10 WWE Matches That Were Too Epic To Fail (Yet Somehow Still Did)

But, but, but, it was a 'dream match'...

Despite it now feeling like WWE actively go out of their way to set us up for a fall, it is always worth remembering that this is the same company which has produced some of the most important and iconic moments in all of wrestling history.

Through countless eras Vince McMahon's empire has found a way to create magic and has delivered matches that will undoubtedly be studied by the next generation of wrestling fanatics.

Yet, for every jaw-dropping showstopper there will always be a highly anticipated dud waiting right around the corner and this is why it can be a frustrating old life for a fan of the consistently inconsistent world of WWE.

A potentially legendary encounter can fall short of that coveted status for a number of reasons. Stars fluffing their lines on the night, the wrestlers on show not being given the time their feud deserved or even expectations being set unfairly high for an eventual blow-off have all led to fans ultimately feeling disappointed once the bout reached its conclusion.

These ten super fights should've gone down in WWE history as legitimate classics, but they instead just left us wondering how it could all go so wrong.

10. Dean Ambrose Vs Brock Lesnar (WrestleMania 32)

Contrary to popular belief, Brock Lesnar actually quite enjoys being a pro wrestler and he's one of the very best to ever do it on his day.

What often tends to be the problem, however, is getting Lesnar motivated enough to put on the sort of performance we've seen against stars like AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan and The Undertaker since his return in 2012.

When he's not into something, it bloody shows and it did on the night of WrestleMania 32 during his No Holds Barred Street Fight Vs Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose had spent weeks teasing the use of a variety of vicious weapons in their upcoming match - from a barbed wire baseball bat to an actual chainsaw - so fans were rightfully excited about the level of carnage they would surely see go down inside of AT&T Stadium.

Yet, the match never really took off and Ambrose later admitted to 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin that 'Artistically, Brock didn’t want to do anything, if we’re going to be perfectly honest.'

This had the makings to be one of the most creative brawls in 'Mania history, involving two of the company's most over stars at that time. Sadly, all we got was a sh*t ton of suplexes and a severe lack of any real barbed wire or chainsaw chaos.
