Neither The Undertaker nor Sting has competed in a WWE ring since WrestleMania, but reports suggest both legendary performers could appear at August's SummerSlam event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t SEScoops.com), both The Phenom and The Icon are reportedly scheduled to take part in WWE's biggest show of the summer.
Furthermore, PWInsider (h/t WrestlingInc.com) is reporting that The Deadman is expected to appear on Monday's edition of Raw following Sunday's Battleground pay-per-view.
Although it is not clear if Taker might be part of Battleground in St. Louis as well, Richard Gray of WrestlingNewsWorld.com is hearing that he will be present:
It's unclear if The Undertaker and Sting are expected to work matches at SummerSlam, but it would be significant if they do. The Phenom hasn't competed at a pay-per-view other than WrestleMania since Bragging Rights 2010, while The Vigilante's only WWE match was a loss to Triple H on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Fans have long dreamed of a clash between The Undertaker and Sting, and it could potentially happen at SummerSlam. There are other options on the table as well, though, with Brock Lesnar and Bray Wyatt standing out as potential opponents for Taker and Sting, respectively.
It will be a massive missed opportunity if the 50-year-old Undertaker and 56-year-old Stinger don't lock horns at some point before their careers conclude, and if both of them do indeed compete at SummerSlam, then WWE may never have a better opportunity to make it happen.
