During the last few hours news has been released that could completely change the landscape of WrestleMania 35. Dave Meltzer, Wrestling Observer journalist, revealed in his latest radio show that WWE had entered into conversations with Sting to bring him back from retirement and face it at The Undertaker at WrestleMania 35 , the WWE Grand Event to be held on April 7, 2019, at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey City, New York.
Sting suffered a serious injury in 2015 during a match for the WWE Championship against Seth Rollins in the Clash of Champions PPV. The Hall of Famer received a Buckle Bomb on one of the corners and was paralyzed for a few seconds. The assistants of WWE tried to stop the fight but Sting continued until the end, being overcome by Seth Rollins by means of the count of three. Later, the doctors diagnosed that Sting suffered a back injury that could have left him in a wheelchair, although he did not need surgery.
Due to this injury, Sting announced his retirement during his presentation at the Hall of Fame ceremony, surprising many of those present, who did not know of his intention. Since then, the fighter has continued to work with the company under a legend contract and has appeared in countless acts for fans.
During the last months, he has confessed his enormous interest in a fight against The Undertaker at WrestleMania and has even come to affirm that he would leave the retreat only to face him.
“I would only consider my return against an opponent, and that would be The Undertaker , and nobody else,” Sting said. “Why I’ve always liked the idea of Sting-Taker, so many ideas hovering in my head for decades, you know, how to make it a night that people will never forget.”
The official WWE announcement scheduled to take place at the Road to WrestleMania, although there is no specific date. Vince McMahon had the opportunity to face them when Sting returned in 2014, taking advantage of his contract with 2K. The idea had been discarded altogether at this point, but the decline of Roman Reigns has caused WWE to need a bigger claim to sell all tickets to the show.
