This DVD features the full Tables, Ladders and Chairs event from 2013 which was headlined by a unification TLC match between WWE Champion Randy Orton and World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. It also contains a few bonus features with The Shield reflecting on their match, the superstars reacting to the main event, John Cena discussing the main event and an interview with Randy Orton as well as one bonus match from the kickoff show.

**Bonus feature** Dolph Ziggler vs. Fandango - This was from the TLC Kickoff show, it was a very short but fast paced match. It was nothing bad but it wasn't anything special either, there wasn't really much to it and it's not really worth watching.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon come out to kick off the main show to essentially advertise the show we're already watching, it felt very unnecessary.

CM Punk vs. The Shield - This was a Three-On-One Handicap Match where the members of the Shield had to tag in and out of the match. I'm not normally a fan of handicap matches like this but this was one was pretty good. Punk controlled a surprising amount of the match, taking advantage of an injury to Roman Reigns' eye which caused the match to fall apart for The Shield. They worked the match well without making it too unrealistic the Punk was able to keep up with three men at once.

Natalya vs. AJ Lee - This was for the "Divas" Championship and it was a short but pretty good match, there was some good drama towards the end with their submission attempts and a decent ending.

Damien Sandow vs. Big E Langston - This was for Big E's Intercontinental Championship, and it was another fauirly short match. It was pretty basic and was nothing too special but it did it's job well.

The Real Americans vs. Rey Mysterio and The Big Show vs. Curtis Axel and Ryback vs. Cody Rhodes and Goldust - This is a Fatal Four Way Elimination match with two men in the ring at once. It started off fine but picked up after the first elimination, with The Real Americans standing out as they isolated Goldust and prevented anyone else from getting the tag. The match then picked up again after the next elimination with some really good back and forth, fast paced action.

Brodus Clay vs. R-Truth - Before this match we got a horribly embarrassing segment to advertise "brawlin' buddies". The match itself wasn't very good, it was a one sided match that wasn't all that interesting to watch, it became more of an angle than a match by the end and was something that belonged on one of their weekly TV shows instead of a Pay-Per-View.

Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz - This was a No Disqualification match that was set up on the kickoff show. It was a decent match but again felt like more of something we'd see on RAW rather on Pay-Per-View. I like that they didn't just use a load of weapons with their stipulation as their feud really didn't need that. Instead it was just a slightly more aggressive version of what they'd normally do. It wasn't boring but wasn't anything special either.

Daniel Bryan vs. The Wyatt Family - This was the second Three on One Handicap match of the night but it felt very different. It was just as good as the previous one but with a completely different story. The Wyatt Family mostly dominated as Bryan just tried to survive. Bryan did find an opening and managed to make a comeback which again, was done in a way that didn't look unrealistic. Considering how I feel about this match type they did very well with them with this event.

John Cena vs. Randy Orton - This was a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match to unify John Cena's World Heavyweight Championship and Randy Orton's WWE Championship. They had a really good match that felt like it was a big deal. It wasn't the craziest of TLC matches and there weren't too many huge bumps but they didn't need that. They just beat each other up and went back and forth throughout, they made use of all three weapon types and even brought in handcuffs. It was a really good main event.

This was a good event overall, there were a couple of matches that weren't anything worthwhile but they were the shorter ones. The main event, the elimination tag and the two handicap matches all make this a worthwhile purchase.

CM Punk vs. Shield
The two handicap matches in the show are hard to judge because all of the guys are fantastic workers and performers but something was off about both matches. I can't put my finger on it but the two matches failed to get going, had an odd pace to them and just felt off. This was the better of the two matches in my humble opinion.
**3/4 / *****

AJ Lee vs. Natalya - Divas Championship
A match thrown together out of no where, like every divas match nowadays bar Kaitlyn/AJ in the summer of 2013. This actually was decent for the short time it was given. Finish was fun too.
**

Big E Langston vs. Damien Sandow - IC
Poor Sandow, he was supposedly a future World Champion and then he was fed to Cena in October. This was the definition of the word "meh". Not bad, not good either.
*1/2

Rhodes Bros vs. Rybaxel vs. Show & Mysterio vs. Real Americans - WWE Tag Titles
Finally something to get the crowd and me going. This was fun and sometimes that's good enough.
***

R-Truth vs. Brodus Clay
I've got to be honest here, i skipped this. Have no intention of watching this match ever.
SKIPPED

Kofi Kingston vs. Miz
Wow, i've never seen this match before! Same old, same old
*

Daniel Bryan vs. Wyatt's
Gave my thoughts earlier, didn't work for me.
**

Randy Orton vs. John Cena - TLC match - Unified Championship
Here we go again, Cena and Orton one on one for what feels like the 100th time. You know i'm going to admit know that i had one eye on this match, i was hardly giving it a full viewing because honestly i'm tired of seeing these two in the same ring together. Match was fine, slow but fine. Finish was botched, all you need to know really.
**1/2

The first thing that comes to mind with this event is how they only gave us 1 match featuring tables,ladders and chairs. Bit odd when you consider every year at this event,we get several matches featuring at least one of these. So with the main event (the tlc match) being very much the selling point for this event,we have an undercard that really isn't that bad,even without the expected matches.
So we start with an interesting idea as C.M. PUNK faces all 3 of THE SHIELD in a handicap match,it actually works,lots of great moments,even with a mistake or 2. It was a match that went for a good time and delivered in action,with a nice end.
NATALYA gets her hands on AJ for the diva's title next,it's good match,as you'd expect between these two talents,nothing special but very good.
BIG E LANGSTON vs DAMIEN SANDOW next,as BIG E defends his i.c. title. It's okay,but it doesn't really go anywhere and few cared.
The FATAL FOUR WAY ELINATION TAG TITLE MATCH next as champs GOLDUST and CODY RHODES go up against RYBAXEL (RYBACK and CURTIS AXEL),MYSTERISHOW (REY MYSTERIO and BIG SHOW) and REAL AMERICANS (JACK SWAGGER and ANTONIO CESARO). This is a top tag match,best we've had some time in my view. Loads of action and interesting elimination order,i really got into this one.
BRODUS CLAY takes on R-TRUTH. A grudge is starting between BRODUS and TENSAI and that pretty much dominates this match,it's a shame as R-TRUTH is impressive usually but wasted in this match no one really cared for.
KOFI KINGSTON vs MIZ in a no DQ match sounds interesting enough,but not a lot happens and again,few cared,shame to waste KOFI in this time filler.
Another 3 on one handicap match here as DANIIEL BRYAN takes on THE WYATT FAMILY. There's some great moments here,with bray's exorcist style move getting a lot of chants,BRYAN looks great and the whole thing works,nice time too.
The main event as the 2 main titles become unified in a tlc match where JOHN CENA faces RANDY ORTON. I really enjoyed this match to a point,lots of the kind of moments you'd expect and some nice wrestling,but for a match deemed the most important match in history,it really does fall short. Surprisingly short length in that it lasts less than half an hour and has an ending that seems to come at a moment where it looked as if it was going to go one for several more minutes,shame really. It's not even the best match of the year,nowhere near it,so for a match of this importance,it seems odd to me. Don't get me wrong,i very much enjoyed it,but it didn't become quite what it should've.
So a very enjoyable event,but they did mess up with a few things. Maybe next year,tlc will feature more TABLES,LADDERS and CHAIRS.
