5. Edge vs. Christian
Another "Brother vs Brother" storyline which we have seen, for the most part pretty successfully a few times before like with Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart, Kane vs. Undertaker, and most recently, Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy. After Edge and Christian split having been one of the most successful tag teams in history, it became clear who the more successful singles competitor would be, as Christian never could quite reach the plateau of success that Edge would. We saw Christian leave the company twice, and both times going to rival company, TNA. It was not until Edge retired that we would see Christian reach the world title status that Edge was so familiar with throughout his career.
4. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels
You might want to get used to seeing HBK on this list. Yes, Triple H and Shawn Michaels have been involved in a couple WrestleMania matches together, but not once in a singles match which I don't know about you, but it bothers me even if the forgotten classic at 'Maina 20 is as awesome as it is (and is). Outside of a couple involvements in storyline, and a match they had plenty of matches together and a rivalry that lasted forever, or so it seems. Oh, and not to mention the formation of one of Pro Wrestling's best tag teams, D-Generation X.
3. The Undertaker vs. Sting
So even if this match does end up happening, I realize it would not carry the magnitude it once would have, as the streak is no longer intact. That does not take away from everything else that these two legends completed throughout their career, though. For quite some time, the Icon "Sting" who many fans draw comparison to in character to the Deadman, tried signing with the major leagues, the WWE but it was not until 2014 that Sting finally joined. I think I speak for most wrestling fans when I say that ever since the streak became a thing, it was a fantasy match for the grandest stage of them all.
2. Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Savage
Michaels, who arguably is the greatest WrestleMania performer of all time did not exactly start his career out making classics at WrestleMania right away, believe it or not. Once he was no longer one of the Rockers, and became The Heartbreak Kid, he would enjoy midcard gold. He didn't the chance to have a match with an established wrestler, which would have sped up a jolt to the top. Michaels' first single bout at 'Mania was against Tito Santana. The match didn't have crowds talking like his others did, or one against Randy Savage would have. You have, probably two of the biggest egos at the time, and a clash of two of the largest superstars. Likewise, Savage was en route out of the organization, while Michaels was just climbing the ladder to the top.
1. Shawn Michaels vs. The Rock
How this match didn't happen I do not quite understand, I mean I know Michaels left the company in '98, which was when The Rock was in the prime of his wrestling career, but they were still in the same company together at the same time for a while. Much like Michaels, The Rock has had some epic clashes on the grandest stage of them all, and has made a career of WrestleMania moments, like his most famous three against rival, the Texas Rattle Snake, Stone Cold Steve Austin (WM15, 17, 19) and his other two coming against legends Hulk Hogan (18) and John Cena (28, 29).
