WWE Hall of Famer Sting announced his retirement three years ago after having to undergo neck surgery, but the 60-year-old legend won't fully rule out a return to the ring.
At the Starrcast event, Sting said that he'd wrestle again for "the right price," according to Felix Upton of Ringside News. Sting's last match took place against Seth Rollins at the 2015 Night of Champions pay-per-view, where he lost a WWE World title match.
During the match, Sting suffered a neck injury, and the match had to be halted for several moments. The Vigilante and Rollins were able to finish the match, but the former unfortunately had to retire at the advice of doctors.
Sting has emphasized the desire to face The Undertaker in a match, but WWE hasn't shown any willingness to go down that road. Fans have been clamoring for that match to happen over the past two decades, but WWE wouldn't do it during Sting's lone year with the company.
Whether or not WWE would bring back Sting remains to be seen. He may be 60 years of age, but The Icon is clearly confident in his ability to do it again. If WWE isn't willing to bring back Sting for another match, the new AEW promotion could be an option, as they've brought in plenty of former main eventers from Vince McMahon's promotion.
After the WCW promotion was bought out by McMahon in 2001, Sting was one of the few major stars that opted not to sign with WWE. Instead, he went on to have a storied career in TNA. He finally debuted for WWE at the 2014 Survivor Series, wrestling a handful of matches before retiring at his Hall of Fame ceremony. We'll find out soon enough if he comes back for one last bout.
What This Means
It'd be awesome to see Sting get one more match in his career, because WWE didn't use him properly - and he deserved a better farewell moment. Hopefully, WWE or AEW will meet his asking price and bring back the wrestling legend for one more match before he becomes permanently retired.
