The stinging undertaking
The New York Post is reporting that Sting signed a one-year deal with the WWE. Oh, and it also helps Sting was not part of the "They" revealed at last night's Impact taping. (I won't reveal who "They" are, in case you don't want it spoiled.)
In case you aren't aware, Sting has told several sources, including The Trentonian, he would not want to work for Vince McMahon. So, I really don't want to believe this until I see it.
The 2-21-11 promo that aired on Raw could quite possibly be the Stinger. It could also be The Undertaker.
Yes, Taker did just start physical therapy last month, but everyone seems optimistic that he will be able to perform at WrestleMania. He could easily return without competing, simply because his character can do alot with touching a soul.
Remember, last year Edge returned far earlier than expected with a Royal Rumble win, but never actually wrestled until WrestleMania.
Does McMahon win anything if he has stolen Nash, Booker and Sting from TNA's "They" storyline? Not really future-of-the-company-wise (these guys are all approaching Hall of Fame age in their careers), but he gains a new announcer with Booker (we'll see how well he does Friday night), Nash has an undetermined role right now (personally, I think he would make a great Tough Enough coach with occasional ring appearances) and Sting, well, he'll finally get the one legend who has escaped him all these years.
(Who would Sting have a beef with? Who would he face at WrestleMania? I don't think it would be Taker, as some are spreading. Possibly Cena, or even a returning Triple H, who wanted a meaningful return.)
I'm sure he also sold a few more Royal Rumble PPVs with the rumors all weekend about Nash and Booker (okay, and a few more from the others rumored who didn't show).
Oh, and he really gets to laugh every time sometime says "TNA."
