Wrestlemania Dream Matches

In honor of the Wrestlemania 31 weekend, IGN’s Matt Fowler comprised a list of the 7 Wrestlemania Dream Matches That Never Happened, which are often debated by wrestling fans. You can read a few excerpts below: 

Who: Hulk Hogan versus Ric Flair

When: Wrestlemania VIII

It’s nuts that this main event match never went down back in 1992 when Flair had briefly crossed over to the WWE for a year. Flair winning the WWF title at the Royal Rumble seemed like it was setting up the obvious. The two biggest players in the wrestling game at the time going face-to-face at ‘Mania.

Hogan and Flair had both been wrestling each other on the house show circuit the previous fall (one of which I got to see at MSG – Flair won by DQ) and word has it that the matches weren’t being received well by the fans. Which then led to the decision to split the ‘Mania main event and pair Flair off with Randy Savage and Hogan with Sid. A bit of a head-scratcher for sure, but at least we got an excellent match out of Flair and Savage. A much better one, no doubt, than we’d have gotten from a typical Hogan big boot/leg drop finish.

Who: The Rock versus Triple H

Where: WrestleMania 2000

With Steve Austin injured and out, The Rock/Triple H title-picture feud ignited 1999/2000. And Mick Foley put his body on the line to make sure Triple H was way over as a heel champ heading into WrestleMania 2000. But instead of going with Rock vs. Hunter one-on-one, they threw in both Big Show and Mick Foley – plus all four McMahons!

Granted, it was great to see Foley be a part of a WrestleMania main event for the first time (in what was supposed to be his final match), but this was a situation where less would have been more. Rock would face Triple H in a singles match, and win the title, a month later at Backlash.
