5 WWE dream matches that happened way too late
If you ask a wrestling fan about dream matches, there's no shortage of answers.
What would have happened if Shawn Michaels had tackled Eddie Guerrero in 2006 at WrestleMania 22? Or who would have emerged victorious in an encounter between arguably two biggest icons of wrestling: Hulk Hogan or Steve Austin?
And though some dream matches will never happen, some have, though only a handful have lived up to the hype.
Here are five WWE dream matches that unfortunately took place way too late and really should have just remained a dream.
#5: Mr McMahon Vs. Bret 'Hitman' Hart (WWE WrestleMania 26)
When Bret Hart was done dirty in Montreal in November 1997, fans were rightly shocked.
A moment that would forever change wrestling, the incident proved that no WWE Superstar could truly trust Vince McMahon, even those who had remained loyal for so long.
So when WCW folded a few years later, fans waited for the imminent return of the Hitman to get revenge on his former boss, who had since risen to even greater prominence in the WWF as arguably the greatest villain on screen.
And then fans waited, and waited, and followed that up with waiting some more. By the time the duo finally clashed at WrestleMania 26, both men had aged considerably.
Hart had been retired for nearly a decade after suffering a concussion in 2000, so there was very little the match could bring to the table.
Though the match (which Hart won), is probably the best bout the pair could have delivered, fans can't help but wonder just how great it'd have been to see back when both were at their peaks both physically and as characters.
