One of the most requested matches in WWE Universe history was the one between The Undertaker and Sting. It has been talked about for several months and even years, but for one reason or another it never went on stage. The two challenged each other in 1990 when the Deadman performed as Mark Callous, but there was never a meeting as the two played their most famous characters.
In the finale of last year The Undertaker officially announced his retirement from the world of wrestling while Sting is back, with a sensational move that shocked all fans in All Elite Wrestling. Intervention during an interview Jon Moxley, former Dean Ambrose in WWE, spoke about many themes and also about this hypothetical match.
This meeting will never happen, but Moxley talked about this story: "I guess first of all it would have depended a lot on when, where and how Sting and The Undertaker would compete. I would have seen both of them in their prime in WWE and assuming Sting was going to be the classic good guy in history I think he would have won.
I also say this because it is he who is now in my group and it is always nice to see him around here. I definitely say this WCW match would have been horrible, they would have ruined everything anyway. Sting? I've never worked with him but maybe who knows, one day we'll do something."
In a question and answer with the fans on IGN it was the Undertaker himself who talked about this hypothetical meeting with Sting. In this regard, he in fact declared: "I understand that the fans often think about this.
Sting was in WCW for some time but then he went elsewhere and the chances of our meeting have closed. I actually think this match is quite more enjoyable in how people see it than it actually would be. It's one of those classic challenges that people will always talk about "
Why has the WWE never staged a Hulk Hogan vs Steve Austin?
In the latest installment of his Grilling JR, the historic WWE Hall of Famer, as well as current voice of the AEW commentary table, Jim Ross, tried to explain what was the biggest impediment that did not allow Hogan and Austin to clashing in the WWE rings, with The Voice saying: "I think the biggest problem for Austin was his intense, aggressive and somehow unsafe, very high pace.
This probably wouldn't have gone well with Hogan's style at the time, due to the condition of his back. But the match would certainly have been a huge attraction. It would have been a huge poster. They were going to put up some great promos.
It would have brought interest, it would have brought money, but I don't think the match would ever have been up to the two big stars they were." We also remember that in one of his last interviews in 2019, Steve Austin was instead sure of the opposite, which is that with Hulk Hogan he could have done really great things, as he said in one of his episodes of the Steve Austin Show: "I think if we had the chance to be alone in a room, having a healthy conversation, we probably would have come up with some deals and deals. This will probably be one of the biggest regrets of my entire career."
