Tables, ladders, and chairs. Three pretty standard household objects that we all have lying around somewhere. In fact, I’m sat on a chair at a table while typing these very words. I don’t have a ladder handy though… mainly because that would be a bit odd.
However, when these three objects end up in a WWE ring together, we end up with something called a TLC match, in which chairs are used to bash each other, tables are used to lob each other through, and ladders are used to jump off and onto each other.
There have been 20 TLC matches altogether, and in 2009, WWE took it upon themselves to turn the match into a pay-per-view gimmick, because we all love those, don’t we?! (No).
Nonetheless, there have now been nine TLC pay-per-views in total, and with a tenth on its way December 16, we’re going to take a look at the main events from each year, and rank them in order of Dave Meltzer star rating. So if you have an issue with any of these, shout at him not me.
Note: for matches that have the same star rating, they will be listed in chronological order.
Without further ado, leggo! That’s youth speak for “let’s go”. Possibly.
