According to Reddit user MetsFan4Ever, a former employee of World Wrestling Entertainment, the mood backstage coming out of “WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders, Chairs……and Stairs” is not good.
Many in the company believed that while “NXT Takeover: R Evolution” was one of the better shows of the year, there was a good chance that the pay-per-view this past Sunday could top it.
It’s safe to say that it didn’t live up to their expectations.
Here is what MetsFan4Ever had to say:
“Coming out of the PPV last night, I’ve been told many in the company are not happy with the end result. While many knew it would be tough to top the NXT show, there were people who thought it could be pulled off.”
“There have been rumblings that some talent knew they couldn’t top NXT so in a silent protest in favor of Triple H, some superstars were described “mailing in” their matches last night. Many are in favor of Triple H and what he has done with the NXT product and feel it is time for Triple H to take the lead on the main roster.”
“John Cena held a talent meeting about an hour ago which was described to me as forceful yet calm in his approach. Cena stressed that a silent protest is not what the roster needs. Instead, they need to go out there and start stepping it up every night for their point to be proven.”
This is just my opinion, but WWE “TLC” was easily the worst PPV of 2014. With the exception of maybe one or two bouts, there wasn’t much to love about the show. No wonder talent are fed up.
