WWE rarely fails to cash upon a history-making opportunity. Unfortunately, the company and Vince McMahon never went through with The Undertaker vs Sting match. If they did, the match would have been one of the best that ever took place in the WWE ring.

Even if The Deadman and the Stinger were ready for a match, there is no guarantee that either of them will get medical clearance. Taker retired from the ring following The Boneyard match against AJ Styles while Sting announced his retirement in 2016 at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.

The Undertaker wants the match to remain on paper

The Undertaker is of the opinion that the match looks better on paper than it will in reality. If by some miracle the match does happen, it won’t be at par with the expectations surrounding it.

“I don’t have the mobility or the same skill set that I once did that I would need to make that match great. So there’s just certain things, it’s better left to the theater of the mind than to actually put it out there. And then with the expectations being so high and the match not delivering, it would be a bigger disappointment than the match never happening at all.”

The Undertaker made his debut in WWE on November 2, 1990, at Survivor Series. His character became one of the best to ever step foot into the squared circle. Coming to Sting, he made his WWE debut in 2014 at Survivor Series.
