John Pollock & Wai Ting review WWE TLC 2011 featuring Daniel Bryan’s MITB cash-in, CM Punk vs. The Miz vs. Alberto Del Rio in a TLC match for the WWE Championship, and Triple H vs. Kevin Nash in a Sledgehammer Ladder match.
We discuss a strange time for the WWE as it attempts to capitalize on renewed audience interest following CM Punk’s pipebomb promo with the inexplicable booking of Kevin Nash in a main event role, WWE’s handling of Zack Ryder and his self-generated social media interest, a heel Michael Cole, Teddy Long’s poorly-aging backstage segments, Cody Rhodes & Booker T’s never-ending series of backstage attacks, Mark Henry’s championship reign and more.
Espresso Executive Producer David Porges joins us to discuss his selection before going through the Trivia Gauntlet.
