I almost never watch pre shows. Have watched maybe like two or three times. WeeLC is the only pre show stuff I remember.
Wyatt Family is finally getting good booking. Hope this continues. Orton shouldn't betray them soon. They should stay together for a year atleast imo.
I like more than half of TLC. Both women matches were lame but I liked Alexa winning. Wyatts vs Slater and Rhyno match wasn't great but Wyatt winning made up for it.
Miz vs Ziggler, Corbin vs Kalisto and Styles vs Ambrose was the best matches of the night. Miz is making the IC championship great again.

1) Shinsuke Nakamura vs Sami Zayn - Takeover Dallas
• Things that Raw is doing right:
- Zayn finally has a storyline for the first time since the brand split. Hopefully it ends with an award for him like US title.
- Jericho continues to be the best thing on the show every week. It will be a shame once he leaves for his band's tour next year.
- Strowman has been built as a real monster and whoever defeats him will get a big rub from it.
- New Day still get one of the biggest reactions from the crowd and deserve their tag team title record.
- Gallagher is getting featured more and is already a fan favorite even tho he is better off as a heel to me.
- Charlotte vs Sasha feud is one of the best feuds of the year.
- Graves on commentary is a saving grace.
• Things that Raw is doing wrong:
- So Rusev is the bad guy for defending his wife while good guy Enzo is a home wrecker. Babyfaces are nothing but jerks!
- Rollins as a face just doesn't do it for me. (Plus Triple H hasn't explain why he cost Rollins)
- Reigns doesn't need to be holding US title. Give it someone like Zayn or Jericho.
- Bayley vs Foxy storyline is just plain lazy. It feels like something out of Mean Girls.
- Neville has been the worst misused person since the brand split and can't even get a match these days.
- Owens has been booked so weak. Remember when he debuted and defeated Cena clean? That guy needs to come back.
- Saxton on commentary is not a saving.
What things on Smackdown do you think they are doing right and wrong?
• Predictions for Roadblock: End of the Line
- Swann retains Cruiserweight title over Kendrick and Perkins in a triple threat match
- Zayn vs Strowman ends in a draw because they go over the time limit
- Big Cass over Rusev
- Cesaro and Sheamus defeats New Day to become the new Raw tag team champions
- Sasha defeats Charlotte 2-1 in 30 minute ironwoman match for the Raw women's title
- Rollins over Jericho
- Owens retains Universial title over Reigns
What are your predictions?
Whats up HxD? Thoughts on TLC?
TOP WWE SUPERSTARS OF THE YEAR:
1. AJ STYLES-The face that ran the place in 2016 putting on phenomenal matches!
2. SAMOA JOE-2 Time NXT Champ that was the definition of a monster heel stayed in the main event scene for the entirety of 2016.
3. CHARLOTTE-Conquered the main roster women’s division perfecting her “queen” role once she kicked her hall of famer father Ric Flair to the proverbial curb.
4. SHINSUKE NAKAMURA-Arguably one of the best babyfaces in the wrestling industry with the coolest entrance/theme.
5. THE MIZ-The A-lister solidified his heel status with Maryse by his side and has made the Intercontinental Championship significant again in addition to trolling Daniel Bryan.
6. KEVIN OWENS-Slightly biased but the longest reigning Universal Champion KO puts on great matches with or without interference and happens to be a great trash-talker.
7. DEAN AMBROSE-Unexpectedly became the successful shield member in 2016 honing his addictive lunatic fringe gimmick.
8. ASUKA-The NXT women’s champion is STILL UNDEFEATED?!
9. SASHA BANKS-Despite multiple injuries, the BO$$ came back better than ever each time becoming a 3-time women’s champion through her feud with Queen Charlotte.
10. THE NEW DAY-On the road to an amazing record breaker for the tag titles, this trio has kept the audience and fans interested every step of the way.
11. CHRIS JERICHO-Since betraying AJ Styles earlier this year, Y2J has become one of the most popular superstars with a hilarious “list” and his bromance with KO being partial reason.
12. BECKY LYNCH-Started from the bottom of the food chain and to many developed into the best female wrestler on the main roster.
13. THE REVIVAL-Arguably the best and most vicious tag team in NXT history…
14. SETH ROLLINS-Back from his hiatus trying to reclaim the championship he never lost and while failing to do so the architect remains a significant player in the game.
15. BRAUN STROWMAN-The brand split has done wonders for some with this monster heel not being an exception as he has developed a pretty nice and convincing victory record.
16. JOHN CENA-Even becoming a part-timer, the original face that runs the place is still one of the most successful superstars ever and receives credit for his feud with Styles.
17. SAMI ZAYN-Despite creative seemingly overlooking this underdog, Zayn has put on great matches all year.
18. ROMAN REIGNS-With many frustrated due to Roman’s booking, the current U.S. champ has kept his relevance and is still one of the most polarizing superstars right now.
19. NIKKI BELLA-Returning from a neck injury, the stronger Bella sister has never looked better in the ring and surprisingly her babyface role is working.
20. GOLDBERG-He had an emotional return and crushed Lesnar (which is all I ever wanted).
