“The Icon” Sting believes he could have had a marvellous dream match with The Undertaker despite his age if his career hadn’t ended because of injury.
Pro-wrestling fans have been wanting to see The Icon and The Phenom face each other for decades as both of them stole their respective shows during the Monday Night Wars.
Sting and The Undertaker shared almost the same sinister and dark image, putting together some amazing performances in the ring at WCW and WWE respectively during the 90s.
After Vince McMahon bought WCW, The Stinger having rebuffed a move to WWE quickly moved to TNA whereas The Deadman continued his stay with the former WWF.
In 2014 the WCW legend finally joined WWE and appeared at Survivor Series where he laid waste to Triple H and helped Team Cena score the victory of Team Authority. Sting then faced Triple H at WrestleMania 31 (his official in-ring WWE debut) and then challenged Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship at Night of Champions.
However, The Vigilante had to retire after his match with Rollins to undergo surgery to repair cervical spinal stenosis.
According to Wrestling Inc, Sting told Lilian Garcia on her Chasing Glory podcast that he is done with wrestling and that’s a pity because he feels like he could still put together an unforgettable match with The Undertaker (53) even at an advanced age of 59.
The Icon said: “Yeah, I’m really done. I mean my neck doesn’t bother me at all.
“For the first couple of months after the match, I had an ache that would go down to the left side of my neck and down into my left trap. It was like a dull ache that was just there all the time and it was hard to sleep.
“I don’t have any side effects, any trouble so all I know is the neurosurgeon said, ‘You are so lucky there wasn’t a catastrophe that happened.’
“I got to be careful and it’s sad too because even at my age I feel like I could still go, I could still have a real good Undertaker match for example.
“We could tell an incredible story with both the chemics and the mystique of both of them. I’ve had these ideas for 20 years, some of the ideas I have in my head.
“It would be something that people would talk about for a long time, but I’m satisfied. I’m happy with the way things turned out.
“I did have my WWE run, it was short, but I had one. I did WrestleMania, I wrestled Seth Rollins, I wrestled for the WWE world title, so I can’t complain.”
