WWE TLC has been held annually since 2009. The event replaced WWE Armageddon which had been WWE’s traditional December pay-per-view.
The 2009 edition of the event was held in San Antonio, Texas and was headlined D-X vs. Chris Jericho and The Big Show in a unification match for the WWE Tag Team Championships.
The most recent instalment of the show as held at the WWE ThunderDome due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On the show Drew McIntyre defeated The Miz and AJ Styles to retain his WWE Championship while Roman Reigns saw off the challenge of Kevin Owens to retain the Universal Championship.
The show was headlined by the now infamous Firefly Inferno Match between ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton. The show ended with ‘The Fiend’s’ lifeless body being set on fire and left in the middle of the ring.
Wyatt wouldn’t return until Fastlane in March before meeting Orton again at WrestleMania 37. The match proved to be Wyatt’s last in WWE before being released in July.
