WWE recently teased the hell out of a future match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura. That’s an obvious dream match, so it got me thinking about some other great matches I’d like to see in WWE. Here are my top 5!
5. Charlotte vs. Asuka
Unless Asuka never graduates from NXT for whatever reason, or unless she and Charlotte are perpetually kept on separate brands, it seems inevitable that this match will happen. And just think about how fantastic it will be: the longest-reigning modern WWE champion of any kind vs. the progeny of the Nature Boy? Two of the most naturally gifted women wrestlers WWE has seen in decades? Gallant robes galore? Shut up and take my money!
4. Neville vs. Pete Dunne
If you’re perplexed as to what these two are doing on this list, the answer is simple: I love cruiserweight wrestling and Neville and Pete Dunne are the cream of the crop.
Time for a match I reckon https://t.co/uJ1ZorcQVz
— Pete Dunne (@PeteDunneYxB) May 23, 2017
Neville’s career has undergone a complete revival since he returned from injury; he’s the current and longest-reigning WWE Cruiserweight Champion and one of the best villains on the roster. Dunne, meanwhile, is the current WWE United Kingdom Champion and the current Progress Wrestling World Champion.
The only downside to this feud is that one of them would have to turn face for it to happen, and they’re both such phenomenal baddies that I don’t want either of them to turn face. Ever.
3. CM Punk vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin
Mark my words: this match will never happen. But it would be so incredibly amazing if it did.
CM Punk and Stone Cold Steve Austin are the two greatest WWE anti-heroes of all time, while simultaneously being complete opposites of one another. Seriously, the rivalry practically writes itself: Punk is a straight-edge, well, punk, and Stone Cold is a beer-guzzling redneck. The promos alone they would cut on each other… I’m salivating just at the thought.
2. Seth Rollins vs. Kenny Omega
If you read my article about five of the best wrestlers who don’t work for WWE, you know that I love Kenny Omega. And if Kenny Omega ever does sign with WWE, I hope beyond hope that he has a feud with Seth Rollins.
Rollins and Omega have similar styles and personalities – hell, Rollins even stole Omega’s finisher – and I can just see them trying to one-up each other the whole way. Besides, with so many ex-Bullet Club members in WWE, it’d be the perfect opportunity for a faction war between a revived Shield and Omega’s old pals. Man, now I want this to happen even more.
1. Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles
Before you jump to the comments to correct me: yes, AJ Styles and Seth Rollins have already wrestled each other. However, they haven’t faced off one-on-one on television in WWE – and isn’t that what we all want?
These two have history, and that alone would generate a ton of emotion and potential for this feud. Add in the fact that they’re two of the best wrestlers in the world, and this match has “WrestleMania” written all over it.
These are just five of my dream matches; there are certainly many others that I would like to see.
