The Sting vs. Undertaker match that we’ve all been craving could actually happen at WrestleMania 31, in San Francisco. Sure, both wrestlers are past their primes — but like a fine wine, the best wrestlers adapt their style and adopt a new technique that allows them to be better entertainers than they’ve ever been.
In an interview with the Mirror, Sting mentions that he’d love to have one more opportunity to have a big match. When asked about who he’d like to face and under what circumstances, he drops this bombshell:
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.
Of course, the biggest problem with this is the fact that Sting is now 55 years old, with the Undertaker now 49 years old. A match between the two back in the 1990’s could have headlined any single event in the world and it’s not crazy to believe they could pull it off now — it will just be a different kind of match than it would have been back then.
Look at the kinds of matches that Undertaker has been able to put together in the last few years. He hasn’t been able to go on the road full-time, and that’s certainly helped keep him fresh enough to come up huge on the grandest stage of them all — WrestleMania. Why does this year have to be any different?
I’d love to see Sting debut as soon as possible, but the WWE could hold off on his debut until the Royal Rumble. Sting could talk about how he wants “one more match,” and there’s only one guy he wants it with. Imagine if both men were surprise entrants in the Rumble and found themselves alone in the ring together — the roof would blow off of the arena.
Even better — have them draw No. 1 and No. 2.
Will Sting show up in a WWE ring before his career is over? It appears the answer to that is a definitive yes. Will we get that dream match 25 years in the making, between the Undertaker and Sting? Keep your fingers crossed — it’s looking like it could really happen.
