For over twenty years, pro wrestling fans have always wanted The Undertaker and Sting to square off against each other inside the ring. When Sting made his debut in WWE back in 2014, fans were hopeful that they would finally get to see the dream match happen. However, that was not the case.
The Undertaker ended his in-ring career last year at the Survivor Series pay-per-view, while Sting is currently working in AEW and plans on ending his career there. The likelihood of the two ever facing off is essentially not possible now.
While speaking to Paste Magazine. Sting was asked about the reason why a match against The Deadman never took place. Sting stated that to this day he still doesn’t know the real reason why before adding that it might be because The Undertaker himself didn’t want to face him in a match.
“No. No. To this day, I honestly don’t know. I don’t even know, it could be Taker. Maybe Taker just never really wanted to work with me. Maybe they brought it up and he kind of snubbed his nose and said he didn’t really want to do that. For whatever reason, even though Taker and I have always gotten along great. I don’t think he has issues with me, I certainly don’t have any issues with him. I just have a great amount of respect for him. But I have no idea why that match never happened.”
Sting had also pitched an idea for a cinematic match against the Undertaker, but WWE rejected it. While The Undertaker is enjoying his life in retirement, Sting is currently to team up with Darby Allin and face off against Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page in a tag team match.
