Former WCW and TNA star Sting is featured in a new in-depth interview with Grantland.com. ‘The Icon’ talks to writer The Masked Man about how he heard about the Monday Night Wars, if a match with Undertaker still appeals to him, and much more.
You can read a few excerpts from the interview below:
Sting on not seeing much on WWE TV during the Monday Night Wars:
We had a monitor with our show happening live that we would watch and another one with Monday-night Raw. It was always on in the dressing room and in Gorilla position. Occasionally I’d watch a minute or two of what was going on, but mostly I’d hear all the talk — I would hear more than I saw.
Sting On If Facing Undertaker Would Still Appeal To Him:
Absolutely. I would love to have that match. I think for wrestling fans it’s a dream match, but really it’s been a dream match of mine for a long time, as well. I know that the streak was taken away by Brock Lesnar at this last WrestleMania, but I hope [Undertaker]’s not done. I don’t believe he is. And if he is going to be around, I’m hoping for an opportunity.
Sting On ‘Cementing’ His Legacy:
The word “cement” doesn’t mean anything. I look at my career and think, I’ve done just about everything. The only thing I haven’t done is work in the WWE. I haven’t wrestled Taker. I would like to be a part of that family before I call it quits. And here I am, at least in a video game. That’s good, but it has nothing to do with “If I retire, this is the best way to do it.” It has everything to do with the fact that this is the only thing I haven’t done.
