Tonight's the December WWE pay per view, TLC: Tables Ladders & Chairs live on PPV on Sunday, live, at 8pm from Brooklyn's brand spanking new Barclay Center. You can pay to watch the PPV on WWE.com or on TV, or you can watch a live stream of it free, here.
It's hard to imagine back in the early 2000s, when the TLC match was first held at Wrestlemania, that it would one day spawn its own pay per view, but hey, that's Vince McMahon -- he'll millk every drop. Let's look at the card.

In an unusual move, winners for this match will be determined by pinfall or submission, meaning they don't have to climb ladders and grab a belt. Probably because there aren't any belts for these jabronis to grab.
It's hard to believe this is the main event of the pay per view, but it was originally scheduled to feature CM Punk defend the WWE Championship against Ryback in a TLC Match. But then Punk hurt his knee during an angle and plans had to be scrapped. Vince McMahon announced this match a few days later, out of the blue. The Shield are a bunch of newcomers from NXT that have targeted their opponents over the past few weeks.
Ladder Match for the World heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank Contract: John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler
So this is basically money in the bank, but with the ladders and chairs gimmick. A briefcase containing the Money in the Bank contract will be dangling from the ceiling. The only way to win this match is to climb a ladder and gain possession of the briefcase. The contract allows the man in possession of it a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship whenever they want it.
Remember when Ziggler won the contract at Money in the Bank back in July? Well, us neither. But in the last few months, Dolph and his girlfriend, Vickie Guerrero, who also happens to be the acting boss on RAW, have gone after Cena hard. And thus was the setup for this match.
Chairs Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Champion Big Show vs. Sheamus
And then there is this, a "chairs match". What does that mean? It means they can use chairs to hit each other. Isn't that just like a no holds barred match or a "hardcore" match, you ask? Why yes it is. It's a lame gimmick.
The Brooklyn crowd will probably eat it up though, what with the WWE holding its first show ever there.
