Sting is one of the of the most beloved professional wrestlers of all time and he will be retiring this week. Ahead of this retirement bout, Sting talked about a match that never happened – a bout with The Undertaker, as he stated that he feels the match would have been unforgettable.

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 never happened and it will forever remain one of wrestling’s biggest ‘what if’ moments.

While speaking to Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports, Sting talked about him never squaring off against The Undertaker in WWE. The Icon noted that if done right, the match would have been something no one would have forgotten.

I think if it was done right, it could have been a night, for sure, everyone would remember and never forget. They would be talking about it to this day. But it just was not going to happen. I thought, ‘Well, maybe if I get my foot in the door, we’ll see what happens.’ So I got my foot in the door. We did a WrestleMania with Triple H and then Vince [Vince McMahon] called and said, ‘Hey, I want you to have a world title match with Seth. Would you be willing to do that?’ ‘Yeah, I’d be willing to do that.’ Still, in hopes that somehow I could get in there with Taker.”


I had so many ideas over the years. A lot of times, smoke and mirrors aren’t good things. But in our situation, I think with his gimmick and the mystiques of his character and mine, we couldn’t have enough smoke and mirrors. I think it definitely would have been a night that people remembered. Man, I would have loved to have seen that. If I could have had that match alone, I would have been great. I wouldn’t have had to do anything else.”

Sting had also pitched an idea for the cinematic match against the Undertaker, but WWE rejected it. While The Undertaker is enjoying his life in retirement, Sting is set to retire at AEW Revolution this week, so we’ll have to see how his final match will turn out.
