Every wrestling fan’s dream came true this past Sunday at the Survivor Series pay-per-view as Sting finally made his debut in the WWE, taking out referee Scott Armstrong and then Triple H which allowed Dolph Ziggler to cover Seth Rollins to guide Team Cena to victory and ultimately take The Authority out of power.
Expectations were high heading into the event, the pay-per-view was free on the WWE Network, the main event match had careers on the line whilst the likes of Randy Orton and Roman Reigns rumoured to be making an appearance – the latter appearing via satellite even though he was backstage all night.
But the moment that topped off the incredible night was the arrival of Sting, rumours circulate every single year about his arrival and how there is only one match the fans would love to see him compete in. The year 2014 finally saw the arrival of Sting and plans are being discussed for what could be in line The Icon.
THE ICON VS THE GAME OR THE DEADMAN?
Based on the way Sting debuted at the Survivor Series event, it suggests that Sting could eventually stand opposite Triple H at WrestleMania 31. That won’t be the fans’ first choice as it The Undertaker vs. Sting is the dream match the fans have been wanting for years and years and this is the closest we have come to it. The streak is no more so there won’t be any predictability to it but it all depends on the health of The Undertaker.
PWInsider have reported that Sting may end up competing in more than one match, especially if The Undertaker is passed fit and the match between Triple H and Sting is given the green light.
It’s unclear as to whether the WWE are going to scrap the potential match between The Undertaker and Sting, handing it over to Triple H and Sting has made it clear in the past that the likes of The Undertaker, John Cena and Triple H are the kind of superstars he would love to compete against.
Now the WWE has a decision to make, whether they want Sting to actually wrestle in more than one match, at his age and the shape he’s in; who knows whether his body can take the toll of two or even more blockbuster matches.
There is a possibility that if The Undertaker is able to compete, a match between Triple H and Sting could take place before it, the Royal Rumble pay-per-view has been pointed out as an ideal stage for the two men to compete, because Triple H will be able to carry Sting through a match and it’s highly doubtful that The Undertaker can.
The fans also have a decision to make for themselves, would they rather see Sting compete in a number of matches? Or only one match, his first and last match at the grandest stage of them all, potentially against The Undertaker?
One thing is for certain, regardless of what happens with Sting from now up until WrestleMania 31; he is guaranteed to be inducted into the 2015 Hall of Fame for what he has achieved in the wrestling business.
A feud with Triple H would be very interesting if it does go ahead for WrestleMania 31, we would get a lot of build up to the event especially if Sting is named as General Manager which could begin another power struggle.
With The Undertaker, it depends on when The Deadman returns. For a match of this stature he would need to return a lot sooner than he usually does to get the most out of a feud and a match the fans are so desperate to see, regardless of how the match itself turns out.
Around a month ago there were rumours circulating that Bray Wyatt could also be in the frame to challenge Sting, after dropping hints on his Twitter account and his character fits in perfectly for a feud with Sting.
