In this article, I have created many, many matches pitting WWE superstars against TNA superstars. I have used current champions from both rosters, but I have developed my own match types. However, I will also be using some of the original match types as well (Hell in a Cell, Ultimate X, Monster's Ball, etc.).
This is only the first of these WWE vs. TNA Dream cards. I hope to be coming out with more in the near future. I have also given the card its very own original PPV name and date.
WWE & TNA Presents "Night of Retribution" (3-29-09)
Match No. 1
Four Team Ultimate X Match for the World Tag Team Championship
Motor City Machineguns vs. The Miz & John Morrison vs. LAX vs. Jay Lethal & Consequences Creed
This match starts off highly energetic. LAX are the fan favorites in this one. As the match progresses, the fans start to chant "THIS IS AWESOME." One insane move in the match is when Homicide performs the Gringo Killer on The Miz from the top of the Ultimate X ropes. But in the end, Miz and Morrison retain their World Tag Team Titles.
Match No. 2
United States Championship
Shelton Benjamin vs. "Maple Leaf Muscle" Petey Williams
A back and forth matchup here with lots of chain wrestling. Benjamin has held the U.S. title for eight months now, but Petey is ready to take the title away. Petey takes a hard T-bone suplex on the floor and barely makes it in the ring before the 10 count.
But after 29 minutes of battling the hell out of each other and after three attempts at the Canadian Destroyer, Petey finally hits it and becomes the U.S. champion for the first time.
At this point in the PPV, Todd Grisham interviews Sting about his title defense against the Undertaker later in the PPV. Todd asks "What do you need to do to defeat the Undertaker?" Sting replies, "I must put the Deadman in the ground for good!"
But then, the lights go off, and when they come back on, Sting isn't there anymore.
Match No. 3
Submission Match for the Intercontinental Championship
CM Punk vs. Samoa Joe
Before the match gets underway, fans start chanting "JOE'S GONNA KILL YOU." Both men go for their submissions early on, but counter each other. When the match gets taken to the outside, Punk and Joe battle into the crowd.
Joe gets busted open, after getting his head slammed into the steel ring steps. When Punk tries to hit his GTS, Joe counters it into his chokehold where Punk almost passes out before finally grabbing the rope.
Joe gets up all raged that Punk didn't tap out, grabs a steel chair, and hits Punk, causing the disqualification. This rivalry is definitely not over.
Match No. 4
Match of 10,000 Tacks
Kane vs. Abyss
This match becomes very violent and very brutal early on. After four or five minutes of trying to wrestle each other, Abyss starts to bring out some of his toys. He first looks under the ring and grabs a steel chair that is wrapped in barbed wire.
Abyss hits Kane with it which severely lacerates him, causing blood to cover his whole face making Kane's face look like a "Crimson Mask." Abyss has the advantage for a good while, but when he goes for his Black Whole Slam, Kane counters into a sidewalk slam.
Kane then pulls out a table from under the ring and sets it up on the outside. Abyss hits Kane from behind with a steel chair. Abyss then pulls out the thousands and thousands of thumb tacks from under the ring and covers the table with them. After the table is covered in the tacks, Abyss then sets the table on fire!
With Kane laid out on the floor, Abyss picks Kane up and tries to suplex him into the flaming table, but Kane counters and then chokeslams Abyss through the flaming table covered in tacks! Kane then grabs Abyss and throws him into the ring. He picks him up and Tombstone's Abyss onto the barbed wire chair for the win.
Match No. 5
"Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels vs. "Phenomenal" AJ Styles
Right out of the gate, the fans once again started to chant "THIS IS AWESOME!" This match, like the Petey and Benjamin match, was very back and forth. After back dropping AJ over the top rope, HBK springboards off the rope but misses AJ and crashes into the announce table.
AJ then starts to wear down Michaels—working on Michaels' back among other body parts. AJ hits the Styles Clash, but HBK is able to kick out. AJ picks Shawn up and prepares to hit HBK with his "pay lay," but Shawn ducks and hits sweet chin music on AJ.
Shawn goes for the cover, but AJ kicks out. Shawn then goes to the top and scores with his patented elbow drop. He nips up, goes to the corner, and starts warming up sweet chin music.
When AJ stands up, Shawn tries to kick AJ's head off, but AJ ducks and gets the quick roll up on Shawn for the win. After the match, Shawn shakes AJ's hand.
Match No. 6
TNA Knockouts Championship
Awesome Kong vs. Beth Phoenix
This match becomes the weakest match on the card, which is very disappointing. This match only goes around the nine minute mark, after both women are counted out. Beth ends this confrontation with a hard chair shot to the massive head of Awesome Kong.
Match No. 7
Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship
Triple H vs. Kurt Angle vs. Randy Orton
Great triple-threat match for the WWE Title. When all three men make their way onto the outside, Angle and Triple H team up for a split second and double suplex Orton through an announcer's table. Triple H and Angle then start to battle for a good eight minutes with Orton out.
Triple H hits the pedigree on Angle and goes for the cover. But Orton gets up and interrupts the count. Orton then tries to hit the RKO on Triple H, but Triple H counters and sends Orton over the top rope. Angle gets up and hits the Olympic slam on Triple H. Angle takes down his straps and puts the ankle lock on the Game.
With Angle standing up and still having the ankle lock locked on Triple H, Orton out of nowhere RKO's Angle and Angle rolls out of the ring. Orton gets poised and ready to deliver a RKO to Triple H.
Triple H gets up and Orton goes for the RKO. But, Triple H counters and shoves Orton into the turnbuckle and rolls up Orton for the 1-2-3 and retains his WWE championship.
Match No. 8
TNA Heavyweight Championship
Sting vs. The Undertaker
You couldn't ask for anything more from these two legendary icons. Before Sting and 'Taker get underway, they have a face-to-face stare down. When the bell rings, 'Taker and Sting just go at. Taker starts to wrench on the arm and then hits old school on Sting.
'Taker tries to hit the last ride, but Sting reverses and chop locks 'Taker's leg. Sting starts to work on the leg of 'Taker and prepares to set in the Scorpion Death Lock. Sting uses the ring post to add more punishment on 'Taker's leg, even applying the figure four leg lock to 'Taker using the ring post.
As Sting tries to put on the Scorpion, 'Taker grabs Sting's neck and chokeslams Sting, causing him to roll out of the ring. 'Taker gets up and dives over the top rope onto Sting. Taker positions Sting on the apron and performs his leg drop on the edge of the ring onto Sting.
Then Sting and 'Taker battle a good while inside the ring. 'Taker once again tries to hit the last ride, but Sting counters again by rolling 'Taker on his back and then setting in the Scorpion Death Lock. After a good minute in the Scorpion, 'Taker makes it to the rope.
With 'Taker positioned in the corner, Sting gets on top and delivers fury punches to the Deadman. Then 'Taker grabs Sting's tights and finally delivers the last ride. 'Taker goes for the cover, but Sting kicks out.
'Taker sits up and cuts his throat signaling for the Tombstone. 'Taker picks Sting up, but as 'Taker tries to hit the Tombstone, Sting reverses it into the Scorpion Death Drop and gets the win, retaining his TNA World Title.
