I will be out of town and away from my computer during most of this week. I asked that someone post this column for me because I would not be able to do it. I will not review a wrestling match this week, but I wanted to write something so I did this quick column. The topic is matches that we thought we would never see, but they really did happen. I think I got the idea for this column when I saw someone write that it’s too bad that Edge will never face Daniel Bryan because Edge is retired. Someone replied that Edge did face Bryan and it happened on RAW on September 20, 2010. There are a lot of dream matches that never happened. Andre The Giant vs. Big Show. Shawn Michaels vs. The Rock. Kurt Angle vs. Bret Hart. There are also a lot of dream matches that did happen. Most people remember The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan or Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels, but there are others that you may not know about. Did you know a Triple H vs. Bret Hart match happened? Click HERE and you can watch their match. I just recently found out a Mr. Perfect vs. Shawn Michaels match happened at SummerSlam. That match is HERE.
