WWE TLC is on as we speak, we are a little less than an hour into the show! Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2019! I’m Jordan Huie of the Overtimer and I’ll be here all night to give you the results of the show as they come!
In the first Raw match of the night, Buddy Murphy took on Aleister Black. These are two fresh names on the main roster, both of whom have found quite a lot of success early on. They came into the night on a big winning streak, undefeated since being drafted to Monday Night Raw, which made things fairly interesting as the match was quite hard to predict.
You can see an excerpt of my recap of this match below:
Black takes him into the ring, push kick, pump knee to the face for a nearfall! Aleister wants his Dragon Sleeper but Murphy with a snapmare, only for Black to hit another push kick that takes Murphy right into the corner! Black takes him up top, pursues for a superplex but Murphy knocks him to the mat, only to eat a springing big boot to the face! Black wants a superplex, but Murphy avoids it, sunset flip, Cheeky Nandos Kick! And another and a third! Hooks him, Liger Bomb for a nearfall! Murphy struggles to his feet, they are both worn out. Buddy wants the Kamigoye, but Black grabs the knee! Fights to his feet, spinning back elbow! Murphy with a superkick! V-Trigger, and another, Brainbuster!!! Cover for a nearfall! A very very quiet duel starts. Legsweep from Black, Murphy leaps above it, blocks and trades, Black evades a knee lift, Black Mass gets the victory!
Winner: Aleister Black
The crowd definitely didn’t really know these guys and were quiet for most of it, but definitely came alive during many of the more intense spots and it was clear after the match that they’d both earned a good deal of respect. Just a great match as far as I’m concerned, just a brutal physical fight, with flashy strikes, like you’d want from these two guys. Hope they keep getting opportunities going forward.
