WWE TLC 2018 (7 p.m. ET start)

Lots of damn matches for a show that the Network schedule only sets aside 3.5 hours for.



There's some stuff I want to see and a lot that I don't care about. I'll tune in at least for background noise once I'm done watching football.

Has the potential to be very good if the good matches go long and the bad ones short.

Looking forward to 2, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 11.

A guitar above the ring?

It looks like Ambrose/Seth and Bryan/AJ end in ****ery.

Looks like an overall intriguing enough show. 0% chance I make it to the end though as I'm already tired af.

Exactly this, and I'm optimistic that they'll do the right thing in that regard. Expecting some quick squashes/sprint matches which diversifies things a bit.

Becky's promo indicated the women's triple threat is main eventing which is pretty cool.

7 p.m. start was noted in the thread title IMO. Obviously I don't acknowledge the pre-show as being something that exists.

Re: WWE TLC 2018 (7 p.m. ET start)

The cruiser match on the pre-show was pretty good, as expected, with a more lively crowd than usual. Then Lashley/Elias came on and I did other stuff instead of looking at it, so not sure who won.

Elias won and was then beaten like a government mule with a guitar.

A shame they put the cruisers on the preshow. They've been delivering quite well in ppvs.

Wait a second. Waittttt a second WWE.

Apparently the "Fabulous Truth" won the Mixed Match Challenge? And that means that R TRUTH and CARMELLA have each landed the 30th slot in the royal rumble next month?

Why the **** would WWE bury the rumble like that?

The season of MMC was cursed with a ton of injuries and then Asuka got pushed into the title match tonight. It was def. not what they envisioned when they added the stip.

No one watched it anyway so they can just be like nah not happening. Carmella maybe will be 30th, Truth never in a million years. It isn't like they can't move these things about.

I don't understand why Braun didn't lose by count out. I don't understand why Braun is telling Corbin the rules when he's GM so can make them up as he wants.

Duke "The Dumpster" Droese also once won the 30th spot in a Rumble.

That neckbreaker moonsault thing is so great.

Good little segment that, I wonder what they'll do with Corbin now.

It was the right thing to do but also underscored how geeky and bad all of Raw's babyfaces are, just seeing them all out there at once.

Glad they're bothering to build up to non-title women's matches on these PPVs. Awfully difficult to have a good women's division when you're just using hotshotting to set up the title matches.

...did Michael Cole just acknowledge women not in the match as being "eliminated" because they were put through tables?

Yeah I saw some people complain that this wasn't on the pre-show, but I'm glad they got this spot. Especially since whoever wins is likely to face Ronda next.

I'm not sure that bad matches do all that much to help the women's division. Natalya winning just buries Riott who is actually good, Natalya won't go on to do anything and if she does it'll be boring.

The #30 spot in the GOAT Rumble was the Warlord.
