Why has no enterpeneur ever thought of making those "dream cards" we all crave?

I was wondering recently, with all this talk of Undertaker vs. Sting at Wrestlemania, if it didn't happen, could some enterprising businessman create a one-off event pitting the two against each other once they've retired from active competition for one final match, with Big fight-style build-up similar to a massive Boxing event, instead of a weekly-storyline based build-up?

In short, I'm asking why no bright spark has thought to create a one-off Big fight supercard with all the dream matches you so dearly want to see on PPV. I'm sure most of the superstars in retirement would be willing to come back for one night and a big paycheck, don't you?

Is it just the ton of money involved in running such an event, because I'm sure an event with matches like Hogan vs. Austin would pull in astronomical buyrates and a massive attendance and make a ton of moolah.

Heroes of Wrestling was one such scenario and it flopped, the investor is in it for the money so they might as well put that money into WWE stocks

It will still depend on who's going to promote and fund the whole event, if there's any. Other than WWE, TNA, etc.

If a promoter came along and did ONE event with the DREAM CARD, there would be several problems... The price of advertising and promotion to let everyone know its happening, having the capital to book million dollar wrestlers and buildings/ health and safety/ pyro/ etc, also whos dream card is it? Half the people who read the advert might just think 'meh that isn't my dream card'... those are all the reasons I can be bothered to state.
