There is a huge misconception that TLC 1 took place at WrestleMania 2000, while some believe that it happened at WrestleMania X7. The reality is that the WrestleMania 2000 match between The Dudley Boyz, The Hardy Boyz and Edge & Christian was a triangle ladder match.

This was the iconic match that most people remember, where Edge speared Jeff Hardy from the top of the ladder.
