It’s always the same at this time of year: Sting’s TNA contract comes to an end and there is endless speculation that Sting will make his was to the WWE for the first time in his career.
It was the same thing last year, when everyone was positive he would show up in a WWE ring, but that wasn’t the case. Now there are strong rumours (and I emphasize the word rumours) circulating that he may well have signed with the WWE and might possibly be a part of their upcoming Wrestlemania show.
I want to lay my card on the table here – I will not be excited in the slightest if Sting does indeed end up doing some work for Vince McMahon. In fact, I think it’s pretty sad. We have just seen Kurt Angle doing a recent interview where he basically stated that he wants to go back to the WWE and it will probably happen. All this while he is still under contract with TNA. And if Sting were to do the same and somehow finish his wrestling days in a ring he has never stepped foot in before, it begs the question – is TNA not a good enough location for Sting to retire in?
If Sting jumps ship, I think you have your answer. It will mean that as much as he supposedly loves TNA and their fans, he doesn’t feel they can offer him the spotlight and fanfare that he feels his retirement deserves. It’s a pretty egotistical move, if you ask me. Sting has no history with the WWE and for the last 20 years or so, has avoided being employed by them. I am sure there have been many chances for him to join the WWE, but he has never made the move. So why now?
Unless he has been very foolish with his money (like Ric Flair) I doubt he needs a big final pay check. It just seems that there is this big attraction that the WWE has that Sting would somehow have to give in to. Almost as if he feels he has to go to the WWE to probably just have one meaningless match with someone he has never wrestled before. And for what reason? Just so he can say he did it?
Who is really passionate to see Sting in a WWE ring in front of a WWE crowd? And I still have no idea why people think it would be a perfect fit for him to wrestle the Undertaker. Perhaps someone can explain that one to me? I, for one, think that would be an awful match that anyone would be foolish to pay to see.
Le me finish by saying this – if Sting does indeed end up in the WWE, then that would be a giant slap in the face to TNA. Like I said, it’s as if TNA is not good enough for him to retire there.
I think it would be totally pathetic if Sting went to the WWE, just for the sake of it.
