TLC came to us live from Boston Massachusetts last night and for a show that looked stale from the outside, it managed to deliver when it truly mattered.
The lingering question following the WWE's final event of the year will definitely be whether or not the WWE Universe witnessed Roman Reigns turning heel.
THE HEEL WILL REIGN?
Reigns once again failed to capture the WWE World Heavyweight Championship after Sheamus called in reinforcements, and The League of Nations' (minus King Barrett) numbers game played out as The Irishman was the one to climb the ladder and retrieve his championship.

The former Shield member seemed to snap after the match and, after spearing Rusev, Alberto Del Rio and Sheamus, he then picked up a chair and unleashed an assault on the champion that was so graphic that it brought Triple H, Stephanie and a group of referees to ringside to try and calm Roman down.
After Reigns dropped the chair, it seemed The Samoan's frustration had subsided and he was going to exit the ring, but he didn't, he then began another attack on WWE COO Triple H as chair shot after chair shot landed down hard on his boss, the Superstar looked like a man possessed before Triple H rolled out of the ring.
Stephanie pleaded with Reigns to stop but he power-bombed Hunter through the announce table, and, when it failed to break, he hit a running elbow.
This looked like it could be the end, until Triple H was back up on his feet and Roman ran from the entrance ramp to once again spear Triple H out of his shoes, much like he did at Survivor Series.
WERE THESE THE ACTIONS OF A FACE?
There should be no doubt in anyone's mind right now that those were not the actions of a face superstar. Reigns attacked a defenseless man and when this man refused to fight back, he still continued the assault.
He also returned to attack the man after he was receiving medical treatment, this would be the kind of attack you would expect from Randy Orton in his Viper days or Triple H during the Daniel Bryan rivalry. These were not the actions of a frustrated face superstar, these were the actions of a good guy, turning to the dark side.
WWE could try to justify this as the fact that Roman has spent the entire year on the backfoot and finally his emotions got the better of him, but there is no doubting the fact that he acted like a heel against Triple H and if he isn't already a heel now, then it doesn't seem like it will be long before he will become a fully fledged bad guy.
