The Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Match debuted at SummerSlam 2000. The first two matches featured Edge and Christian battle the Hardy Boys and the Dudley Boyz. Before these matches, Edge and Christian used chairs as their weapons of choice, the Hardys used ladders, and the Dudleys used tables during their matches. This match allowed all three teams to use their weapons of choice legally.
TLC matches were held sporadically over the next few years. In 2009, the match became the basis for an annual PPV event called TLC: Tables, Ladders, Chairs.
