Though WWE's TV product might be in some of the worst shape it's been in literally decades, this year's TLC proved to be a surprisingly strong offering, even if its quality was undeniably diluted by a wildly bloated 12-match card.
Still, the vast majority of the most anticipated bouts delivered on their promise, while even a few matches nobody really cared about ended up among the night's better ones (even the Chairs match!).
The two headlining title bouts served up two of the strongest main roster matches all year, PPV or otherwise, and overall the show set the stage nicely for the Royal Rumble and the Road to WrestleMania.
The final PPV of the year often ends up pretty flat and anti-climactic as creative just goes through the motions, so it was nice to see some clear effort going into most of the matches.
Again it would've benefited from cutting three matches and being an hour shorter, but it handled its excesses better than these PPVs usually do...
