Stinger's last stand

And so, the inevitable final face turn by Sting has arrived.

We knew he would not end his career as a member of the Main Event Mafia. Even though he still claims that he created the group for good reasons, they have turned on him, proving that absolute power does corrupt absolutely.

Sting is past 50 now, and from what I have heard, he is looking at one last good run. He said in a Trentonian interview last year that retirement "is something I think about pretty regularly now. I definitely want to get out before I embarrass myself. The wave is coming in to shore soon, but I am not sure how close it is."

Sting is facing Samoa Joe at Victory Road this weekend, and the question is how he wants to go out. He has recently feuded with Mick Foley, A.J. Styles, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe, and you can't get much bigger than that. He seems to be on the same side as Jeff Jarrett right now, so there may no way to get them feuding unless they somehow end up with different agendas.

Sting is one of the all-time great wrestlers, and it would be nice to see him go out with a glorious match of some sort that people will remember, just like his longtime rival Ric Flair did.
