WWE are reportedly trying to put together a dream match between the legendary Undertaker and WCW icon Sting for their next Saudi Arabia show.
Vince McMahon has used the controversial trips to the Middle East to entice a host of Hall of Fame names out of retirement.
Goldberg was the latest star to return – albeit in a disastrous clash with ‘Taker at Super ShowDown in June.
That followed on from Shawn Michaels’ return at Crown Jewel the previous year, a decade after he hung up his wrestling boots.
Now it seems McMahon and his fellow wrestling chiefs are plotting to entice another blast from the past back inside the squared-circle.
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.
He has always maintained since that he would not climb back into the ring for one more battle – but he has been vocal over his regret at never getting the opportunity to go one-on-one with the Dead Man.
Now he may finally get that opportunity, according to The Dirty Sheets podcast.
They state McMahon is looking to bring Sting back for one more match.
That led to WWF Old School claiming: “Another match that WWE wants to book is The Undertaker vs. Sting.
“WWE wants to book his [Undertaker’s] dream match next year (most probably at a Saudi Arabia PPV) and are hoping to get Sting medically cleared for this bout.
“Sting suffered a neck injury during his last match, which was against Seth Rollins back in 2015 at Night Of Champions PPV.
“Sting (age 60) getting cleared at this point will be very difficult, but the hope is still there among WWE officials.”
Despite the 54-year-old Undertaker and Sting’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.
The Saudi Arabia Sports Authority is paying big bucks to WWE for a number of shows over a reported ten-year agreement.
And the prospect of a final big payday to take on the one man he has always wanted to face could just be enough to convince The Stinger to make a comeback.
