Sting would come out of retirement if WWE gave him a match with Undertaker at WrestleMania 36

WWE Hall of Famer Sting

WWE Hall of Famer Sting has been retired since 2015, but he's still longing like most wrestlers for that one last match to finish his career properly.

It's fair to say his only WWE run four years ago wasn't what he had hoped for.

His first match was on the Grandest Stage of Them All - WrestleMania - where he was defeated by Triple H in a bout which was a huge throwback to the Attitude Era, and saw WWE come out on top against WCW once again.

Sting returned in August to confront WWE Champion Seth Rollins, which led to a match the following month at Night of Champions - the night that his career effectively ended.

After taking a Buckle Bomb from Rollins, Sting collapsed to the mat in severe pain, and although he was able to complete the match, he wasn't able to continue in his career.

He revealed months later that he needed surgery to correct cervical spinal stenosis, which will have come about from his countless years of wrestling, and during his Hall of Fame speech in 2016, he announced his retirement from in-ring competition.

Sometimes though, those words don't matter, as he's proven yet again by admitting there's one opponent in particular he would come out of retirement for.

He's spoken about it before, but Sting believes that he could prepare himself for a match against The Undertaker if WWE ever let it happen.

"If there was a Taker situation at WrestleMania, I would listen to that phone call," Sting told Sports Illustrated. "I could get in condition and I could pull it off."

Despite stating multiple times that he would love to face The Undertaker, Sting believes that if it was going to happen, it already would have done, but he still holds a little bit of hope.

There's every chance a match between Sting and The Undertaker could still happen in 2020

"I think my career is done. I still think about the Taker situation every year, but I don't think it's going to happen."

You can't blame him for wanting that particular match, as it's been talked about a lot for over 20 years, and Sting himself didn't get to retire on his own terms.

There wouldn't be much athleticism on show in a Taker v Sting match, but there's a chance to create some incredible storytelling - and many will be hoping to see it.
