THE DREAM match between Undertaker and Sting appears to finally be on the cards, according to reports.
The 60-year-old Sting, real name Steve Borden, was forced to call it a day four years ago with a neck injury sustained during his brief period wrestling for WWE.
Since then the Hall of Famer has always maintained he would not climb back into the ring for one more battle.
However, he has been vocal over his regret at never getting the opportunity to go one-on-one with the Dead Man.
He told Sports Illustrated: “If there was a ‘Taker situation at WrestleMania, I would listen to that phone call. I could get in condition and I could pull it off.”
Reports previously suggested that Vince McMahon was plotting a big-money offer to entice the veteran out of retirement to battle Taker at one of the company’s Saudi Arabia pay-per-views.
However, talkSPORT claim a mega-match between Undertaker and Sting at WrestleMania 36 seems far more likely should the WCW legend decide to return to action.
Despite the pair’s age, the prospect of seeing two of the biggest names to ever compete would certainly be an intriguing one for the WWE Universe.
The two men were key players in the Monday Night Wars between WWE and WCW back in the late 90s and remain huge fan favourites to this day.
After McMahon purchased WCW in 2001, Sting refused to sign for his rival due to loyalty to the fallen brand.

After years of persuasion, he finally entered WWE in 2014 and immediately targeted Triple H and The Authority.
The two would later have an epic battle at WrestleMania 31 the following year, which memorably saw both DX and the New World Order square-off.
Sting later fought Seth Rollins for the WWE title at Night of Champions but injured his neck during the losing effort, which turned out to be his final ever match.
