WWE.com: The Top 25 Summerslam Matches Of All Time, Ranked

#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

Edge & Christian vs. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz — World Tag Team Championship Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match (SummerSlam 2000)

The very first Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match at SummerSlam 2000 set the standard for every TLC Match to live up to. Hearts just about stopped when Edge & Christian sent a ladder-climbing Bubba Ray Dudley crashing through a stack of tables outside the ring. Millions cried in agony when Edge Speared an interfering Lita. And when E&C finally felled a dangling Jeff Hardy with a ladder to retrieve the titles, standing ovations mingled with sighs of relief. As for the WrestleMania X-Seven follow-up? No doubt it deserves a page in “WWE: 100 Greatest Matches,” but that match doesn’t happen without a precedent to surpass. — KEVIN POWERS




WWE.com: 25 Greatest Matches In WrestleMania History

#22. Money in the Bank Ladder Match — WrestleMania 21

Ladder Matches on The Grandest Stage of Them All tend to be great — no surprise there’s a bevy of them on this list — so the inaugural Money in the Bank Ladder Match, with its novel, game changing stipulation and can’t miss lineup of topflight athletes, Evel Knievels and a real-life monster, was bound to be excellent.

The second bout at WrestleMania 21 played out like a Michael Bay trailer with exploding robots replaced by guys like Christian and Kane. Fifteen minutes of gratuitous carnage led to Edge coming out on top — setting in motion what would become a defining run as a villain — but it was Shelton Benjamin who stole the show (and defied physics) by running up a diagonal ladder to deliver a diving clothesline to Jericho. This was the sports-entertainment equivalent of a Hollywood summer blockbuster. No wonder it spawned so many sequels. — RYAN MURPHY

WWE.com: The New Day Courts Controversy On ‘The Cutting Edge Peep Show’

Live Event Digitals > WWE Fastlane 2016
Screen Captures > WWE Fastlane 2016

CLEVELAND – Hilarity and hostility were on full display when The New Day joined Edge and Christian on the set of “The Cutting Edge Peep Show” during WWE Fastlane 2016. The two groups traded pointed barbs and amusing insults until Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods veered into putting down The League of Nations, which prompted the four Superstars to emerge from backstage.

A couple of the more memorable taunts during the show included Big E proclaiming “Out with the old, that’s you [Edge and Christian], and in with The New Day” as well as The Rated-R Superstar telling the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions he had “never seen so much chocolate act so vanilla.”

After several minutes of the verbal smackdown, The League of Nations joined the fray. With all nine men in the ring, tempers began to boil over until both The New Day and Edge and Christian eventually exited up the ramp, where both groups lobbed a few choice put-downs at, in the words of Edge, “The International House of Dumbasses.” The insults may be over, but the animosity between New Day and The League of Nations is certainly no laughing matter.

WWE: The 10 Best TLC Matches In WWE History

#5. Edge & Christian vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. The Hardyz (SummerSlam 2000)

The inaugural Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match was initially reserved strictly for tag team competition. As the first bout of its kind, the concept was more than well-suited to the three duos battling it out at The Biggest Party of the Summer. At this point in time, The Hardy Boyz, The Dudley Boyz and Edge & Christian were the three premier tag teams in sports-entertainment. The high-flying abilities of Matt & Jeff Hardy made ladders their forte, D-Von & Bubba Ray Dudley’s use of tables was their trademark, and Edge & Christian weren’t shy about offering their opponents a solid Con-Chair-To.

And with that, the TLC Match was born, the World Tag Team Championship was at stake and the three fearless duos changed sports-entertainment forever. Never before — even in the Dudleys’ former extreme stomping ground — had such a chaotic contest taken place. Ladders tipped over, sending already-chair-battered bodies crashing inside and outside the squared circle. When all was said and done, the WWE Universe’s collective breath was gone, and champions Edge & Christian retained the titles. Though The Rock faced Triple H and Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship later that August evening, the history-rattling TLC Match stole the show.


#1. Edge & Christian vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. The Hardyz (WrestleMania X-Seven)

In the weeks leading up to April 1, 2001, The Dudley Boyz were World Tag Team Champions, with archrivals The Hardy Boyz and Edge & Christian hot on their tail. After the trio’s high-risk battle at SummerSlam 2000, the only way the three teams could truly settle the score was to meet in a second TLC Match … this time on The Grandest Stage of Them All, which emanated from Houston’s Astrodome.

There could be no possible way for the three daring duos to top their innovative performances in the inaugural TLC Match, right? Not so fast — the second TLC Match is widely regarded by the WWE Universe as the best ever. The stakes were the same, but the stage was much bigger — which, of course, meant more tables and chairs, and much taller ladders.

The second TLC Match surpassed the original in terms of the sheer bedlam that ensued. Jeff Hardy created an unforgettable WrestleMania moment when he hit Rhyno and Spike Dudley — interfering on behalf of Edge & Christian and The Dudley Boyz, respectively — with a diving Swanton Bomb through two tables off a 16-foot-high ladder.

Amazingly, that incredible moment was overshadowed a short time later by Edge. As the battle raged above the squared circle, Jeff Hardy dangled from the hook securing the World Tag Team Titles. The Rated-R Superstar quickly ascended a ladder and Speared Hardy to the mat below. The unbelievable maneuver not only forever defined the TLC Match, but also ultimately helped Edge & Christian recapture the championships.




WWE.com: The 50 Greatest WWE Entrance Themes Ever

#36. Christian — “At Last”

Christian learned early that he would need to make a big statement if he ever hoped to step out of the shadow of Edge. After cutting ties with his longtime friend in 2001, he introduced an entrance theme to define him as a singular Superstar. To hammer home the point, the Canadian competitor employed a choir in his signature song to proclaim, “At last, you’re on your own!”

The tune shifts suddenly to heavy metal riffs, reminding the WWE Universe to take Christian seriously. Yet, the song leaves a haunting final impression when a maniacal opera singer screams, “Il mondo è mio!” — an Italian credo that translates to “The world is mine!” and fit Christian perfectly. — MATTHEW ARTUS


#9. The Brood — “Blood”

With their affinity for pirate shirts and a stylized entrance that saw the trio rise up through a ring of fire as if they’d just taken an elevator from hell, Edge, Christian and Gangrel brought a gothic cool to WWE at a time when Hot Topic stores still seemed kinda dangerous. But it was the trio’s theme — with its lurching church organ and moaning wah-wah guitars — that pulled the whole thing together. Stalking to the ring in time with the music, the creeping Brood in red-stained clothing nearly convinced audiences that “Blood” was the last thing they’d ever hear. — RYAN MURPHY
