John: Welcome to the TJRWrestling WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs (TLC) preview. It’s the 10th year in a row where WWE is doing a TLC PPV and you can watch it on Sunday night on WWE Network. There are 12 matches announced, so I’m not going to say much here and just get straight to the matches. Joining me for the preview is Mike Holland.

Finals of Mixed Match Challenge: Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox vs. R-Truth and Carmella 

Mike: What to say about the Mixed Match Challenge? It’s been a perversely fascinating thing to observe along the way, but gee willikers this installment was a hot mess. The participants and teammates have been altered due to various states of disrepair so many times at this point that I’m not actually sure who was in it. What I am more than certain of is that this particular final just isn’t very exciting. The stipulation is that you’re looking at both #30 entrants in next month’s Royal Rumble, but it’s not like any of these folks are actually winning that. So it sort of becomes high stakes poker played with bottle caps.

It is in fact that stipulation which makes me think the Truth/Carmella tandem is winning here. I don’t have to tell you the hilarity that will ensue when R. Truth dances down to the ring as the last entrant in the Women’s Rumble, do I? Because what’s better than the continuation of an inane gimmick? It’s like those Saturday Night Live skits that started out relatively funny and then went on and on longer than humanly advisable. Buh bye.

Winners: R-Truth and Carmella (Or as I like to refer to them, CarTruth)

John: I am one of the seven people out there that watched every episode of Mixed Match Challenge because I reviewed it. By the end of the season, I asked myself several times why was I reviewing it? We always need content, so that’s why, but I got sick of the show and some of the bad comedy that existed. In the end, we get this match featuring two 1-3 teams that somehow made the finals because people on other teams are in other matches on TLC, so WWE decided to roll with the loser teams. I’ll go with Truth and Carmella to win just because I feel like it’s better for the face team to win.

Winners: R-Truth and Carmella

 

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

Mike: I admit to being slightly irritated when compiling this prediction list because it’s crystal clear a very solid match like this one will get dumped to the preshow to make room for big name filler that would be better off on one of the very lousy recent Raw shows. I also feel like the 205 Live matches would be received a heck of a lot better if anyone only watching the main roster shows knew anything about what was going on in them. It’s not like you have three hours to tell even a semblance of a serviceable story for build purposes, is it? Oh, you do? Well, then.

Murphy’s been gold for months, but this feels slightly like swimming backwards to me. I like me some Cedric Alexander as much as the next fella, but we’ve already seen this play out when Murphy ascended the mountain the first time and I’m in no rush to rehash. You get the sense that WWE just want Murphy to win without much fuss and know that Cedric will give him a solid match en route. From that perspective, it’s a win. Be thankful it’s here to remind you times aren’t all bad.

Winner (and STILL Cruiserweight Champion): Buddy Murphy

John: I watch 205 Live nearly every week, but not every single week because sometimes I get burned out on WWE. In the last month or two, I have barely paid attention to it, so I apologize for not having some deep analysis here. I know these guys are good workers and if they get time it will be one of the better matches of the show. I’ll go with Murphy to keep the title he won a few months ago.

Winner: Buddy Murphy

 

Tables Match: Natalya vs. Ruby Riott 

Mike: I actually really like this match, mainly because WWE has finally effectively found a feud for women who don’t have a title. The standard “toss ’em all in a ring and let a higher power sort ’em out” Vitamix slapdash booking takes a break in order to present us with a surprisingly personal feud wherein the leader of the Riott Squad has gone beyond tugging the heartstrings of the always game Natalya and ripped those suckers out, using the very real departure of Nattie’s dad The Anvil to make it much more realistic and evil. Well played. This is how you book B-level feuds.

It would make complete and utter sense to have Ruby win here. It would allow both her and her stable to gain some much-needed traction, and using the grizzled vet to put over the young upstart is a time honored tradition in wrestling. In order for that to occur here, though, you’d have to convince me that WWE is green lighting putting one of their more sympathetic talents through a table festooned with the visage of her recently deceased father. It isn’t that I can’t see this company doing that, actually, it just wouldn’t be shocking enough.

Winner: Natalya

John: The fact that this feud has a personal touch to it makes it more interesting than most of the matches on the show. Is it in bad taste to have Ruby mention Natalya’s late father Jim Neidhart? I don’t think so. Jim was a wrestler and if his own daughter is okay with it then who we are to tell them no? It’s going to get heat for Riott, which will make the fans react to the match more. If they had no storyline, fans would complain about that too. Natalya, as the more experienced wrestler of the two, is going to do to what she can to elevate Riott. I think Tables Matches are challenging because there are no pinfall or submission attempts and there are only so many near miss table spots that you can do. Riott should win the feud as the wrestler on the rise, but I think Natalya will win this match.

Winner: Natalya

 

Ladder Match With a Guitar Above the Ring: Elias vs. Bobby Lashley

Mike: Wait, what? It’s damned odd to me that this is the match they chose to employ the ladders in, and adding the guitar accompaniment really makes the Vintage! Vince Russo look complete. I look forward to the time when WWE markets the “Build Your Own” Vince Russo WCW Years playset where you too can sort through innumerable offensive gimmicks and ridiculous weaponry to create your own PPV multiple times throughout the same two and a half long hours. But I digress.

Employing strategy is hardly a failsafe in this biz, but I’d highly recommend grabbing the ladder as soon as the bell rings and beating your opponent into a beleaguered state ASAP. Then you can grab the guitar and inflict even more damage! Or play a tune, or wrestle it like a large pencil, or whatever the hell will happen in this bizarre deal. Rather than attempt to intuit further, I’ll just state what we know: 1) Lio Rush is unquestionably taking a big bump off a ladder. 2) Both the ladders AND the hanging guitar have more personality than Lashley. 3) Having “Fun” Elias lose a guitar match is criminal. Game, set, match.

Winner: Elias

John: What a waste of the Ladder Match stipulation. I guess WWE didn’t want Ambrose/Rollins or the Smackdown Tag Team Title match to have the Ladder Match stipulation because it might take the attention away from other matches. My interest in this feud is so low even though I admit that I like Elias more as a face than I thought I would. This feels like a good spot to give Elias the big win since Lashley is more established, so having Elias beat him would come across as a big deal for Elias. I could see Elias eventually becoming Intercontinental Champion early next year, so this can help get him on that path. I don’t expect a very good match here.

Winner: Elias

 

Chairs Match: Rey Mysterio vs. Randy Orton 

Mike: In what appears to have been decided on five minutes ago, Randy Orton will resume his quest to defeat all the legends in the world by taking on the recently returned Rey Mysterio in a chair battle. Considering that he emptied his toolbox to defeat fellow “legend” Jeff Hardy, we can only imagine the hijinx that will ensue when Randy faces off against the next set of venerable worthies in Chris Masters, Count Chocula, and the San Diego Chicken. But, hey, Rey’s back!

This match is a bit of a toss-up for me, because WWE has spent precious little time on it and we shouldn’t either. It seems the standard move of late is to bring back a name of the past and promptly crap all over it, so Mysterio is likely in big trouble. Coupled with the fact that the chair stipulation both perfectly allows Orton to embrace his over-hyped sadistic tendencies and dovetails quite exceptionally into some kind of hellacious RKO possibility, we begin to see the picture painted that Mysterio is nothing more than A-list cannon fodder. I’m always game to see Rey wrestle, and he’s provided some of the best matches I’ve seen live, but this won’t be one of them.

Winner: Randy Orton

John: It’s the match where steel chairs are legal, yet guys really won’t use them as much as you would expect. I always find it odd how chair shots to the head are banned, yet if they wedge a chair between the turnbuckle and toss a guy into it, that’s okay.

The feud has been decent with Orton being a scumbag heel that has attacked with the chair multiple times in the last month and Mysterio doing a good job of taking a beating. It’s pretty much the same thing the Orton feud with Jeff Hardy was. I’m going against the “look strong on TV, lose on PPV” theory here because Mysterio had the advantage on the last Smackdown. I just feel like Mysterio could use the big win and perhaps be the next challenger for the WWE Title. Even if Mysterio loses here, he’ll probably beat Orton on Smackdown and get to that title challenger level again.

Winner: Rey Mysterio

 

Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre 

Mike: If you didn’t believe the Drew McIntyre hype train had officially left the station and gone hurtling down the tracks, I’m betting you’re booking your tickets currently. Now that the inevitable (and obvious) kiss-off to Dolph Ziggler has occurred, Drew is free to roam the halls alone and do battle with anyone and anything he wants to until his assumed eventual coronation. Could there be a better time for him to encounter WWE’s fan favorite perennial punching bag, Finn Balor? No, no there couldn’t.

I could bemoan Balor’s booking in this space, but why bother? Some things are a veritable certainty in this current WWE and Balor’s recycling is a biggie. You could potentially see a Demon appearance in an attempt to shake things up here (assuming Balor is medically cleared to participate at all, natch), but that might even be worse. The Demon was incredibly interesting in NXT, and now it’s just more hot air blown in the wind tunnel. We are so far removed from this guy winning the Universal Title that it seems like an April Fool’s joke just typing it.

Winner: Drew McIntyre

John: I have been thinking about 2018 a lot in terms of getting ready for WWE Johnny Awards column in less than two weeks (cheap plug) and the name Finn Balor comes to mind the most in terms of who has been booked the worst on the main roster. I’m sure we can all come up with a list of our own, but when you think about how popular Balor is with the fans, you would think that WWE would give the people what they want, which is more of Balor in a featured role. Instead, Balor feels like the prototypical short guy that can’t seem to break through because Vinny Mac has some issue with his look. Balor should have at least held the Intercontinental Championship once this year. Instead, he never did. He might be in a worst place today than the start of the year, which is not good.

Drew McIntyre is booked very well and has only been beaten once on Raw since he started there in April. That loss came a few weeks ago against Dolph Ziggler thanks to an assist from Finn Balor. McIntyre already got his win back over Ziggler and with a win here, he’ll pay back Balor too. I expect this to be a dominant McIntyre win after about ten minutes or so. If Drew doesn’t win, that would surprise me.

Winner: Drew McIntyre

 

Smackdown Tag Team Championships: The Bar (Sheamus & Cesaro) (c) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E, Xavier Woods) vs. The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso)

Mike: Smackdown’s tag team division is so much better than Raw’s that they don’t even know what to do with all the good teams they have. That’s the mantra here. We’ve seen some version of multiple participants of this match facing each other for seemingly three straight years now, so saying this is a bit of a pick-’em is likely an understatement. It’s like an old familiar ex: you might be going over territory you’ve already covered, but there were some good times there. And it’s better than training your parakeet.

So who wins? I’m not sure it makes sense to take the titles off The Bar, as they’ve done a reasonable job and fortunately jettisoned the wrestling detritus that is The Big Show, but the setup here sort of screams title change and either challenging tandem is obviously more than capable of a run. New Day has plenty of artillery on their side with their previous dominant reign, but The Usos have quietly and largely remained on the sidelines of late so now might be the perfect opportunity for them to step up again. Having The Bar chase them to reignite their stellar feud of yore isn’t the worst idea for now.

Winners (and NEW Smackdown Tag Team Champions): The Usos

John: They are all great teams and the tag team division on Smackdown is fine. All three teams have held the titles this year. The Usos carried them into 2018, they dropped them to the Bludgeon Brothers, who lost them to New Day when Rowan needed arm surgery and then The Bar won the titles two months ago. If the Bludgeon Brothers are ready by the time WrestleMania gets here then I think all four of those teams could have a Ladder Match or do something cool.

This is a tough match to predict because I don’t think any result is going to upset people. If The Bar retains that’s fine because they could lose them at any time. When The New Day lost the titles it was due to a random Big Show heel turn (he’s already off television again), so New Day could get them back. The Usos haven’t held the titles since April, so maybe it’s time to put the gold back on them. I’m rolling with The Usos in this match just because they’ve built up some positive momentum and the crowd is behind them as much as ever.

Winners and New Smackdown Tag Team Champions: The Usos

 

Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match: Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin

(Note: If Strowman wins, he challenges Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at Royal Rumble. If Corbin wins, he is full-time GM of Raw.)

Mike: You can settle into one of two camps here. The first camp is comprised of folks who think that Baron Corbin has amazingly become an incredibly effective heel character by ruining Monday Night Raw every week as an element of his constable/GM/haberdasher/Baker Street Irregular character. The second camp is comprised of folks who think most of the car crashing unwatchability is unintentional and the amount of time spent on Baron Corbin and this plotline would be better used watering plants or gargling glass. Gosh, I love living in the second camp.

Strowman might not wrestle, as we know, but that actually doesn’t matter here for many reasons. There is literally no reason Braun couldn’t beat Corbin in ten seconds flat using one move or with some kind of surrogate if need be. This thing can’t drag on any longer because of the Rumble implications. Corbin is played out and the wings are full of potential replacements, from Kurt Angle to Alexa Bliss to David Arquette. We could go back to the computer sending Michael Cole emails and it would be more entertaining. That’s how far we’ve come. Any ending where Corbin wins is hideous. Nuff said.

Winner: Braun Strowman

John: I think this is simple. We all know Baron Corbin’s reign of terror on Raw needs to end, so he should lose this match. Since Strowman had elbow surgery to repair bone chips a few weeks ago, he’s likely not at 100%, but I think he’ll be healthy enough to swing a chair or two. Corbin can be in the ring thinking Strowman won’t show up, he will get the referee to count them out, Strowman shows up, doesn’t sell a single move and gets the win.

My prediction is Strowman wins in under three minutes. That’s also another reason why there are more matches than usual on this show because if this one goes really short, there are time for the others.

Winner: Braun Strowman

 

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

Mike: Nia Jax legitimately broke Becky Lynch’s FACE with a punch and hasn’t been able to translate a whit of that into anything resembling wrestling heat. Let’s just start with that, shall we? Any heat she has is due to the same heat she’s always had, namely being in the position she is due to her familial connections and not being close to ready for prime time when it comes to actual wrestling. Right or wrong, that’s where we are. And it’s truly starting to appear like we’re never going to get to a place where Jax gets out from under the pile of her own creation.

I can’t think of an alternate dimension in which a scenario exists in which Jax defeats Rousey. Ronda is straight fire right now and her date with Becky Lynch will be nuclear. That’s the bigger story that overshadows this small and dismal chapter. I’m sure we’ll be presented with the idea that Rousey is somehow an underdog here, which is ridiculous. This thing is over before it begins.

Winner (and STILL Raw Women’s Champion): Ronda Rousey

John: It’s another win for Ronda Rousey. I guess there’s a small possibility that she might lose, then win the Royal Rumble and faces Becky Lynch for the Smackdown Women’s Title at WrestleMania, but I doubt WWE moves her to Smackdown yet. Rousey will probably be on Raw until the Smackdown move to Fox in October 2019, so there’s a lot of time to plan that out.

Jax will dominate most of it, Rousey is getting pretty good at selling moves and Rousey will make the big comeback to win. I think with Tamina out there to support Jax, it will lead to the heels getting more heat for their offense, so it will allow the match to possibly go over ten minutes. I think something around 8-10 minutes is fine. Rousey wins with the armbar. Jax will be a threat to win the Royal Rumble since she won the battle royal at Evolution, but she won’t win the Rumble. That is for somebody else.

Winner: Ronda Rousey

 

Intercontinental Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose

Mike: I must confess I’m largely apathetic to this match by this point. I really felt like WWE obviously had something when they caved to the calls of the Dean Ambrose heel turn, but now that it’s happened it’s been much ado about very little I’m afraid. Ambrose doesn’t seem to have fully embraced what he’s now supposed to be, and his backstory on his motivation behind what he did just seems to be some nebulous wammer-jammer that adds up to not much. Crazy Face Ambrose was just as mercurial and obscure and way, way more entertaining.

That’s not to say that this match won’t be good, of course. These two know each other very well and tend to bring out the best in each other, and the fact that it’s a very personal feud works in their favor. I’m puzzled by the fact that WWE didn’t opt to use any of the weapons stipulations in this match. Wouldn’t it seem to be the perfect fit for them? Certainly more so than some of the other less critical encounters. We’ve seen these guys do the job quite well with objects before (including many times when the roles were reversed after The Architect’s own heel turn on the Shield), and it would have added some more sizzle.

You’re sort of left guessing that the Roman Reigns diagnosis put a lot of things into motion before the recipe was completed, and now we’ve got something only vaguely resembling dinner. Either guy could win here, but I think removing the belt from Rollins helps Ambrose potentially make some connections he has thus far missed and moves Seth into whatever the next big plan is for him. Should that road lead to Lesnar at WrestleMania (as rumored), this would be a necessary evil along the way.

Winner (and NEW Intercontinental Champion): Dean Ambrose

John: This will be one of the best matches of the night and maybe the best of them all. The intensity should be there from the start. I hope they wrestle at a fast pace. A stipulation may have helped, but I think the reason there isn’t one is because Ambrose is going to cheat to win. Whether that involves a title shot to the head, a steel chair or some other weapon, I feel like there must be some sort of cheap ending in this match.

Would anybody be sad if Rollins lost this title? I sure wouldn’t. I think it’s obvious that Rollins needs to move on from the IC Title picture that he has been a part of all year long. The Lesnar vs. Rollins match at WrestleMania should happen, so Rollins should lose the title here, win the Royal Rumble next month and earn that Universal Title match. If they decide to have Rollins earn the title shot without winning the Rumble that’s fine too, but I’d like to see him win the Rumble because he hasn’t done that in his career.

I expect this to be a fun match that goes 15-20 minutes, if not more. We know WWE likes booking Rollins in long matches and Ambrose has a lot of experience working with him from when Seth was the heel a few years ago.

Winner and New Intercontinental Champion: Dean Ambrose

 

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

Mike: Sometimes things work out for the best, even when it seems they don’t. When Daniel Bryan’s feud with The Miz continued to short-circuit at nearly every turn and culminated with Bryan’s decision to not attend WWE’s big event in Saudi Arabia, it signified to some that he might be buried in his own vegetable garden. Amazingly enough, though, Bryan’s very sudden and frankly surprising heel turn has opened up a brand new chapter for him, and it’s been stellar reading indeed. Who knew that hating Daniel Bryan was just as easy as loving him? All of his positive traits have been turned up to eleven, and therefore he’s gone from a viable crusader and proponent of the little guy to an insufferable and holier-than-thou asshat. It’s been a remarkable and refreshing transformation, and it underscores even further that Bryan’s character skill is on par with his well-documented wrestling ability. In short, there is tons and tons to love about it.

Styles had a great run with Smackdown’s big title, and there is little question he distinguished himself well. To expect this match to be amazing would be selling it short going in. Both guys are capable of a five star affair, and given the proper time that is just what will occur. I don’t see any chance or point to removing Daniel as champion right now, and as much as I am enthusiastic about AJ, making him grand poobah again is pointless at the moment. I think the only danger here is relying on a cheap DQ type finish, either with Bryan hitting a low blow and scoring the pin or blatantly doing it in front of the referee to preserve his gold when he’s on the ropes. The way WWE plays that ending will tell you a lot about whether this feud is continuing into the Rumble. It’s rather ingenious to take the very real enthusiasm about these two guys facing off in a wrestling classic and use it as kindling for Bryan heat when he deprives you of said classic. It might not feel right, but it so is.

Winner (and STILL WWE Champion): Daniel Bryan

John: This should be an outstanding match that hits the four star level like the other matches they have had recently. They are two of the best in-ring performers in WWE that will have the benefit of a better storyline going into this match. When they had face vs. face matches I enjoyed them, but it’s going to be better this time around with Bryan in the heel role.

Bryan is my pick to win because this feels like the kind of title reign where he’s going to hold the WWE Title until at WrestleMania. I mentioned Rey Mysterio as a possible opponent earlier, so that’s a match they could do at the Royal Rumble, for example. As for Styles, he can be in the Rumble match and his rumored WrestleMania opponent is Randy Orton. That makes a lot of sense since they have yet to have a feud on Smackdown even though they have been two of the top guys on the show for the last two years.

My prediction is not only for a Bryan win, but for it to be a submission win with Bryan working over AJ’s knee all match. Bryan will win with the heel hook submission on the leg of Styles since Bryan has been utilizing that as a finishing move.

 

Smackdown Women’s Championship TLC Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka 

Mike: Adding Asuka to this match in a roundabout way is pretty ingenious when you think about it, mainly because it presents additional avenues for the Becky Lynch title drop that most feel has to occur before she ostensibly wins the Royal Rumble and opts to challenge Ronda Rousey. Lynch is obviously the best thing on either roster right now and it’s therefore slightly dangerous to risk downgrading her with a big loss heading into the most important time of year. Fortunately for WWE, though, Lynch is boss enough to get away with such a daring attempt and having her lose here could actually help her heel character generate even more firepower for her showdown with RR. But which of her challengers do you choose?

Asuka winning here makes a lot of sense, both due to the fact that she deserves some kind of opportunity to redress previous wrongs done to her since her main roster callup many moons ago, and the idea that she can be chased by Flair on the blue side for what would be a very solid WM match. Charlotte plays the heel even when she’s a face, however, and having her steal the thunder out from under both Becky and Asuka represents a bit of a sure thing for WWE. She’s a solid worker to say the least, and though we’ve pretty much seen that move before, it still packs a punch and gives you a surprise moment before credits roll.

I’d also add that personally I’d love to see Charlotte “surprisingly” snatch the title away from Asuka after she does all the dirty work, and then have Becky Lynch assist her rival with putting one hell of a beatdown on the Empress of Tomorrow. Rousey can eventually intervene, and that sets up two big matches down the road while swerving Lynch’s disdain for Charlotte into a really tremendous wrestling moment. The idea that Lynch would sacrifice her own title to end Rousey coupled with Charlotte siding with her would be a main event done right for a change.

Winner (and NEW Smackdown Women’s Champion): Charlotte Flair

John: I think this will be awesome. They are incredible wrestlers that are ready to put on a memorable TLC match. I’ll be honest in saying that when the match was announced, my original pick was going to be Asuka to win because I thought she was added to the match because WWE wants to see what she can do as the champion. However, after Asuka stood tall over Lynch and Flair on the last Smackdown, my pick is Charlotte Flair to win her 8th title, which would be a WWE record.

Lynch losing the title shouldn’t upset her supporters because things are set up nicely for 2019. They should do Flair vs. Rousey in a Survivor Series rematch since both women are champions with no challengers since the other women will be in the Royal Rumble. I would assume Rousey goes over there. Lynch wins the Royal Rumble (Nia Jax is the second last woman in the match based on her history with Lynch) and the crowd loves it. Lynch says even though she has been Smackdown since day one of the brand split, she wants to face Ronda Rousey to prove she’s better than her, so that sets up Lynch vs. Rousey at WrestleMania.

The match should be well built with some memorable spots. We saw what Lynch and Flair could do in that Last Woman Standing match at Evolution, which was arguably the best women’s match on WWE’s main roster not just this year, but ever. Asuka is as good as anybody in WWE in the ring, so she’s going to hold her own. The crowd should be hot too, so there’s a lot to get excited about with this match.

If it was up to me, this would be the main event. They deserve it.

Winner and New Smackdown Women’s Champion: Charlotte Flair

 

BONUS TOPICS!

The Match I’m Looking Forward To The Most

Mike: Bryan/Styles. Two of the best workers on any planet.

John: Women’s TLC match just ahead of Bryan vs. Styles.

 

The Match I Care About The Least

Mike: Mixed Match Challenge Final. This is PPV worthy?

John: Elias vs. Lashley.

 

Longest Match

Mike: I’ll go with the women’s TLC match. Three entrants and adds to the history of it.

John: Daniel Bryan vs. AJ Styles.

 

Shortest Match

Mike: Jax/Rousey won’t be long, but I’ll go Corbin/Strowman for obvious reasons.

John: Strowman vs. Corbin.

 

Excitement Level on a Scale of 1-10 (1 being low, 10 being high)

Mike: I’m going with a 6. The TLC match, Bryan/Styles and Rollins/Ambrose should all be great. That said, there’s way too much filler for me and the weaponry matches aren’t really that exciting. Not enough here to get truly excited, but it should be better than average.

John: 7. There are enough good matches on here that I’m looking forward to (women’s TLC, Bryan vs. Styles, Rollins vs. Ambrose, Smackdown Tag Team Titles) to make me think this is going to be a fun show to watch.

 

Final Thoughts

John: That’s all for us. As you can see above, Mike and I agreed on a lot of the picks. It doesn’t mean we are going to be right on them all. I think it’s just a case of two guys watching WWE for decades, knowing how they like to book things going into PPVs and trying to figure out who makes the most sense as the winners of the matches.

I’ll be back with a review of TLC on TJRWrestling.net likely on Monday morning rather than a live review because my 11-2 LA Rams are playing on Sunday night. That’s important to me.
