WWE TLC 2013 Results

WWE TLC Kickoff Show

We kick off the Kickoff Show with the expert panel, which consists of Mick Foley (in a Santa Claus hat), Booker T, The Miz and of course, Josh Mathews. The guys run down many of the top matches for tonight’s show.

We shoot to the social media lounge with the lovely Renee Young. She talks about the history of the TLC matches. She sets up a poll, which asks the question: “What would hurt the most? Falling off a ladder, crashing through a table or getting hit with a steel chair?” You can vote on WWE’s Facebook page. She runs down some tweets further hyping tonight’s PPV.

As the guys on the expert panel continue to run down the matches for tonight, The Shield interupts them backstage. Dean Ambrose talks about how they’re going to beat up CM Punk tonight. Seth Rollins does as well, even mimicking The Rock with an “it doesn’t matter what you think!” line. Roman Reigns says a couple words, and back to Ambrose to close things out with a “believe in The Shield” line.

When we shoot back to the expert panel, Kofi Kingston comes out of nowhere and bitch-slaps The Miz. The two are separated by Mick Foley and Booker T as Kingston is on fire continuously saying “you wanna keep talking?!” The action stops there and we shoot live to the commentary table.

TLC Kickoff Show Match
– Fandango vs. Dolph Ziggler

Fandango and Summer Rae come out dancing and it’s time for our lone Kickoff Show match of the evening. Before Fandango even finishes his entrance we have our first bickering match between Michael Cole and JBL on commentary. Fandango “shushes” the audience once he gets in the ring. Before he can continue with his promo we get a loud “we want Ziggler” chant. Fandango talks trash about Texas line dancing until Dolph Ziggler’s music hits and out comes Ziggler.

The bell sounds and Ziggler gets straight to business with Fandango. Within seconds of the match beginning, we shoot to a mid-match commercial. When we return, Fandango has Ziggler in a rear chinlock. We get a shot of Summer Rae looking on from the floor. Ziggler back-suplexes Fandango to get out of the hold. We have ten minutes left on the pre-show clock as Ziggler does his ten-punch spot on Fandango in the corner.

Ziggler continues his beatdown on Fandango for another minute or two, and then out of nowhere, Summer Rae pops up on the apron and distracts Ziggler, allowing Fandango to push him off the top-rope. Fandango follows that up with his top-rope leg drop and that’s all she wrote, folks! 1-2-3. Fandango wins.

Winner: Fandango

We shoot back to the social media lounge where Renee Young reads some more tweets hyping up tonight’s WWE TLC pay-per-view show. She reveals the results to the poll question I mentioned earlier. The winner of the poll is falling off a lader with 78%. 13% crashing through a table and 9% getting hit with a chair.

After that, we go back to the expert panel where the guys discuss the poll result and the Kickoff Show match that just took place between Fandango and Dolph Ziggler. They talk about Summer Rae costing them the match. By the way, The Miz is no longer on the panel and the guys are now discussing the scuffle between Miz and Kingston. They do some final hype for the top matches at TLC tonight.

Following the video package, Josh Mathews asks Mick Foley and Booker T for their official predictions for the title unification match. Booker T picks Randy Orton. Mick Foley points out that this is Orton’s first ever TLC match.

As the guys continue to talk we get a shot of a limo pulling up. We see Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and finally VINCE MCMAHON come out of the limo. All three head into the arena as the Kickoff Show concludes on that note.

Our live coverage continues with the beginning of the WWE TLC pay-per-view show. For those interested in reading live PPV results throughout the evening, click ahead to page two below.

    What I think will happen.
    Unification Match = Orton
    IC Match = Big E will have to win this since he got the belt not long ago, although I do really like Sandow and think he could do good with it; maybe Sandow gets DQ’d so they can continue and elevate a good feud?
    Punk Vs Shield. = I see Punk probably winning this due to Bryan interfering or some crap.
    Bryan Vs Wyatts = I see the same happening maybe.
    Diva’s Title = Natalya could win it but I still see AJ defending it for some reason.
    Tag Team Titles = The match that I am looking forward to the most, I would love to see The Real Americans win this but Axel and Ryback may pull the upset, it might be able to give them both some credibility back if they have a good tag team reign.
    Ziggler Vs Fandango = Ziggler.

  • im curious

    Uhmm…Am I silly or there isn’t a TLC match at TLC?

    • edward

      cena and orton

      • Bad News Buzzard Follower

        no ladder or table match though. that tag title match would be a perfect ladder match

  • 9 year old boy

    Alright time to find a good website to stream it online BABY!

    • wrestlingfan

      VIPBox :)

      • Godzilla2J

        thanks bro

    • G.I.R.L.

      Are you or aren’t you watching it tonight?

  • Jeremy-County Roberts

    When the hell did big show and rey become a tag team? *sigh*

    • Bro88

      The second they realized Rey wasn’t ready to work a match solo and Big Show isnt a draw in the Main event.

      • brad

        Couldn’t have said it better myself.

      • Jeremy-County Roberts

        The match was not bad. I thought Rey put on a good show, unless it was Cody making him look good. Either way not a bad match. How about that train wreck miz/kofi match? Can someone explain why this was a good idea for a PPV match.

        • Bro88

          It wasnt but they needed filler, then the filler ran long and they rushed the end. ANd I would def say Rhodes carried him

        • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

          To be honest, Mysterio isn’t really THAT bad since his return, sure he isn’t as quality as he was when he was younger but regardless he can still move decent in my opinion.

        • William Martin

          are u kidding me, The Miz vs. Kofi match was great

    • CONSUELA

      yea but theyre not bad as one doe

    • Jeremy-County Roberts

      Am I just bored of wrestling or did that main event just suck? Was I the only one hearing Cena calling spots to Orton? Just a slow boring match. Took forever to do anything.

      • Gojira87

        agree 100% total snorefest

      • Aperture

        Super Cena vs. Randy Snoreton was very boring. I agree. I bet Cena will make up an excuse about why he lost tomorrow night. He will probably say his elbow was hurting.

      • Haters Gonna Hate

        Unfortunately you’re right. As usual, Cena was calling spots loudly in the ring so the audience could hear. You would think he’d figure that out, after all this time…

      • William Martin

        i heard that too

    • Bad News Buzzard Follower

      at the same time family guy brought back brian

  • lolwut

    there is more handicap matches than any sort of tlc match.

    • Bro88

      Thats because this is WWE Handicap Match ppv. They just forgot to change the name

  • 9 year old boy

    People please do not tweet me the spoilera because I’ll be watching it tomorrow :(

    • G.I.R.L.

      Why tomorrow?

      • Adam-Michael

        he has school in the morning and can’t stay up late

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    Predictions
    Orton def cena to become whatever there calling the title champion of champons i guess
    bige def sandow retains
    nattie def aj new champ
    rhodes and goldy def axelback rey show and the real aericans retain
    ziggler def fandango
    the wyatts def bryan
    punk def the shield
    truth and woods def tons of funk

    • Archimedes_Slim

      Very close.

      • Adam-Michael

        Let’s be honest other than the main event, every match had obvious finishes here… I like many others thought Cena was going to win, but I am glad I was wrong.

      • Bad News Buzzard Follower

        6-2 not bad i thought for sure nattie would win after ajs tirade

  • NXTNETWORK

    PREDICTIONS:
    ORTON
    BIGE
    NATALYA
    REAL AMERICANS
    FANDANGO
    BRYAN
    SHIELD
    TRUTH&WOODS!

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    vince McMahon is in the building

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    Tlc minus a tables match ladders match and chairs match and 1 tlc match between two men who have combined wrestled in 1 tlc match. whats the point of gimmick if you dont enforce it

  • Godzilla2J

    Shield vs Punk was good .

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    cm punk and the shield man true masters of their craft and yet so young. if wwe plays their card right the future is very bright. who else sees ambrose vs reighns in the near future

  • AJ1

    Well Reigns speared Ambrose as predicted

  • Bro88

    Little surprising that AJ won.

    • oppa

      Once people on the internet thought for sure AJ was going to lose, it was a lock that Vince would have her win.

      • Bro88

        Maybe but that would mean Vince puts stock into what the internet says and I doubt he cares that much.

        • Cujo999

          Either that or they don’t want to put the strap on Nattie and want to put it on a different Diva’s face.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            They’ll have her job out clean on RAW and lose the title. Calling it now.

          • raVen

            agree. classic wwe to do a title change in a rematch the night after the ppv

          • hkdubbs

            they should have emma from nxt pop up and win title from aj lol. her dance and gimmick=$$$ for wwe

          • Bro88

            Yeah that is a possibility. Though I hope she doesn’t drop it to the Bellas, which is the most likely due to WWE’s hard on for the twins and their relationships with two of the top guys.

  • insomniacreviewer

    Way to go 5 moves of doom super Cena for burying Sandow. Sandow went form MITB winner to jobbing to Big E Langston. :/

  • Bro88

    Big E winning isnt much of a surprise since they plan on pushing him pretty good next yr.

  • Bro88

    Ryballs and Saxel better not win the tag titles. Really hope Big Slow and Rey Injurio dont win it either. Real Americans or Rhodust ftw

  • CONSUELA

    the fact that the show is called tlc and theres only one tlc match and no other ladder/chair/tables match is preposterous! the tag title- ladder
    divas- table
    kofi/miz-chair
    and so on…

  • CONSUELA

    im surpirised they didnt give the title to nattie, with aj’s heat and all

  • CONSUELA

    that dolls segment needed some ron simmons

  • Hector

    Wow mr.clay dont shout or ur friends go out

  • Hector

    Hope kofi wins this one

  • Hector

    Say ucme if u think john will win say apex predator if u think randy will win

  • Godzilla2J

    This PPV is terrible so far only good matches were the tag and Punks match .

  • Anonymous123

    Well since reigns speared ambrose…..i can smell a face turn for him.

  • syn kara

    I want to see Curtis Axel get back to rematches against Big E and take on the new Sin Cara. How long has it been since Dean has defended his title ? I want to see him against the Real Americans in title matches. Cena and Orton haven’t faced off in 4 years so I think it will actually be really good in TLC setting. I’m hoping for a clean finish somehow, and I would root more for Orton to get the win, and I don’t want to see HHH or Big Show involved in the finish of the match but suspect that kind of nonsense will go down anyways. I want Orton for the straight win.

  • Rick Yuhnke

    The idea the fans will not follow Bryan is insane. They make him lose, kick him out of the main event, yet the fans cheer. It is the “WHAT?” created by Austin whenever Angle would speak. It still follows Angle. That is something this management must follow…Like give him the belt, a solid feud with Punk, Cesaro, make him the face of the WWE. No, let us bury him and see what happens…

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    listen to the crowd they want bryan so give them bryan

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    anybody wanna tlc picture. that moment the shield died. credit wwe memes fb page

    • 9 year old boy

      :(

    • Cujo999

      Man, The Shield got completely buried. I can’t believe that they had to go out there and job clean to CM Punk. What a joke! Even if the endgame is breaking up The Shield, which I don’t think the timing is right for, how is anybody supposed to take them seriously as even upper mid-card singles wrestlers when they drop a 3-1 handicap match cleanly to a main event caliber talent? What’s even stupider is that by jerking the curtain with this match and having Punk go over, you knew the Wyatt’s would beat Bryan because they wouldn’t bury both major heel factions.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Timing has to be now… They want that three-way dance at WMXXX.

        • Cujo999

          There’s still a lot more that can be done with The Shield. They are over enough that if they turned on HHH and Stephanie, they would be huge babyfaces, and The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family would be a great rivalry. After jobbing them cleanly to Punk, it will be quite a while before anybody can take them seriously as main eventers, which means even split up, they will be mid-carders.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Hey, I agree. I don’t want them to split. I just think they’re going that direction for WMXXX. Hope I’m wrong. I think they have plenty left in the tank as a stable.

      • Bryan

        How did they get buried when all 3 men were strong throughout the match as buried is not given any man a chance to shine but The Shield shined at TLC but the time is now before they get stale.

    • Archimedes_Slim

      I really hope they don’t split them up yet. The most interesting thing to happen outside of Daniel Bryan is the tease of The Shield Vs The Wyatts. I know they want to start giving Reigns a singles push, but he’s got his whole career for that. Shield/Wyatt (Shiatt) needs to happen.

      • Bad News Buzzard Follower

        we all want that match. have the shield lose to the wyatts and then split them

      • Bryan

        I think it’s time as we know how NWO wen’t out as they dragged that out and they wouldn’t end so I’d say The Shield is right to end before they got stale as they had a hell of year and all 3 continued to impress in the ring so I am happy they disband before they got stale and jobbed on Main Event or something and plus I have no doubt that all 3 men will at least be successful as Reigns is a main eventer and will be the first as I expect a big 2014 for Reigns, Ambrose is a potential main eventer but may spend time in the midcard first and Rollins has potential also but he may be midcarder longer but I can see in 5 or 6 years if he’s still with the company and the crowd get behind him then he has a chance.

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    finally a name i think most will like the wwe world heavyweight champion. just combine them thats what they should have done with the tag titles a few years back

    • Adam-Michael

      No it is stupid…. has everyone forgot what 1 of the W’s in WWE stand for?
      If you are going to call it by it’s full name it would be.
      the World Wrestling Entertainment World Heavyweight Champion…..
      It is a terrible name and stupid, they need to take away the word WORLD. and just call it WWE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.

  • G.I.R.L.

    So what the point of the fan “voting” for the new title name if it wasn’t gonna stick come PPV day? Lol

    • Bam Bam

      That’s what I was thinking. This is one of the many reasons why I haven’t downloaded the WWE App.

      • Rick Yuhnke

        They do not care what you think as long as you buy. Stop buying, they will start caring

        • Bam Bam

          I didn’t buy the PPV either. lol

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      I’m actually glad they chose not to stick with it. It sucked.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Omg blood on WWETV? What will the RTC think?! :-O

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    randy orton 12 time world champion winning 11 in a 6 year span

    • SOBI

      Out of these two
      HEEL Orton IS better than face Cena so its good.

      • Bad News Buzzard Follower

        john cena has won 11 titles in the same span

        • lala

          cena is 14 time world/wwe champion u numb nut

          • Bad News Buzzard Follower

            he won 11 in a 6 year span read jack @$$.

  • SOBI

    YAY!!!
    I’m happy that Cena didn’t win for once but sad that Orton did

    Bray Wyatt Stole was the Man of the Night IMO

    • Bro88

      it was a lose lose match

    • hkdubbs

      bray wyatt and his creepy spider walk…..nuff said

      • SOBI

        yes that was epic

  • Nightmare

    Randy done it. I really havent been into a match since taker vs punk as wm. That match was pretty good. Now the question is will they keep 2 belts or make a new single belt? Ahh vince didn’t want to UNIFY them together. Im sure keeping them seperate is the loop hole and thats why they did it at tlc. They’ll probally make a new one at wm.

    • Bad News Buzzard Follower

      if thers a new title they wasted alot of time and money on that new wwe belt for only 10 months of use

      • Bro88

        They’ll probably end up retiring the WHC belt, keep the new one and just rename it

        • Bad News Buzzard Follower

          thats what i think too. it be stupid to replace the new belt. but the whc is the better title

          • Bro88

            They may even split it up again before it becomes an issue, I mean they aren’t exactly batting a thousand with story continuity here

    • Rick Yuhnke

      I am not sure what to think about the titles. It comes down to this. Do they make titles for Raw and Smackdown? If they do that, ok, it works, if not, well, they have well over 100 performers going after 3 titles? Hum

      • Bro88

        Why would they make titles for Raw and Smackdown??? Thats what they just got rid of.

        • Rick Yuhnke

          Not really. The titles were defended on all shows, all events. The idea behind a true Raw and Smackdown title is for that title to only be on those shows and ppvs and only by wrestlers on those shows. Thinking about it, you are right, I am wrong. They need less belts because making those two would mean that there are more titles to bury. So, I am sorry :(

          • Bro88

            I just meant that the titles were originally specifically Raw or specifically Smackdown, the brand seperation ended so it was inevitable for them to get rid of 2 world titles. Why would they just restart what they just ended, they wouldnt plus having less titles makes holding them more prestigious.

      • G.I.R.L.

        There are only like 5 guys in the mainevent title picture and all 5 are featured on RAW & Smackdown. There is no longer a brand separation.

  • Gojira87

    sorry but all that build up for the Cena Orton match and I fell asleep Booooooooorrrrrrrring

  • SOBI

    Did anyone else notice No Jericho in the both the championships histories
    thats just unfair.

    • Bro88

      Cause they dont want to acknowledge his Unification of the titles. basically because it lessens the meaning of it now somewhat.

  • Only God Says YES!

    i am sooooo disappointed right now. the match imo was great by alot of standards but why orton? now its arguable that cena is better than orton and orton proved it. cant wait for raw now. well now i gotta find a new avatar…

  • Dale C Twigg

    God I hate Orton. He is one of the reasons I won’t watch the WWE product anymore. He is a poor Stone Cold knock off.
    The authority? Didn’t they do this crap and call it the Corporation some time ago? They need a new gimmick. WWE sucks.

    • G.I.R.L.

      I’m sure many of us preferred Orton over Cena.
      And WWE has always recycled material; it works because most of the modern gen didn’t watch wrestling that far back for them to notice.

      • Bushwald Sexyface

        Ah, common sense finally makes an appearance.

      • Dale C Twigg

        I prefer neither. I would rather see them push someone like Ziggler into the main event for a change. Should only be a few more days until Orton is busted for a wellness violation again.

  • edward

    yes orton won

  • I am the Greatest WWE Champion

    After the Royal Rumble, WWE should do a fan poll and see if the Universe wants to see them unifiy the United States and Intercontinental Championsips. I would do a fatal four way, with Dean, Big E, Kofi and Axel at Wrestlemania 30 in a unified match. Gold Dust and Cody are having the best tag team matches around, and I want to see them hold the belts through the next two PPV’s at least.

    • Adam-Michael

      Kofi and Axel?…. why?… of all the talented mid carders you want 2 of the most boring uninteresting characters in a fatal 4 way match of that magnitude?

  • MOON CENA

    Fuckinn BULLSHITT ..

  • Aperture

    Punk was the first card? Before Xavier Woods vs. Brodus? WTF!

    • Bro88

      They do that all the time so as to get the crowd hot at the start of the show. And the Clay match is meant to fit in as a filler/bathroom break match.

      • Aperture

        Still, they could of had Miz vs. Kofi.

        The best on the roster have the later match cards. That is how it has always been.

        • kthanxyousuck

          You just ignored what he said. It was a pretty dull card outside of maybe three matches. Punk was in the beginning to keep the crowd’s attention and get them excited. Had they would have started with Miz/Kofi, the crowd would have been dead the whole show.

        • Bro88

          Nah, look at Mania. For the past Idk how long the WHC match opened the card. Plus would Miz/Kofi have actually fired up the crowd considering it was a weaponless DQ match?

  • DuransD

    The Edge vs Flair TLC Match on Raw some years ago beats tonights match by a long shot. They even botched the end. The biggest spot of the match was botched. Why are these two main eventers? Bryan or Punk or Cesaro ANYONE would have torn the house in that match with that much at stake.

    • Adam-Michael

      THE TRUTH!

  • srujan

    Well done reigns spear to ambrose

  • Scott Kinnard

    Once again, Bryan, Punk, Goldy, and Cody were the stars of the PPV. Problem with the titles being unified is you know Cena and Orton will be passing it back and forth the next few years. Shamus, when he returns, Punk, and Bryan might get thrown into the title picture but it also gives 1 less championship match at PPVs especially Wrestlemania. I don’t like the potential idea of Vince, HHH, and Steph all as on air heels. Maybe Shane will come back since he recently resigned from his position.

  • kaneunmasked

    i wanted cena to win instead of that piece of sh*t. but i still hate cena.

  • scott

    Why is anyone disappointed in this PPV? Ot is TLC after all its not one of the 4 big names after all. Its a chump ppv. Disappointed by the end but at least no one had the titles taken away after 1 moment

    • Aperture

      You must be new to WWE and wrestling in general. Let me introduce myself. I am Aperture, but that doesn’t matter does it? You want to know why I am disappointed? I am disappointed because the match sucked and the whole card wasn’t hardcore at all. Why call it TLC if you aren’t going to have every match with that gimmick? The build up to the Cena and Orton match was ruined because they face each other all of the time. If it was Punk/Bryan vs Orton/Cena then I would be pumped. Overall the matches were crap besides Bryan vs. Wyatt Family. I wished Punk could have been a little bit more devilish with his win though. A lot of people are saying that Punk is the new Cena, but I disagree. He should have made them go against each other. That would have been a lot better for the match. Overall the ascension match was bland and boring.

      Now do you understand?

      • Adam-Michael

        Easy there Mr Portal. No need to introduce yourself like you are some kind of higher up.

  • captaindaddy72

    Man this is why wwe doesn’t listen 2 us (the IWC), we always complaining lol. Why do we even watch wwe just 2 complain lol?

    • Aperture

      No one will take somebody seriously if they talk like how you are doing now. If you bring up valid arguments and state your disapproval in a respectful manner then maybe they will take consideration.

      • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

        To be fair he has made a good point. We do all complain about the WWE and don’t really look at the positives.

    • raVen

      so you are happy with everything going on?

  • Johnson

    I can’t believe the US/IC titles are the last ones to be unified. You’d think they would have been unified by now.

  • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

    The only ones I got wrong were the kick off match and the tag team titles match. >:I So close though.

  • guest

    this one isnt as exciting when jericho wont it. Back then was waaaay better then todays garbage.

    WWE neglected Ryback, so Ryback purchased his own World title.

  • Godzilla2J

    This PPV was a huge let down Orton wins thats good but the Main Event was hard to watch that match was terrible Bryan / Punk had good matches thats every time they get in the ring the tag match was decent another PPV im happy I streamed instead of paying $50 for .

    • Adam-Michael

      Then in all fairness you have no right to complain if you didn’t pay for it, you watched it for free.

      • Godzilla2J

        I watched the whole PPV I have every right to complain about what I think about it now if I had bought the PPV it would have been a whole different story but I spent 3 hours watching TLC meaning I can state my opinion on the whole show .

        • Adam-Michael

          Yet you streamed it illigally and saw it for free. So you have no right to complain.

  • Merc_416

    that tlc match sucked ass. why do they always use handcuffs in ladder matches lol it’s so stupid we seen that before. And Cena didn’t even go through the table in the corner when Randy pushed him off the ladder ftw. Fail…

  • Jonesy27™

    Cena to win the Rumble… again :-(

  • butterpecs

    I prefer results, not the pointless commentary sprinkled throughout this article.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    So true..

    • Godzilla2J

      THE IWC will never be happy if Stone Cold stunned Cena on Raw tomorrow night the IWC would still somehow find a way to complain about it .

      • SOBI

        Haha yeah they are gonna say Cena didn’t sell the stunner well

        • Adam-Michael

          HE wouldn’t, he would get up and laugh it off moments later

    • hkdubbs

      so true!!! haha

  • Abhishek Sharma

    I Am really upsat with John cena. He has loss his wwe world Heavy Whate Champion Ship

    • Archimedes_Slim

      He lost a boat? Well it’s always in the last place you look.

  • Jack

    so the full name of the new champioship title is…World Wrestling Entertainment World Heavyweight Champion, why cant it just be one or the other or undisputed champion?

    • Adam-Michael

      Exactly or just drop the word WORLD the 2nd time around and just call it the WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

  • Sheen6

    Pretty bad Sandow/Cena was a better match than this main event. Orton with another cheap win. Also a bad sign when the divas have a better match than the main event. WWE is going to keep getting worse from now on.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Cheap win? How so exactly?

    • Randy James Crawford

      Randy Orton is a heel and you expect him to win fairly really, and it is a TLC everything is legal, which makes you an idiot,

  • Faktorek

    TLC without tables ladders and chairs (one TLC match does not count) is just BAD.
    Mizz vs Kofie could be a tables match easily. Brodus vs Truth could be a tables match. Tag team could be ladder match. Why did they chose to make them all boring?

  • Adam-Michael

    Put the WHC in the hall of fame. Keep the WWE title, just put the word HEAVYWEIGHT above the word CHAMPION.
    WWE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. Bam!
    Keep the side plate thing, that design is a cool concept and I look forward to seeing what future champions will have as their side plates.

  • Satishwarne708

    Wow this is how you end a solid year.Yes 2013 Ends with huge blast!It tells you a lot about a PPV when the divas title match was awesome.Reigns officially started the end of Shield.But still would love to see a Shield vs Wyatts feud.Cena and Orton’s best match ever.And Randy winning the”WWE World Heavy Weight Championship” opens up so many feuds leading up to WM next year!

    • John Laurinaitis

      As the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Former Interim General Manager of Raw and Smackdown, I say this ending is the right direction. #PeoplePower

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    No ‘Daniel Bryan’ chants in main event = epic fail.

  • Progressed_Now

    another average PPV, and funny how the Divas match was the match of the night, albeit average itself.

    THIS is what an Undisputed champion really looks like. THAT was an awesome night. tonight, zero fuucks were given.

      Did you watch the 4 way tag match?

      • Progressed_Now

        talking about singles matches

  • Tippy

    I am really worried that John Cena lost , because when he “loses” – he wins . This might mean 3-rd Royal Rumble win or the End of the streak

  • brad

    Yea man orton wins

  • hkdubbs

    did not think theyd give the strap to orton….cant stand either guy, and i am glad orton won…..just thought wwe would give it to cena
