WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs Coverage: Opening Moments
Triple H’s music hits, and he and Stephanie McMahon make their way to the stage. Stephanie says each and every one of us are a part of history as we will witness the biggest match in the history of the WWE. The crowd attempts to drown her out with “YES!” chants, but she goes along with it. Triple H talks about the match in 1963 between Buddy Rogers and Lou Thesz. He mentions Harley Race, Bruno Sammartino, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. He says tonight, two great Championships become one, and only one man will walk out as the Champion of Champions. Stephanie asks if it will be Randy Orton or John Cena, and the crowd boos both men’s names. She says we will crown the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
We then see the video hype package for the pay-per-view.
We go live into the arena, where John Bradshaw Layfield, Michael Cole, and Jerry Lawler welcome us to the show. We go to the ring for our opening contest.
