WWE Hall of Famer Sting has spoken once again about a desire to fight The Undertaker in a battle of the wrestling legends. The Stinger has even admitted he would come out of retirement if given the chance to go one-on-one with the Deadman.
"Of course, if I had a chance, I'd do it. But look at 'Taker's career; did he miss out on anything? Look at my career. I don't think I really missed out on anything, either," Sting said at a WrestleCon event.
"I regret not being able to get in the ring with him one time. It would have been great, but I'm OK with the way it turned out."
Now, the former WCW world heavyweight champion has revealed the reason why he never clashed with The Phenom.
The 58-year old suffered a serious neck injury in a fight with Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at the 2015 Night of the Champions.
"I always wanted to wrestle Undertaker. That was a worldwide dream match, I think, and it was my dream match too," he said in an interview with WXYZ-TV.
Sting added that the fight with The Undertaker would have been a good way for him to end his career.
"I always wanted to do that with 'Taker, just one time. I thought it would've been a good way to go out, but you know, I hurt my neck and the rest is history," he said.
Since his injury, Sting has not stepped in the ring. He announced his retirement from active wrestling when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016.
