    This possibly the “closest” to the Sting to WWE rumor, still won’t believe it till I see it.

      Me neither. Sting is on this whole “I can’t go to WWE because they’ll crush me” thing and I doubt he’ll ever let it go. He’s 54 now; almost no point in my eyes. He’s spent way too much time working for a company that doesn’t matter.

        It may be true that he has spent a lot of time working for a company that doesn’t matter. I won’t argue that point at all. But the fact of the matter is that he is still Sting, and WWE would love to have another Hall of Famer under contract. Sting may be 54 years old, but he has managed to avoid serious injury during his career, and is still able to have a great match at anytime. A Sting vs Undertaker feud would still draw huge money. Plus he is still in good enough condition physically that he could have programs with quite a few of WWE’s big names before he hangs it up. A Triple H / Sting feud would be great. So would a program with somebody like HBK. He should only work with guys from that era if he came in though. Bringing him in only to have him go under workers from this generation would be pointless, and the fear of that happening to him is exactly what has kept him from signing in the past. I hope that he can come to a deal where he has a veto right or somethin like that to protect himself from getting buried. IMO Sting’s too much of a pro and wouldn’t abuse a contract where he has creative control unlike others have in the past. I’d just love to see him finally make the jump. For his sake I think he should get to experience being in the “big leagues” before he retires. WCW was a big company and I honestly preferred it, but WWE is and always has been the big leagues. I just think he would regret not getting a run there before he retires if he doesn’t at least have a short run. I have my fingers crossed that he will finally do it!

        Personally.. I’d rather he didn’t.. because if this “Undertaker V Sting” match I’d want Undertaker to go over, I’d be kind of disappointed if Sting went over.

        They should just keep it as a dream match.

        He already changed his mind…and said he would go there soon. We just don’t know when….but it’s not going to be now.

    Thinking the tna investor will be British bulldogs kids.

    They have the money, the investor is reveled in Britain, they don’t like wwe and Harry smith used to tag with one of the wolves.
