Sting admits nearly jumping to WWE last year

Feb 5, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck

This past Thursday, former WCW and TNA champion Sting appeared on
97.9/105.5 KISS-FM’s show Big Poppa In The Morning to promote TNA and talked
about almost joining WWE last year. Talking about any regrets about never
joining WWE during his long and illustrious career, Sting said that he’s not
going to lie about it and that he would have loved to be in at least one
WrestleMania. “I wish I had done one of those. I’ve had great conversations
with him (referring to Vince McMahon) over the years and been real close on
three or four different occasions,” Sting said. Sting added that there’s one
man he’d love to wrestle but didn’t get the opportunity to do so yet and
that man is the Undertaker. Last year the big rumor was that Sting would be
wrestling the Undertaker at WrestleMania and the resemblance of the
vignettes with the trench coat that aired on RAW for weeks fueled that
speculation however the vignettes ended up being switched to a return of the
Undertaker himself. But the rumors were not far off as when he was asked
when was the last time he nearly joined Vince McMahon’s company, Sting said
it was last year. “Last year. It was very, very close.”
