The last time Sting wrestled, he suffered a neck injury at the hands of Seth Rollins that made it clear his in-ring career should be over, at least as an active wrestler. Sure enough, his only appearances in the meantime have come for things like Ric Flair’s birthday celebration.
Still, he maintains a willingness to come out of retirement for just one opponent, and you already know what that is (via WrestlingTravel.org):
“I mean, everyone knows who it would be. Taker, he’s the only guy I’d come out of retirement for now. No one else. We could just never get it together to make it happen. When I started talking to WWE he was booked with Brock and then I did the deal with Triple H and he had another feud going on at the time, so it was just one of those things we couldn’t make happen.
“But I don’t regret it not happening either, I mean I got to face Triple H at my first WrestleMania and then wrestle Seth for the world title, so I didn’t do too badly out of that deal. But yeah, now, the only person I’m getting back in the ring for is Taker.”
Considering how safe the two are, I, a massive Sting fan, will continue to hope the match happens someday.
