What If TNA and WWE Crossed Paths?

Over the past few years, we have seen a clambering for dream matches, in particular Sting vs The Undertaker.

So what would it be like, if for one night, WWE and TNA crossed paths for a four hour mega PPV?

Here is my dream card for that highly unlikely night….

MATCH ONE – FATAL FOUR WAY ULTIMATE X MATCH

ZEMA ION VS KENNY KING VS EVAN BOURNE VS TYSON KIDD

There is no better outlet for lighter Wrestlers than Ultimate X, and the four best high flyers from both federations would make one hell of a match here. After what we saw from Lockdown, King and Ion have wonderful talents, and are capable of solid in-ring action, as well as outstanding high flying exploits.

In my opinion, WWE’s two best high flyers are out injured, with doubts over whether Evan Bourne will actually return. However, there is no doubting the superb in-ring set the man has, and it would be a shame if we never saw him in a WWE ring again, although it would be an awesome opportunity for TNA if Bourne were to become a free agent.

In Kidd, WWE have the last graduate from the Hart Dungeon, and the Canadian has always seemed on the cusp of a push before something gets in the way, this latest time a huge knee injury.

In terms of a winner, for me it has to be Zema Ion. The man has recovered well from the inevitable mental stress caused when he accidentally injured Jesse Sorensen last year, and has almost single handedly, kept the X-Division’s high standards going over the past 9-12 months.

WINNER – ZEMA ION

 

MATCH TWO – MONSTER VS MONSTER

KANE VS ABYSS

I’m not a fan of the Joseph Parks character. I feel it insults everyone’s intelligence when TNA try and tell us that Abyss has a brother. However, a return for Abyss at this time would be perfect, and would remove that stale quality that he had before the gimmick change.

Despite both men being 300 lbs plus, they both have solid in-ring sets, although I don’t think this match should have a stipulation (Monster’s Ball match would only suit Abyss). These guys could have a solid ten-fifteen minute match, which I could see ending with a Black Hole Slam from Abyss, seeing TNA winning their second match of the night.

WINNER – ABYSS

 

MATCH THREE – BATTLE OF THE KICKS

JAMES STORM VS SHEAMUS

I have to say that I am a big fan of James Storm, and am glad that his world title run was not just a month run at the top, and has led to some classic PPV main event quality matches over the past eighteen months. His gimmick works, and he has a brilliant ability to work as both a heel and a face.

Sheamus on the other hand, is a much better heel than face; the more he acts like a good guy, the more I can only think about him being a happy leprechaun. But his in-ring style is good, and the only thing I hold against him is that he have still only seen him in one proper Wrestlemania match.

For me, it will be the Brogue that will win this battle, with Sheamus having a little bit more to overcome the Cowboy.

WINNER – SHEAMUS

MATCH FOUR – BATTLE OF THE POSTER-BOYS

JOHN CENA VS AJ STYLES

There is no denying that over the past ten years, these two men have been the faces of their respective promotions. The only major difference is that Styles has had multiple heel turns, keeping his character fresh.

Over the past few weeks, we have seen a different side of Cena in the ring; effectively since his match with Dolph Ziggler at TLC, and now more than ever, I have confidence that a match against AJ would bring out the best in Cena.

What can I say about AJ Styles that hasn’t already been said; the man has almost single handedly brought TNA up to the standard where it is today. Now, he has the opportunity, after a break from the company, to take his place back at the top of the company.

This would be my one match on the card that wouldn’t have a winner, with it being a draw in someway similar to the Punk-Cena match from this past autumn.

WINNER – DRAW

MATCH FIVE – DIVA VS KNOCKOUT

GAIL KIM VS TAMINA

I have picked each company’s strongest female competitor, and I would give the pair of them ten minutes to show what they can do. Both women have proved in the past that they have what it takes to make it in a male dominated world.

In the end though, Tamina seems to have that bit extra in terms of size, strength and agility that will give her the win.

WINNER – TAMINA SNUKA

MATCH SIX – ELIMINATION SIX MAN TAG

BULLY RAY, DEVON AND KEN ANDERSON VS THE SHIELD

The two most dominant factions in each company facing off in a match to find out who is the best in the world. In a match that could last anywhere between twenty and thirty minutes, I can only see a match full of high paced action.

After their respective partners had been eliminated, I can see the final two men being Bully Ray and Dean Ambrose. Both men have impressed hugely over the past six months; in my opinion, Bully Ray has produced the best work of anyone on the TNA roster over the past year, and after watching Ambrose, in my eyes, he is the one of The Shield I can imagine going to headline a Wrestlemania in the future.

Bully would have to get the win though, if not for pure reward for his excellent work.

WINNER – ACES AND EIGHTS – BULLY RAY

 

MATCH SEVEN AND MAIN EVENT – SIXTY MINUTE IRON MAN MATCH

KURT ANGLE VS DANIEL BRYAN VS CM PUNK VS BOBBY ROODE

We have reached the final match of the night, and I was thinking of ways to fit these four men into the card. In a one hour Iron Man match, we would have four men trying to get the best out of each other in a match I cannot recall happening in the past.

For this match, I am not going to pick a winner though. I could argue a case for every man to win, and we could go on forever about why each man deserves to win.

So I would like you to suggest a winner, and suggest matches I may have missed. I understand that I have missed off people like Daniels and Kazarian, Randy Orton, Ryback, Dolph Ziggler and Jeff Hardy, but it was just a case of matches I would like to see occur in the future. That is not to say that I wouldn’t put these men in matches further down the line.

    All I can say is a double deserve to be on that card and would put him and ziggler in iron man match but only 30 mins match which their moves could still be fresh and not over use all the moves in each other moves set. I couldn’t pick who could win the last match neither. But I am a bigger tna for the last few years cause tna has better wrestling to me. Joe vs ryback could be good to but I will chose joe to go over. I watch both raw and impact tape them on my DVR every week. But I must say it is much easier to set through a two hour impact and want more than to watch raw and wish it was like a hour. I can’t stay home and watch raw at all. I must forward cause it seems like filler every week plus the same matches done over and over with sometimes longer or shorter times with the same results. Tna company of the future of wrestling and this comes from a 22 making 23 old man that was watching wrestling for 18 years and love the Monday night wars.

  • JJ

    How about an ultimate king of the indys six-man battle royal: Daniels, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, and Antonio Cesaro

  • Ibra

    I like the sound of that match JJ. I have Aries to win that one cause he my favorite wrestler today

  • thebees

    Wow I totally disagree with almost every match outcome. Wow

  • jblack

    This is cool. Here is my idea.
    Combined tv, us, int for intercontiental title. It’s world cupish. Winner also guaranteed a world title match in future. Elimination.
    Tna us storm, Samoa is Samoa Joe, Canada b roode, Magnus UK, hernedez mex, cesaro switz, Barrett Scott, sheamus Ireland, Jericho WWE can, USA WWE ryback.
    Gail Kim vs aj lee. Ko title.
    Orton vs Anderson vs kofi..Orton screwed on from huge push and one from his job. Kofi becomes tweener as Anderson tries to persuade him to help end Orton.
    J hardy vs punk tna title. Perfect rivalry. Never touched drugs to one who abused them. I understand reasons for why he used them. Bottom line is everyone loved and respected him cause like Foley he gave us his body.
    Me personally I want taker vs kane vs sting vs abyss in monster ball elimination.
    Cena vs aj styles I agree with.
    Angle vs Brock on more time.
    Hell no vs kaz Daniels.
    Hw title ziggler vs Aries.
    Jarrett vs hhh.
    My main event rock vs bully ray WWE title.

  • goalabama

    i think john cena VS Matt Morgan
    I agree on Sting and UNDERTAKER

  • Axl

    7 matches wont cover a 4 hour ppv. how about some tag team matches. Some more single matches, how about a 10 a elmination tag team match 5 best wwe superstars vs 5 best tna superstars? how about a battle royal?

  • Axl
