TLC 2017
« on: October 22, 2017, 12:43:10 AM »
So, i hit up Bleacher Report out of boredom, and come to find Kurt Angle's replacing Roman Reigns for the big match.
AJ's replacing Wyatt to fight Finn Balor.

Reigns & Wyatt are supposedly sick? Along with Wyatt's brother Bo Dallas and  gf JoJo.
WTF?

Ah well, that totally kills the Shield reunion. Kills. It.

Balor/Styles is cool though.

Wyatt and Roman are both garbage. I don’t wish meningitis on anyone, but this card is radically improved by subtracting those two mops. Still, the main event makes NO sense now.

Is it meningitis? Ouch.

But yeah, like Reigns or not, the match is retarded now, and the most anticipated reunion in years us derailed up the ass.
Reigns just shot himself in the foot again, like he did with his hernia surgery and drug suspension.
Seems every time he might get back in with the fans he fucks/gets fucked up somehow.
This time he took Rollins & Ambrose with him.

Kurt Angle could come out in a wheelchair and still put on a better match than 70% of the roster
The tree grows high but the oxygen fails to reach all the branches.

Weren’t his last few years in TNA pretty dreadful? I didn’t really watch, but I have heard he was mediocre in that time.

And WWE’s problem these days isn’t usually match quality. The roster as a whole is probably as good innring as it has ever been.

Yeah, the in-ring talent is probably better than ever, generally speaking. My comment was based more on me being an Angle mark.

Nearly every match I ever saw of his in TNA was good to great, although I admit that I went into one of my wrestling lulls around the time of their transition from Nu-WCW to pushing their own new talent again (pre EC3). So I don't really know if Kurt got worse or not. But he had several 5*+ matches in TNA with guys like AJ and Joe, and I don't really ever remember him phoning it in against anybody

Man, Daniel Bryan sucks at his job. He let John Cena go to free agency, just let several wrestles like Jordan and Kane go to RAW for no real reason, and now he's lending out wrestlers.

Also...how much bullcrap is it that Daniel Bryan has been cleared by every doctor but the WWE one...and Kurt Angle, an addict with several injuries, gets to comeback on short notice? :)

Looks like there was only 1 match i would have really enjoyed watching, Balor/Styles.

Actully pretty good all thing considering

great last match and great ending

sure Kurt had to be carried a bit and it went on a bit long..but had some mark out moments..and set up for some great storylines

The main event was fucking weird with the overbooking. Now we are going to get a Kane rehab program for Braun? The road there made no sense. Kane hit Braun with a chair, they faced off but worked together again for, like, 8 more minutes, and then Kane attacked Braun with no further impetus when the bad guys were in control? Ugh. Okay. Is Braun officially a babyface now?

And the sound effects on the garbage truck were glorious.

Styles/Balor delivered, though. Can't argue there.
