Edge & Christian open today’s show speaking about last Sunday’s TLC PPV.
Christian thought it was good that there was only one TLC match on the show, because if you have three or four of those matches on the same show the fans grow weary of it by the end of the night. Christian thought the show was pretty good but it didn’t ‘blow his socks off’.
Edge says that he just doesn’t get the fascination surrounding Asuka, but he thought Emma had a great showing on this night. Christian points out that when there’s that much hype surrounding a performer it becomes nearly impossible for the performer to live up to people’s expectations. Nonetheless, he thought Asuka’s presentation and facial expressions were good.
Edge couldn’t comprehend how Asuka, Emma and that match’s Producer thought it was good idea to utilize an ankle lock in that match when Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle was making his long-awaited return to the ring in the main event later in the show. This is a sign to Edge that someone just doesn’t have a mind for the business.
Christian says he really enjoyed the Elias segments. Edge agrees and points out that Elias is a throwback to Honky Tonk Man and Jeff Jarrett in his ability to get heat through his music gimmick. Edge and Christian both agree that Alexa Bliss and Mickie James had a good match, and they add that Mickie James is a great babyface while Bliss is a really good heel.
