The final WWE Pay-Per-View of 2013 took place on Sunday night in Houston. The event ended with one unified WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
While the PPV was called “Tables, Ladders and Chairs,” the match between John Cena and Randy Orton was the only TLC match on the entire card. The match between Kofi Kingston and The Miz was the only other one with a stipulation.
Besides the unification match, there were three titles on the line, none of which changed hands. Below are the complete results from WWE TLC 2013, as well as a recap for each match.
WWE Champion Randy Orton OVER World Heavyweight Champion John Cena (Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match)
Orton became the WWE World Heavyweight title winner without any interference. He handcuffed Cena to the ropes, who still managed to get to the top of the ladder. However, Orton knocked him off and into a table before grabbing both belts. Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H came out to congratulate Orton as the PPV went off the air.
The Wyatt Family OVER Daniel Bryan (3-on-1 Handicap Match)
Bryan fought hard, but was no match for the three-man team. Bray Wyatt got the pin after pleading Bryan to join his family.
CM Punk OVER The Shield (3-on-1 Handicap Match)
The loss could be the beginning of the end for The Shield. Punk pinned Dean Ambrose, who had just been speared by Roman Reigns. Punk was able to sidestep Reigns, who was selling an eye injury that may have affected his vision.
WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust OVER Rey Mysterio & Big Show, The Real Americans And Ryback & Curtis Axel (Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match)
Rhodes pinned Mysterio for the win. Ryback was eliminated first, followed by The Real Americans.
Divas Champion AJ Lee OVER Natalya
Natalya thwarted AJ’s attempts to lock in her Black Window submission, but she wasn't able to avoid a pin from the Divas champion.
Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston OVER Damien Sandow
Langston was never in much trouble against Sandow, who hit his Big Ending finisher for the victory.
Kofi Kingston OVER The Miz
The match was made during the PPV, following a confrontation between the two during the pre-show. This could end the feud that the two superstars have had, which dates back to before Survivor Series.
R-Truth OVER Brodus Clay
R-Truth got the win with a rollup, but the most important part of the match was the completion of Brodus Clay’s heel turn. The Funkadactyls and Tensai both left Clay at ringside when he claimed that he was better than his tag team partner.
Fandango OVER Dolph Ziggler (Kickoff Match)
Ziggler was distracted by Summer Rae, which allowed Fandango to hit his leg drop from the top rope. The win could be the start of a push for Fandango.
