WWE’s final 2012 pay-per-view (PPV), TLC, has a chance to give the fans a wild finish to what has been a wild year of wrestling.

No other PPV of the year has the ability to pack as much potential explosiveness into one card as Tables, Ladders and Chairs can.

It’s a night to celebrate completely destructive tendencies and throw caution to the wind.

Take a look at a few of the exciting storylines to follow in this year’s edition of the PPV.


A Vision of the Future

Ryback and the young stars of The Shield represent a look into the future for WWE fans.

With Ryback, the future is now. He was scheduled to battle CM Punk for his WWE Championship before an injury curtailed those plans.

The showcase TLC match will benefit as a result. Throwing him and Team Hell No into the ring, on the same team and at the same time, is almost not even fare.

However, the youngsters of The Shield could get a huge push after a good showing.


The Extreme

TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs is the epitome of extreme wrestling in the WWE today. Its sole premise is to provide more excitement and grueling punishment to its stars than any other event.

Champions who survive this truly prove to be the toughest of the pack.

The tables, ladders and chairs theme includes a variety of different matches. The three-man tag team headline event, however, features all three of them together in what is sure to be an explosive display of punishment.


Championships Will Change Hands

CM Punk’s injury will keep the WWE Championship off the card, but that hasn't doomed what will be an exciting evening of WWE action.

There are still three other titles on the line at TLC and more than one of them could be on the move before all is said and done in New York City.

The International, United States and World Heavyweight titles will be defended in a variety of different extreme matches.

Not only are the titles up for grabs, but Dolph Ziggler’s World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank briefcase is on the line in a ladder match against John Cena.
