As wrestling fans there have always been those matches that we have wanted to see. Yet there one if not many reasons that the matches never took place; either the competitors worked for different promotions, one or both of them were either retired and/or dead, or they just never wanted to work with each other. Though it goes without saying that if these matches had occurred that they would have been five star instant classics.
This would definitely have to be a ladder match. These two high flyers would be so evenly matched against each other it would be just a matter of time to see who would hit their finisher first. Yet this match has no chance of happening unless either Morrison or Styles switch promotions.
Here would be a great brawler/technical matchup between two legends. Not only can both men pull off the occasional aerial manuever but you have the submission style of Sting to go against the heavy handed brawler style of the Undertaker. This match could be made even better if it was in a steel cage/cell with the backgrounds that both men have in those structures. Yet with the Undertaker closer to certain retirement and Sting possibly in the same boat, not to mention it could only happen if Taker went to TNA as Sting vowed to never wrestle in the WWE, this match is one that will surely never happen.
Both of these men are renowned wrestlers and would definitely put on a great technical match. Angle would definitely have the edge when it comes to using submissions but Swagger might have him in the power department. This is one match that has a more than slight chance of happening if Angle decides to leave TNA if the rumors prove true and he would certainly give the All-American American a run for his money.
Here is one of two fights that fans were salivating over seeing during the Monday Night Wars. The two biggest names during that time would have put on a battle for the ages. This would also hopefully silence the arguments about who was the better headliner. This match if it ever took place would have had to be at Wrestlemania because that would be the only venue big enough for a match of this magnitude. This will probably never happen as Austin is retired from wrestling and most likely never coming back as a in ring performer. Hey, at least we got to see him give the stunner to Goldberg after his horrendous match with Brock Lesnar.
Both men were beyond great technical fighters and both can go back and forth at the top of any list of greatest speakers in wrestling. This is the match that should have happened instead of the Rock/Goldberg match. It would have been a great back and forth match between the two and with how well they can use a mic there would have been great buildup to the match. Also, as both men are known for being dirty fighters at times this would have been great when the Rock came back for that brief period as a heel only to be equalized by the infamous low blow kick of Flair. Yet due to the Rock now starring in crappy kids movies and Ric Flair busting his head open on a nightly basis for the delight of no one, this will most likely never happen.
Was there any doubt that this wouldn't be on the list. This was close to happening but due to disagreements about how the match would play out Austin was knocked down to fighting Scott Hall and the Rock filled in for Austin to put on a spectacular match with Hogan. This is one that needed to happen between the two biggest names in wrestling history and become the greatest match of all time. These men both knew their way around the ring and could cut promos with the best of them, as if they would have needed to hype this match to get people interested. Yet with Hogan in TNA and Austin retired this falls under the heading of so close, yet so far away.
