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 my second WWE vs. TNA Dream Card.
WWE & TNA Presents "Rage in a Cage" (4-19-09)
This PPV is very similar to TNA's PPV "Lockdown". But instead of every match being competed in a normal Steel Cage, all of the matches will be contested inside the Hell In A Cell.
Match No. 1

Beer Money Inc. vs. Miz & John Morrison vs. LAX vs. Team 3D vs. Carlito & Primo vs. Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder vs. Jay Lethal & Consequences Creed vs. Cryme Tyme vs. Cody Rhodes & Ted Dibiase vs. The Hardy Boyz
From the start, the reigning champions Beer Money Inc. was at a disadvantage. But they held their own here. The first team to be eliminated was Lethal & Creed. Team 3D would double team Creed and eliminate Creed and Lethal. The next teams to go would be Primo & Carlito, Cryme Tyme, LAX, Miz and Morrison, & Hawkins and Ryder leaving the final four consisting of Team 3D, Beer Money, Hardy Boyz, and Rhodes & Dibiase. Rhodes and Dibiase squared off against Team 3D as Beer Money squared off agianst the Hardys. After hitting the What's Up on Dibiase, Brother DeVon went outside and brought in a table. But when DeVon sets up the table inside the ring, Matt and Jeff hits Team 3D from behind. Matt twist of fates Brother Ray and signals Jeff to go for the swanton. But as Jeff climbs to the rop, James Storm shoves Hardy off the top rope causing the Hardys to be eliminated. As Storm celebrates, DeVon gets behind Storm and when Storm turns around DeVon picks up Storm and 3D's Storm through the table. Brother Ray picks up Storm and tosses Storm over the top rope to eliminate the current tag champions. But in a split second of doing that, Rhodes and Dibiase rose to their feet and tosses both DeVon and Brother Ray over the top rope and becomes the new TNA Tag Team Champs.
Match No. 2
Dog Collar Steel Chain Match
Abyss vs. Kane
Just like their match from "Night of Retribution", this was just so violent and brutal. And the steel chain would come into effect many, many times. They would whip each with the chain, hang each other with it, and also wrapping the chain around their fist and beat each other with it which bust opens both men. Just nearly everything they could do with the chain they did it.
Midway into the match, Abyss starts to bring out some of his weapons, which includes a steel chair, a table, and two bags (one containing thumb tacks and one containing broken glass). Abyss first sets the table up on the outside between the ring and the cell. Abyss rolls back into the ring and tries to open up one of the bags but when he does Kane hits Abyss from behind with the steel chair. Kane wraps his big hand around Abyss' throat and prepares to chokeslam him. But Abyss counters and whips Kane into the rope and hits the Black Hole Slam on Kane. Abyss goes for the cover but Kane kicks out. Abyss then positions the chair in the middle of the ring and once again whips Kane into the ropes but this time he Black Hole Slams Kane onto the steel chair! But Kane is still able to kick out. With Abyss not thinking right and frustrated that Kane kicked out of two Black Hole Slams, Abyss goes to the top rope and when he leaps off Kane catches Abyss and hits the chokeslam. But Kane is too weaken to go for a cover.
Kane too goes to the top rope but Abyss gets up, grabs the steel chair and hits Kane with it. Kane falls and crashes through the table on the outside. With Kane on the outside, Abyss opens up both bags and spreads the tacks and broken glass on the canvas. Abyss drags Kane back into the ring by the steel chain. Whips Kane into the ropes and for the thrid time, Black Hole Slams Kane but this time onto the thumb tacks and broken glass and gets the pin on Kane for the win.
Match No. 3
Triple Threat Match for the X-Division Championship
Alex Shelly vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Evan Bourne
This match went at a fevourish fast pace. Bourne and Mysterio brought most of the high flying offense with Shelly staying more to the gound. All three men would team up at one point and double team the odd man. One incredible move in the match was when Shelly and Mysterio fighting on the outside, Bourne goes to the top and hits his five star shooting star press taking out himself along with Shelly and Mysterio. Bourne and Mysterio gets up and hard irish whips Shelly into the side of the cell which takes out Shelly for a little while. Bourne and Mysterio put on one hell of a back and forth fast paced match back inside the ring. Mysterio then dropkicks Bourne and sets Bourne up in the 619 position. Mysterio hits the 619 on Bourne but out of nowhere Chris Sabin (Tag partner of Alex Shelly) comes from under the ring and hits Mysterio with a steel chair. Shelly gets up and goes to the top rope and hits his own shooting star press onto Bourne to retain his X-Division Title.
Match No. 4

Kong and Beth makes history here. Being the first and only two women to fight in a Hell in a Cell Match. This match became much better then their match from "Night of Retribution." Kong was overpowering Beth for the majority of the match. But then Kong removes one of the turnbuckle coverings and sets Beth in the corner to deliver a big splash. Beth is able to move out of the way and Kong runs right into the exposed steel ring. Beth slides out the ring and grabs a steel chair from under the ring.
