WWE Hall of Famer Sting has commented on potentially wrestling again inside of a WWE ring.
The pro wrestling legend recently spoke with longtime WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia on her podcast, Chasing Glory, where he spoke about various topics. If you recall, Seth Rollins wrestled Sting for the WWE Title at the 2015 Night of Champions PPV, which marked Sting’s last match after he suffered a neck injury after taking a powerbomb in the corner and has not wrestled since then.
“Yeah, I’m really done. I mean my neck doesn’t bother me at all. For the first couple of months after the match, I had an ache that would go down to the left side of my neck and down into my left trap. It was like a dull ache that was just there all the time and it was hard to sleep. I don’t have any side effects, any trouble so all I know is the neurosurgeon said, “You are so lucky there wasn’t a catastrophe that happened.”
He continued by stating that he has to be careful and that he feels it’s sad too because even at his age, he feels that he can still go and have a good match with The Undertaker as he thinks they could tell an incredible story with both the chemics and the mystique of both of them.
He brought up how he’s had these ideas for 20 years and that it would be something that people would talk about for a long time, but he’s satisfied and happy with how things turned out as he had his WWE run, wrestled at WrestleMania, worked with Seth Rollins for the WWE Title so he can’t complain.
Sting also gave some insight into what made him not go to the WWE shortly after WCW was sold and bought by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon as he noted that WCW would always give him what he wanted and that he knew the commitment he would have to make with McMahon which was being gone a lot more due to the schedule.
“With WCW at the time, I was able to kind of tailor make my schedule to something that I could tolerate and something that was easier for my family at the time. Financially they always gave me what I wanted, but I was really close to leaving on a few different occasions and I was ready. If WCW didn’t give me what I wanted, then I was willing to take that risk and go to WWE. One of the other reasons why I never did, I always talked about this as well, I at the time-and I still don’t know if it’s accurate or not, but I thought that Vince wanted me as a talent to undermine WCW more than he wanted me as a talent working for him.”
