WWE Hall of Famer Sting has closed the door on a potential career in the ring and many fans feel as though there was a big missed opportunity for Sting to have a match with The Undertaker during his short run in WWE.
Sting discussed that, and a number of topics during an appearance on Lillian Garcia’s ‘Chasing Glory’ podcast.
“Yeah, I’m really done. I mean my neck doesn’t bother me at all. For the first couple of months after the match, I had an ache that would go down to the left side of my neck and down into my left trap. It was like a dull ache that was just there all the time and it was hard to sleep. I don’t have any side effects, any trouble so all I know is the neurosurgeon said, “You are so lucky there wasn’t a catastrophe that happened.”
Sting also discussed why he didn’t jump to WWE when Vince McMahon purchased WCW in the early 2000s.
“With WCW at the time, I was able to kind of tailor make my schedule to something that I could tolerate and something that was easier for my family at the time. Financially they always gave me what I wanted, but I was really close to leaving on a few different occasions and I was ready. If WCW didn’t give me what I wanted, then I was willing to take that risk and go to WWE. One of the other reasons why I never did, I always talked about this as well, I at the time-and I still don’t know if it’s accurate or not, but I thought that Vince wanted me as a talent to undermine WCW more than he wanted me as a talent working for him.”

“Let morale go down in your company and see how quickly that forward momentum comes to a halt” Waltman said on the latest episode of his podcast. “There can be a mass exodus to WWE in a second. WWE will cherry pick every single one of the guys you have.”
