Still three weeks away from TLC 2012, Monday's WWE Raw constructed a solid foundation for the upcoming pay-per-view.
For shows not named WrestleMania, WWE has made a habit of waiting too long to fill a pay-per-view's card, leaving insufficient time to create proper buildup.
With TLC, it appears WWE has decided to have everyone's hatred escalate and make TLC 2012 the place for it all to climax.
There are still matches yet to be announced, but the major pieces are in their proper places.
CM Punk's latest title match will have three weeks to catch fire. Big Show and Sheamus' feud is headed where many fans believed it would. The Intercontinental Championship match is already set.
Those are just some of the example of how the episode did its job-enticing fans to watch TLC 2012.
