THE WWE Universe are often told about upcoming bouts being dream matches.
We have all been lucky enough in the past to witness some epic battles for the ages, such as Hulk Hogan vs The Rock and the not so memorable Undertaker against Goldberg disaster.
Here’s five dream matches that we would all like to see – but they look unlikely to ever happen:
ROLLINS vs OMEGA
Seth Rollins and Kenny Omega have been two of the top wrestlers on the planet for WWE and NJPW respectively over the last decade.
Omega is now part of WWE rival promotion AEW.
The two have fired plenty of shots at each other on social media in the past, leaving their respective fan bases arguing over who is the better man.
There is no doubt that the two would produce a match for the ages.
However, given Omega’s standing as executive vice president of AEW and Rollins’ position as one of the biggest talents on the WWE roster, there seems little chance we will get to see a showdown any time soon.
UNDERTAKER vs STING
It was a match the world wanted to see twenty years ago and despite both now being retired, it is still one fans everywhere would tune into.
The 61-year-old was forced to retire from the ring in 2015 after suffering severe neck injuries during a bout with Seth Rollins after he finally signed for WWE.
The two icons were kept apart at their wrestling peak and have since become one of the most-rumoured matches of all time.
Taker, 55, announced his retirement during the final episode of his documentary, The Last Ride, this Spring following WrestleMania.
Yet he also confessed that he would consider a return "in case of emergency" and if boss Vince McMahon was "in a pinch".
Speculation has recently claimed McMahon wanted them to finally battle at one of the company’s upcoming Saudi Arabia shows, but surely it would not happen unless fans are allowed back into stadiums to give the match the standing and audience it would deserve.
ROUSEY vs LYNCH
Ronda Rousey enjoyed a stunning run in WWE after she quit UFC to embark on her wrestling career in January 2018.
Meanwhile, during her stint as Raw Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch rocketed herself to the top amid a huge whirlwind of fan support.
She claimed the title plus Charlotte Flair’s SmackDown championship in a history-making WrestleMania 35 triple threat main event.
Rousey has not appeared in WWE since, with Lynch stepping away after defending her gold against Shayna Baszler at this year’s Mania after announcing she was pregnant.
The two have continued their war of words numerous times on social media, and a potential one-on-one between the two could easily main event a future WrestleMania.
ROCK vs REIGNS
Roman Reigns is back reigning as Universal Champion after turning heel and aligning himself with Paul Heyman.
The Tribal Chief has convinced his cousin Jey Uso to buy into his ways after twice beating him, and it looks like no-one can stop him.
The Rock, who paved the way for wrestlers to make the transition to the mainstream entertainment business, last competed in a six-second impromptu match against Erick Rowman at WrestleMania 32.
The Great One became one of the most recognisable faces on the planet during the WWE Attitude Era days in the 1990s.
Following a transition to the silver screen to become one of the biggest actors in Hollywood, he announced that he quietly retired from wrestling last summer.However Reigns – real name Joe Anoaʻi – has already said a match between the family members would be perfect to draw the Great One back to the ring at WrestleMania next year.
HOGAN vs CENA
Undoubtedly two of the biggest stars to ever climb into the ring, this potential showdown would certainly qualify as a dream match.
The Hulkster, 67, still claims to be in good condition despite several surgeries.
He has also stated that this clash with Cena was planned for WrestleMania 32 but it failed to materialise.
The Leader of the Cenation is now busy trying to conquer Hollywood, although he has vowed never to retire from WWE and still comes back for WrestleMania season.
He has managed to get good matches out of poor and limited opponents in the past, but even with his powers, it seems unlikely he could do that for Hogan at this stage.
