So, this isn't one of my regular blogs. Yesterday, I went to WWE.com to see if there was any events coming to my area, and I saw their video about top 10 fantasy matches. With this blog, I am going to talk about those matches. Here we go!
CM Punk vs Randy Savage
Now, this would be an interesting match up. I never saw Savage in his prime as I wasn't a fan then, but I have rewatched matches. I think the in ring work between these two would be some top notch stuff. What I'd be even more intrigued by is what the mic work would be like between these two. I think this would be a great feud that would easily main event a PPV like the Rumble or Survivor Series or Summerslam. I'd be pulling for Savage in this one.
Mankin vs Cactus Jack vs Dude Love
Now, we all know this could never EVER happen, but, for purpose sake, if it somehow could, this would be interesting. You have three men who are complete opposites of one another. I would personally be pulling for Mankin, as he was my favorite of the three personalities of Foley.
Moolah vs Trish Stratus
Now, I can honestly say I have never ever seen a Moolah match. But, I do know she helped pioneer the women's division in the WWE, and was a staple of it. Then you have Stratus who was a big part in the 90's, 00's. I think Moolah in her prime vs Stratus would be leaps and bounds above even the best diva's match we get today. I'd be pulling for Stratus for it.
Evolution vs The Four Horseman
Another match that would be an improbability considering Flair was in both. Though you can't deny the fact that both stables though had a big part in wrestling. I would be pulling for Evolution here.
Big Show vs Andre the Giant
I know others have talked about this match in the past. My only problem with it, is that neither of them are great big guys. This would be one of those matches, where they'd hit a few big moves, scoop slams, ect on each other, as feats of strength. While it would be cool to see Show body slam Andre or Andre slam Show, this isn't something that would be a selling point for me on a PPV.
Road Warriors vs Dudley Boys
This would be an interesting match. You have two teams who have been in numerous federations, and held numerous tag titles. Granted they were a part of different eras, there is no denying the impact both teams had on the wrestling world. I'd be pulling for the Dudleys in this one.
Kurt Angle vs Bret Hart-I Quit Match
Now this would be a classic. I'd imagine it like Hart vs Austin from WM 13, but more technical. I think we would easily get a 5 star match from this, if Hart were in his prime. I would be pulling for Hart in this one.
Sting vs The Undertaker
I find this match interesting, for a specific point which Ill get to at the end. While this is a fantasy match, it is one that could still happen, if the stars aligned. Here is my only problem though. I don't see the appeal in this match asides from the fact that it would be a good match. Yes i get Taker is a staple of the WWE, and Sting was a staple of WCW, but I don't see this as being a larger than life type match, like some of the others on this list. still though, it would be a good match. I'd be pulling for Sting in this one.
The Rock vs Shawn Michaels
Now this would be my pick off of the list. I am a Rock fan, and a Shawn Michaels mark. This is a match I wish would still happen, but know it wouldn't. I think this match would be great for the fact you have The Rock, one of the best talkers in the WWE, and Shawn, one of the best in ring performers. In the aspect of reversal, Rock is good in the ring, and Shawn is good on the mic. I feel like this feud would be epic in the sense that the only place it could main event would be Wrestlemania. I would be pulling for Shawn Michaels in this one.
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Hulk Hogan
First you have a man who helped revolution the wrestling industry in the 80's and 90's. Then you have another man who was the forefront of a whole era. Here is video footage from the WWE video they had showing Austin stunning Hogan.
Now I have no idea what that was from, but, I will admit, this match would have been interesting to see. Granted it wouldn't have been anything 5 star worthy, I think it would have been similar to Cena vs Rock. Era vs Era, with a decent match. I'd be pulling for Hogan here.
Now, this is the part I was referencing to in the Sting/Taker spot. I find it funny, that they included Sting/Taker, but, they didn't include another fantasy match, a fantasy match that in recent years fans have been calling for. Austin vs Punk. Does that mean it will happen? Personally, I think signs point to yes. With Austin recently getting surgery, Punk turning heel, I feel like the stars are starting to align for this match to occur. I just hope and pray it does.
Well, that is it! I look forward to everyone's thoughts and comments!
