The WWE Universe were shocked in November 2014, when a WCW icon made his long-awaited WWE bow at Survivor Series.
Sting made his debut to stop Triple H's shenanigans, and it all led to a match with The Game at WrestleMania 31, and there was some surprise when 'The Vigilante' was on the wrong end of the result.
It wasn't just a one-and-done deal though, as he returned later into 2015 to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship at Night Of Champions, but that match ended with Sting suffering a legitimate neck injury which he was recommended surgery for, but didn't end up going under the knife.
In 2016, Sting told John Bradshaw Layfield on the WWE Network show Legends with JBL that he still had unfinished business with the company, and he had longed for a match with the one man who could match late-90s WCW Sting in terms of spookiness - The Undertaker.
Sting showed up just a few weeks ago on Raw for Ric Flair's 70th birthday celebrations, and speaking to Wrestling Travel recently, Sting indicated that there's only one man he's coming back into the WWE ring against, and it's exactly the man you'd think it would be - The Deadman.

"Taker, he’s the only guy I’d come out of retirement for now. No one else," the Hall of Famer said.
"We could just never get it together to make it happen. When I started talking to WWE he was booked with Brock and then I did the deal with Triple H and he had another feud going on at the time, so it was just one of those things we couldn’t make happen.
“But I don’t regret it not happening either, I mean I got to face Triple H at my first WrestleMania and then wrestle Seth for the world title, so I didn’t do too badly out of that deal. But yeah, now, the only person I’m getting back in the ring for is Taker.”
With Taker now being 53 and Sting 60, there may not be such a demand for a match between the two in 2019, but the nostalgia in some fans will still want it.
But with the 'Lord of Darkness' apparently appearing at the next WWE Saudi Arabia show in May, could the match happen in just over a months time?News Now - Sport News
