The phrase 'better late than never' tends to apply to quite a lot of titanic showdowns throughout the history of pro wrestling.
When the Hulk Hogan vs. Bret Hart ship seemed to have sailed, wrestling found a way to make it so. When we never thought we'd see The Rock grace a WWE ring again, wrestling made sure it happened not once, but twice in a lifetime at WrestleMania against John Cena.
But, just because we got there in the end doesn't mean that the end product was worth the wait.
Many times throughout the vast history of the predetermined sport we've seen epic showdowns fall flat on their *rse once they're finally willed into existence.
Sometimes these eventual dream matches contained stars that were simply too old to go anymore. Yet, on other occasions the momentum of the talents involved had been well and truly extinguished by the time the historic duel actually took place.
I suppose we should all just be thankful that these clashes ultimately found their way onto our screens in the end. However, you can't help but wonder what kind of spectacle could have been put on had any one of these following ten bouts been booked long before they finally made it onto TV.
