Next Sunday at WrestleMania 31 Sting will compete in his first ever match inside a WWE ring when takes on Triple H.
The match was made official at the WWE Fastlane pay-per-view last month during a face to face confrontation and Triple H accepted the match. Sting made his first ever appearance at Survivor Series, costing The Authority the victory and their jobs.
The WWE have built up this feud very well, considering fans were calling for a match between Sting and The Undertaker, this has proven to be a great substitute.

It’s not clear who will be walking out the victor, either Sting’s 14-year wait to take down Triple H will go to waste if he is left broken inside the ring, or he finally gets his revenge and wins his first match in the WWE.
His contract situation isn’t clear either, he might choose to call it a day after WrestleMania or he might decide to stick around.

If Sting decides to stay after WrestleMania here are the superstars I think he could feud with.
This would be perfect if Bray Wyatt sticks the final nail in the coffin of The Undertaker. If he can pull out a victory over The Phenom then going on to take on The Icon would be a huge for Bray Wyatt.
I think Sting will work better with the younger, safer stars and Bray Wyatt is one of them. If Wyatt can prove he can carry The Undertaker then he will be fine if he goes up against Sting. Their gimmicks will work well in this feud as Sting will be another legend for Bray Wyatt to finally put down.
The best situation would be if both men pick up impressive victories at WrestleMania, with Sting the ultimate hero and Bray Wyatt the ultimate villain for defeating The Undertaker, turning their sights to one another would be a great feud to watch, especially since Bray Wyatt has proven he can carry a feud alone.
If the WWE can make this feud happen then it would be a winner for sure. Sting was on Monday Night Raw this past week where he assisted Randy Orton when he was surrounded by The Authority and the duo wiped out everyone in their path.
On the WWE Network Randy Orton told Sting he didn’t need his help before admitting what all of us fans were thinking, that it was pretty cool. If the WWE have the two have each other’s backs for a while to build up trust, they will be going in the right direction.
Randy Orton isn’t someone you trust, and having him revert back to the Legend Killer gimmick to take out Sting would bring back the old Randy Orton everyone loved. Orton is also someone who can carry Sting in the ring and the two could sell a great story as well, if Sting says this is a feud the WWE should definitely consider.
If Seth Rollins doesn’t cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase at WrestleMania and start a feud with Roman Reigns or whoever the champion will be, then the WWE should look to have Rollins feud with Sting.
The two have had their run-ins before and Seth Rollins has hyped up The Vigilante a number of times and having the two meet inside the ring would be fantastic to see and a great achievement in Rollins’ career.
One way the WWE could play this is out is if Sting defeats Triple H at WrestleMania, and the COO could enlist the future of the WWE to do the dirty work for him and show everyone why he is the future by taking out Sting in what could potentially be a highly entertaining feud.
Whether this one is wishful thinking at this stage remains to be seen. Fans thought that WrestleMania 31 would be the stage where the two legends finally meet inside a ring but it wasn’t meant to be, but that doesn’t mean the two will never compete so we cannot rule it out just yet.
They both live in Texas where WrestleMania 32 will take place and that match alone – regardless of how great or not the match is – will sell out the AT&T Stadium in an instant. If they have the time to train and put on a good standard match then it won’t be as bad as people assume.
The build-up, the hype surrounding the potential clash, the special entrances we could get, the amazing promos and the creepy vignettes are just some of the things we could expect if the two men do finally meet.
Either we witness two of the all-time greats finally meeting inside a WWE ring, or we move forward imagining what would have happened if The Undertaker and Sting competed against one another at WrestleMania.
