Notes In Observance – WWE Smackdown 12/10/15: Go Home, You’re Drunk
“Notes In Observance” features random thoughts and analysis on recent television shows. Quick results can be found at the bottom of the post.
Go Home, You’re Drunk
– The Roman Reigns-WWE United States Champion Alberto Del Rio match exemplified all the recent overexposed stable warfare, with the one-on-one bout turning into an all-out brawl once the LON members dragged Del Rio out of the ring after he was Superman Punched. Not sure what this does to push the Sheamus-Reigns feud, but okay. Rusev got Superman Punched off the apron for his troubles. An eight-man tag match involving these guys would end the show. Sigh. Again?
– The Dolph Ziggler-Tyler Breeze match was again the latest of their matches, seemingly ad nauseum. Okay match where Ziggler won with the Superkick to Summer’s dismay. Trading victories isn’t doing much for us or telling much of a story.
– The WWE Tag Team Champions, The New Day cut a promo that argued their popularity and questioned where their endorsement deal was. They also complained again about defending against two other teams in a triple threat ladder match. The match that followed, The Lucha Dragons-Kofi Kingston/Xavier Woods was okay in terms of action and ended with Kalisto pinning Woods once Sin Cara took out Kingston/Big E on the outside. It appears The Lucha Dragons carry the momentum, but that probably just means New Day retains.
– The WWE Intercontinental Championship contract signing segment between Champion Kevin Owens and Ambrose had the twist of Owens bringing his attorney to represent him only to set-up an attack by Owens getting revenge for Raw. Owens threw his own attorney in the way of Ambrose to escape. Ambrose then Dirty Deeds’d the lawyer as Owens called foul on bullying. Um, okay. These two actually could’ve carried a great verbal segment, but we got that instead.
– The 2-On-1 Handicap match between Ryback and The Ascension with Rusev/Lana on commentary and it was announced (no shocker) that Rusev-Ryback would do battle at TLC. Boring squash. Post-match involved a stand-off between the three as Rusev walked away from Ryback, using Lana as a shield? Just why are they fighting exactly? Help us.
– The Becky Lynch-Paige match had advancement from WWE Divas Champion Charlotte distracting Paige to cost her the match and then entered the ring while Lynch was in the ring and… held up the Title? Okay, that was pointless and didn’t make us any more excited for the Paige-Charlotte TLC match.
– The eight-man elimination tag match between Reigns/Ambrose/Usos and LON was anticlimactic stuff that saw Reigns pin Rusev with help from his buddies. So now, Reigns has pinned Sheamus and Rusev from LON. Meh. More of a time killer than anything. Man, what a horrible build to TLC.
- Roman Reigns (w/Dean Ambrose/The Usos) and Alberto Del Rio (w/Sheamus, Rusev, King Barrett) to a no-contest
- Dolph Ziggler def. Tyler Breeze (w/Summer Rae) via pinfall
