The black ladder took bumps and they bent to the point where when they were set up they kinda tilted. So if you were climbing your weight would noticeable shift to the way it tilted.

It's those ladder matches on the indies that really scare me. You never know what they'll do during and the ladders aren't always the most sturdy/safest. (yeah, but what ladders are really "safe" to use in a match though?) Steen Wolf ladder & various ones in CZW come to mind as very dangerous. I need to see how the ladder match from tonight goes after a rewatch. I'm far too surprised by Jeff killing himself to even look at it from a "fan rating" standpoint.
Those Japanese tables are extra strong!
But yeah man I don't think there's ever been a sturdy enough ladder besides that one Big Show used in a MITB match before. All ladder match seem to feature the ladder shaking, off balance or at worst bending to the point where you can hardly climb it. It can be scary, I was hoping the two referrers standing at ringside would notice the wobbling ladder and run in to help keep it steady. It might have been 'lame' but it would have been a little safer. Glad nobody took a spill they weren't meaning to take though, could have been...deadly.
Imagine how scary it is to climb something that's wobbling underneath you, terrifying. I really hope the ladders at TLC and Final Battle are in good shape.
