Sting was planning to wrestle Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 before his injury, still won't rule out more matches

The man himself said it - "The only thing for sure about Sting is nothing's for sure." sat down with the Icon as he approaches his official enshrinement into the company's Hall of Fame next Saturday, April 2 in Dallas to discuss that honor, and all the rumor and speculation swirling around his health and future.

Regarding the neck injury he sustained in his Night of Champions 2015 match with Seth Rollins, Sting says he never had surgery because he feels good and multiple doctors  - including WWE's Dr. Joseph Maroon - told him he's not experiencing any of the long-term side effects they would have expected from that type of injury.

He doesn't disagree with the diagnosis of cervical spinal stenosis which has made the rounds, but believes everyone with his career and history has some degree of the condition. Sting says he's gotten so many different diagnoses and pieces of advice that, at this point, he's "thinking, as long as I'm feeling good, why am I going to do anything?"

One thing that's sure to frustrate fans is his answer to a question about whether or not he'd be working WrestleMania 32 if it weren't for the injury:

If I had my way, yes, of course. I would have loved to have done one more WrestleMania and I would have called it quits at that point. The Undertaker match -€” that's what I wanted to do. was in my mind, of course, but everyone knew that I definitely wanted to have that one match. And, of course, WrestleMania would have been the place to do it. But, I got hurt and the rest is history.

Unfortunately, the injury did happen. But while he says he doesn't have any regrets about coming to WWE...

I didn't have any idea that I would be treated with as much enthusiasm and respect by everybody. And I mean everybody. I don't have a complaint anywhere.

... and he'd be happy if the Rollins match was his last one ever, the multi-time World champ won't say it is his last one ever.

Sting says nothing is for sure. Check out the whole interview here and let us know, what do you think?
