Brock Lesnar is an undisputed legend. The Beast Incarnate burst onto the scene of every combat arena he has stepped into.

Brock Lesnar, a legitimate once-in-a-lifetime sporting phenomenon, brings a big-fight feel every time he's in the ring.

A great match can help put talent on the map, but a great match against Lesnar is a surefire way of cementing yourself in WWE.

Fans today are aware of the predetermined format of wrestling, but Brock is a legitimate fighter who has held gold in UFC.

The Beast burst onto the scene in WWE and UFC as quickly as he dominated the NCAA. He's a fast achiever and a genuine conqueror. Lesnar has amassed a high-profile list of scalps and still has plenty of dream matches awaiting.

But some dream matches were never realized. Here are some legends who escaped the grasp of Brock Lesnar.

#5. Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Savage


Brock Lesnar, without a doubt, could've been an innovative villain for the likes of Randy Savage.

Savage had the charisma of Hulk Hogan but with the better in-ring ability and a penchant for telling a convincing story.

All it took for Savage to produce magic was an enemy to foil. Lesnar would've fit the bill perfectly. A powerhouse villain, he would've allowed Savage to assume the role of the passionate underdog.

Lesnar would've made it look like Savage bit off more than he can chew. Savage and Lesnar would've been a story of overcoming sheer dominance and savagery.

Randy Savage used to present fairytales in the ring and tell stories that gripped fans. Brock Lesnar would've been the perfect villain for Randy Savage.

#4. Brock Lesnar vs. Hulk Hogan


Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena works because the beast is to be slain by a hero.

John Cena has been WWE's serial superhero and, as a result, is the answer when WWE needs someone to battle the top villain. However, in the past, Hulk Hogan was the top babyface in wrestling.

Brock Lesnar would've been the perfect villain for someone like Hulk Hogan. The all-conquering Beast vs. The Immortal Hulk Hogan would've been one for the ages.

As with Goldberg, a Hulk Hogan dream match with Brock Lesnar would've been a match of a few moves of great magnitude. The big-fight feel would've been enough to capture the fans' attention.

#3. Brock Lesnar vs. Ken Shamrock


Brock Lesnar is someone you know can destroy the very best of the WWE roster. This is due to his legitimate fight appeal. Lesnar has showcased his fighting ability by beating some of the very best names in MMA.

As a result, Lesnar is someone who has to have a believable foe. So, there's a single pool of competitors fans look to while creating lists of dream matches for the man who beat The Undertaker's streak. Ken Shamrock is one such man.

Shamrock casn legitimately take on Brock Lesnar and produce a fighting spectacle opposite the former UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Brock Lesnar vs. Ken Shamrock would been an Infinity War-level event putting relentless pressure on the walls between the two sports.

#2. Brock Lesnar vs. Bruiser Brody


Brock Lesnar is a legitimate sensation. His combat pedigree creates a superstar aura that truly catches the fans' imaginations. In this respect, Brock shares a resemblance to wrestling legend Bruiser Brody.

Bruiser Brody would tear through the crowd swinging a chain, scaring spectators out of their seats and creating an everlasting impression as a legitimate beast.

Bruiser Brody was similar to Brock in the respect that both were dedicated to making their craft feel legitimate. Both Brock Lesnar and Bruiser Brody transform wrestling matches into fights.

The organic feel of the two characters at play would've added to the battle aura between The Beast Incarnate and Bruiser Brody. The story of two behemoths colliding in the ring and telling explosive tales of destruction.

#1. Brock Lesnar vs. Steve Austin


In an alternate timeline, Brock Lesnar and Steve Austin forged a rivalry of granite and steel. It's a real shame that the two monstrous talents never battled.

Brock Lesnar's explosion onto the scene came at just the wrong time in a case of wrestling irony. The prospect of Brock Lesnar vs. Steve Austin is so touted that it has been referenced in countless scenarios.

They have had run-ins which have added to the anticipation around the dream collision between Austin and Lesnar. Like Brock Lesnar, Steve Austin was never one to leave anything unsaid in the ring. He would craft meaningful in-ring stories with some of the greatest names.

Brock Lesnar carries the torch Steve Austin possessed as the BMF of WWE. It's saddening we never had the chance to see them battle in a brutal brawl.
