ⓘ Tables, ladders, and chairs match

A tables, ladders, and chairs match, often abbreviated as TLC, is a type of professional wrestling match that originated within the World Wrestling Federation.

The TLC match is a variation of the ladder match, which is modified to co-emphasize two other weapons: tables and chairs. The aim is to buy the product, usually a championship belt, 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 also could exist as a kind of 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 a hold or submission.
