There are some people who say WWE is running out of dream matches. In terms of people that immediately come to mind they’re right; we’ve had Cena vs Nakamura,Reigns vs Cena and Joe vs Brock already this year.
But there many possible match-ups that couldbecomedream matches. The problem is that at first glance people don’t see the appeal of seeing these people fight and immediately dismiss it.
An example is AJ vs Shane form this past year’s WrestleMania. The moment this match was rumoured the majority of fans hated it. They felt it was a waste of AJ on the biggest show of the year. When all was said and done however, what match was considered the show stealer? AJ vs Shane.
Here a few more you might not yet realise you want.
5. Mark Henry vs. Braun Strowman
Wait! Wait! Hear me out.
Look back at Braun’s series of matches with the Big Show. Probably the best matches Show has had in a long time. Now Strowman is moving into a program with Kane which will hopefully be as good.
Now imagine what he could do with Henry.
Strowman seems to be able to bring good matches out of people you wouldn’t expect. They did have a throw away match on RAW but there’s some actual storyline potential - Strowman going through all the big men to establish himself as the one true monster.
This could give Henry the proper farewell match he wants and deserves.
Once he beats Henry, all that’s left for Strowman is for Kahli to come back and put him over.
4. Goldust vs. The Velveteen Dream
Think about what the Velveteen Dream is; He’s flamboyant, wants all the attention and gets really close to his fellow wrestlers...
Remind you of anyone?
This almost writes itself; the aging star trying to prevent the new star from stealing the spotlight.This might not be a dream match from an in-ring perspective, but in terms of storyit could be excellent.
If you’re a fan of over the top stories and plenty of pomp and circumstance, this is the feud for you.
3. Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns
At first this might seem like the most random pairing, but it makes a lot of sense. They’re bigger than most of their opponents, put on better matches than you’d expect for men of their size and most importantly of all, they were considered the chosen ones. Roman Reigns is what Drew’s WWE career could have been if the office had gotten 100% behind him like they have Reigns. Drew’s story in NXT has been that he had to go away because he wasn’t ready for the opportunities he was given. This match could happen as soon as next year. Drew doesn’t need to be NXT champion for too long because he’s already ready for the main roster. He could confront Reigns after he beats Lesnar for the Universal title at Mania 34 wanting to see if Reigns deserves to be the new chosen one. Just like that, you have a ready-made title programme. No one would really mind Drew challenging for the title right away. The hardcore fans know his work on the indies and most of the casual fans would probably recognise him from his first run. It’s perfect!
2. Bray Wyatt vs. Aleister Black
Now it may seem like Bray has been so damaged that there aren’t very many matches people are desperate to see him in. If there is one exception, it’s a match against Aleister Black.
This could one of the few times Wyatt’s supernatural crap could work. Black could call Bray out for not being able to back up what he says and call him a false God.
He could force Wyatt to step up his game because he doesn’t have to pretend to be afraid of Wyatt, and let’s face it, one thing Bray Wyatt needs is to change and step up his game!
1. Asuka vs. Ronda Rousey
Rumours of Rousey wrestling for WWE have become more of a matter of time as opposed to if. When it comes to possible matches for her, the popular answers are a horsewoman four way, her vs Stephanie and her vs Charlotte. But there’s one opponent I can’t believe anyone hasn’t thought of - Asuka. It’s too early to see how Rousey will fair in the ring, but if she’s anything like her Horsewoman counterpart Shayna Baszler, she’s going to be very stiff. Who else in the women’s division could possible match Rousey in terms of strikes like Asuka? Asuka is a woman I wouldn’t be worried about getting in the ring with Rousey. There is added intrigue if they face off while Asuka is still undefeated. Would they let an outsider beat Asuka’s streak? The possibility of this match happening is dependent on two things however: 1. If Rousey does come to WWE, how long will she be around. She would most likely have a schedule like that of Brock. 2. If Asuka is booked to be as dominant on the main roster like she was in NXT. I would even go as far to say that this match, if booked right, could main event a big 4 PPV. Tell me you wouldn’t want to see this!
