Sting Wanted His 'Last Hurrah' Against The Undertaker In WWE

"I don’t know why the match never happened, but it should have happened."

Sting has revealed how he wanted his 'last hurrah' to be against The Undertaker, and says it was one of the reasons he left WWE after he realised the match wouldn't happen.

A match between Sting and The Undertaker has long been speculated about, in one of the most famous examples of 'fantasy booking' between WCW and WWE. A potential match was reportedly in the works for more than one WrestleMania and finally looked a possibility when Sting joined WWE in 2014.

The promotion themselves teased a meeting between the two on social media but The Undertaker retired following his Boneyard Match with AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. 

Sting, now with AEW, says he made it very clear to WWE how much he wanted the match with 'The Dead Man' to happen, but does not know why the company never signed off on the two meeting.

Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Sting said: “I wanted that to happen. I was very clear publicly, and I was very clear with WWE, as well. I wanted my last hurrah against Taker. For whatever reason, it just never materialized.

"To this day, I don’t know why. Maybe Taker never wanted to work with me. I have no idea. I mean, I’ve had good conversations with Taker and we’ve always got along. I don’t know why the match never happened, but it should have happened.

"Because it wasn’t going to happen, and I knew it, and that wasn’t the only reason why I left WWE, but it’s one of the reasons why I left. I wanted that one last match."
