Sting On Working With WWE Now, Wants One Last Match, All For Appearing On TV

Sting spoke exclusively with The Mirror in the United Kingdom about his involvement in the WWE 2K15 video game. Below are the highlights from their article.

Working with WWE being now or never at age 55:

"I've done so many things in the wrestling business but the one thing I'd never done was wrestle or be a part of the WWE family." Sting commented.

"I didn't want too hang it all up and retire and disappear again without having done that in some capacity."

One last match:

"I've made it clear I'd love to have one last hurrah, one last big match hopefully. And of course I've been outspoken about Undertaker being the opponent," he replies, when asked if he is open to negotiate lacing up his boots for the company."  Sting told The Mirror.

"I know what happened at Wrestlemania where Brock Lesnar broke his streak. I think, or at least I'm hoping, that Taker's still going to come back and that he's not done. If he's not done, and he would consider doing it, I'd love to work with him one time.

"I'd love to wrestle him one time before I call it quits."

If he'll appear on WWE TV to promote his inclusion in WWE 2K15:

"All for it, just put it that way. I'm all for it," he says.

Sting went on to talk about a possible induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, his friendship with the Ultimate Warrior and more. You can read the piece in its entirety at this link.

Richard Reacts: Sting being in WWE 2K15 is one of two ongoing projects with the company as they'll be releasing a Sting DVD on September 23, 2014. I heard Undertaker's streak ending at Wrestlemania 30 this year had nothing to do with a possible dream match against Sting from not happening. Undertaker would be available for it if he desired it and was healthy enough to compete. I truly believe we will see Sting on WWE television before it's all said and done, I just hope it's carefully handled. Appearances like this have very short shelf lives and there is only one initial run.

    Taker and Sting should face each other at Mania, end their careers on the biggest stage in the industry, regardless of who wins have them shake hands at the end, have a variety of Taker’s greatest foes act as pallbearers to carry his coffin out for the night with Sting leading the procession, and with that they’re both retired.

      the only problem with taker vs sting is…. their bodies.. they are good wrestlers but can they pull off a 15 min match? also sting has a lot of lifting moves in his arsenal and that wont be possible for him to do at this age.. so if we get a match dont expect many bumps or suplexes

        Sting is in significantly better shape than you’re giving him credit for. Unlike Undertake he hasn’t essentially destroyed himself. Watch some of his work with TNA, he’s slowed down, of course, but he can still go. He can still execute all of his key moves safely. But really, what we want is the spectacle of the two greatest macabre characters in the history of this business putting the period on their era. They’re the last of the living legends still standing, and even if they work a slower paced match it will still be a sight to behold.

        But seriously, Sting is in ridiculous shape for a 55 year old wrestler.

          i like sting i have no doubt he can put up a good match. but i just saw a report showing his past 4 ppv matches and 2 of them sucked. other 2 did above average. he can do much better if he takes a break and then wrestles but again his style is something that can stop him from having any better matches. the historic value will be just awesome but taker can use a better match after the one with lesnar. not his fault but for a wrestling match it wasnt his best

            His last four PPV matches were not with quality opponents. Magnus and EC3 are, at best, mediocre, and say what you want about Bully Ray, the man is a fat tub of goo who has never been a particularly impressive worker. Sting used his last few months in TNA to help put over new guys and ongoing storylines, the fact that he wasn’t able to pull a great match out of them is not entirely surprising. Bully Ray has only had a few singles matches that were great, Magnus and EC3 have yet to have a match you could call good, and the majority of the members of A&8s that Sting faced were, uh, newbies. With Taker he’d be able to put on a solid match, wouldn’t be the best of their careers but I’m certain they could put a good show on.

            bully ray isnt good?? that guy is can pull off long hard matches and mike it look like a squash match. he is really good. him and sting just happen to have different fight types. thats my exact point. taker and sting have different styles. also taker s as big as bully so its gonna be the same problem. and on top of that they both are slow passed mostly cause of their age.

    sounds like Sting is all in for some tv time and at least one match. so now wwe is gonna sit on him? hes not getting any younger. He could easily be written in for a tag match at summerslam. The commerical would of made a great entrance. Just saying wwe is missing out on this one.

    I’m still somewhat skeptical of Sting in a WWE ring, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to see it happen. Plus, a Sting vs Undertaker match at WrestleMania. You can’t ask for a better dream match. It’s just a question of if it could actually happen. Fingers crossed.

  • Ben

    Why can’t he just retire with a pretty cool legacy of being the most famous wrestler to never work in WWE? I’d rather just have that over a “dream match” happening over a decade late with two guys in their 50s. I’m sorry, but I’m not seeing the dream part of this anymore.

    It would be worth it just to see the crowd reaction.
