The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

WWE TLC Results:

The last WWE pay-per-view of 2019 was on Sunday night and it was a banger. It had some absolute highs, and some strange lows, but overall WWE knocked it’s last pay-per-view of the 10’s out of the park. We’ll break it down further below, but here are the results:

  • Humberto Carillo def. Andrade
  • New Day (c) def. The Revival in a ladder match to retain the SmackDown Tag Team Championships
  • Viking Raiders versus The O.C. goes to a double countout in a Raw Tag Team Championship match
  • King Corbin def. Roman Reigns in a TLC match
  • Bray Wyatt def. The Miz
  • Bobby Lashley def. Rusev in a tables match
  • Kabuki Warriors def. Becky Lynch

TLC Takeaways:

New Day and Revival came to play in our opener. These four men tore the house down in a match that had a ton of creative spots. SmackDown needs to establish more teams to flesh out their tag division, but they will always be in good hands with these two squads. Also, Kofi Kingston always gets praise for his creative Royal Rumble spots. He showed he can have great spots in other gimmick matches at TLC.

TLC also featured the return of the American Dragon version of Daniel Bryan. Bray Wyatt wrestled as his Firefly Funhouse persona against the Miz, and was dominated early on. Eventually Wyatt would turn it on and get the W. Afterwards, he was going to destroy Miz with his cartoonish mallet because The Fiend on the titantron told him too. That led to the lights starting to go out, and Daniel Bryan re-emerged. Wyatt-Bryan seems to be the direction heading into the Royal Rumble, and it’s going to be incredible.

Roman Reigns versus Baron Corbin was a disappointment. That’s all there is to say about this. It took eight men to beat Reigns. Please end this, WWE.

The main event was a collection of chaos. It was disjointed at points, but it was a fun main event in spite of the lack of order. While it wasn’t the best technical match you’ll ever see, it was an entertaining wreck.

NWA Into The Fire: Marty Scurll Debuts

The biggest surprise of the weekend was on Saturday evening, when Marty Scurll debuted at NWA Into The Fire. After Nick Aldis retained the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, he was confronted by old friend Scurll to end the broadcast. Scurll just finished up with Ring of Honor, and has been predicted to be AEW bound. While that remains to be seen, he will definitely be working NWA for the next little bit and has his sights set on the NWA Championship.

NWA is also bringing back the NWA Television Championship. Exciting stuff!

Full results from Into The Fire are here:

  • Eli Drake def. Ken Anderson
  • Thunder Rosa def. Tasha Steelz
  • The Question Mark def. Trevor Murdoch
  • Rock ‘N’ Roll Express (c) def. The Wildcards to retain the NWA Tag Team Championships
  • Allysin Kay & ODB def. Melina & Marti Belle
  • Aron Stevens def. Colt Cabana (c) and Ricky Starks to win the NWA National Championship
  • Nick Aldis (c) def. James Storm 2-1 in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match to retain the NWA World Heavyweight Championship

Match of the Decade Tournament

Our WWE Match of the Decade Tournament kicked off yesterday with the first round NXT matches. The WWE first round will come later today, so keep your eyes peeled.

Sin Cara Appears in AAA

In his first post-WWE appearance, Sin Cara showed up at AAA’s Guerra de Titanes on Saturday. He appeared to save Pagano from a beatdown, wearing his WWE mask and going by his WWE name. He has a 90-day no-compete clause, so he won’t be in a match any time soon. Still it is exciting as he is the first of that group of four releases (Sin Cara, Luke Harper, & The Ascension) to show up somewhere else in the wrestling world.

One for the Road:

An interesting theory on Wyatt/Fiend and his opponents. Does he make them revert to old ways?
