WWE World Tag Team Championships Raw – TLC
Oct. 7, 2002 – It’s Raw Roulette Night and Kane is forced to defend the World Tag Team Championships alone against Rob Van Dam & Jeff Hardy, Bubba Ray & Spike Dudley and Chris Jericho & Christian in the first ever TLC Match on Raw.
The TLC match is a variation of a ladder match, which is modified to co-emphasize two other weapons: tables and chairs. The goal is to acquire the item (usually championship belts) which starts the match suspended above the ring. A TLC match can be seen as a more complicated ladder match, where tables and chairs, along with ladders, can also be used as legal foreign objects.
Another TLC match that could also exist as a variation of a hardcore match, where tables, ladders, and chairs can also be used as legal foreign objects, but the only way to win this variation of the TLC match is by pinfall or submission.
