Sting is slated to make his return to live in-ring action this Sunday at the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view event where he will team up with Darby Allin against Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky.
To promote it, he did an interview with Paste Magazine and during it, he was asked why a match with him and The Undertaker never happened. Sting has talked about wanting this match for years and even though they were both in WWE nearly a decade ago, it never happened.
“No. No. To this day, I honestly don’t know. I don’t even know, it could be Taker. Maybe Taker just never really wanted to work with me. Maybe they brought it up and he kind of snubbed his nose and said he didn’t really want to do that. For whatever reason, even though Taker and I have always gotten along great. I don’t think he has issues with me, I certainly don’t have any issues with him. I just have a great amount of respect for him. But I have no idea why that match never happened.
I think it was not right that it didn’t happen. It’s something that I believe should have happened. I said it for 20 years, I made it clear, you know, “I’d love to have that match, I’d love to have one with that guy.” With the two characters, I had so many ideas of how we could’ve done that, and made it definitely a night that nobody would ever forget. But you know what, I’m here, I’m with AEW, I love what’s going on here, and I love what’s getting ready to happen. And I’m glad I made that move and came here.”
Taker has gone on record by stating that he didn’t think he would have a good match with Sting later in his career due to the damage to his own body.
