The event did not have enough expectations but it was a good event. A little bit predictable in most of the cases, still, it was a good event. The main event; the TLC match between Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt was simply amazing! Let us talk about the matches in details.
Match 1 – Ladder Match for the WWE Intercontinental championship – Dolph Ziggler defeated WWE Intercontinental champion Luke Harper to become new champion – This was the first time these two athletes are going head to head in a pay per view event. The last time these two athletes faced each other for the title and where it changed hands was the pre week Monday Night Raw of Survivor Series. That match was really shocking, it was hardly expected that Ziggler was losing the title to Harper. We cannot say this match was that much shocking but got an excellent competition. Not only I would say it was an excellent competition, it was certainly one of the best of the night. Both performers performed really good, we already knew what Dolph Ziggler was capable of, Luke Harper showed his class as well in this match as he perfomed really good as well.
Match 2 – WWE Tag Team championship – The Usos defeated WWE Tag Team champions The Miz and Damien Mizdow by disqualification, The Miz and Damien Mizdow retains the championships – I would not say that it was the best match of the night but certainly it was really entertaining. This feud looks really interesting, mainly because of the Naomi angle that has been included in this feud. If this feud goes into the right direction, it can be a superb tag team feud, something that had not been seen in quite a long time. The way this feud is going right now, we think it would go on for a little long, and it should, it is really interesting so far and it would be quite exciting to know what happens next. It is a very good idea to allow this match to go to disqualification, not only it confirms the possibility of this feud to go for a while more, the way it went to disqualification makes things more exciting. We seriously hope to see the best outcome of the match.
Match 3 – Steel Stairs Match – The Big Show defeated Eric Rowan – Big Show and Eric Rowan faced each other at TLCS in the first ever Steel Stares match. This was the first one on one match for Eric Rowan in a pay per view event. Just like we said earlier, this event has been designed to push the young talents, but things were not same for this match, Eric Rowan got no push out of match, Big Show dominated throughout the match and he defeated Eric Rowan by keeping total domination. This guy is talented, his physic, performance and everything looks quite interesting. One thing we still do not know about him is how good he is on the mic. We do not say that crowning Big Show as the winner was a bad decision, it definitely was not, but the way Rowan lost the match was hideous. We did not have much idea about the rules of the Steel Stairs match. But it was nothing interesting or innovative. In this match, only steel steps were all around the ring where they could be used as weapon, the rules of victory were all same.
Match 4 – Tables Match – John Cena defeated Seth Rollins – The way they built up the storyline, it all indicated to one single thing, this match heading towards another Cena win. As far as we were concerned, Brock Lesnar was facing John Cena at the next pay per view event which is Royal Rumble. And in the promos cut by Seth Rollins he kept focusing on his pin fall count on John Cena at Survivor Series. It clearly indicated to one thing, Cena winning at the pay per view event. It seems quite interesting to think about how and when Seth Rollins would cash in his contract. It is already too late, if he wins the title he might go on to WrestleMania 31. The question is, is he ready to have such a huge match right now? The main event of the grandest stage of them all? Maybe they are planning something else, hope whatever they are planning goes good. About this match, it again presented John Cena as a Superman, it was more like a three on one handicap match where was able to beat all three men. Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble also fought along with John Cena actually sent Seth Rollins through the table twice. On the first time, the referee was out, and the next time, simply for the victory. After Cena took out all three men, Big Show came out after him. Then Roman Reigns returned to help out Cena and Cena defeated Seth Rollins by the little help from Roman Reigns. Promos have already been shown for the Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena at Royal Rumble 2015.
Match 5 – WWE United States championship – Rusev defeated Jack Swagger by submission to retain – This is the second time Rusev and Jack Swagger are feuding each other, matters of this feud are a little different in this occasion. First of all, the United States championship is on the line in this match, next is Rusev’s attack on Zeb Colter. The last time it was just a USA – Russia feud, this time, things are different. But this time they could not make things look much interesting when they had enough options in hand. They had to bring Swagger back to the frame since there were not enough suitable wrestlers who would have looked interesting for this feud. The way Rusev picked up the victory, things did not look interesting here either. Another Accolade, another submission victory for Rusev, things need to change, seriously.
Match 6 – WWE Divas championship – WWE Divas champion Nikki Bella defeated AJ Lee to retain – The current WWE Divas champion Nikki Bella defended her championship for the first time successfully. The Bella twins storyline angle is really quite confusing. We could not understand what happened to Brie Bella. Suddenly she started to act like a slave of Nikki Bella. This part of the feud was really confusing, we cannot understand they are trying to create. Maybe Bellas would face other at WrestleMania again, they might be planning for such a storyline. Even in this match, Brie Bella helped Nikki to earn a cheating victory on AJ Lee.
Match 7 – Chairs Match – Ryback defeated Kane – Before we talk about the result of this match, we would like to share some statistics. Do you know how many pay per view matches Kane won since WrestleMania 29? The answer is; Zero. He removed his mask, wore his mask back, then removed the mask again, but things did not change for him, he kept doing what he used to do, losing match by match, and we do not see enough chances of that thing to be changed. About Ryback, we are a little confused if he deserves all these spotlights he is having. We seriously doubt if he deserves to be on the main events. About this match, we would say, Kane performed better than Ryback, he kept creating chances for Ryback throughout the match. He was told to give Ryback all the spotlights and he rightfully did what he was told. We seriously doubt of WWE’s decision to give Ryback all the push he is having. We hope this feud does not continue after this event.
Main Event – Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match – Bray Wyatt defeated Dean Ambrose – And now, it is time to talk about the Tables, Ladders and Chairs match between Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt which was the main event of Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay per view event. Expectations were really high from this match, just like the previous match between the two. The last time when these two athletes clashed they could not fulfill the expectations of the fans. But this time, they presented one of the best matches of year. This time they are going to fought each other in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match, there might not be any scripted blood, but we knew what Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt were capable of and they did not disappoint us. What a match it was, simply awesome. It was all so exciting and fans could not take their eyes off of it for even a single moment. The victory earned by Bray Wyatt was quite dramatic as well.
