WWE Originally Had No Plans For Sting After Rollins Match

Sting is one of the biggest names in wrestling history, but it turns out WWE had nothing planned for the retired star after his final match.

Sting wrestled his final match for the WWE at Night of Champions in 2015, losing a WWE World Heavyweight Championship bout to Seth Rollins. Unfortunately, The Vigilante suffered a serious neck injury during the match, and opted to retire a few months later.

The former face of WCW would then get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, though he concluded his speech with "See you later." That caused many to wonder if Sting was actually ready to fight one more match, specifically against The Undertaker at WrestleMania —a dream match all (including Sting), have wanted for years.

Sting answered fan questions at the Wales Comic Con on the weekend and was asked what the plans for him were after his loss to Rollins. The Icon had a rather surprising answer.


"I don't know, I don't think they really had any plans to be honest. I had my plans, I wanted that match with Taker and would have done my best to make it happen."

Of course, Sting would retire before WrestleMania 32 in Dallas while The Undertaker would face Shane McMahon in a winning effort. Over the past year, Sting admitted that he hasn't given up on wrestling, and still hopes he could get in the ring with The Deadman one day.


Sting made his long-anticipated debut for the WWE at Survivor Series in 2014. Unfortunately, injuries and questionable booking decisions (having him lose to Triple H in his WWE debut at WrestleMania 31), made for a disappointing tenure in the WWE.

Though Sting has gone against surgery in hopes that he can get in one more match, it's highly unlikely WWE will allow him to wrestle one more match. He's 58 years old and the neck injury is extremely serious.

But as he once said, "The only thing that's for sure about Sting is nothing's for sure," so you never know what he has in store.
