WWE TLC 2018: 5 things we learned from the pay-per-view
WWE’s Tables, Ladders, and Chairs pay-per-view were the last one of the year that had high expectations from the fans. The event saw a loaded card which consisted of the top superstars in the business today.
From the bottom to the top, many matches delivered while some fell flat on its face. What was evident was that the three big matches from SmackDown did better than the matches from Raw, and even the Cruiserweight Championship match had the potential to steal the show.
There were a total of two title changes on the show, and the road to WrestleMania has begun now. WWE saved the best for last as the women’s championship match to close out the show was a treat to watch. Sadly, the bout between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose did not deliver as it should have, but we have a new Intercontinental Champion nonetheless.
At the end of the night, there were a few takeaways from the show which can make an impact on the months to come. Take a look at the 5 things we learned from the final PPV of the year.
#5 The 205 Live Champions are extraordinary
Buddy Murphy defended his Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander in a rematch of their Super Show-Down bout to kick off the action on Sunday.
The match was nothing short of an A-grade performance from both the men which makes it seem like both are incapable of having a bad match.
Sadly, the match found itself on the kick-off show and had the potential to even make it to the last three matches of the night. The action was competitive, fast-paced, and high-flying, and demonstrated some of the best action these men can showcase in the ring.
Murphy retained his championship, but Cedric Alexander performed his heart out too and this shows how far the cruiserweight division has come since the creation of 205 Live.
If the men of the division keep putting on such performances, there is little doubt that they will be on the main card of pay-per-view events more often than not.
