Sting Says He Wants To Wrestle The Undertaker At WrestleMania 31, Talks WWE HOF & More

Wrestling legend Sting recently spoke with to hype his involvement in the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game. Sting spoke on a variety of topics, including why he decided to finally work with WWE after all these years, if he’s interested in joining the WWE Hall of Fame, memories of his former tag team partner The Ultimate Warrior and his desire to wrestle The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31. Here are the highlights of what Sting spoke about:

Finally Working With WWE: “Why now? It’s a now or never thing. I’ve done so many things in the wrestling business but the one thing I’d never done was wrestle or be a part of the WWE family I didn’t want too hang it all up and retire and disappear again without having done that in some capacity.”

Joining The WWE Hall Of Fame: “Obviously it would be a great honour to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. It’s nothing that I would say no to, that’s for sure.”

Memories Of The Ultimate Warrior: “Now I can look back and realise just how amazing it all was. It’s remarkable really that both of us ended up taking it all as far as we did.”

“It would seem like every three, four, five years or so we’d bump into each other. He called me twelve years ago, he needed some help with some stuff and of course I was there to help him out as much as I could. We never really kept in contact, but it was always friendly when we did. With his resurgence with WWE I was really looking forward to reconnecting with him again, and maybe even working with him in some capacity through WWE.”

Wanting To Wrestle The Undertaker: “I’ve made it clear I’d love to have one last hurrah, one last big match hopefully. And of course I’ve been outspoken about Undertaker being the opponent. I know what happened at Wrestlemania where Brock Lesnar broke his streak. I think, or at least I’m hoping, that Taker’s still going to come back and that he’s not done. If he’s not done, and he would consider doing it, I’d love to work with him one time.

“I’d love to wrestle him one time before I call it quits. Undertaker maintained a status in wrestling and the WWE that is second to none. He’s a phenomenon,”

“How about San Francisco, 2015, in April?”

    Sting vs Taker would have been awesome if you could turn back the clock at least 5 years and the Streak were still intact.

    • Kris Lermond

      It would be better now than never. I would have rather seen it 10 years ago, but we will never get that chance. All we can hope for, is one match. Sting vs Undertaker. Just once.

      Just to see Sting in WWE will help me forget about Punk. Which fucking sucks by the way.

      • Melissa

        Poor old Taker’s so messed up physically that I hate to see the guy get back in the ring. He looked so fragile at mania that it was not funny.

        And yes, I miss punk too.

          Funny how DDPYoga would probably help him regain his mobility… but his dislike for Page probably keeps him from trying the program or anything similar

      2011 would have been great

    I don’t care if the Streak is dead, i don’t care if both men are past their prime. If both men are still capable of having a match, i’d pay to see this happen at mania. On paper it looks awesome, the back and forth promos alone would be able to sell this match. It needs to happen as an epic moment in history with two of the biggest icons who represented their company in the Monday Night Wars. It would also be a befitting send-off match to end the careers of both men

      Taker doesn’t give great or extensive promos, and we all know he is no longer capable of putting on a match worthy of his legacy.

    • Melissa

      The problem is it looks great on paper. The truth is Sting will be 56 by next mania and Taker will be 50. Add those ages to the fact that Taker is pretty beat up physically and that’s all you have – a match that looks great on paper.

      • Monkey D. Luffy

        Agreed, it’s more of a fantasy match than anything, i suppose it’s too late for this match to happen. Taker’s last match was bad, so i can see why this match would be worse.

        Only on 2K15 i guess.

  • Neil Dodhia

    This will be epic!

    I think wwe will have a lot of Dr’s at the ring and backstage. Wwe need Sting to wrestle for them so that Vince can die in peace knowing he made it finally happen. I can imagine the promo 2 icons 1 stage 1 night only. But will it be Undertaker’s call if not Undertaker anyone else Sting? Brock? Austin?
