The Undertaker vs Sting was more than a Dream Match: it was the forbidden dream of generations of wrestling fans, but also of the two directly concerned who many times have reiterated that they have dreamed of this fateful dispute between them as and more than the fans.
In the meantime, however, a new version of the story arrives. Providing it is one of the two protagonists, who somewhat surprisingly for the first time attributes more directly the lack of dispute over the meeting to his colleague.
This is Sting, whose return to the ring is scheduled for this Sunday at the AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view event, where he will team up with Darby Allin against Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky. To promote this match, Sting gave an interview to 'Paste Magazine' during which he was asked why the fateful meeting between him and The Undertaker never took place.
Well, Sting reiterated that he had wanted this contest for years, and even though they were both in WWE throughout the 1910s, that never happened. What made noise, however, were his subsequent statements: "No. No. As of today, I honestly don't know why it jumped.
I don't even know if it was Taker's fault. Maybe Taker never wanted to work with me. Maybe they teased him with this proposal and he kind of shrugged and said he didn't really want to. He might have chosen that for whatever reason, even though Taker and I have always gotten along.
I don't think he has. problems with me, I certainly have no problems with him. I just have great respect for him. But I have no idea why that dispute never went through." These are important and in a certain sense serious words, on which Sting insisted without hiding a disappointment that he evidently has not yet overcome: "I think it was not right not to play that match.
It is something that I think should have happened. 20 years, I said it clearly, you already know. I had so many ideas on how we could face each other, we could make it a truly unforgettable night." Then, the sudden return to the present: "But you know what? Now I'm in AEW - recalled Sting -.
I'm here, I love what's happening here and I love what we're preparing for the future. So I'm glad I did. that move and moving here."
