WWE Post-TLC Raw Live Results, Coverage and Analysis for the Slammy Awards
Welcome to the Bleacher Report live coverage for the post-Tables, Ladders & Chairs WWE Raw on Monday night.
TLC was a great show and tonight we will see the fallout from the various events from Sunday night.
The Shield was victorious over Team Hell No and Ryback in a brutal TLC match that will be a major topic of conversation tonight.
All the champions retained their titles in hard-fought matches, and Dolph Ziggler was able to keep his Money in the Bank briefcase with an unlikely assist from AJ Lee.
Alberto Del Rio also began a possible face turn after coming to the aid of the Spanish announce team and then later helping Miz and Steve "Brooklyn Brawler" Lombardi dispatch 3MB in a six-man tag match.
Rhodes Scholars are the new No. 1 contenders for the tag titles and Naomi showed some promise in her match against Eve.
Tonight's Raw will be interesting as we should get some kind of explanation for AJ's turn last night as well as get some idea of where WWE is headed going into The Royal Rumble in January.
We also have the Slammy awards tonight, which is sure to give us an entertaining moment or two.
Make sure to bookmark this page and come back tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern (5 p.m. Pacific) for live coverage of all the action as it happens live on television.

That show seemed like it took forever. It wasn't a totally terrible show, but the high number of very fast matches and the lack of any real storyline progression outside the AJ/Ziggler/Cena situation kept the show from being better.
The Slammy awards were treated like both a joke and a legitimate award at times so WWE obviously doesn't have a defined view on these things.
The debut of Big E. Langston was a pretty big shock to end the show and it might be what saved it from being a bad show.
Whether he has anything to do with The Shield will be a topic of discussion, but WWE might simply want to bring in another new face with AJ as an associate.
I am interested to see what happens tomorrow on the live SmackDown.
Thanks for reading and feel free to keep the conversation going in the comments section below.

AJ has a couple guys put a huge ladder in the ring and she climbs up to the top with a mic in her hand as we head to break.
After the break AJ says all she has heard for the past day is people asking her why. She says she thought it would be obvious why she would screw over Cena.
Vickie comes out to some boos and says nobody cares why she did it. Ziggler is out next to join AJ.
Cena comes out last and AJ has a look of disdain on her face, which is also how most of the crowd feels judging from the reaction he gets.

He runs Ziggler into the barricade a bunch of times and the crowd boos like crazy. Cena walks away and Ziggler lays on the outside unable to cash in his case.
Damn you, Cena! Cole says Ziggler still has his case since the bell never rang. Cole says Cena did this because he was screwed over last night.
Even though I am upset that Ziggler didn't get to cash in, I kind of liked that Cena did something dirty and unexpected. He took a cheap shot at Ziggler and he really has no excuses.
After the break Layla announces that #FEEDMEMORE gets the win. Ryder takes the award and says he will give it to Ryback backstage.

Tensai looks like he is humiliated to be out here. Santino calls him Albert. Santino says Tensai means Fat Albert in Japanese and Tensai gets a little upset.
The nominees for the next Slammy are The Rock taking a tour of a city to insult Cena, Bryan and Kane in anger management class, Orton attacking Del Rio backstage and Vickie Guerrero dancing like Elaine from Seinfeld.
I swear, if they turn Tensai into the next Vladimir Kozlov I will give up on him. He cannot team up with Santino or he will be done.

Ryback comes out before they can do it and he takes out all three members of The Shield. He presses Seth Rollins above his head and drops him on the announce table, which doesn't break.

Cena and Flair embrace as he comes out to accept the award. Cena gets a pretty negative response and he waits for it to die down before talking.
He can't get them to quiet down and Flair is having trouble keeping a straight face while the boos get louder. Cena finally starts talking and talks about the loyalty the WWE Universe has.
Cena says the Superstar of the year should be the greatest superstars of all time, Ric Flair. Flair shakes his head and Cena hands it to him anyways.
As Flair starts to talk CM Punk's music hits and he comes out on crutches. He says this whole thing is ridiculous.
Punk reminds us how bad John Cena's year has been in terms of losses. Punk says he never wanted to be like Flair and he takes the award and says it belongs to him.
Flair tells Punk he has been watching even though he hasn't been around. Punk says he could kick Flair's ass with one leg.
Flair makes a joke about having four ex-wives. He says he is ready to fight and heads to the ring while Punk stays on the ramp with Paul Heyman.
Heyman tries to talk Punk out of it as we go to break.
Khali vs. David Otunga
Khali's music hits and he comes out for a match before the break with Natalya at his side.
Does anyone else find it funny that WWE week ends on the day some people think the world is going to end?
After the break we see David Otunga in the ring as the opponent. I feel like these guys have faced off many times in the past year for some reason.
Khali hits some big chops to Otunga. Otunga avoids a big boot in the corner and pounces on a prone Khali.
Khali hits the big boot and the brain chop to get back control. He hits a second chop to win the match.

She reveals the winners to be AJ and John Cena. AJ comes out and Vickie says she needs to explain what she did during the ladder match at TLC.
AJ takes the trophy and says she doesn't owe anyone an explanation. AJ says she doesn't care what anyone thinks about her, including the fans.
Vickie calls her trash and they argue until Dolph Ziggler comes out and gets in between them. He looks like he just got back from his Miami Vice audition.
AJ jumps up onto Ziggler and starts making out with him and it takes him all of two seconds to kiss her back. They got at it for awhile as Vickie runs away screaming.
AJ leaves with her award and Ziggler looks confused.
More plugs for the WWE app before Vickie Guerrero comes out to some major heat. She is here to give out the award for Kiss of the Year.
The nominees are AJ and Daniel Bryan, AJ and Kane, AJ and CM Punk and AJ and John Cena.
What about Eve and Cena with Ryder sitting there with the most befuddled look anyone has ever seen?
