Sting reveals there’s one match he would come out of retirement for

Steve “Sting” Borden made it pretty clear that his last appearance in the ring, where he sustained a neck injury at the hands of Seth Rollins, was likely to be his last as an active wrestler.

Since then, he has made fleeting WWE appearances for things such as the recent Ric Flair celebration and his time as an in-ring performer does seem over – only one man could potentially cause The Icon to reconsider that and have one more match:

“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.

“But 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, now, the only person I’m getting back in the ring for is Taker.”

Whilst a match between the two would undoubtedly be a brilliant spectacle, is it 10 years too late? We’d like to hear your thoughts…

  • This is NOT news, he’s literally been on this soapbox for years.

    It has nothing to do with not being able to get it together to make it happen, WWE had expected a longer run out of Sting but his injury during his match with Rollins cut his run short.
    Had WWE only expected this short of a run, I am sure he would have been put into an Undertaker promo regardless of who he was supposed to be feuding with at the time.

    Taker and Sting are two of my favourites ever, and would have loved to see them go up against eachother at Mania, but now it is way too late for both.
    Sting by all accounts needs guiding through matches these days, and Taker has slowed down to a crawl.
