)

This feud is rough, and has attributed quite a bit to the low ratings that Raw has seen lately.  Ruby Riott and The Riott Squad is money, but Natalya really brings it down a notch.  Liv Morgan out of nowhere took a major fall through a table, most likely breaking her ribs.  It was a nasty bump.  Natalya is so corny, even when she cussed and slapped Riott, it wasn’t believable.  Natalya beat on Riott nearly winning the match but took out Sarah Logan instead.  Riott continued to mock Jim Neidhart’s death making no sense.  Natalya after a few awkward miscues gets Riott into a “sharpshooter’, however Riott wiggled the Jim Neidhart table onto Natalya’s head breaking the hold. 

Natalya later hit a hard Electric Chair but moved the table first so that it couldn’t be used.  Natalya pulled out a Ruby Riott table, and her father’s jacket and set it up in the ring which took forever.  Ruby Riott countered but Natalya took back control.  Natalya climbed the ropes but waited too long again.  Riott kicked her in the face, climbed to the top, went for a hurricanrana but then got power-bombed by Nattie through the table. Natalya Wins!  This really was a waste of time, but not taking anything away from Ruby Riott, she could only do so much here.     

Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio (Chairs Match)

Rey Mysterio beat the living hell out of Orton throughout the whole beginning, beating him senseless until missing a huge spot landing onto a chair. Orton of course came back with a vengeance.  Orton took his time picking Mysterio apart.  The pace was very slow as Orton likes to play that role.  However it doesn’t suit Rey Mysterio well in these type of matches.  This was borderline boring.  Rey Mysterio came back hitting a “619” only to be cut off again by Orton.  Orton setup Rey Mysterio for an RKO onto a row of chairs, however Mysterio countered into a roll-up pin for the victory.  With the level of talent, this certainly could and should have been a lot better.  This really wasn’t Good and didn’t hold its weight on such a big night. 

Raw Women’s Championship Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nia Jax

The opening lockup into the air by Jax was nice, but was ruined with a series of horrendous strikes back and forth.  Rousey hit a fantastic roll up into an arm bar, but was quickly overpowered into a sit down powerbomb by Nia Jax.  There was a decent series of counters but Nia smashed Rousey into the barricade stopping all momentum.  Rousey came back flying strikes but again was ruined by some slow moving awkward offense by Jax. 

Jax went over the top by going for a Samoan Drop from the second buckle however was countered by a predictable powerbomb by Rousey.  Tamina had very little to do in this match but interfered briefly delaying an inevitable arm bar by Rousey for the victory.  Rousey retains!  Although there were some decent moments, overall this really was Bad. Miscues, awkwardness and a horrible pace made this another Bad one.  Becky Lynch added a little flavor backstage attacking Nia Jax and reminding her she is “the man.” 

Intercontinental Championship Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose

It is very surprising that this isn’t an actual TLC stipulated match. Aside from that, there has been a lot of buildup between these two talents.  It had some Good moments, mostly by Rollins.  Rollins was getting beat on by Ambrose quite a bit, as Ambrose worked the knee.  The psychology was really strange in this match.  Rollins’ knee was hurt one minute then completely unfazed a second later. 

The two top guys worked until exhaustion, however sometimes, it was just too slow.  The high-spots were huge though, but we have seen them all before.  Nothing special here, which is beyond logic.  The Ambrose Shield Spot was just purely horrendous but Rollins followed it up with a sick kick to the face.  Ambrose retaliated by hitting a deep Dirty Deeds for the non-climatic victory.  We have a new Intercontinental Champion but this match was one of the biggest disappointments in recent history, and that is saying something.          

THE UGLY

WWE Mixed Match Challenge Final – R-Truth & Carmella vs. Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox

Legitimately, the fact that this wasn’t on the pre-show is criminal. A match nearly no fan cares about, with lower echelon talent was perfect bait for the pre-show slot.  Carmella and R-Truth got the crowd going, and Mahal being a former Champion recently showed some potential for something Good, however Alicia Fox, the Singh Brothers and the fact that there is little interest, made this an Ugly Match.  A few botches, a lot of miscues, and complete waste of time, this really was a horrible match.  Thankfully, Carmella locked up Fox in the Code of Silence rather quickly, R-Truth and Carmella Win! 

Final Tally

  • Good:  6
  • Bad:  5
  • Ugly:  1

Overall:  Good (The Main Event pushed it over the edge in many ways)

Don’t forget, this show had some pretty bad moments.  The Good outweighed the Bad, but it really had some very tough things to get past.  The Main Event however, as expected was special.  It really killed it and had it’s rightful place as the Main Event and in history.  Asuka winning the Title is huge, and wherever this story is going, will be money! Please continue to follow, comment, like and share.  TLC is now in the books.  Vince McMahon is back tomorrow, which will make for an interesting Monday Night Raw.
