Big E Langston is riding high since winning the Intercontinental Championship from Curtis Axel at Survivor Series, successfully defending his title against Damien Sandow at TLC. With 2014 quickly approaching, what new challenges await the young champion, who is still looking to make a name for himself in the WWE?

Speaking of successful title defenses, Cody Rhodes and Goldust managed to retain their WWE Tag Team Championships, defending them in a Fatal Four-way Elimination match against the teams of The Real Americans (Jack Swagger & Antonio Cesaro), Ryback & Curtis Axel, and Rey Mysterio & The Big Show, surviving a tough bout that saw Rhodes nail Mysterio with a Cross Roads to barely hang on to their titles at TLC. Who will be the next team to step up and challenge the Rhodes brothers?

The Shield had a rough night at TLC after CM Punk outwitted United States Champion Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns, scoring the upset victory in his 3-on-1 Handicap Tag match at TLC. Reigns had a particularly bad night, first hurting himself after flying over the announcers table attempting to spear CM Punk while battling outside the ring, and later costing The Shield the match after he accidentally speared Ambrose, allowing Punk to get the pin-fall victory. Is there dissension among the ranks within The Shield in the aftermath of TLC? And how will The Authority, whom Punk has openly accused of siccing "The Hounds of Justice" on him, react in light of the former WWE champion getting past The Shield as well as attacking WWE COO Triple H during last week melee that ended Monday Night Raw?

Daniel Bryan ran into buzzsaw in his 3-on-1 Handicap Tag match at TLC, forced to face The Wyatt Family on orders from his former tag team partner and current WWE Director of Operations, Kane. Bryan fought valiantly against the odds, outright rejecting Bray Wyatt's offer to join his clan, and paying a painful price for his decision. Bryan managed to take out Luke Harper and Erick Rowan late in the match but was worn down by the time he could get his hands on the creepy clan's leader, with Wyatt muscling his way out of the Yes! Lock submission hold and finishing Bryan off with Sister Abigail. What do the Wyatts have in store for Bryan, on Monday Night Raw, after leaving him a battered and destroyed at TLC?

A new "Age of Orton" dawns on the WWE Universe after WWE Champion Randy Orton defeated World Heavyweight Champion John Cena in their Tables, Ladders & Chairs main event match that saw "The Apex Predator" unify the historic titles. Orton pulled out all the stops, not only using the weapons at his disposal to wear down Cena but also using handcuffs to prevent Cena from climbing the ladder to grab the iconic belts. Orton prevailed, with The Authority - including Mr. McMahon - celebrating with "The Viper" at the end of the night, after making WWE history Sunday night. What lies ahead for Orton, especially after having patching up his differences up Triple H? And will Cena get a rematch against Orton after his grueling match at TLC, possibly at the upcoming Royal Rumble 2014 event in Pittsburgh, Pa?
