WWE TLC 2014 Results and Recap: Reigns Returns, Cena Wins

WWE Tables, Ladders, and 2014 will be remembered for the stunt show it was intended to me. The final special event of 2014 featured the return of Roman Reigns and the set up for what may be the most unexpected WrestleMania match of 2015.

Roman Reigns returned to the WWE after an extensive layoff due to injury. Reigns returned during the John Cena vs. Seth Rollins match to give Cena the win. J and J Security interfered constantly throughout the match. At one point the referee went down and between three referees the match was called a draw. The match continued and out came the Big Show. Show went for a choke slam in which at that point Reigns came out of the crowd. Reigns Superman punched Show and speared him through a table. Reigns Superman punched Rollins as well. Cena wound up hitting the Attitude Adjustment for the win.

Cena vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE world title was immediately announced for the Royal Rumble. I don’t think this was any surprise here. I liked the match a lot. I just don’t understand why J and J Security are even employed at this point with the Authority out of power. I also don’t understand why Show, who aligned with the Authority for his best interests, would continue to align with them when they are out of power? There wasn’t a whole lot of logic here if you ask me, but hey what do you expect these days?

In the main-event, Bray Wyatt defeated Dean Rollins in a TLC match. This was a heck of a match but by this point I had already seen enough gimmicks. Wyatt pinned Ambrose after hitting a Sister Abigail. Ambrose gave Wyatt several flying elbows off of subsequently higher ladders at one point in the match. If you didn’t see TLC I’d recommend starting off with this one because this would probably have come off as one of the best matches of the year to someone who didn’t sit through over two hours weapons by that point.

Why put Wyatt over? The buzz is that Wyatt is getting ready for the Undertaker at WrestleMania 31. You read that right! I’ll actually have a full blog on this tomorrow. As of now, the working idea is for Wyatt vs. Undertaker. With that in mind, there was no way you could have Ambrose go over Wyatt here. I am just starting to get aggravated at the way this company continues to do whatever they can to stifle guys who get over, in this case Ambrose. Ambrose should be getting a big push right now and the company needs to ride his momentum. Instead, they are doing everything they can to cut his legs off and that is disappointing.
