Undertaker vs. Sting is one of the biggest dream matches WWE never capitalised on despite having the opportunity and the possibility of it being one of the biggest wrestling matches of all time.
The Undertaker recently had an interview with Barstool Sports where he talked about a number of things including bringing back his American badass character and more.
During the interview, the Dead Man was asked if he ever had any talks with the Icon about the potential dream match but the wrestling legend replied negatively:
“Not even once, I knew him from my days in WCW in the late 80s but I never actually saw him again until he joined WWE, Its crazy that we never spoke. We never called each other and discussed, ‘hey would you like to do this mega match’ or whatever. My schedule was always full, there were always guys waiting to face me.”
Taker then went on to explain that a match between them could have been cool 20 years ago when the two athletes were in their primes so people wouldn’t have gotten a watered down version of their characters:
“To be completely honest, the match would have been cool in the 90s or early 2000s. I don’t want people to get a watered down version of that character. I want people to remember the 90s, the WrestleMania matches with Edge, Batista, Shawn, and Punk, and not the match I had with Roman, when I was all beat up and out of shape. I looked like a Bloated Elvis.”
