WWE's always explosive TLC PPV took place at the prosaically-named Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio last night, seeing both title and bodies on the line.

If you're yet to watch or are going to struggle to fit in the three-hour event, here's a quick rundown of what happened:

Dolph Ziggler defeated Luke Harper (c) - Ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship


Ziggler hit a superkick off a ladder and grabbed the belt to become the new Intercontinental Champion.

The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso) defeated The Miz and Damien Mizdow (c) by disqualification - Tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship


The Mix was DQ'd after striking the Usos with his Slammy Award.

Big Show defeated Erick Rowan - Steel Stairs match


Big Show landed a knockout punch on Rowan, before completing the weird stipulation of pinning his opponent with the steel stairs.

John Cena defeated Seth Rollins (with Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury) - Tables match; Had Cena lost, he would have been stripped of being the #1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship



There were table crunches abound as Cena hit Rollins with an Attitude Adjustment early on before doing the same to the interfering J&J Security.

Big Show was next to show up and try and take Cena, but Roman Reigns made his return and took down Show. He then Superman Punched Rollins leaving Cena to AA him through a table once more for the win.

Nikki Bella (with Brie Bella) (c) defeated AJ Lee - Singles match for the WWE Divas Championship


Brie Bella managed to distract the referee allowing Nikki to spray AJ in the face with hair spray (sigh) and Rack Attack her for the pin.

Ryback defeated Kane - Chairs match


Kane succumbed to a Shell Shock from Ryback.

Rusev (with Lana) (c) defeated Jack Swagger by submission - Singles match for the WWE United States Championship


Swagger passed out after being put in the Accolade.

Bray Wyatt defeated Dean Ambrose - Tables, Ladders and Chairs match



In a bizarre ending, Wyatt landed a Sister Abigail after Ambrose tried to hit him with a plugged-in TV that spontaneously exploded.
