The 10 best TLC Matches in WWE history

#9 Kane & The Hurricane vs. Christian & Chris Jericho vs. Jeff Hardy & Rob Van Dam – Raw, Oct. 7, 2002

On Oct. 7, 2002, former WCW President–turned Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff introduced the ground-breaking Raw Roulette. Kane & The Hurricane were set to defend their World Tag Team Titles against Christian & Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam & Jeff Hardy and Spike & Bubba Ray Dudley. The Raw Roulette wheel selected a TLC Match, much to the delight of the WWE Universe.

Before the contest, The Hurricane was attacked, leaving The Big Red Monster to defend the titles on his own. In a TLC Match, simply taking out one-half of an opponent’s team doesn't offer much of an advantage when there are three other duos vying for the ultimate tag team prize. As expected, the heart-sinking drops from the wobbly ladders, broken tables and dented steel chairs were all present in one match for the first time on Raw. But Kane rose above the risks of the tag team TLC Match, overcoming the odds and retaining the titles by himself on behalf of his team.
