TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs was the third annual TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by WWE. It took place on December 18, 2011 at the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. It was the first pay-per-view since WWE Cyber Sunday 2008 not to feature John Cena at all for a match or a promo, and the first since WWE SummerSlam 2003 to not feature him while being active on the participating roster. This was also Booker T's first pay-per view since WWE SummerSlam 2007.
The event received 179,000 pay-per-view purchases, which was down from the previous year's 195,000 buys.
