Undertaker Reveals The Real Reason Why Match With Sting Didn’t Happen

Undertaker Sting WrestleMania Match Rumors

A lot of fans think WrestleMania 31 in 2015 would’ve been the perfect time and place to book the long-awaited dream match between The Undertaker and Sting.

However, the match didn’t happen. Undertaker retired in 2020 and Sting retired in 2024 (after originally retiring due to an injury in 2015).

On his “Six Feet Under with Mark Calaway” YouTube channel, Undertaker revealed that the real reason he never got to face Sting in WWE is because Vince McMahon wasn’t interested in it.

Here’s what The Deadman said:

“It just didn’t work out. He had a short run in WWE and Vince didn’t want it. For whatever reason, I don’t know what it was. He didn’t feel it. Everybody else was clamoring for this match for quite a few years.

A year or two into that character change, I mean, people were already sending me artwork with the billboard or the poster. It just never worked out. The match would have been good, but I don’t think it would have lived up to the expectations that people have for it. People always think about things in a certain sense. I think they thought in their mind of Undertaker, 2007 or 2008 versus Sting. It was later on than that. I can say I was way on the backside of what I was going to do when he got there.

The smart thing that he did was he was booked judiciously. He wasn’t put into situations where he might have got exposed and not be able to maybe keep up with the younger talent. It was probably him, I would imagine, because you have to understand your limitations.

A lot of times, people will get caught up in the moment. ‘Oh, well let’s put Sting in the ring with such and such.’ I’m just talking about the AEW. There would have been tons of single matches for him. He took Darby Allin. There was a little bit of chemistry there. Sting was kind of that big brother type role. It’s a very smart move (to put him in a tag team with Darby Allin) because you don’t get exposed.

I feel like I can speak on this and I’m not trying to say anything disparaging about Sting. I mean, it is what it is. In my heart and my mind, if I could, I would still be in the ring but I had to come to the cold hard facts that like, what my mind’s eye and my heart feels, my body wants no part of it and it doesn’t allow me to do the things I want to do.

Could I go out there on my sweat equity on what I’ve done? Hell yeah, I could. I’m not patting myself on the back, but I don’t think there’s anybody in the business that could throw a punch like I can throw a punch. I could Chokeslam. I might mess up my brand new knees with a Tombstone (Piledriver), but I could walk out there and I could shuck and jive and smoke and mirror it and make people feel like they saw something, but that’s just not right. People pay too much money to be entertained properly.”
