When asked about the possible dream match of The Undertaker vs. Sting taking place at WrestleMania, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter mentioned that WWE probably wouldn’t clear Sting to wrestle another match for the company.
“The impression we have is that Sting probably can’t get cleared to wrestle. He’s already retired. I know that if he could wrestle,he would want that match.”

Sting has made it known in various interviews since his retirement that he would like to have a match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Sting’s WWE career was short lived after he suffered an injury against Seth Rollins a couple years back. Sting mentioned during a Q&A at The Wales Comic Con event in Wrexham last month that he doesn’t plan to have the surgery to repair the injury.
“The only reason I held off on the surgery is because I had guys like Stone Cold saying don’t do it. I don’t have any side effects? I can still work out and it doesn’t bother me, I don’t get a sore neck from sleeping or anything so why would I get surgery? If you don’t need it, don’t do it.”
