TLC is known as being one of the most exciting pay-per-view events WWE has to offer, following this week's edition of Monday Night Raw, however, it is easy to think otherwise.
Raw this week came just six nights prior to the highly-anticipated pay-per-view event, which is set to take place at the TD Garden in Boston.
With the inclusion of tables, ladders and chairs being permitted, TLC is one of the rare opportunities WWE fans will get to see something that verges on the old Attitude Era.

Although still limited than what would have been possible some years ago, the WWE Superstars often put on performances which mean fans are likely to witness more memorable, hard-hitting matches.
For the go-home edition of Raw this week, however, this was not to be the case. Instead, WWE proved once again how lost its creative team are with pretty much the entire roster.
Some of the wrestlers who have perhaps been hit hardest by this struggle for ideas are those who make up the company's Diva's Division.
During this week's episode of Raw, Alicia Fox and Brie Bella took on two members of team B.A.D. in Sasha Banks and Naomi, but, unfortunately, the latter's stable name was fitting for the bout.
The match, which lasted just a few minutes, was yet another to add to the list of forgettable Divas matches, whether it be on Raw, a live event or pay-per-view.
Add to this the fact there was no clear storyline or meaning for this match-up, and it is easy to see why the WWE Universe has had enough of the company's misuse of some of its most talented wrestlers.
In what is considered to be noteworthy of late, WWE had more than one segment involving some of the female WWE superstars on its roster.
This time, it was Charlotte's turn to represent the Diva's Division, by appearing on Miz TV alongside her Dad and WWE legend, Ric Flair.
An appearance made by Ric Flair is always welcomed by followers of WWE, but this segment needed him and ended up being carried by the icon's inclusion.
WWE have relied on the Flair name far too much and although this part of the show enabled Charlotte and Paige to gain some form of heat ahead of their match at TLC, it ultimately did not add a lot to their feud.
What is perhaps most frustrating about WWE's negligence of its female wrestlers is that there are so few of them.
With regard to the male roster, there are always going to be names who are left out of programming but WWE has the audacity to care so little even when they only have a small number of Divas under their wing.
