For years professional wrestling fans have had a number of “dream matches” that they would love to see happen. Back when the WWE had more legitimate competition like WCW and ECW, fans could dream up matches that would take place and, if they did take place, which wrestler would dominate. These dream match scenarios even inspired fantasy wrestling leagues which have been popular online for years.
Many huge matchups actually almost happened, but never did. Whether the matches were changed, cancelled due to injuries, or were simply a case of the producers deciding to go in another direction, all of these fights would have been huge. Wrestling fans from all over the world would have tuned in to see the action. Many of these matchups would have been between two big egos, and one, or both of them refused to lose, even if it was best for professional wrestling at that time.
With that all said, let's waste no more time and get to the 10 Wrestling Matches That Should Have Happened But Didn’t.
10 “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. Brock Lesnar
9 Eddie Guerrero vs. Shawn Michaels
8 Sting vs. The Undertaker
7 Bret Hart vs. Hulk Hogan
6 Shawn Michaels vs. The Rock
5 Hulk Hogan vs. Ric Flair
4 Vince McMahon vs. Eric Bischoff
3 Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Bryan
2 Hulk Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior II
1 Hulk Hogan vs. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
Hulk Hogan against “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is a true dream match that was rumored to be in the works several times. It would have been very difficult for either man to set aside their ego to the other, and the buildup to this match would have been huge. The match would have gone back and forth and would not have been very technical. The advantage would likely have gone to whichever man would have been willing to bend the rules and go behind the referee’s back. Who would have won this match is anybody’s guess, but the slight edge goes to the Hulkster in his prime.
