Sting, real name Steve Borden, is a WWE Hall of Famer. He’s also a retired professional wrestler, actor, author, and former bodybuilder. Borden is currently signed to the WWE under a legends contract.

He is known for his time as the public face of two major professional wrestling promotions:

  1. The now-defunct World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from 1995 to 1998,
  2. And Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA, now GFW) from 2003 to start of 2014.

He is regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. Not to mention having cultivated a legacy over a career spanning more than three decades. During his career, Borden held 15 world championships.

The Icon in WWE

In 2014, Sting appeared on the WWE Network, sharing a story of his former tag-team partner the Ultimate Warrior, who had recently died. The following day, online retailer Zavvi announced WWE Home Video DVD and Blu-ray: The Best of Sting. And then he appeared in a vignette on Raw to promote the video game WWE 2K15.

On November 23 at Survivor Series, Sting made his first-ever appearance in a WWE ring by attacking Triple H.

The Phenom in WWE

With many nicknames, the Undertaker is the most feared and respected wrestler in WWE history. He is also known for The Streak, an unprecedented run of 21 straight victories at Wrestlemania.

The Phenom won the WWF/WWE heavyweight championship four times, and the WCW/WWE world championship three times. He also won the 2007 Royal Rumble.

He sustained his first loss at Wrestlemania XXX to Brock Lesnar, and the loss was described as “the most shocking in WWE history.”

The WWE Universe thought that Undertaker retired. But he returned when Bray Wyatt started a series of cryptic promos. He then offered a challenge to a match at Wrestlemania 31.

But fans are hoping the Undertaker goes up against a different opponent, someone fans has been waiting for.

Sting vs The Undertaker (Dream Match)

When the news broke that Sting has signed with WWE, speculation of the match began immediately. Fans are hoping to see The Icon vs The Phenom to take place at the grandest stage of them all. And Sting himself has made it clear that “if he has one last match, he wants The Deadman at Wrestlemania.”

But the dream match didn’t happen, and the main reason behind that was Vince McMahon. Both of the legendary figures were on the card at Levi’s Stadium. However, WWE decided to go in a different direction regarding their opponents at the big event.

What’s next?

Sting suffered a legit neck injury during his championship match against Rollins at Night of Champions. He then announced his retirement at the WWE Hall Of Fame 2016 ceremony.

On the other hand, Roman Reigns defeated The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 33. After the match, Undertaker left his gloves, coat and hat in the center of the ring. He then slowly walked up the ramp and performed his signature arm-raised pose as smoke surrounded him (a wrestling tradition which signals retirement).

But during the past few months, Michael Cole hints about not knowing if the Undertaker truly retired. Even Undertaker’s daughter is telling him how to beat Reigns next time.

And Sting also expressed interest in returning to face the Deadman.

However, during a Facebook live stream on Monday, Sting said he’s still capable of having a match. But he’s just not going to.

“I can still wrestle. I can still wrestle! I’m just not going to.”

He was also asked if he’d consider returning for a general manager role.

“Awwww…yeah, I might consider something like that. Yeah, yeah. Good to see Kurt back by the way.”
