No Punk at TLC? Damn :/. Will we even have a TLC match at TLC now?
I believe our anger for the current product stems from the idea that it has so much potential and it's not living up to it. The reason we keep watching is to one day see if it will reach that potential or a level near it. We don't necessarily want the Attitude Era to return, but we want the excitement and the crave to watch more and the need to see what happens next which the Attitude Era brought us.
The Shield losing their first match would also suck, though.
I hear you...D Bry eating the easy pin would be a "really?" moment, especially after the year he put together. The devotion he shows just doesn't warrant that treatment. However the e have once again booked into an unpredictable corner. I wouldn't be surprised if a swerve is in the cards. Something like Kane turning on Bryan, orton getting involved, the shield abandoning or gaining a member, or cm punk making an appearance.
The only way this match can end with a "clean" pin is if someone takes a monstrous bump. That someone could be D Bry, which would be much better booking than Bryan eating an easy pin.
