In what was announced as the biggest match in the history of the WWE, Randy Orton defeated John Cena to unify the WWE and World Heavyweight Championships to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion at the TLC pay-per-view.
The match was billed as a tables, ladders and chairs match and the match lived up to the billing as Cena and Orton throughout the match used the weapons that were as advertised. The ending of the match was when Orton was able to handcuff Cena to the bottom rope of the ring. Orton grabbed the ladder and slowly went up the ladder and Cena was able to rip the rope off. Cena was able to go up the ladder and try to stop Orton and was able to land some punches. Orton was able to bounce back and knock Cena off the ladder, who went through the table. After a few moments, Orton unhooked the belts to win the match.
The match ended and then Vince McMahon’s music hit and he came out with The Authority to head to the ring. They entered the ring and clapped for Orton, with Stephanie giving him a hug and receiving a handshake from HHH. The show ended with Orton raising both belts and Cena looking towards him.
