Hot tag Brodus who gets an Adele splash (™ JBL) in the corner and it all breaks down. Stereo topes by Kidd and Gabriel followed by quebradas from the luchadors.

Meanwhile, Kaitlin gets jumped by Aksana but she thwarts it and I putting the kettle on.
WWE Divas Championship: Eve v Kaitlin.
I think it was Bill Simmons that said that if you have one name in WWE, more than likely you haven’t got much of a character.
I approve of Kaitlin’s pants. Been a good night for the auld female ring attire so far.
Eve wins with that Goldberg neckbreaker. Kaitlin had gotten a near fall off her fireman’s carry gut buster.
Winner and still champion: Eve
We get a segment in the back with Randy Orton looking on annoyed at the face team arguing. Randy to Foley: “I hate you.” KAYFABE.
United States Championship: Antonio Cesaro v R-Truth.
Cesaro believes that he is the only reason for the entire United States to be thankful this year.
Cesaro’s ring attire is preposterous. Few roll ups to start form Truth. Cole name drops Nikita Koloff and Kensuke Sasaki as non American US Champions. Cesaro gets some power offense and a double foot stomp for two. Karelin hold bearhug is our rest hold here. Michael Cole apparently thinks that the All Blacks are from South Africa as he watched “that Nelson Mandela movie”. Back suplex gets two. Truth back with a sunset flip but walks into an uppercut. Back to the bearhug. Truth fights out with some clotheslines and a leg lariat. He walks into a boot but gets a dropkick for two. Suplex stunner gets two as the fans had no fucking idea what that was. Ax Kick misses and Cesaro gets the BOLO UPPERCUT. Neutraliser, talk to you later.
WInner and still champion: Antonio Cesaro.
Is this the second year in a row with David Otunga doing the TLC promo?
Are we still doing Tout? Why have we not ruined this yet? Like a normal video with a subtle photo of some chick rimming another chick in the background.
Speaking of rimming, we get a fucking recap of last Monday’s AJ/Cena thing on the show I paid money for.
AJ comes out for an interview. FUUUCCCKKK YOU. Vickie is trying to make her life hell. AJ used to think it was because she was a vindictive witch but now she realizes that Vickie has a secret of her own. Vickie comes out to some heat. Ugh, AJ is showing stupid photoshopped pictures of Vickie with guys like Ricardo Rodriguez, Jim Ross and Brodus Clay. How short is the main event going to be? After my piss I came back to find Paul Heyman doing a promo. Twitter is making jokes about Tamina so I gather she jumped AJ.
World Heavyweight Championshp: Big Show v Sheamus
How can they follow last month’s awesome match? TOO MANY LIMES, TOO MANY LIMES WHOOOAAA.
Some brawling to start and Show ends up tied in the ropes. Sheamus gets the ten clubs to the chest from there and attacks to the outside. Back in and Sheamus goes up. He dives straight in to a spear though. To the outside and Show gets some power stuff with the stairs. Back in and the match slows way down. Are we going twenty minutes again? Sheamus gets a quick comeback but walks into a superkick. Huge elbow drop gets two for Big Show. Armbar rest hold and Sheamus immediately fights out of it but walks into a side slam this time. Show misses a blind charge and eats feet. Sleeper from Sheamus but Show throws him off. Sheamus gets some punches but Show sidesteps a charge and he eats post. Final Cut gets two for Show. Show goes for a Vader Bomb but Sheamus counters with a FUCKING ELECTRIC CHAIR! He held Big Show on his shoulders for like five seconds! And it looked safe! Slugfest is won by Sheamus as he gets the high knee in the corner. Some polish hammers sets up the Brogue Kick. Kick is blocked into the chokeslam, countered into White Noise for TWO! The fans are losing their minds as Sheamus sets up the next attempt at the kick. Show pulls the referee in the way though. The trainers and more referees come down to check on Armstrong. Sheamus LIKE AN IDIOT was checking on the referee and Big Show hits the punch for three.
Another referee reverses the decision due to Show pulling Armstrong into the kick. Show goes after the referee and Sheamus comes from behind and attacks Big Show with a chair.
Sheamus is putting a hurting on Show here to the point that the fans aren’t all with him anymore. Show is even begging not to be hit anymore. Sheamus finally hits the Brogue Kick in the aisle as Show was on his knees. What an asshole! So it looks like Sheamus taking on Show next month in a CHAIRS MATCH.
Winner and still not the champion: Sheamus via disqualification.
Fans chant “We want Ziggler” as Show crawls up the aisle but nope. We get a Rolling Stones commercial instead.
Team Ziggler (Alberto Del Rio, Damien Sandow, David Otunga, Wade Barrett and Dolph Ziggler) v Team Foley (Kane, Daniel Brian, Kofi Kingston, The Miz and Randy Orton)
The bump Cody Rhodes took to put him out of the match looked disgusting. Not sure who was at fault there or if it was a freak accident.
There is literally no stakes on the line here. Foley looks AWFUL coming down to the ring, all limping and shit. Daniel Brian’s NO coat is so great.
Otunga starts with Kofi. Kingston nearly hits the kick but Otunga bails. He follows with a plancha from the post though. Brian in to a giant reaction. Sloppy powerslam from Otunga who just gets the fuck out and tags Sandow. Russian legsweep and the ELBOW OF DISTAIN gets two. Slingblade clothesline from Brian followed with the corner dropkick.

Brian in with some uppercuts as they fuck something up off the ropes. Barrett in as JBL compares him to the king of the gypsies. Daniel misses the dropkick in the corner and takes the Psicosis bump. Outside and Barrett rams Brian into the apron. Otunga in and immediately gets tapped with the No Lock.

ADR reverses and gets a stiff kick. ADR hits the springboard kick in the corner and gets the armbar. Brian taps out clean.

Brian did not look very good there. I wonder if there’s an injury or something.

Heel miscommunication ends up with Randy hitting an RKO on Del Rio for three.
Ziggler and Orton are the last two left. Ziggler gets thrown to the post and just hangs out there not moving while Orton sets up the RKO. He misses and Ziggler gets the Zig – Zag for TWO. Great near fall! He misses the fameasser and Orton hits the draping DDT. Orton has a bloody lip from something there. Orton spazzes out and motions for the punt. He runs at Ziggler who hits a PERFECT super kick for the clean pin!
SOLE SURVIVOR: Dolph Ziggler.
Some hicks Tout about who they want Rock to face at Royal Rumble.

You’ll never catch John in the next man’s sweater.
