Tonight is WWE's Tables, Ladders and Chairs PPV event. This is one of WWE's PPV events which is named after a stipulation match, much like Hell in a Cell and Royal Rumble.
The phenomenon of the TLC match started way back in 2000 when The Hardys, The Dudleys and Edge and Christian faced off at WrestleMania 2000 in a triangle ladder match.
These three teams tore the house down that night and during the match their use of chairs and tables prompted WWE to officially make this a new type of match.
The TLC match was born only a few months later at SummerSlam 2000 and it was contested with the same three teams.
It is funny to think back to this time because off these six men, only one is still employed by WWE, and he is injured at the moment.
With tonight's TLC event being the year ending PPV I thought it would be appropriate to take a look back at the match that started it all.
I was originally going to write a single page article about this and have the video at the top, but the only way I could find good videos was in two parts so I extended it to a short slideshow. Enjoy!
