TLC 2012

This event would turn out to be one of my favorites from 2012 as there were great moments throughout the night. From tag matches to the gimmick matches there was something for everyone here. Of course the match I was looking forward to the most was The Shield finally mixing it up in there. Also I knew the main event would be great because Ziggler was in there and Cena always delivers when he is in there with someone like Ziggler.

1.[TABLES MATCH]REY MYSTERIO & SIN CARA VS RHODES SCHOLARS-great opening match right here as two good tag teams go at it for a shot at the tag titles. Scholars remind me of old school classic heel teams and Rey & Cara are just excellent. This was a fun match with Rey and Cara starting strong using the table as a weapon. But the Scholars would fight back taking control working over Cara most of the time. The high flyers would try to come back from that but it would be that style of offense that would cost them. Sin Cara would attempt a springboard only to be shoved in the air out onto a table thus giving Rhodes Scholars the win. Also I love that the crowd was chanting "Cody's mustache".

2.[US TITLE]ANTONIO CESARO VS R TRUTH-this was a good match but in my opinion it was too short. This felt like a match we could have got on Smackdown or something. Still it was a competitive match with back and forth action. Truth of course was the quicker of the two delivering his signature moves but Cesaro still comes out on top with a more grounded attack.

3.[I-C TITLE]KOFI KINGSTON VS WADE BARRETT-next up is the I-C title match and both guys deliver here. Once again it is a bit shorter than I thought it should have been but it was good. This was a great back and forth affair with Kofi hitting all the high spots and Wade using his power to his advantage. These two work really well together and gave us a great match with Kofi winning the title.

Right here we get CM Punk and Paul Heyman up in their box cutting a great promo on the New York crowd and Ryback.

4.[TLC MATCH]THE SHEILD VS TEAM HELL NO & RYBACK-talk about a war and you will be talking about this match. This was an extremely entertaining and dramatic match. This was the match I was most looking forward to and I was right as this was an excellent match. I was surprised that this match was this soon into the event but still it was a great match. The Shield looked amazing in their first match sticking to the plan of many against one as they would isolate one opponent at a time. Ryback of course looked strong during his offensive moments as did Kane and Bryan was a "pitbull" as they called him. There were many high spots and crazy moments throughout the match. The double superplex off of the table, power bomb on the announcers table and Kane getting speared through the barricade and then getting buried never to be seen again. Of course Rollins took a huge fall that took him out of the match only for his teammates to get the win for the team moments later. I was happy that The Shield got the win here in what could easily be the best match f the night.

5.[DIVAS TITLE]EVE TORRES VS NAOMI-Naomi won the preshow Divas battle Royal to get the title shot here and like many other Divas matches it was short and nothing to special. Eve keeps the belt in a quick bonus match.

6.[WORLD TITLE CHAIR MATCH]BIG SHOW VS SHEAMUS-we get another good match up next which was the World title match in which chairs were legal. Sheamus looked good early on trying to take Show's legs out. Show would fight back and use his size advantage to overpower Sheamus at times. This was a high impact match that would see some good spots. I loved the KO shot Show landed and that huge chair was great. Show keeps the belt in another good match.

7.THE MIZ, ALBERTO DEL RIO, & BROOKLYN BRAWLER VS 3MB-this match happened as a bonus because of a 3MB guest appearance Miz TV segment earlier in the night. This was a good little match that didn't take much time. It was cool to see the Brooklyn Brawler back in action although a little slower. The action was good and Brawler was able to get the win with a Boston Crab.

8.[MITB LADDER MATCH]DOLPH ZIGGLER VS JOHN CENA-Ziggler's Money in the Bank contract was on the line here against Cena. I remember wanting Ziggler to win so bad even though I like Cena. Anyway this was a really good match and actually one of the best of the night. Cena always seems do bring his "A" game when he is in there with someone like Ziggler. This was a very physical affair as this ladder match was basically a TLC match with all kinds of weapons being used. Ziggler of course was excellent as always but even Cena surprised everyone hitting things like a Frankensteiner. This back and forth contest was great but it was the ending that everyone will most likely remember. AJ comes out to stop Vickie from getting involved in the match only to turn on Cena as he is going up the ladder by pushing it over. This allows Ziggler to climb to the top and win. Great ending.

This was a fun event that had a few great matches in it and good ones throughout the rest. In all honesty this is one of my favorites of 2012. The Shield match is one of the most fun matches I have ever watched with everyone. Then of course the drama and ending of the main event was excellent. I highly recommend this DVD to everyone, also we get an interview with Dolph as a special feature. I still don't get why the pre show Divas battle Royal was not added as a special feature.
