Undertaker retirement: WWE legend called out for one last match by dream opponent
The Undertaker appears to have been called out for a dream match against WWE Hall of Famer Sting after announcing his retirement. Undertaker, 55, stated during his tell-all docuseries The Last Ride that he has “no desire to get back in the ring” and that there is nothing left for him to accomplish in Vince McMahon’s promotion.
Taker is one of the greatest legends in WWE history as he has done it all and beaten some of the all-time best, like Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, John Cena and many more.
However, there is only one dream march that has eluded The Phenom throughout his celebrated 30-year career and that is a fight against Sting.

The Icon has always wanted to face Undertaker in the ring and the highly-anticipated bout almost took place a few years ago when the WCW legend finally joined WWE in 2014.

However, the six-time world champion was forced to retire after suffering a career-ending neck injury at Night of Champions 2015 in a fight against Seth Rollins and so the dream match has since been off.
But Sting doesn’t appear to be giving up as he recently shared a retro picture of himself driving a motorcycle and appeared to take a shot at Undertaker’s docuseries as he captioned it with: “Who wants to take a “last” ride with Sting?”

The Deadman left a window open for a return open when he stated that he would consider coming back for one more match “in case of emergency” if WWE Chairman and CEO McMahon was “in a pinch”.
Undertaker said: “I’m at a point, it’s time this cowboy really rides away. There’s nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish.
“The game has changed. It’s time for new guys to come up. The time just seems right.
“I can do more good outside the ring than I can inside. I’m finally at a place where I can accept that.

“If Vince was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time would only tell there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out The Undertaker. I would consider it.
“[But] at this point in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring.”
Undertaker’s final match took place at WrestleMania 36 last April where he defeated AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match.
