There was a WWE dream match that may have been desired by the legendary Sting against The Undertaker, but “The Deadman” may not have wanted it. The two legendary superstars of the professional wrestling ring were rumored for a while to have an impending WrestleMania clash in the works, but Sting found his career cut a bit short due to an in-ring injury. Meanwhile, Taker seems as if he may be done with his career as well. Still, Sting recounted that he had discussions with Taker regarding the two going one-on-one.
Sting joined the WWE in 2014 after finally coming to terms with head honcho Vince McMahon. He ended up participating in a few segments and made a big return to help Dolph Ziggler win a pivotal Survivor Series match. He also teamed up with John Cena for a tag team match on Raw. Sting later faced Seth Rollins in the main event at Night of Champions 2015 pay-per-view. Unfortunately, during that matchup, Sting was injured during a Rollins’ “Buckle Bomb” move against the ring corner. It ended up cutting The Icon’s career with WWE short and may have left fans wondering what may have happened if he had stayed relatively healthy. “The Icon” Sting was in Dubai to help promote the WWE 2K18 video game. While there he spoke with Al Arabiya about the dream match that many fans seemed to be interested in.
During his interview, Sting talked about the conversation he and Undertaker had regarding a possible match.
“We’ve had a brief conversation, and I just told him, I said, man, I just always wanted to have that match. It wasn’t necessarily reciprocated so I’m not sure where he stands or if he had any interest at all, to be quite honest. But I did. I don’t mind saying.”
As mentioned, Sting has pretty much ruled out any further competition in the WWE ring. As far as The Undertaker, it’s unknown where he’s at career-wise, but many fans believe that his match at WrestleMania 33 against Roman Reigns was his final time in the ring. During that bout, he suffered a defeat, his second on “the grandest stage of them all.” There have been lingering rumors that Taker might return for some sort of involvement in another storyline now that his brother Kane has returned, but that remains to be seen.
That said, at their current ages, a pro wrestling match featuring Sting and The Undertaker probably wouldn’t have delivered. Several years ago, the hype would have been there, but at this point, most fans will have to play that “dream match” out in the WWE 2K18 video game.
