The Undertaker has finally spoken about the dream match that fans have been holding out hope to see. Of course, that contest is “The Deadman” taking on Sting.
Ever since Sting joined WWE several years ago, the WWE Hall of Famer has talked about still wanting the match that has eluded him in his pro wrestling career.
The Undertaker was asked about this possible match and why it hasn’t been booked thus far in an interview with Comic Book.
Undertaker started out by saying never say never regarding the booking of it. However, he did point out that while it sounds great on paper and would be a super marquee match, he admits that he differs from a lot of people as he looks past the marquee value. Instead, he looks at the ability to deliver.
“There’s so many people that are clamoring for that match that I just don’t know that the match could deliver on the people’s expectations. The only reason I say that I’ll take full [responsibility], 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 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.”
Taker continued by noting that it comes down to the debate of who’s the greatest as you’re never going to know. He brought up the comparisons between Michael Jordan and Lebron James.
“And it’s the same thing. That’s a great match, but 10 years ago I think it could still happen and it could still be a stellar match. I’m just not sure at this point that it could deliver on the hype.”
Taker was asked whether the rumors of the match floating around WrestleMania XXVII were true. He said that he didn’t hear anything about it, but noticed that he knew the temperature got turned up on that. Taker recalled how he was on the same flight with Taker after that WrestleMania and they talked but it was a casual conversation.
“No one ever approached me with any serious like, “Hey, what do you think about Sting at this?” or it’s never been presented to me other than by our fans.
It should be noted that Sting is no longer under contract with WWE. Taker also talked about his WWE Network docuseries and more. Check out the full interview here.
