This Sunday, Roman Reigns got yet another chance to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, after falling short so many times before, as he faced Sheamus in a TLC Match. But that wasn’t the only potentially brutal match on the card, as tables, ladders, and chairs were thrown around with wild abandon, and the result was…a Pay Per View that wasn’t as bad as some might have feared. It wasn’t a show that blew anyone way, but it had some good matches, and one impressive development as the Pay Per View ended. One way or another, we could be looking at a whole new era getting underway in WWE. As always, we try to make these events a learning experience, so here’s everything we learned while watching TLC 2015.
10. The 12 Days Of A Horrible Parody
Look, we get it. You don’t want Sasha Banks to get cheers in her hometown of Boston. It’s understandable, she’s supposed to be a heel. Although to be fair, it would help a lot if you’d start letting the faces of WWE be half as entertaining as the heels. But what that means is giving the good guys better material, not deliberately (because that had to be intentional) giving the heels terrible stuff like, say, a poorly-written parody of “The 12 Days of Christmas”, so the crowd will boo. Anyone can write terrible material, WWE did it last Monday when they sent their alleged top face in the company out to the ring to repeat the words “Tater Tots” incessantly. But you’re ruining the entertainment value of the show by doing it.
