WWE TLC Recap!

Hapy Monday Novas! Last night was the Tables, Ladders & Chairs event that was Raw’s exclusive showing. Todya we will recap the night and give our opinions on the matches as well as the possible fallouts and setups for the next WWE event; Survivor Series! Let’s start with the kickoff show! I would like to say that I was perfect in my predictions for this match Read the predictions by clicking here!

Alicia Fox versus Sasha Banks – The two Superstars have had a budding rivalry ever since Alicia Foxx started appearing back n TV. The match was during the preshow and wasn’t a bad one at that. Results: Sasha Banks wins by submission!

Emma vs Asuka-  tlc2  The night started off with the debut of Empress of Tomorrow, Asuka! I have to admit, I thought the match would be a bit better but it wasn’t bad. Emma showed off a range of resilence and Asuka came in a bit flat to me, but still determined to make a great debut. Results: Asuka wins!

Cruiserweight match #1 –    The first cursierweight match was a tag team between The Brian Kendrick & Gentleman Jack Gallagher versus the team of Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann. This was a very entertaining match and Iam happy that the crusierweights are getting a bit more prime time air time. It was everything you would expect from high flying moves, to dynamic strikes that had the crowd starting a few chants. Results: Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann wins by pinfall!

Raw Women’s Championship Match –  tlc7   The Raw Women’s Champinship match was between challenger Micki James and Champion Alexa Bliss. After weeks of poking and prddingAlexa met Micki in the ring fr 1 on 1 combat. Both Superstars gave a pretty good performance and Alexa had to respect Micki’s abilities in ring. Results: Alexa James retains.

Cruiserweight Match #2 –   tlc8  The second crusierweight match was the championship match between Enzo Amore and champion Kalisto. This is Enzo’s rematch form losing the title to Kalisto a few weeks back. Enzo has taken on more of a heel role lately and I like it. He has always been a btit rough, but now he’s not pandering to the crowd and taking the full heel turn.  Results: Enzo wins by unscrupulous means!

Jason Jordan versus Elias Samson –  tlc6   This match became a thing during the event. At the beginning of the show, Json was cheering on his dad Kurt Angle when Elias iteruppted, insulted Jordan and asked to go out and play some music. Elias came out twice during the night with his guitar and was frced off stage by Jordan throwing vegetables at him. It was pretty funny and I think it is making Jordan’s character a bit more likeable. Fast forward to the match where Jordan battled Elias and put on a gret show! He is a great technician and with a bit more mic work and likeability he can definitely become a star in the WWE. Results: Booker T lost himself when Jordan won by pinfall. The problem was that Samson’s shoulder was up and they kept showing it on the replay.

First Main Event-  tlc5  I’m pretty much calling the match between Finn Balor and Aj Styles the first main event because it was a dream match! I’ve been wanting to see the 2 club leaders go at it with their similar styles and builds. This match was last minute as Bray Wyatt was unable t wrestle and you can see a few times where their moves didn’t sync up. Was it the dream match that knocked us out of our seats, no, but it was still pretty darn good! My gripe with the match was that Finn seemed to wrestle like “Finn” and  nt the “Demon King.” There’s a bit of a difference becuase the Demon is more aggressive and full out and I didn’t get that vibe last night. Aj was Phenomenal as always and kudos for putting together a match last minute. Results: Finn Balor wins but gives AJ the clubs hand gesture to solidify respect.

Second Main Event-  tlc3  The true main event was the Tables, Ladders and Chairs handicap match between Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrse and Kurt Angle taking on The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Braun Strowman and Kane. This match was brewing since the start of the show with Seth and Dean providing Kurt with a vest. Kurt is stepping in for Roman Reigns who wasn’t cleared to wrestle tonight (although I was waiting for his music to play and him to run down to the ring all match long lol). Kurt joined the Shield in the entrance and they entered the ring with chairs. After a few minutes of having the upper hand by beating down everyone with chairs the numbers started to affect the team of 3. Regaining the upper hand Seth and Dean stoopped my heart by jumping off of ladders onto Kane and Strowman on the announcers table. I was screaming Seth your kneeee!!! lol. This gave way for the 3 remaining Superstars to beat up Kurt and send him back to the locker room. After much back and forth, something that was hinted at the beginning happened. Kane and Braun exchanged a weird look that I thought nothing of before Kane smacked Braun in the back with a chair.  tlc1  From there the match got away from Miz with Brauna nd Kane fighting each other as well. Kurt returns and we had a few great Olympic slams before Miz gets tripled powerbombed. Results: The Shield + Kurt Angle wins by pinfall. Did you expect any other result?

Those were the results from the match and while it wasn’t the best event to date, the 2 main events definitely made the event worth watching. Also the crusierweight #1 match was pretty good. I would give the event overall a C rating but those 3 matches get A++. What did you think of the event? What do you think will happen tonight on RAW leading up to Survivor Series? What was your favorite match last night? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE TLC Preview & Predictions!

Happy Saturday Novas! Here’s our predictions for the Tables, Ladders and Chairs event taking place tomorrow October 22nd at 8PM EST!

Tables, Ladders and Chairs is one of the best events that WWE puts on each year. This event have specialty matches that incorporate tables, ladders, chairs or a comnination of the 3 which makes for a heightened viewer experience. Unfortunately, as pointed out by a great WWE blogger Deezango in his predictions, this event only has 1 stipulation match and that’s the main event. Not going to lie, I’m a little disappointed that this was not planned out any better. I’m sure you could have incorporated a ladder for the women’s champinship match or chairs for Finn Balor versus Bray Wyatt. Oh well on to the predictions!

Kickoff Match Sasha Banks vs Alicia Foxx –  20171016_TLC_SashaFox--307e2137a3cefc417766e1564196c848  I’m not quite sure how I feel about this match. I’m not really interested in it one way or the other so I guess I will just skip to my predictions. My predictions: Sasha Banks will win!

Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann vs Gentleman Jack Gallagher & The Brian Kendrick –  20171016_TLC_BrainJack--91192ce65eb7d0266dc8cd5745ae6d50  This feud started on 205 live when a once jaded Gallagher switched sides and assisted Kendrick in the beat down of Cedric Alexander. This is similar to the heel turn that TJP took earlier this year. Now Gallagher and Kendrick will take on Cedric and his partner Swann. My prediction: Cedric and Rich will win!

Raw Women’s Championship Match–  20170820_TLC_temp_blissmickie--5ddba720ab859c756298e2acec62cac9  Mickie Jaimes looks to challenge the Goddess alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Title. The constant attack on Micki Jaimes age has been taken too far and now the former champion seeks to take revenger on Alexa. If you remember, Alexa brought Micki back to WWE when Becky Lynch was champion I believe. They’ve already had a feud on Smackdown Live and now they will have another on Raw. My prediction: Alexa Bliss will retain her championship.

Demon King vs Sister Abigail

20171006_TLC_DemonFinnAJStyles--04a23dc6c86913ce622b43afd6d920f8
Aj Styles!!!! This match should be very entertaining!

Finn Balor releases his demon king once more to face the long departed Sister Abigail, that we thought died during the Orton vs Bray feud. Soooo is Bray going to dress as Sister Abigail during the fight? I’m sure we’re going to have classic Bray triggers like lights flickering and projections on the ring, but what will really happen during this fight? I’m perplexed hereas this feud is really, really annoying at this point. My prediction: Demon King Finn Balor wins and finally puts this feud to rest.  This was my original prediction until I was reading the TLC article and saw that AJ Styles will now face Balor. I don’t know what to think of this but I heard a rumor that Bo Dallas (Bray’s Brother) was sick and that’s why he hasn’t appeard for 2 weeks. Very interesting, but my prediction stands with Balor! This will be an awesome match though… Club vs Club!

 

Asuka Debut Match vs Emma

20171006_TLC_AsukaEmma--357d1ee0af6f4a6e3c004ebe892d401a
“Asuka’s Gonna Kill You, Asuka’s Gonna Kill You!”

The Empress of Tomorrow Asuka was called up (finally) from NXT to make her debut on Raw’s TLC Pay Per View! Asuka, for anyone who hasn’t watched NXT was the longest reigning NXT champion period. That’s out of male, female and tag team competitors. She’s truly amazing to watch and her moves are solid, effective and most of aall believeable. She debuts to tke on Emma, which isn’t too bad of a choice, but I would prefer seeing her go head to head with Raw’s tp Women Talent. You know the crowd’s about to be chanting “Asuka’s Gonna Kill You” to Emma and I can’t wait! My prediction: Asuka is surely going to win this match quite easily, waking up the crowd and putting the women’s division on notice!

 

Cruiserweight Championship –  20171006_TLC_EnzoKalisto2_TEMP--db88b38dd09a74ee6ef632b1b6badd39 Champion Kalisto is set to take on Enzo in the rematch for the crusierweight title. I think this will be a great match and will invovle more then the 2 men in the ring. This past RAW, we learned that Enzo had his own little posse which goes pretty well with his character. My prediction: Enzo will win.

The Shield vs Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Braun & Kane

20171020_TLC_UPDATED_5on3--22baa74404eb0f9b457a8af53a63f06f
Get well soon Roman!

The main event and the match that I’m literally tuning in for is to see the reunited Shield versus an insormountable cast of Superstars. If Braun Strowman wasn’t enough, throwing in the devil’s favorite demon Kane is enough to make me lose it! Say what you wnat about why the Shield was brought back together, you know we are going to get a great show! And I guess it’s better than watching Brock Lesner NOT lose the Universal Title each event. This is the only Tables, Ladders and Chairs match which lessens the handicap on the Shield. My prediction: The Shield will win of course by pinfall and if they lose, I’m RIOTING!  I’d wager 3 people being put through tables for this match. This was another original prediction until the news broke that Kurt angle will be replacing Roman Reigns in the match. I’m not quite sure why, but oh well. The match should still be good I guess. My prediction stands with the Shield (well Dean and Seth) winning the match. 

 

Those are my predictions for the TLC match this week! Who do you think will come out on top? Which matches are you looking forward to? Let’s Talk WWE!

Updates!

Happy Friday Players and Novas!  I hope everything is going well! Today’s post will be a short update on what’s going on with myself and the blog! It’s the Burger of The Day post, if you will lol.

Vacation: Firstly, I’m on vacation lol. I’m currently typing to your from my friends living room (because she’s still asleep) in Illinois. Now I’m a Floridian so being in Illinois when it’s pretty cold to me is crazy. But hey, I promised her that I would visit to go to Six Flags and Fright Night with her (doing that tomorrow). I’m a little skeptical because I am used to the high end Halloween Horror Nights and Howl O Scream events, but I’m sure I’ll have fun either way (If I don’t freeze to death lol).

Patreon: I know I mentioned starting a Patreon account in the Bloggers Thoughts: From Players to Professionals post last week. Well that dream is a reality now. The Patreon Page is live and you can help support the blog if you wanted by clicking here. Also, if you have any ideas for the page I’m happy to hear them!

Upgrades: Does the site look different to you? We received our first sponsored post a few days ago. With the earnings, I upgraded the blog to Premium and now we have access to better themes. It’s a work in progress but I’m upgrading the look and feel of the site (it looks wayyyy better on mobile now). How does the new theme look?

NaNoWriMo – The outline is complete for my story that I’m going to be working on during National November Writer’s Month (NaNoWriMo) and I’m debating on posting snippets of the story here during the month of November. Let me know if that would be a good idea. I’m writing the story of a journal from medievel times, following the life of a royal court and a Princess. The journal’s going to be written from different perspectives as it winds up in a few different character’s possession.

Upcoming Posts: This coming week we will have posts coming out that I have been working hard on.
