WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders, & Chairs 2011 DVD Review

TLC: Tables, Ladders, & Chairs 2011 DVD Cover

In the WWE, TLC doesn't mean tender loving care, it means tables, ladders, and chairs. The third annual TLC event featured all three of those weapons on display plus a sledgehammer. However, none of those weapons were the big story of the night. This will always be remembered as the night that both Daniel Bryan and Zack Ryder won their first singles championships at this show in matches without any stipulations.

What I Said Then: The show got off to a great start with the US Championship Match and ended the same way. There were enough good matches and big moments during this event to make me glad that I ordered this show.

Has My Opinion Changed? No.

Overall Recommendation: I really liked this show and due to the historic nature of the event, I recommend adding this DVD to your DVD collection. Unlike most other WWE pay-per-view events that took place in 2011, no matches from this event were released on The Best Pay-Per-View Matches of 2011 set which came out a few weeks ago due to timing issues.

If you don't want to buy the whole event, you can buy chapters of it on iTunes for $3 each. If you decide to buy parts of this show in an à la carte format, I recommend the opening bout, the final bout, and the Chairs Match for the World Heavyweight Championship. On the DVD, that chapter ends with Daniel Bryan cashing in his Money in the Bank title shot. Hopefully, that bonus bout is also included in the iTunes "episode" for the Chairs Match.
