Why has Rock Vs HBK NEVER happened. Even Now it'll be AMAZING for The Fans.

Rating: 4 votes, 3.00 average.
They my have had their issues back in the day and were kept apart by Vince but that was an eon ago. It's probably the only true 'Dream' Match left that is actually possible and legit. HBK can do what Undertaker does and turn it on once a year at Mania because he is 'Mr WrestleMania'. Rock has an incredible ability to disappear for months/years and come back as if he never left. He's never been the most technical wrestler but he's a very good concistent one. As a pure athlete, he's amazing.

These two would make the build up promo's alone truely EPIC. You get the feeling it would deliver in everyway Rock/Cena never did in the build up. HBK isn't Vince's blue eyed boy that needs to be kept safe and look good for the 10 year olds. HBK is a legend but doesn't have to be a robot. Being himself in a match that could be his last shot at the big time taking on arguably Wrestlings greatest ever Megastar would be incredible.

There is zero interest in Rock/Cena 2 and Punk is fading so fast from the limelight it's scary. It's got zero box office appeal. Besides, Austin is a better fit for Punk and hopefully Austin will decimate him.

For fans that grew up in The Attitude Era this will definately be THE MATCH of Next Years Mania. Nothing else will come close. Totally eclipsing the WWE Title bout which is a shame but that is the state of the business today.

Can you imagine if Rock actually grabs the title at The Rumble and then challenges HBK to finally face off at Mania............

Brock's return is becoming a real disaster. Rock V Brock 2 just doesn't get be jazzed up like The Ultimate Dream Match of Rock Vs HBK. HBK can truely stake his claim as 'Mr Wrestlemania' by beating the only man to beat Hogan, Austin and Cena at Mania. On the flip side Rock will be expected to win......

THAT is a true DREAM MATCH. I just can't believe that Vince/Rock and HBK won't look at it and think it's a match for the ages.

    First, I agree with DK in this should be in the Forum for an open debate.

    I see where you are coming from with the "Dream Match" aspect of it, but this match shouldn't happen for so many reasons (HBK retirement, Focusing a WM PPV around a previous era's desired match, etc) and the fact that you want the Rock who is out of the business and into the entertainment industry to become champion so he can drop the belt to a retired wrestler at WrestleMania... Wow. I understand the Attitude Era was great, but at this point wrestling needs to EVOLVE rather than regress. If we keep bringing up the Attitude Era and trying to recreate the Attitude Era, the industry will continue the decline it is currently in... Remember, WCW did this with the nWo, New Blood, etc. By recycling ideas from the past and pushing it to the current fan base will cause the Industry to continue the product and stories to spiral downward. My Opinion

    People are not acknowledging the fact that Undertaker Vs Me Can Dar Big Money...
    ...ok seriously lol..Hbk vs Rock wud be awesome .

    I've always said that, why has hbk vs rock never happened.I searched and ran into a Rock vs Bret Hart match .

    I very much doubt it would happen, as hbk has tons of respect for taker and wouldn't want to b a Ric flair.

    When I first read your blog, I was intrigued but didn't comment. But after seeing others comments and rereading it, I want to share my thought.

    First, punk isn't fading from the limelight imo. He is a great champ, the problem is wwe is shifting the focus of the wwe from the wwe championship, to john cena as the new center piece. Not punks fault.

    Next, both the rock and hbk are above the championship, as is john cena. That's why cena vs rock wasn't for the title. While hbk vs the rock would be a dream match id love to see, it would be stupid to have it for any championship, if it occured, it would be a pure grudge match.

    Next, if it were to occur, I doubt it would be at next years mania considering you have the rock, lesnar, taker, and john. They don't need another legend to make a huge show. If anything, id see this match taking place at wm 30

    Finally, there is a 99.9% chance it wont happen. Imo, shawn would have to want to do it, taker would have to be ok with it, and the rock would want to do it. I see 2 of those 3 things happening. I think shawns beyond the point of wrestling and damaging his body. The dude was active for a great number of years. Wanting shawn to come back and wrestle, while It would be something id love, just isn't likely,

    IMO shawn shouldn't wrestle again.. he is arguable the greatest wrestler to ever tie up a pair of boots and IMO put on two of the greatest matches in history to go out on top of the wrestling world and has nothing left to prove thus no reason to come back to face the rock.. while this would of been fun to watch during the prime of these guys' career I don't want to see shawn become flair or hogan... side note I don't get all the sudden hate for punk.. he is putting on great matches and good tv... that's all you can ask from a champion

    There is one solution to how this can play out as everyone brings up the retirement match. If Rock were to continually call out Shawn but HBK reminds us he promised to retire after his loss and doesn't want to be another Foley or Flair. Rock would have to go a little heel and try to provoke HBK until they have a face to face in the ring. Shawn still refuses, so then we here the "Gong' and down comes 'taker who glares at Micheals, grabs the mic, and turns to Rock and say's 'He accepts!'. Kinda reusing the rematch story for HHH vs 'taker, but think it would work well in this situation. But would it ever happen...

    I don't see where Punk is fading away- he, along with Bryan Danielson are about the only good things going in WWE. But to get to that matchup- yes- I'd love to see it too, if HBK were not retired of course. Its would have a better buildup as the actually have history with each other. The Rock/Cena buildup was so so, the match really not that bad. The Cena/Brock buildup was pretty good- the outcome of it? rushed

    You yourself need to get it out of your head that the rock and Steve Austin are great, punk would either have to let Austin win or work with him greatly, and there are no signs of punk fading at all, if anything he's going forward
