10 WrestleMania Main Events That Should Have Happened

The main event of Wrestlemania 30 has been booked to keep fans guessing. Unlike many years in the past, this year's main event isn't set in stone. Most people are expecting Daniel Bryan to join Randy Orton and Batista, but Triple H is also in the mix to join the title bout.

So with the main event of WM in mind, I decided to put together a list of 'Mania main events that almost happened, but never did. Enjoy:

Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels II

This match almost happened at WM 13, but Michaels ultimately pulled out of the event with a knee injury. It's a shame things didn't turn out differently, because Hart and Michaels could have easily main-evented three 'Manias.

These two just weren't around at the same time. It's a match that still could happen, but Stone Cold has never legitimately seemed interested in a comeback match.

The two biggest stars of the current generation have never faced off on the biggest stage. To me, that's just not right. If Punk ever comes back, this match needs to happen at WM.

Michaels returned to WWE just as the Rock was leaving in the early 2000s. Can you imagine how good a program between the two legends would have been?

Kurt Angle vs. Undertaker

The story goes that Taker pitched losing to Angle at WM 22, but that Vince shot it down. Taker fought Mark Henry and Angle left the company a short time later. Boo.

Austin vs. CM Punk

This is the modern day dream match for pro wrestling junkies. This feud and match would be off the charts and there's no doubt it would headline the grand daddy of them all.

Hart seems to think the Hogan was afraid to get in the ring with him back in the day. It was the match that made the most sense when WWF was changing eras in 1994, but things never got ironed out enough to make the match happen. Because of this, WM IX remains one of the worst of all time.

Undertaker vs. Sting

This dream match could still happen and it could happen in 2015. If Sting ever has a WM match, it has to be against the Dead Man. One guy was the poster child for WCW, the other has carried the WWE torch for two decades.

Flair vs. Hogan

Flair versus Hogan should have happened at WM VIII, but instead we got Flair/Savage. There's no way the Hogan/Flair match would have been as good bell-to-bell, but we all know that it should have happened. 'The face of WWE meets the face of NWA'. It couldn't have gotten any bigger back in 1992.

WWE opted to go with Hogan vs. Rock instead of Austin/Hogan. Hogan/Rock was epic, but that doesn't mean Austin/Hogan wouldn't have been the same, if not bigger. At least we got one of the faces of the attitude era against the original face of WWF.
