"I honestly think that you are so good (different) at how you approach columns. I know some people take compliments lightly and such, but honestly, you should be a very proud man. Boatloads of people including me, read your columns ALL THE TIME. Me personally, I wake up every morning, and before I go to school, I read your column (I'm 16). Also, your consistency with your columns is amazing, just from reading them so much, I almost feel like I know your thought process (not that I do). So with all of that out of the way, thank you."

My new 411mania.com column is posted. It is a full match by match review of the WWE TLC 2016 pay-per-view from Sunday night. Enjoyable show with a phenomenal main event. Lots of talking points heading into the Road to WrestleMania 33.

Here is the link with the clever "What The Ell's Going On Here?" tagline: http://411mania.com/wrestling/wwe-tlc-2016-review-what-the-ells-going-on-here/

Going forward, I have an idea in mind for something I want to do for 411mania before the year is up. We'll see if I can gather the motivation next week when I have three days in a row off work for the first time in nearly two years. Yay...might just sleep the whole time...

I have made my donation. You should too. Even if it is simply $1 or just a few bucks, every little bit helps. If that reasoning is not enough, Elijah Burke (The Pope) will give you a shout out on social media for donating.

Here is the charity's information and all you need to know: http://love-alive.org/

WWE Smackdown LIVE

A few quick thoughts:

- Did you notice the live crowd barely reacted to James Ellsworth? Whether he turned heel or is just some bumbling fool, the intrigue is done. I never cared for it in the first place, but live crowds were digging it for awhile...WERE being the key word. No idea why he got signed to a full-time contract or how long this nonsense will continue. AJ Styles needs to heal up, beat Ellsworth, and find his serious/high profile WWE World Championship challenger for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view next month. This whole debacle reminds me all too much of the Colin Delaney saga. If you don't know him, head on over to Google for a few minutes. You'll see.

- Oh, and no television ratings bump at all following the 'big' ending to WWE TLC on Sunday. No shock. Time for a new main event picture.

- Randy Orton opened the pay-per-view on Sunday, had the first match Tuesday night, and he is carrying a title belt that can also be defended by somebody else (Luke Harper). I am speculating here, but weren't there reports of him being part-tine for the next few months to be at home with his newborn baby? Perhaps WWE is purposely putting his stuff on early, so he can fly home immediately. Same with the tag belts. On live events, Harper can team with Bray Wyatt to defend the titles if Orton isn't scheduled to be there. Only an idea. No problem regardless.

- Dean Ambrose and The Miz feuding over the IC Title? Sure. Why not? It matches up the face/heel dynamic, and anything is better than more Ellsworth garbage.

- Good to see Baron Corbin AND the tag division get some buzz going. Now that Rhyno and Heath Slater are out of the picture, I feel confident about the tag scene. Same with Corbin, another strong victory. Give him a huge spotlight for the next month and make him a final four Rumble guy. Could do him wonders going forward.

- Originally, my money was on Natalya attacking Nikki Bella at Survivor Series. Now, I believe it is all a red herring. Can't be her. That'd be too easy and end up as a disappointing payoff. I have a shocking name that could have attacked Nikki but am saving the reveal for a future column. No, not Becky Lynch! Better write the piece before some news leaks online. Maybe next week, maybe.


Alright, the NXT Championship is back on Shinsuke Nakamura. Probably should have just stayed there at NXT Takeover: Toronto. I understand wanting to freshen up the live specials and create headlines. However, that really felt unnecessary. The big title fight in Japan still could have happened - just with Nakamura retaining. Either way, there is ONE MORE match between the two. That needs to be the end. No more after that. Nakamura moves on to a new opponent (my guess is Bobby Roode), and Samoa Joe heads up to RAW or Smackdown. Interestingly enough, the rumor months ago was Joe was headed to Smackdown. Now, word is he may be going to Raw instead. I think I'd stick with the original plan: Smackdown LIVE!

John Cena

Good luck to John Cena this weekend. He will be hosting NBC's Saturday Night Live. Admittedly, I have not watched the show in well over a decade and don't even care to watch Youtube clips anymore. Still, it is a major deal for a professional wrestler to land the gig. Super excited for Cena; hope he does a great job and continues his successful Hollywood run. Just be good and ready to come back to WWE around early 2017. The Undertaker will be waiting...

That should do it for now. I'm going to focus on my big 411mania.com project now for the next week or so. Fingers crossed that it works out. Until then, keep watching, following, and getting ready for WWE Roadblock!
