WWE Tables, Ladders, and Chairs 2011 live from Baltimore, MD
WWE U.S. Championship: Dolph Zigger (C) w/ Vickie Guerrero vs. Zack Ryder
They have to give Ryder the title tonight. Then again, they should've last month. Ziggler's rocking shiny new blue speedo tights. I guess wearing speedos is part of WWE main eventer dress code. Unless you're John Cena. We already have a trending graphic on the side of the screen for #TLC. Ryder hit Ziggler with a nice flying senton on the outside. Ziggler later faceplants him on the apron. That looked like it hurt. Vickie Guerrero looks great as usual. Yeah, I said it. Crowd is pretty hot tonight.
Why does Ziggler have #HEEL on his tights? Why not have "#FAKESportsEntertainment" in the middle of the ring? Maybe I'm too old and overthinking this. At age 22. Michael Cole is bashing the Ryder Revolution. Jerry "The King" Lawler calls cole unentertaining. That's a shoot. Cole actually has a funny line saying Ryder became WWE Internet Champion in an imaginary tournament taking place in the backyard of his mom's house in Long Island. #LOL
Guerrero is sent backstage by the ref. Some good nearfalls the crowd is buying. Holy crap. Ryder hits a frankensteiner/hurricarana from the top on Ziggler out of no where. I didn't know he could even do that. Ryder misses the Ruff Ryder leg lariat. Ziggler gets the nearfall in a roll-up, while grabbing the tights. The crowd is for Ryder. Ryder hits the Ruff Ryder. His dad is shown in the crowd nuts. Now if only this poor guy got the belt in his home state last month in MSG. Ryder hugs his dad and Big O. He poses for the belt with tears in his eyes. Whether you like the guy or not, this is a very cool moment for a wrestler with a self-made following, who's worked his ass off. Congratulations, Broski. He screams FINALLY! I agree.
Winner and NEW U.S. Champion: Zack Ryder via pinfall.
Booker T is shown getting attacked backstage by IC Champ Cody Rhodes after warming up with Alicia Fox. Well, that match might be delayed until Royal Rumble.
WWE Tag Team Championship: Air Boom (C) vs. Epico and Primo Colon w/ Rosa Mendes
Surprisingly, Rosa Mendes' career isn't dead. A new gimmick and knowing how to shake your ass gets you far in life sometimes. This is an impromptu WWE Tag Title match. This is Air Boom's first title defense since Evan Bourne was suspended for using synthetic marijuana. They may lose this one because of it. Kofi Kingston won't be happy. Then again, is he never unhappy? Mendes shimmies her good on the outside. I'm not complaining. Amazing how Primo was buried on Superstars and now is revitalized. Good for him. He works a lot harder than his brother. No offense, Carlito.
