When Sting made his debut in WWE, several fans were excited as they thought he would finally face off against The Undertaker, which was a dream match for many. However, that did not end up happening. It seems he had an interesting pitch for a WrestleMania match but Vince McMahon promptly rejected it. Undertaker also had a legit fight with a former NXT Superstar.
Sting is currently working in AEW and signed a multi-year contract with the company. Sting recently spoke to Bleacher Report, where he discussed a variety of topics. Among them, he talked about possibly facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
Sting revealed that he wanted a Cinematic match against The Deadman, but they were not able to come to an agreement.
“It wasn’t a goal of mine to get back in the ring. The only thing I thought I might do is have a cinematic match against Undertaker when I was with WWE. We weren’t able to come to an agreement. Tony [Khan] reached out to me and asked if I wanted to come play and let him know. A year later and I thought WWE isn’t working out and I didn’t want to disappear with my tail between my legs. I hate that.
“I had no idea what I could offer AEW but I called Tony and he asked if I would be interested in doing cinematic matches. I said I would like to do that and now, Tony is talking about matches on Dynamite. We’ll see what happens there. To be back on TNT is a cool element to it. It’s great to have guys like Jim Ross, Tony, Dustin [Rhodes], Tully [Blanchard] and Arn [Anderson] around.”
