As we reported recently WWE posted an interesting image on Instagram featuring Sting and The Undertaker. The company appeared to be teasing a match between Sting and The Undertaker. For longtime fans this is one of the biggest ‘what if’ bouts in history. Both men are synonymous with the two companies that they represented through the 80’s, 90’s and 00′ – WCW and WWE.
It turns out that the image was used to promote WWE’s new web series ‘WWE Reimagined.’
We now have an update for the potential Sting vs Undertaker match from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Dave Meltzer wrote that the belief is “the company would never risk Sting taking a bump given he never had surgery on his neck.”
Meltzer elaborated further, saying “He’s a 60 year old man with spinal stenosis. and the idea of him wrestling is not even broached.” This is a point that Meltzer has made on his Wrestling Observer Radio show recently.
It appears as though this was just one of those ‘what if’ matches that we really won’t get to see happen.
