Sting and The Undertaker were two major figures in the WWE vs. WCW ratings war in the 1990s but had the stars aligned, wrestling fans always knew there was an all-time classic to be had if the two ever got in a ring together.
Now Sting is expressing those feelings, too.
ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV in Detroit caught up with Sting at the Motor City Comic Con and in the interview, Sting discussed his regrets never facing The Undertaker.
"I always wanted to wrestle Undertaker. That was a worldwide dream match, I think, and it was my dream match too," Sting said. "I always wanted to do that with Taker, just one time. I thought it would've been a good way to go out, but you know, I hurt my neck and the rest is history."
The WWE Hall of Famer only competed in a handful of matches in his brief time in WWE, including going up against Seth Rollins at the 2015 edition of the Night of Champions pay-per-view and Triple H at WrestleMania 31.
Sting had been offered an opportunity to wrestle The Undertaker at WrestleMania 27 as well as a WWE Hall of Fame induction but said he declined the offer due to WCW stars’ track record in WWE ever since Vince McMahon bought out WCW.
"I wouldn't say it was utter nonsense, that's not true!" Sting said in a 2011 interview with the Daily Mail. "It's a dream match that fans would want to see. It was close. I'm glad things turned out the way they did. There are so many variables. Let's just say that I turned it down for the same reasons I always have. Something in me never trusted what would happen up there, based entirely on the track record with other WCW guys and everything that went on after Vince bought WCW."
