One of the things fans are most looking forward to this Sunday is the fact that Triple H and Sting will finally come to face to face once more as they look to continue building up to their match at WrestleMania 31.
Last week on Monday Night Raw we watched on as Triple H wanted Sting’s answer, whether he accepted or declined The Game’s challenge to go face to face at Fastlane and we saw a Sting impersonator accept the challenge on his behalf before an intense war of words followed the following week with Triple H and Ric Flair.
PWInsider have reported that Sting has been in Orlando this week. He’s working at the WWE Performance Center in the build up to Fastlane in regards to doing something for the WWE, Monday Night Raw was held in Orlando this week and it’s unclear as to whether Sting was there or not.
Orlando is the home of NXT and the WWE Performance Center and it is believed that Sting has been in Florida over the past few days as he is working on his upcoming face to face encounter with Triple H in Memphis as Fastlane takes place this Sunday.
Sting first arrived in the WWE at the Survivor Series pay-per-view after so much speculation and after a lengthy face off with Triple H inside the ring, he hit the Scorpion Death Drop on Triple H and pulled Dolph Ziggler on to Seth Rollins to give Team Cena the victory and this took The Authority out of power; for a short while anyway.
His next appearance came on January 19 where he interrupted the main event handicap match between The Big Show, Kane and Seth Rollins as they took on John Cena. His interference distracted the heels and Cena’s win managed to get Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback their jobs back.
The second interference is what has brought all of this on and it will play a big part in their eventual clash at WrestleMania 31 at the Levi’s Stadium.
Sting is schedule to only make four more appearances for the company, one of those will be taken up at Fastlane whilst his final appearance is set for WrestleMania 31 on March 29, meaning the build-up for his match with Triple – if his contract hasn’t been altered – will only see two Sting appearances.
He’s rumoured to be rehearsing his segment at the Performance Center, making sure his face off with Triple H runs smoothly as it will be the first time in history we hear Sting talk in the WWE.
He only has a few appearances left so it’s great to see that Sting and the WWE are rehearsing beforehand to make sure his appearances go down well with the audience especially as this will probably be his one and only run in the WWE.
The fans have waited a long time for this and Sting has waited even longer, let’s hope both Sting and Triple H make it an entertaining segment.
