#15 Birthplace of the TLC match
TLC — or Tables, Ladders and Chairs — matches are so popular among the WWE fans that they now have their own pay-per-view. It all began with the incredible TLC match between the Dudley Boyz, the Hardys and Edge & Christian at SummerSlam 2000.
The first-ever TLC match was born out of GM Mick Foley’s frustration that the three top tag-teams in WWE kept bringing their signature weapons to the ring with them which invariably caused chaos. Foley eventually brought them together to finish their rivalry for good and incorporated tables, ladders and chairs into a single match-type and the rest, as they say, is history.
