For decades The Undertaker vs. Sting was a major dream match for wrestling fans. When Sting finally joined WWE everyone wondered if the company would possibly cash in on the dream match, but unfortunately it never came to fruition.

The Undertaker finally addressed a potential match with Sting on his Six Feet Under podcast and he admitted that it didn’t happen simply because Vince McMahon didn’t wasn’t interested.

“Everywhere I go on any given day I get the question. I always call it the question. Like when I do the 1 deadMAN Show. I just wait and I’m like, when’s it coming? Because I know it’s gonna come. It’s always, Why didn’t you and Sting ever have a match? Or why didn’t this happen or that happen? Man, that would have been huge box office, it just didn’t work out.

He had a short run in WWE and Vince didn’t want it for whatever reason, I don’t know what it was. He just didn’t feel it. And everybody else was like, people have clamouring for this match for quite a few years. And I mean, I don’t know, a year or two into his turn or that character change, people were sending me artwork with the billboard of the poster. So, yeah, it just never worked out.”

While talking about a potential match with Sting, The Undertaker speculated that it wouldn’t have met the high expectations people had for it when he said, “The match would have been good. But I don’t think it would have lived up to the expectations that people have for it. People always think about things in a certain sense. I think they thought in their mind of Undertaker 2007 2008 versus Sting. It was later on than that. I can say I was way on the backside of what I was going to do when he got there.”
