After being in the wrestling business for nearly three decades, Sting finally made his debut in WWE in November of 2014. But, his arrival didn’t set up the match that everyone hoped it would.

When Sting debuted his crow gimmick in WCW, everyone began to wonder what it’d be like if he and The Undertaker wrestled. But, both men remained in their respective organizations, and when WCW was purchased by Vince McMahon in the spring of 2001, Sting decided to not make the jump to WWE.

After taking a hiatus from the wrestling business, Sting popped up in TNA/Impact Wrestling in the mid 2000s, and he remained a part of the organization until early 2014. Meanwhile, The Undertaker was having some of the best matches in WWE history on the company’s grandest stage.

When Sting arrived in WWE, many were hoping that the company would make the dream match between him and The Undertaker a reality, but instead, they booked The Icon against Triple H.

Then, in September of 2015, they booked Sting in a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Seth Rollins, which will probably end up being the last match of The Icon’s career.

Following the match with Rollins, we learned that Sting was suffering from a condition called spinal stenosis, which is a condition that ended the careers of Edge and Stone Cold Steve Austin.


During his WWE Hall of Fame speech earlier this year, Sting officially announced his retirement. But, he would later go on to say that he was still hoping that WWE would be interested in putting him in the ring with The Undertaker at some point.

While appearing on the Talking Cowboys podcast, Sting was asked about returning to the ring for a match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, and while he is still interested in doing the match, he doesn’t think that it will ever happen.

“I think wrestling fans, it’s a dream match for them, it’s a dream match for me too, but I just don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Sadly, the match with Undertaker probably wasn’t going to happen even if Sting never got hurt, because Vince McMahon didn’t like the idea of the match.

Sting is three years away from turning 60 years old, and with his neck in the shape it’s in, it’s probably pretty safe to assume that we’ll never see The Icon return to the ring.
