Sting, also known as Steve Borden, had a short stint with the WWE and could have been active to date had it not for a disastrous WWE Night of Champions match with Seth Rollins.
To recall, Sting was fighting Rollins for the WWE heavyweight title but got injured following a powerbomb by the “Architect.” To date, this was one of the controversial events in the WWE regarding the recklessness of Rollins.
Sting was forced to retirement and eventually inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame prior to Wrestlemania 32. As everyone knows, there was a dream match that would have happened but never materialized. This was that one between him and The Undertaker.
Will Vince McMahon Approve?
That Sting vs. Undertaker match at Wrestlemania never materialized because Vince McMahon thumbed it down. The WWE CEO believed that seeing a couple of oldies was not the way to go and the dream match was eventually thumbed down.
With Sting retired and Undertaker expected to hang it up all soon, the match may be nothing more than a wish. That is unless the WWE considers the dish of Sting during an interview on the WWE Network that he has some unfinished business.
For Sting to fight one last match, he will need to convince the WWE physicians that he is good to go. It may not be that different from the case of Daniel Bryan who forced to retire due to concussion issues.
The thing is, a match with the Undertaker could be punishing for the “Vigilante.” His spine is suspect and everyone knows how a “Last Ride” or a powerbomb from the Dead Man could render serious injuries that may lead to paralysis.
If for some reason the WWE warrants it, it could happen at WrestleMania 33. But for that to happen, it needs to pass the WWE physicians and of course Vince McMahon.
