The Main Events
The Shield defeated The Uso's in tag team action. This was a stellar match and one that showed me why I care about the tag division. There was NO WAY that The Shield would lose. I loved the pacing and the excitement that came in the match. Jimmy and Jey flew all over the ring, connected with multiple tag team moves and really sold the fact that they could possibly beat Rollins and Reigns. Rollins hits his finisher and sets up an Uso for a GTS. Instead, he drops him from his shoulders and Roman Reigns meets him with a devastating spear for the win. The Shield never disappoint. Excellent match and the best one of the night. To top it off, Punk's promo after the match was solid. He sold the match and the fight on Sunday as best as he could.
I Feel Bad For Jimmy and Jey Uso
These guys have won me over. I was skeptical of their talents in the ring a few months ago and really questioned why the WWE kept giving them multiple opportunities. I opened my eyes and mind and have seen them compete almost as good as any tag team in the past 5 years. Why do I feel bad? Because Rybaxel and Show/Mysterio are taking a spot at WWE TLC that should be reserved for them. WWE is obsessed with the big name guys teaming up. Do we really care about Big Show and Mysterio? Does anyone really take Curtis Axel and Ryback seriously? They are getting screwed out of a match and a payday.
Daniel Bryan Gets the better of The Wyatt's. Daniel Bryan faced Erick Rowan to start the night. He picks up the win and tries to escape. He is successful when he runs underneath a clothesline from Harper and hits a running knee on the sitting duck known as Bray Wyatt. Wyatt's cut a promo later in the night, as Bray sings a song from his childhood. There has not been one instance, promo wise, that I thought Bray was off. He continues to get better and better. It was a creepy and entertaining feeling.
-Randy Orton and John Cena Get Prepared for WWE TLC
-Cena cuts a great promo, similar to Raw. Orton ends the night apologizing to Triple H about what happened on Raw. Triple H accepts his apology just this one time. Orton then asks Triple H about The Authority standing with Cena to end Raw. Triple H says they know who they are backing. This ends Smackdown. There is not much more to do tonight, so I actually felt that both guys did their due diligence to put the final touches on their championship match on Sunday.
