Edge’s 10th World Championship win, the first ever Divas tables match, the end for Wade Barrett and the Nexus capped off an historic event at World Wrestling Entertainment’s TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2010.
The last WWE pay-per-view of 2010 featured for the first time a ladder, chair, tables or all in every match except the WWE Tag Team Championship match. A triple threat ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship started the show and was one of three times on the event that superstars had to climb a ladder in order to win. While the first few matches were kept short, it helped keep the excitement saved for the main event matches.
The TLC match with Edge, Rey Mysterio, Kane and Alberto Del Rio easily was the most exciting and featured the best action. Del Rio looked nervous at the start, but he took a memorable large fall through tables right before Edge won the championship. The different styles of all four competitors meshed amazingly well creating great back and forth sequences on top of ladders and when going through tables.
LayCool battling Beth Phoenix and Natalya in the first ever Divas tables match saw many tables around the ring, but the good Divas only wanted to put LayCool through a customized made pink table that had mocked versions of LayCool on it. Natalya was unsuccessful in putting LayCool through with the original plan, but she made the moment even more spectacular with some high-flying ability. One of the most unique matches ever in WWE, to see the Divas in that type of environment was truly a special moment.
The main event of the show saw John Cena finally put an end to his battles with Wade Barrett with a chairs match. The ending to the match was a fitting end to this long feud. In the only special feature on the DVD, Cena gives an interview explaining how glad he is to finally put the Nexus behind him after a tough 2010 with them.
Wrestling fans that have not seen this event definitely need to check out this DVD. It is not everyday WWE gives you an event like this and considering how WWE likes to change their ideas it is possible fans will never see this type of format again. Ladder and table match fans get high quality action all on one DVD.
