NXT vs WWE: 15 Matches We Want to See

The WWE brand split is coming. Well, it's coming back. This is technically WWE Brand Split 2: the Quest for More Money (and Ratings). Still, it's exciting times around the E! Smackdown's going live on July 19 and the draft will be held on the same night. Reports have run wild that NXT will be raided to help fill the main roster with talent. That means many of your favorite NXT superstars, such as Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bayley, and more, will be heading up to Raw and Smackdown, where they'll make much way money, but also be subjected to much more confusing booking.

Regardless of the effects it'll have on NXT, the brand split's sure to spice up WWE TV through the dreary summer months, and thanks to the influx of talent coming up, there's an increased potential for fresh rivalries and dream matches. Do you want to see Finn Balor and AJ Styles have some kind of Bullet Club reunion feud? It could happen! What about various non-WWE wrestling megastars, like Samoa Joe or Shinsuke Nakamura, feuding with John Cena the way Kevin Owens did and AJ Styles is? It's high likely; eventually, Cena comes for everyone! Do you want to see Bayley and Sasha Banks re-visit their feud from NXT? Of course you do, you're a human person with a soul! So, without further ado, step into the WWE Dream Booking Machine (TM) and see 15 fantastic matches that could, and should, happen in the near future!

Here it is, the biggest, craziest, once-in-a-lifetime dream match of dream matches the WWE could pull off with their current roster: John Cena vs. Shinsuke Nakamura. The Doctor of Thuganomics vs. The King of Strong Style. WWE vs. NJPW. It wouldn't be quite as electrifying as the John Cena - Rock feud from Wrestlemania 28 (then 29, which was 1000% less awesome), but it would be far superior in terms of in ring quality. Shinsuke Nakamura may very well be the best wrestler on the current roster and John Cena has always been an underrated worker, proving in the last few years that he can go with anyone (Also, remember how good his match with CM Punk was at Money in the Bank 2011?). Their matches would be hard hitting, as both men are gifted strikers, and the fans would eat up every second of it. It wouldn't be as technical as Nakamura's matches with Sami Zayn or Austin Aries, but very few people can tell a story quite like John Cena.
