Following his WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions back in 2015, it was believed that Sting’s wrestling career was over.
The WCW Legend had sustained a neck injury that put his fantasy match against The Undertaker in serious doubt.
Sting was then inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and it was believed that he wouldn’t step into a wrestling ring again, until recently when he made his surprise debut in AEW.
The former IMPACT Wrestling star recently spoke to Fightful where he revealed that he pushed for a cinematic match with Undertaker in WWE and would be open to matches in AEW.
“I didn’t want to end the way it ended. I was pushing to get a cinema-style match with Undertaker. For probably a litany of reasons, it just wasn’t going to happen.”
“When Tony called and spoke with me, he said, ‘Are you interested in doing cinema-style matches?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I am.’ I’d like to come back and do that and not disappear with my tail between my legs. I don’t have to go out on top, I’d like to go out in a positive light.”
WWE has proved in recent months that cinematic matches could be the future of the business for several legends who are unable to wrestle a full live match on TV.
