Top Ten WWE Dream Matches That Never Happened


The Top Ten

1 Sting vs The Undertaker

This will be once in a life time

This should be either a hell in a cell match or a 3 stages of hell match, first stage inferno match, second stage first blood match and third and final stage, buried alive match!

Yes! This would be great at Wrestlemania but Brock Lesnar already beat the streak. - Glirkinsnoff

Unarguably! These two wrestlers, as well as their characters are two sides of the same coin. Undertaker didn't compete in Wrestlemania 2000, but if he did then a match against Sting would've been the perfect fit for that time. Both were still at their peak.

2 CM Punk vs Stone Cold Steve Austin

This would be an awesome battle

I can see it now, the two biggest rebels ever putting on a Once in an Eternity match at Wrestlemania and in the end, Stone Cold takes out a can of beer for him and a can of diet pepsi for CM Punk and they give a toast in the middle of the ring for the awesomeness they had just made.

In my opinion, if they would've fought, WWE would let Punk win. - Buddyd123

I think stone cold can easily beat CM Punk. He had beaten almost everyboby who comes on his path. - subhashsahu

3 The Rock vs Shawn Michaels

The best match that never happened

Rock & HBK are the two best showmen alive, they would make great promos beforehand and they would both bring out the best of each other in the ring. Too bad that The Rock was becoming a star when HBK retired in 1998 and then when HBK came back in 2002 The Rock left for Hollywood, and when the Rock came back in 2011, HBK retired for good at WM 26. I still would rather pay to see this match than watch Rock & Cena for free.

Its hard to say Undertaker vs sting, though it would be my pick, it still could happen, but this is definitely a close second, two of the best wrestlers with a great history behind each, going at it in the squared circle

That will be an awesome match winner shawn Michaels

4 Stone Cold vs Goldberg

But stone cold hit a stunner to Goldberg after Goldberg defeated Brock Lesnar. I don't remember when.

Austin vs pirate austin

Stone cold is next!

Could be the best match in history but did not happen Imagine what could happen to arena.

5 Stone Cold vs Hulk Hogan

Should be #1. 2 of the biggest faces in WWE history. - Buddyd123

In my opinion the two biggest pop culture crossover sensations in pro wrestling history, this match would have been a box office EXPLOSION! People who never watch pro wrestling would've tuned into see the Texas Rattlesnake go up against Hulkamania.

It could had happened but it was hogan vs rock I don't care I want Austin vs Hogan

This had the potential of the match of the century

6 Daniel Bryan vs Kurt Angle


Two of the best technician wrestlers ever!

Yes yes yes yes yes...

That would be awesome they work together now

V 4 Comments
7 Daniel Bryan vs Chris Benoit

In my opinion it would be the greatest match of all time

Two of the best technical wrestlers of last 15 years, would definitely be a 5* match

This would be the greatest match of all time

Can't denie this would probably be a match of the year if they had a rich rivalry building up, Bryan would have to be the HEEL - Drewstar

8 John Cena vs Stone Cold

This hasn't happened?

This match will be cool

John cena and stone cold are 2 of the best of all time how can you not want that to happen

I am the biggest fan of cena & I want to see that match

9 The Shield vs NWO

The argument that NWO is better is dumb, your argument was that Kevin Nash almost beat undertaker, Hogan was the best ever, and Scott Hall best Shawn Micheals. The truth is Roman Reigns did beat the Undertaker, Seth Rollins has beaten all of he people he has faced at one point or another, and Dean Ambrose has beaten just as many people as Roman and Seth. Then there is the point that the Shield only ever lost any matches when they weren't cooperating or when they were massively outnumbered. The Shield is the MOST DOMINANT team to ever step foot in a WWE ring.

Those 2 teams do wear black

I think it would be a awesome match nWo all of them are hall of famers all the shield members did something no one did roman reigns eliminated 12 people and set a new record and Seth Rollins was the first person to hold the WWE championship an the United States championship dean Ambrose holds the record for the longest United States champion ship reign

How would the shield beat the Nwo? Kevin Nash the guy who almost beat undertaker, Razor Ramon the guy who beat shawn Michaels at wrestlemania X, and Hogan, one of the best ever

10 Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels vs Triple H

If only it did

Three legends fighting together! This will be one of all WWE fans' dream come true. Most likely, The Phenom would win.

The Contenders

11 NWO vs.DX


Would you be ready? Dun dun...

Not only would we have Shawn Micheals,Scott Hall and Kevin Nash return but would have to do their impersonations of NWO, what would make the match better is if X-Pac was special guest referee. If the WWE was nice to us they could have it in Madison Square Garden site of the Curtain Call incident. This would be the perfect Wrestlemania match

12 Bret Hart vs Kurt Angle

Two of the best technicians in the industry. The only reason I can think of for why these two shouldn't square off is that one of them would have to lose in the end.

The Canadian hero, Bret Hart, who made me believe that he was by far the best there is, was, and ever would be. Watching his matches made me wish I was older than 1 when they happened live. Before I saw WrestleMania 12 on my own, I would've thought that nobody could possibly make an hour-long match enjoyable to watch.

The Olympic Gold Medalist, Kurt Angle, who revolutionized T.V. Wrestling by bringing Olympic Wrestling to the ring and made me realize just how beautiful the art of Pro Wrestling could be. Without him, I'd be telling all of you "Wrestling's Fake! " like all the other people who don't understand how fascinating the art can be.

This was always a match I wish existed. The buildup of the match alone would've been too much for me, especially if Hart had his Pro-Canada/Anti-America gimmick ...more

Michaels beat Bret at Mania. Kurt however, has beaten Michaels at Mania. Interesting deciding factors in this one. Sharpshooter vs. Ankle Lock. I'm going to have to go with the Olympic Hero on this one. Sorry Bret.

Two of the most tactful wrestlers of all time. I can just imagine the back and forth grapples, reversals, and submissions. This is the one I'd pick.

Bret Hart Must Be Won

26 Bret Hart vs. HHH
27 Team Hell No vs Powertrip

Daniel bryan retierd

28 AJ Styles vs Seth Rollins

Already Happened It was great

Cool match

Better happen now if Vince wants money, but its not because you know about old man vince

29 Kane and Undertaker vs DX vs Mankind and The Rock

Rock'n'Sock for the win! I can imagine the double people's elbow to a member of and to one of the brothers to then win by pinball.

30 Harley Race vs Triple H

High is the best of his era, when at his prime carried the company more than Austin ever did, don't think so see who wasn't around when he rose to the top

31 CM Punk vs Randy Savage

The two biggest talkers and yet also two top wrestlers. If they fight at mania with a six month build up, imagine the hype and revenue they could produce.

How in the world is this match not even in the top 10? CM Punk is the Randy Savage of the modern era, always in the shadow of the 'superhero', but everyone knows technically they were better. This would have blown the roof off the place!

CM Punk rules sonI would go for CM Punk

32 Randy Orton vs Stone Cold Steve Austin

This dream match that everyone wants

The Viper vs the Texas Rattlesnake

This my dream match the viper vs the snake

In my opinion if this match happen then orton win it

43 Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Goldberg vs John Cena vs The Rock vs Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels vs Triple H vs Hulk Hogan Elimination Match at Wrestlemania

That sounds awesome, I say stone cold wins

Should be an Hour match
Nobody gets eliminated first 15 min
Hulk Hogan pumps up and lays everyone out in the ring, Except Goldberg SPEAR!
Hogan The Immortal has been eliminated
Goldberg destroys everyone and looks unstoppable, HBK and Triple H get busted open, Cena is in Tree of Woah, Stone Cold and Rock are layed out outside, Undertaker vs Golberg for 5 min Goldberg hits undertaker with everything Jack Knife and even an F5 but nothing puts away The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, Undertaker is to exhausted to do a tombstone gets SPEARED but then Goldberg gets locked into Hell's Gate and just when he seems to almost get out of it, John Cena STFU and Shawn does an Ankle Lock, GOLDBERG the Hype taps out and is eliminated. Triple H starts going on Cena and Shawn on Undertaker, They set them up on the announce table, Chop Pedigree to Cena and an Elbow drop to Take through the table, they both try and drag undertaker in But They see Stone Cold standing in the ring and the Rock ...more - Drewstar

Greatest dream match of all time.
