5 dream matches and why WWE cancelled them
On June 7th, WWE will host another one of their shows in Saudi Arabia. The event will feature a string of matches, but one bout stands above the rest: Goldberg vs The Undertaker. The match was recently announced by WWE and this is the first time the two legends will go one on one inside the squared circle.
Although this one's a bit late, we're finally getting this fantasy match after waiting for around two decades. But this isn't always the case. Over the course of the past several years, fans have clamored for a bunch of dream encounters. Unfortunately, not every match comes to fruition. There have been multiple encounters in the past that almost happened, but last minute changes prevented those matches from taking place.
In the following list, we'll take a look at five dream matches that never happened, and we'll take a detailed look at the reasons why we never got to see these bouts unfold.

#5 Shawn Michaels vs The Rock
This is one of those Attitude Era pairings that we never saw collide in the ring. When The Rock was an up and comer in WWE, he was slated to job to Bret Hart at an event. Bret refused, stating that it won't do any good for Rocky Maivia. This didn't sit well with Triple H and Shawn Michaels, who wasn't exactly a popular duo backstage.
When Michaels returned to WWE in 2002, he was originally scheduled to go at it against The Brahma Bull. This didn't happen though, as The Rock refused to work with the guy who held him back during his early days in WWE. This match had the potential to headline a WrestleMania, but unfortunately, it'll always remain a pipe dream.
