• Sting Says He Was Planning To Push Hard For The “Dream Match” After His Match With Seth Rollins
During an appearance on Apter Chat, WWE Hall of Famer & WCW Legend Sting talked about the dream match with The Undertaker that fans wanted for decades, and still wouldn’t mind seeing.
Sting talked about how he planned on pushing hard for a match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania after his match with Seth Rollins and that he had some pretty good ideas for a feud with “The Deadman”.
Below is what Sting said:
“It’s a dream match for sure for wrestling fans all over the world and it was a dream match for me too. I’ve never heard The Undertaker reciprocate that once, so I don’t know how he feels about it exactly, but I always wanted to have one match with him.
But by the time I got my foot in the door with WWE, even at my first WrestleMania, I had hopes that some way or another, I could end up doing it. And I wanted it to be my last match, against Undertaker, to go out like that. And I think there was probably potential for it to happen, and then, I got hurt!
I mean, I was just doing one-offs with them. Yep, that’s exactly what it was and I was making it known that I would like to have that last match with Taker. And then, one time in Albany, they had pretty much signed a match with Brock Lesnar and Taker, so that one was already done. And we just couldn’t, for whatever reason, get it to happen. And I don’t have all the reasons. I just know that it never happened, obviously. And I wanted it to.
I think that if I could have made it through that last match with Seth, I was really going to push hard to see if I could get that WrestleMania program with Taker.
I had so many ideas that developed over a couple of decades based on his character and my character and some of the ideas I had in my head.
Someday, someone’s going to do some pretty cool stuff like that with characters that are similar, and it all has to do with sleight of hand, and special effects, and holograms.
Oh man, I had some ideas that would’ve rocked everybody. I mean, it would have matched his character and mine. And I believe it would leave people with their jaws open.” Sting added, “they would’ve been very, very entertained.”
For those who don’t know, Taker & Sting had a match in WCW before Taker came to the WWF and below is a photo from that match:
