The Sting vs Undertaker is one of the dream matches from which the wrestling universe was robbed. The WWE had the ultimate opportunity to run it down, but under Vince McMahon, it never took place. With the Deadman out of action and The Icon also wrestling his last match in AEW, it is unlikely that the legendary superstars will ever face off against each other. However, the Undertaker revealed that he also was interested in a clash against Sting and was ready to return to the ring.
