While promoting the new WWE 2K Battlegrounds video game, Undertaker took some fan questions from IGN users.
During one of his responses, Undertaker explained that when he returns to WWE television, he’d like to bring back the version of his character that buried AJ Styles in a Boneyard match at WrestleMania 36:
“We kind of brought back a version of Big Evil for AJ Styles and the Boneyard. I think that iteration of the character kind of brought all the 30 years together. It’s the American Badass, Big Evil, all of them, all grown up into one. Yeah, so I think that’s kind of where we’re at, and that’s I think where we’ll move forward when I do make appearances on TV.”
Of course there was a question about a match with Sting. Undertaker simply doesn’t sound interested in the idea:
“Yeah, I get that a lot. Sting stayed down in WCW for so long, and then he went somewhere else, and that window kind of closed. I know he kind of showed up at the end. The way people see that, it looks much better on paper that it actually would’ve been. It’s one of those matches that people will talk about forever.”
Considering where both wrestlers are at in this stage of their respective careers, this match is probably better left for the video games rather than an actual WWE ring. As an aside, I did find it amusing that Undertaker referred to TNA as “somewhere else” rather than say the actual name of the promotion. I guess some of those bizarre WWE rules are just hardwired into their wrestlers.
Do you think this finally closes the door on the talk of a future match between Sting and Undertaker?
