Title This: WWE TLC Reaction 12/16/12

Josh Isenberg

Big ShowEve defeated Naomi in a very quick and random Divas Championship match. Naomi shocked me with her ability to look like a pro. She was athletic and had a different flavor to her offense. She would ultimately get taken down and beaten by Eve, who really is stuck in a spot where she has no feud. Where is Kaitlyn?

Grade: C

The Big Show defeated Sheamus in a Chairs Match. For another month, Show retained the World Championship in brutal fashion. The match started out a little slow for my liking, even though we knew this would happen with two larger superstars. I loved when Sheamus was able to kick a chair in the face of The Big Show, but not enough to really knock out the champion. The action goes back and forth, with the chair being a critical part in the transition into moves. Big Show headed to the outside after Sheamus was down. After a Knockout Punch, Sheamus kicks out of the pinfall attempt. We get back to the slugfest, and Sheamus hits a White Noise onto Big Show through two set chairs. It took a supersized chair from the Big Show to finally knock out Sheamus. The chair was massive, and it was the perfect way for Show to win and still make Sheamus look strong and powerful.

I was in shock to see Show leave TLC with the championship. I have never been a huge fan of his, but I give congratulations to him for being able to put on three high quality matches with Sheamus and really be able to make each match a little different each time. Who does Show face now? That is my only concern for this.

The Miz, Alberto Del Rio, and The Brooklyn Brawler defeated 3MB

There is not too much to talk about this match. WWE is back in Brooklyn, so this was a nice little treat for the home crowd. I really think they were disappointed not to see Zack Ryder, but I was interested to see how the reaction Del Rio would get as a face. 3MB got a little bit of offense in, but it was all about Del Rio kicking out Drew. Anyways, this match was exactly what it was, and an easy transition into the main event.

Grade: C+
