The confines of the steel cage have produced some of pro wrestling's best, most violent and most dramatic matches.
It's a structure designed to have two rivals settle their differences in brutal fashion and to keep outside inference at a minimum. It evokes images of fighting gladiators.
To compile the best bouts the cage has had to offer, one has to pull from the archives of WWE, WCW, WCCW, TNA and AJW. Many of the cage match's variations are included here; cages with roofs, with Plexiglas pods or with multiple rings inside it.
The greatest cage matches are ranked here based on how compelling the story was inside the steel, on their violence and intensity and how impossible they are to forget.
