On the main event of TLC 2009 atm and I just have to chime in that this PPV is simply bad. I liked the vast majority of 2009. Much more than others, but I can't take this event. Only match two matches have given me any form of entertainment. Rest is so blatantly off that my mind is nearly blown. Sheamus & John Cena deserved a pay raise for having the only match to be deemed "good". (so far)

Am I the only one who didn't like DX v Jericho/Show? (I ain't calling them "JeriShow". I hate those cross-over names and that's one of the worst. "JeriShow"? Was that supposed to be clever? Shoot you in your face.)

I'm 10 minutes into it and I think it sucks so far. Jericho legit stood there waiting for Michaels to come by to take a weak ladder hit by Big Show falling over. This crowd is ATROCIOUS too. So dead.

WWE Tables, Ladders, & Chairs 2009


1) ECW Championship - Ladder Match
Christian(c) vs Shelton Benjamin ~ *


2) WWE Intercontinental Championship
John Morrison(c) vs Drew McIntyre ~ **1/4


3) WWE Women's Championship
Michelle McCool(c) vs Mickie James ~ DUD


4) WWE Championship - Tables Match
John Cena(c) vs Sheamus ~ ***


5) World Heavyweight Championship - Chairs Match
The Undertaker(c) vs Batista ~ *1/2


6) Randy Orton vs Kofi Kingston ~ *


7) WWE Unified Tag Team Championship - Tables, Ladders, & Chairs Match
Chris Jericho & Big Show(c) vs Shawn Michaels & Triple H ~ *3/4


Yikes.

~ Opener was trash. Christian is the man. Always will be. Especially during 2009. Shelton had already started to suck here and it showed. So many lame spots for the sake of spots. 5 minutes of this match took place outside of the ring for no reason whatsoever. Hated it. Glad Christian retained.

~ Decent to the point where I found Morrison vs McIntyre near above average range. Morrison didn't hit Starship Pain though. That certainly didn't help the match out. Solid enough neck work by Drew and Morrison's comeback gave me entertainment. It was only one of two matches from this show I got a kick out of seeing. Drew wins and beings his ride as IC Champ. oh how that feels like such a distant memory.

~ lol @ McTaker & Piggy James. moving on.

~ Alright, a GOOD match. Sheamus and Cena clobber each other for about 15 minutes. It's pretty entertaining. The moment the match started I began to commentate the bout like Dusty Rhodes. Screaming "clubberin" over and over again b/c it reminded me of that type of match he'd go nuts for. Good use of the gimmick and overall a good match that I still to this day enjoy. Finish was logical in letting Sheamus take the championship and not have Cena look bad in defeat against such a fresh face to the main event picture. Although it wouldn't have hurt Cena to do so either way. Still, I'll credit the company for some booking logic there. Sheamus winning the championship was such a moment for me.

~ UNDERTAKER VS BATISTA~! in a chairs match? FUCK. These never seem to work. No exception here. Completely blah with a laughable bad/illogical finish. Teddy Long doesn't like low blows in matches where people bash each other with chairs.

~ Seen one Orton match as the Viper seen them all. Seen on Kofi Kingston match seen then all. That's what you get here. Same ol same ol.

~ TLC match was BORING. With the men involved I expecting something fun. Especially from Show. Nothing. Stuff happens for about 20 minutes then Jericho dies and it ends. End of entire bad show. Ignagual TLC event was like a trainwreck. How 2010 managed to bounce back I'll never know.

Sheamus vs Morrison from TLC 2010 > everything on this show by a country mile + 3 of the oceans that cover this planet we live on. I'd recommend a pass.

Orton/Cesaro

This was a decent contest I though but not up to the standards of last week Ziggler/Sheamus match.I felt it was quite methodical at point and Orton in perticular looked like he was in slow motion , really didn't feel any zap or intensity in his offence. Some decent things in this match though such as a sick looking superplex and some smart limb worka from Cesaro using Orton's well know shoulder issues. Furthermore , I felt this added to Cesaro's angle with the Miz which I feel is getting a decent build for a US title match and its match I do want to see. Also felt the lack of a real finishing stretch hindered it as well. Still worth a watch. ***1/4

PTP/Uso's

Brad Maddox hops over the barricade to join Cole on commentary . Just your standard tag team affair , Titus's whistle brings the heat lol . Wish these two were more prevalent in the tag team scene since they can both bring different things to the division. *1/2

I think Cole forgot to announce next weeks main event as he was too concerned with Maddox.

A good explanation would be nice though. Seems to be useful for giving a show an overall score. I always have trouble with that as I'm just picking a random number pretty much. Not sure if I'm entirely correct, but either way I'd need an explanation and I may even start using it.
The CAL SCALE was something I came up with in order to rank the 2012 PPV's at the end of the year. I gave points to matches depending on how good they were. It was basic as hell, but did the job nicely. KoK has messed about with it so it's a little more advanced, and I've changed it as well for my current RR reviews. My version looks like this:

The Cal Scale

NO = -1 (a "NO" match is a match that I simply cannot bring myself around to watch. So if I can't watch it, it gets minus 1 fucking point)
DUD-* = 0
*1/4-** = 0.5
**1/4-**3/4 = 1
***-***1/4 = 2
***1/2 = 3
***3/4 = 4
**** = 5
****1/4 = 6
****1/2 = 7
****3/4 = 8
***** = 9
MOTY/GOAT = 2 (This one all depends on how you are using the scale. Ranking all the PPV's would likely see you giving a match the MOTY award, whereas me reviewing all the RR events would allow me to use the GOAT award for the greatest Rumble match of all time. Can only be used once)

An example of me using it:

1992 Royal Rumble - 13.5

The New Hart Foundation Vs The Orient Express - ***1/2 - 3
The Mountie Vs Rowdy Roddy Piper - 1/4* - 0
The Bushwhackers Vs The Beaverly Brothers - NO - -1
The Natural Disasters Vs The Legion of Doom - ** - 0.5
30 Man Royal Rumble Match - ***** GOAT (imo the greatest Rumble ever so it gets the 9 points for being 5 stars, then 2 points for being the GOAT Rumble match, as I'm doing a list of all the RR's) - 11

The CAL scale is beast. Cal, post your GOD DAMN 2002 Rumble review will you ? I'm fucking bored and I need to read a review that's not complete bullshit like everything on 411, Youtube, WWEDVDNEWS, and the like.

DA BROCKTAGON could be coming back to the WWE but apparently isn't going to work with Taker at Mania due to Brock's style being too PHYSICAL. I don't buy it whatsoever and It's either Taker or Rock for Brock at Mania. Would he have came back unless he was going to get a big time money match like that.

That opening Survivor Series BONUZ tag was actually pretty good. Loved how strong they made KIDD look, as he got TWO ELIMINATIONS. I'm in the middle of ** 3/4 - *** right now and I'm torn apart deciding. Leaning towards the lesser ratings here on this one.

2002 RR review posted .

Got THE STREAK Bluray through the post today, and the best of Raw & SD 2011 too since both are/were on offer on SV. Things like Cena/Rey, Christian/Del Rio and a few other things made me want it. Plus, £9.99 for 3 disc Bluray set? Bargain.
