• Reason Behind WWE Not Doing The Undertaker vs. Sting When They Had A Chance
Many fans believe that WWE could’ve done The Undertaker vs. Sting at WrestleMania 31 (or at WrestleMania 32 if Sting didn’t get injured in 2015).
However, that didn’t happen. Sting went on to have big PPV matches with Triple H & Seth Rollins in WWE and lost both of them.
During a recent interview with Wrestling Travel, Sting was asked if there’s a wrestler that he would like to come out of retirement to have a match with.
Below is what Sting said:
“I mean, everyone knows who it would be — Taker. He’s the only guy I’d come out of retirement for now. No one else.
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.
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, the only person I’m getting in the ring for is Taker.”
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE never booked the dream match of The Undertaker vs. Sting because Vince McMahon was never hot on this match.
Also, with Sting getting injured in his last match, this match will never take place because WWE is very careful with their older performers nowadays (especially after Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack during a match on RAW).
