This Sunday's Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view will bring an exciting fight card to wrestling fans and there are some must-watch matches.

Let's take a look at some of these exciting matches set to take place.


Team Hell No & Ryback vs. The Shield (Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match)

Any match with tables, ladders and chairs can be exciting, but this particular matchup should take the TLC stipulation to a whole new level.

The Shield, consisting of Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, are the newest crew the WWE has to offer and there is great anticipation to see what these three can do together.

Ryback comes into this match in desperate need of a victory. Having lost in the last two pay-per-views, if Ryback is hoping to ever make a run, now would be the time to start. Daniel Bryan and Kane have brute strength, so look for some devastating chair shots and table slams.

Size and strength are an advantage for Ryback and Team Hell No, but The Shield is certainly crafty enough to overcome that fact.


Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Team Rhodes Scholars (Tables Match)

This tables match has a lot riding on it with the No. 1 contender spot for the WWE Tag Team titles on the line. The first duo to put the other through tables will earn a shot at Team Hell No for the crown.

High-flying maneuvers will be plentiful in this match. Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara are two great athletes who will push the very limits of gravity. This pairing should present some new and interesting ways to bust opponents through tables.

Team Rhodes Scholars are the more technical wrestlers in this matchup. While they can display incredible athleticism at some points throughout a match, Team Rhodes Scholars have a major strength advantage over the smaller team, so it could be a very painful ride through the wood for Sin Cara and Mysterio.

Cody Rhodes' injury side-tracked any hopes of Team Rhodes Scholars getting a shot at Team Hell No. However, with another opportunity to get a crack at the tag team titles, Team Rhodes Scholars will make the most of it.


World Heavyweight Champion Big Show vs. Sheamus (Chairs Match)

There is nothing better than watching two giants of the WWE smashing chairs over the each others heads. If you want brutal, head-crushing blows with steel chairs, this is the match to watch.

These two are no strangers to exciting showdowns as their last two matches have been "Match of the Year" candidates and both the English pub and parking lot will never be the same again.

Big Show currently holds the crown, but not without some controversy. Big Show retained his title at Survivor Series by disqualification in what was a desperation move at best.

Sheamus has come so close to grabbing Big Show's belt, but has fallen short in each of his attempts. One has to figure that now is the time Sheamus gets over the hump to take home some gold.

Despite Big Show's cheap victory, Sheamus did get some retribution by beating Big Show to dust with a steel chair. There's no doubt Big Show will be looking to pay back the favor, so expect these two stars to devastate each other with some metal.
