Countdown to WWE TLC 2012: 1 Day
Match of the Night: Hardy Boyz vs Dudley Boyz vs Edge & Christian (Triple Threat Tag Team TLC Match)
Tomorrow night’s main event will consist of a 6-man Tag Team match between Team Hell No & Ryback vs The Shield, and what a better way to preview this contest than the 1st WWE TLC match ever. This match was for the WWF Tag Team Championship and was part of the same rivalry that we have introduced a couple of days ago on the PW2C Countdown with the Tag Team Elimination Tables Match. It took place at SummerSlam 2000 and was considered the 3rd most important match -and rivalry- of the card following Triple H vs The Rock vs Kurt Angle and Kane vs Undertaker, respectively.
The Hardy Boys and Edge & Christian continued their feud, which resulted in a Steel Cage Match at Unforgiven. As for the Dudley Boyz, they switched their focus on APA (Farooq and Bradshaw) for a short time before the two teams became allies against Right To Censor, a faction made of Steven Richards, The Godfather, Bull Buchanan and Val Venis. Then commissioner Mick Foley scheduled an 8-Man Tag Team match at Unforgiven that Right To Censor won.
The first PW2C Countdown is now over. We hope that you enjoyed our preview for WWE TLC, and don’t forget to come back before the Royal Rumble for 3 other historic matches that took place at the same PPV. In the meanwhile, make sure you read the Pro Wrestling Culture Cloud columns and other daily news for some rare facts and footage. Thank you for your time and enjoy this Sunday’s PPV.
