WWE has this little pay per view called TLC AKA Tables,
Ladders and Chairs. It is one of the greatest gimmicks in
the history of wrestling but does it deserve a PPV named
Back in 1999 at No Mercy PPV the Hardy’s took on Edge and
Christian in a ladder match. Then the following WrestleMania
and Summerslam had a triple Ladder match. Then in the spring
of 2001 Mick Foley who was the commissioner at the time made
that famous line saying “Tables, Ladders and Chairs oh my”
Once they had their crazy and spot fest match at
WrestleMania 17 the match was sold in the hearts of the WWE
Universe. Hardy’s brought the Ladders while the Dudley Boys
had tables and The two future world champions Edge and
Christian had the chairs.
Throughout the years they have involved into the Money in
the Bank Ladder match and others. Once you hear a TLC Match
you know it’s special and unique. If they give it a PPV and
most of the matches are about the Gimmick of the PPV then
where is the specialty of the name, gimmick and matches?
Though when you bring it out sparingly and in a program that
needs it, then it is a special thing but just to have a
rematch with a gimmick stipulation just to fill the void
then it brings down its value of the PPV. Let’s thank
about it yeah a tables, ladders and the main TLC match is
great but in this day and age where no head shot that makes
big spot in the match is no longer allowed and I’m glad they
don’t allow it anymore. Why have the need to have a chairs
match on the show in the first place.
I say have the top two matches in a TLC type match and the
rest of the PPV normal.
