#5. Edge & Christian vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. The Hardy Boyz — World Tag Team Championship Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match (2000)
SummerSlam has always been groundbreaking, but its most original match may have been the very first TLC bout in 2000, which blended Edge & Christian’s chair assaults, The Dudley Boyz’s table onslaught and The Hardys’ high-flying ladder excellence into a whirlwind of fast-paced hysteria.
The three-way bedlam that followed proved to be the ultimate thrill ride that did much more than allow Edge & Christian to retain their World Tag Team Championship gold. It would serve as the benchmark for one of the squared circle’s most unique specialty matches in countless contests to come – and a WWE institution that would one day become the namesake for a pay-per-view. — MICHAEL BURDICK
