Sting States That He Wants His Last Match To Be Against The Undertaker

Sting was last seen in the ring in January for TNA. It has been widely assumed that Sting will not be returning to TNA. Speculation has also been that Sting will make that long awaited debut in the WWE in the not too distant future.

The TNA Hall of Famer took in a Q&A session in London and naturally he was asked by a fan if he will face The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31 next year.

“I don’t know. I really don’t know. I can say that I would love for that to happen. I can tell you that, really, there’s only one more match that I would like to have,” Sting said. “Yes, Undertaker.”

The last time that Montel Vontavious Porter – better known as MVP – wrestled in south Florida, it was four years ago and with a different company.  Now, the Miami-based wrestler is finally making his return as part of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling’s Lockdown event this Sunday which airs live on pay-per-view.

“It’s not just coming home to Miami, it’s coming home to Miami with a new company, a new attitude and the fact that we’re at BankUnited Center which is in Coral Gables where the University of Miami Hurricanes play,” said MVP (Hassan Assad).  “As a matter of fact, I’m going to wear a Hurricanes jersey out to the ring.  I’m going to wear my orange, green and white Hurricane ring gear with a jersey on top because it’s all about The U.  And The U invented swag and in professional wrestling, nobody has more swag than MVP.”

The last time he wrestled in the United States, it was in 2010 with World Wrestling Entertainment.  After a successful five years with the company, he decided it was time for a change.
