The Big Show vs Floyd Mayweather. Cody Rhodes vs Stephen Amell. Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Mike Tyson.

World Wrestling Entertainment doesn't always pit wrestler vs wrestler, they sometimes get creative with their booking and look for outside influence to help boost their ratings or to help add an element of spice to their product.

Mayweather and Tyson coming from other sports, and Amell coming from Hollywood, just goes to show how WWE can use big names outside of professional wrestling to help boost their shows.

Next year's WrestleMania will be no different either, with Big Show set to go one-on-one with basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal.

However, WWE haven't stopped there, and on their official website, they have put together four rather imaginative matches putting some of the top superstars up against some of the top athletes around the sporting world.

Now, of course, this must be taken lightly because the chances of these matches actually happening are very slim, but you know what they say about WWE, never say never.

The first match they put together saw Seth Rollins go up against basketball star LeBron James.

Rollins, who thinks he is the best WWE superstar there currently is going, sharing the ring with probably the greatest basketball player currently playing the game.

The ring would struggle to contain the two egos to start with, but it certainly would be a show-stealer and an instant sell-out.

Up next, John Cena, the face that runs the place, going one-on-one against NFL superstar Tom Brady.

Arguably the greatest WWE superstar ever facing arguably the greatest quarterback ever. It certainly would see WWE's golden boy battle it out with one of NFL's icons, and once again, it would certainly be a crowd pleaser.

Of course, with the women's revolution taking over WWE, there needs to be a dream women's match, and that would see Charlotte take on tennis legend Serena Williams.

The test of strength and the battle of two powerhouses would certainly make for a physical encounter. A Flair chop vs a Serena backhand would certainly be one to watch.

Lastly, Roman Reigns vs Conor McGregor. This one really doesn't even need explaining.

WWE's new favourite going up against the controversial, outspoken UFC superstar. Given Reigns' promo skills, you'd certainly allow the Irishman to run the segments and the feud, but once the talking is done, it would be another physical ad brutal encounter.

Reigns was one of the superstars to react to McGregor's comments about the WWE roster a few months ago.

WrestleMania 34, anybody?
