It’s the go home show for Tables, Ladders And Chairs and that means most of the card is set. Now that being said, I’m not sure how many things they can really do to make the card all that interesting at the last minute. Hopefully this gives it a much needed boost, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up. Let’s get to it.

Opening sequence.

No Way Jose vs. Eric Young

Jose dances a lot and grabs a wristlock, followed by the airplane spin for two. Young takes it to the floor and knocks down the entire Conga Line to make things serious. Back in and Eric chokes out of the corner before dropping a forearm for his own two. Jose’s comeback doesn’t last long as he gets sent face first into the corner, setting up Young’s wheelbarrow neckbreaker for the pin at 4:26.

Result: Eric Young b. No Way Jose – Wheelbarrow neckbreaker (4:26)

Video on Daniel Bryan being attacked and behaired by the Fiend.

That’s a rather violent act:

“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt takes a piece of Daniel Bryan: SmackDown, Nov. 29, 2019

From Smackdown.

Here’s the Miz to get things going. He has been looking for Daniel Bryan since Bray Wyatt attacked him last week and will find him no matter what. Miz knows what Bryan has meant for Smackdown since he arrived and that can’t go away because of the Fiend. Bray pops up on screen to say that something bad happened to Bryan last week. Bryan was supposed to come play at TLC and now that might not be happening. Maybe Miz can come play instead!

Miz isn’t sure, but that makes Bray unhappy. Ramblin Rabbit pops up to tell Miz to run while he can but Bray scares him off. The Word of the Day is family, because Bray used to have one. Now Bray has a chance to join a new family, so he holds up a picture of Miz, his wife Maryse and his two daughters. Does Miz want to come play with him now? Miz storms to the back.

Post break, Miz calls Maryse and tells her to lock the doors. He wants to do something about this but she wants him to come home.

I’d call that serious:

Bray Wyatt wants to play with The Miz and his family: SmackDown, Dec. 6, 2019

From Smackdown.

Miz is marching through the back and hears a noise. He goes into a room and finds the same photo of his family, but with Bray’s picture over his face. Bray jumps him from behind and hits Sister Abigail before singing a little There’s No Place Like Home.

Batista and the NWO are going to the Hall of Fame.

We look at the AOP/Seth Rollins/Kevin Owens issues.

From Raw.

Owens finds the AOP’s van and unloads on it with the pipe. The AOP comes in and beats him down. Someone is in the back of the van and….of course it’s Rollins. Seth says it’s come to this and Stomps him onto the bare concrete. Rollins looks at the AOP and they leave together.

Post break Rollins is in the arena to rant about how everything should have gone perfectly for him. He gave everything he had for every one of the fans but they booed him anyway. Rollins doesn’t care for the fans getting on the Owens’ bandwagon because Owens if the flavor of the month. It was true that he wasn’t with the AOP but no one believed him. What does Rollins have to do to get the people’s respect? All of this negativity has turned into a self fulfilling prophecy as he is now standing with AOP. They come out to stand by his side and all three leave together.

I smell collusion:

We look at the Kabuki Warriors destroying Becky Lynch.

Cedric Alexander vs. Ricochet

Cedric was supposed to face Seth Rollins on Raw but Rollins was injured so this was made instead. They fight over wrist control to start until it’s a flip off for a staredown. Back from a break with Ricochet hitting the springboard clothesline into the running shooting star for two. They head to the apron with Alexander hitting something like a Rock Bottom for two of his own. Ricochet avoids the Neuralizer though and hits a superkick into the Recoil for the pin at 7:12.

Result: Ricochet b. Cedric Alexander – Recoil (7:12)

From Raw.

Jerry Lawler is in the ring with table and chairs so Rusev and Lana can get divorced. Lana and her lawyer come out and Lawler reads off a statement, saying that the restraining order has been lifted. Rusev, in a Donald Duck shirt, comes out and has a seat as Lana rants about she never loved him. He isn’t allowed to speak because this is always about him. Rusev Day went to his head and it’s time to get on their feet to yell at the fans.

Rusev says this is how his marriage went and Lana needs to calm down. He’s the one who needs protection this week and we see a clip of Lashley and Lana being arrested last week. Lana rants about how Rusev will never have anyone like her, but Rusev says he can’t stand her now so why would he want another. Lana screams about how Rusev Day and the WWE Universe destroyed her marriage, nearly breaking down in tears. Rusev says this is ridiculous and wants to sign the divorce papers.

They’re ready to sign but Lana insists that she sign first. Lana: “I get the dog!” They get in an argument over the dog, which is giving me flashbacks to HHH and Stephanie back in the day. Lana emphatically signs but Rusev needs something from her before he signs. Lana thinks he means sex in a variety of places but instead it’s a match with Lashley. Cue Lashley to say he wants the divorce finalized so he can marry Lana. They agree to a match at some point and Rusev signs, triggering the brawl. Lashley beats him up on the floor but Rusev suplexes him through the table back inside.

Domestic disputes can be a lot:

From Smackdown.

Roman Reigns vs. Dolph Ziggler

Ziggler can’t wrestle him down to start but he can go to the knee for some more success. The chinlock and a hair pull put Reigns down again and Ziggler sends him into the steps to make it worse. Back with Reigns still in trouble, including being sent hard into the corner. We hit the chinlock again with Ziggler cranking away until Reigns powers up to his feet. Reigns’ running clothesline misses and they fight to the floor where Ziggler dropkicks him out of the air.

Cue King Corbin, complete with the throne being carried to the ring of course. We take another break and come back with both guys down. Reigns gets back up and hits the Superman Punch for two but Ziggler is right back with the Zig Zag for the same. That doesn’t work for Corbin, who gets on the apron and is punched right back to the floor. The spear finishes Ziggler at 17:48.

Result: Roman Reigns b. Dolph Ziggler – Spear (17:48)

Post match Corbin’s handlers jump Reigns and Corbin gets involved too with Reigns fighting them off. Someone underneath the ring grabs Reigns’ leg but he beats Corbin up some more. Ziggler superkicks Reigns and grabs some handcuffs from underneath the ring. Reigns fights them off again but the guy from underneath the ring grabs his foot again and the numbers get the better of him.

They handcuff him around the post and unload on Reigns before pulling out….dog food. It’s poured over Reigns’ head and rubbed in his face to end the show, with Reigns screaming as the other two leave.
