It has been almost a year since Sting faced Seth Rollins at Night of Champions back in 2015 for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
This match was not supposed to be Sting's final WWE match and despite the fact that he retired at the 2016 Hall of Fame ceremony, he is still holding out for one final match.
Sting was a guest on Legends with JBL this past week and he told the WWE Commentator that he is avoiding the neck surgery that he needs because he knows that would be the end of his career. Sting is still holding out for the match that the WWE Universe have been waiting more than a decade for.

STING VS UNDERTAKER
At 57-years-old Sting is still hopeful that WWE will allow him to face Undertaker in a match that the WWE Universe have been chanting for since he signed with the company in 2014. Sting said that he was aware of the chants and is open to a match with the Deadman but it seems WWE may not be.
It was speculated that Undertaker himself would retire in his home state of Texas at WrestleMania earlier this year, but instead his future with the company is also up in the air. With his wife and former WWE Divas Champion Michelle McCool recently being diagnosed with skin cancer, it is thought that Undertaker would be spending some time away from the company to help to care for his family.
Until Undertaker officially announces his retirement then a return from The Deadman will always be rumored, but it is highly unlikely before WrestleMania season next year.
STING'S NECK INJURY
Sting retired earlier this year after it was announced that he was suffering from spinal stenosis, the same condition that forced 11-time World Champion Edge to retire back in 2011.
Sting told JBL that he hasn't had the neck surgery that he requires yet because he knows that would be the end of his career. The injury only came to light after he took Seth Rollins 'Buckle Bomb' in their match and it caused him a considerable amount of pain.
It doesn't seem likely that WWE are willing to book the match between the two wrestling legends, but given that the WWE Universe are eagerly awaiting the match up themselves, the only person that needs to sign off on the match is The Undertaker and if he is looking for a final WWE match then this would be the perfect opportunity.
