It’s the dream match every adult wrestling fan wants to see, for years the WWE and Sting tried to reach an agreement and The Icon has now given a clear indication that he’s open to one more match…against The Undertaker.
He has never stepped inside a WWE ring in his illustrious career and was quoted as saying: “I’m all for it.” – When asked about a match in the WWE.
This past week on Monday Night Raw we were treated to an incredible WWE 2K15 teaser for Sting, with the orchestra as we reported months ago, but it looks as if Sting will compete inside the virtual ring on our consoles as well as one final match in his wrestling career.
Speaking to The Mirror, Sting talked about the big 2K15 announcement and as expected questions were asked about a match in the WWE, something every fan would ask him.
He mentioned that it was either now or never in regards to joining the company that won the Monday Night Wars, and that although he has achieved a lot in his career the one thing he hasn’t done is wrestle or be a part of the WWE family.
Sting went on to mention that he wants to have one last hurrah and didn’t hide who he wants to face, The Undertaker. He knew what happened with Brock Lesnar and the fact that he broke the streak but he still hopes that The Deadman would come back for one final match with Sting; something the fans will want to witness.
As he sang The Undertaker’s praises, referring to him as a phenomenon and that he’s maintained a status in wrestling and the WWE as a whole that is second to none. He suggested that San Francisco, 2015, in April would be an ideal destination for this match to take place.
It’s not only a match, he also mentioned that he would definitely agree to a Hall of Fame induction as it would be something he couldn’t turn down.
Sting has appeared on the WWE Network multiple times, sharing some of his memories of the late Ultimate Warrior in tribute specials, and it also looks as if Sting has been keeping up to date with the latest WWE product.
He singled out Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt as great talents, with Bryan being labelled an unreal talent, Roman Reigns has all the ability and has all the talent to become on the greatest – a very hold statement but who are we to judge – and said Bray Wyatt is an unbelievable talent on the microphone and in the ring, and a very physical guy. A lot of praise for three of the current best; and has always wanted to work with The Rock, John Cena and Randy Orton.
However, he believes that realistically his one final dream match would be against The Undertaker – something even he believes is a popular option amongst wrestling fanatics.
Vince McMahon was unable to secure a deal with Sting for the last decade or so, but it looks as if negotiations with Triple H have been going well and we could finally see The Icon inside a WWE ring.
Fans have their reservations and it is understandable, they aren’t getting any younger and aren’t in the best of shapes but it is the spectacle as a whole which makes it special. It doesn’t matter if the streak is broken because Sting vs. The Undertaker is the biggest dream match in professional wrestling, period.
If it happens, thousands of fans will purchase the WWE Network to witness it, imagine the reactions and the legacy it will leave if Sting comes down in his original Crow attire and theme music whilst The Undertaker comes down in his 1990’s attire, the last ride for both men and it doesn’t even matter who wins; they’re legends.
It will make money and leave memories.
