Over the past week, speculation has suggested Sting may have wrestled his last match and that he would be retiring from wrestling when he is inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the night before WrestleMania 32.
However, following that report, the WCW icon said in a brief interview with TMZ Sports: "My neck is okay. I'm not officially retired. There's a lot of rumors out there, but I'm not officially retired," dismissing the rumors for the time being.
While we will likely receive the final decision when the Hall of Fame ceremony comes around in just under two weeks time, The Stinger has said in an interview with WWE.com what match he would have liked if he was able to compete at WrestleMania 32. And it's the match everyone still wants.

He said when asked if he would compete at WrestleMania 32 if he wasn't injured: "Yes. If I had my way, yes, of course. I would have loved to have done one more WrestleMania and I would have called it quits at that point. The Undertaker match — that’s what I wanted to do.
"...it was in my mind, of course, but everyone knew that I definitely wanted to have that one match. And, of course, WrestleMania would have been the place to do it. But, I got hurt and the rest is history."
In the interview, he also talked about the Hall of Fame ceremony, his first year-and-a-half in the WWE, and whether or not he has competed in his final match, to which the latter he said: "I have to say it: The only thing for sure about Sting is nothing’s for sure."
The neck injury that has kept the 56-year-old out of WrestleMania and has caused the retirement talk to stir came from his WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Seth Rollins last September at Night of Champions.
Fans will be hoping the injury hasn't ruled out completely one final match for Sting or a match against The Undertaker. The Phenom is scheduled to face off against Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell match at this year's WrestleMania, so the best chance for a match to take place between the two icons would be next year's Showcase of The Immortals in Orlando.
Sting could make a surprise appearance during or after the McMahon vs Undertaker match so that fans can see the two icons in the ring together for the first time ever. At least that's what the WWE Universe will be hoping if the WCW icon does.
As for his future, The Stinger said he would be happy if his match against Rollins was his last, but as The Vigilante said as well, nothing is for sure.
