WWE: 5 Dream Matches for Raw's 1,000th Show

1 of 6

    We can expect the 1,000th episode of Raw in a few weeks will be the biggest thing in the history of the WWE on television.

    If it isn't, then something is seriously wrong with the creative teams for both Raw and SmackDown, the management of the company and, well...

    OK, you get the picture.

    There will be stars making appearances, vignettes from current wrestlers and of course a stroll down memory line like nobody's business.

    The WWE has done a good job leading up to the event with wrestlers giving their account of how Raw has impacted their careers, their favorite matches and highlights and so on.

    It should make for some outstanding television.

    But wouldn't it be great to see some of our favorite matches revisited? The ones that we have wanted to see again and again or ones we have never seen in the first place?

    For what should prove to be an amazing night of television, here are five matches we all might enjoy seeing again.

Undertaker vs. Kane

2 of 6

    What better way to kick off an anniversary like this?

    The greatest rivalry in all of professional wrestling (in my opinion) gets one more chance at immortality.

    This would be the greatest sendoff for the Undertaker.

    So much has been made of the two "brothers" and the storyline that still captivates us today. Is there a better feud over the years? I don't think so.

    While we have seen them together in action as tag team partners, the two despising each other is far more compelling and makes for better drama.

    And if Paul Bearer came back for one night, then the story would come full circle.

The Rock vs. Steve Austin

3 of 6

    The best matches at WrestleMania, hands down. These were two men who truly enjoyed sharing the ring of battle and sold for each other like no other wrestlers (except maybe Rick Steamboat and Ric Flair).

    No one will ever argue the intensity in both these men, the work ethic or the way they both performed with each other in the ring. And neither can it be argued that there were other opponents, but none who pushed them harder then these two.

    When the WWE needed greatness, all it had to do was look at arguably the two most popular wrestlers ever, and nothing else needed to be said.

Lita vs. Trish Stratus

4 of 6

    The WWE's two greatest female wrestlers of all time and arguably two of the sexiest women to ever get inside the ring could go at it again.

    Whether it is Lita's top rope antics or Trish's mat skills, they could still light the place on fire.

    Over the years and recently, there has been speculation both could return to the ring and make the Divas Division prominent again. This would be a great way to show the current generation of divas in the WWE how female wrestling is truly done.

HBK vs. Triple H

5 of 6

    Friends become foes.

    We thought this would happen at or after WrestleMania 28. It never came to fruition.

    But when these two get in the ring, for whatever reason, there is true excitement.

    HBK has said before he is done with wrestling. We all know at some point HHH will get back in the ring, probably against  Brock Lesnar.

    But seeing two of the best performers in WWE history electrify the crowds would be a cap on a great night of entertainment.

Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar

6 of 6

    The irresistible force taking on the immovable object.

    Lesnar's career is far better than Goldberg's, but did anyone have a better 15 minutes of fame (I know it was longer) than Goldberg?

    And with the pit bull mentality of both men, this could truly be a "slobberknocker" in the words of Jim Ross.

    Right now, it would appear no one can stop Lesnar if and when he returns to action. But for one night, it would be great to see him try and run through the guy who was always asking us "Who's Next?"
