I didn’t really expect as many changed coming out of WWE TLC as there was. With the WWE pushing couple of their newer stars, I couldn’t be happier that Sheamus and Drew McIntyre are getting title runs at the end of the pay-per-view. With a Dead Man still walking, a Viper that struck with his venom, the ECW title not going anywhere in the Ladder match, and the Unified Tag Team titles changing hands, for the first time, to the “Heartbreak Kid” and to the self proclaimed “King of Kings.”
The Celtic Warrior Is Our New World Wrestling Entertainment Heavyweight Champion!
For me, probably the biggest surprise of the night was when I got news that Sheamus sent former WWE Champion John Cena through a table from the top rope, winning his first championship and his first WWE Championship last night at TLC.
[adinserter block=”1″]How excited am I? I am greatly excited that John Cena isn’t the WWE Champion. Yes, I was wrong in the prediction, because I didn’t think that McMahon and the WWE would pull the trigger so fast yet with Sheamus and giving him the WWE title. They have built him up as an unstoppable beast since putting him on Raw. Sheamus took out Jamie Noble, booted Gary “Stupid” Lawler (an inside joke at my apartment on Monday Nights), and an awesome built against former WWE Champion John Cena, up through this past Monday night, where he had a couple of video’s shown, for the world can see his destruction.s
Drew McIntyre -Your New Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion! YES!
Another surprise that came to me what receiving the news that Drew McIntyre won the Intercontinental Title from John Morrison after hitting him with the double arm DDT. I really didn’t have much of an opinion here, but I feel that it’s awesome that it seems like the WWE is really trying to put new people over with the titles. I do hope that McIntyre does receive a chance with a lengthy title run with the Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship to help put him over. Good job Drew McIntyre, for being in the right place at the right time. You get a gold star and the letter grade A+. YES!
Dead Man Walking Again As World Heavyweight Champion!
After a low blow and a chair shot, Batista did in fact defeat the Undertaker, but Friday Night Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long came out and restarted the match, saying that the chair shot was legal but the low blow was a illegal move, so the match restarted, a big boot from the champ to the challenger, and the Tombstone Piledriver and the three count, and the Undertaker walked out of TLC as our World Heavyweight Champion, still. In my opinion, Mother Nature will catch her child and bring him home. Undertaker is champion, but for how much longer?
Crank It Up and Break It Down with New Unified Tag Team Champions…
A sadden day for me to announced that Jeri-Show officially lost the Unified Tag Team Championships to D-Generation X. Something that I am surprised upon, that Shawn Michaels and Triple H now will be appearing every Friday Night on Smackdown, as our new Tag Team Champions.
Here’s the deal, I don’t like this because the “self proclaimed King of Kings” on Monday night said that the tag straps didn’t mean anything and the only thing that matters is DX walking out as winners. Triple H said that the titles didn’t mean anything! And they get the titles! This pisses me off! Greatly! Why in the hell does Triple H need to bury Chris Jericho? This is the second title that Jericho dropped to Triple H. This blows!
But to state what happened at the end, Jericho was on top of Big Show’s shoulders, trying to capture the titles and walk out as champs, and Michaels gave the Big Show some Sweet Chin Music, which propelled Jericho outside the ring, and Triple H grabbed a broken ladder at the base and HBK climbed up it, with his hometown crowd cheering in the background, and DX captured their first Tag Team titles, together, as HBK and HHH. Yeah! Not really.
[adinserter block=”2″]To wrap up this article about WWE Tables, Ladders, and Chairs, I am stunned and excited that the official theme song was “Bullet Soul” by Switchfoot off of their newest album, “Hello Hurricane.” I started to like Switchfoot with their newest album. Good stuff. But to conclude this WWE TLC Review, Recap, and Thoughts, this is Eric Darsie from Minnesota, RIP “Mr. Beverly Hills” Troy Vangsness, you’ll be missed, goodbye (in more ways than one)!
