Bobby Roode and Sting have been on a collision course ever since October. When the self-proclaimed leader of The Selfish Generation won the World Championship he began to defy every single decision Sting has made.
All that did was get the Icon madder and madder as the months past.
As Sting would punish the champion, Roode would weasel his way out each and every time. At the same time, he was also become increasingly angry with the way Sting was running Impact Wrestling.
With Roode cheating his way to retaining the title during every defense, Sting decided to make himself a special enforcer at "Against All Odds" to ensure a fair match.
Unfortunately his plan backfired when Roode annoyed him to the point where he tried to screw Roode out of the title. He instead accidentally hit Jeff Hardy and Roode retained thanks to Sting.
On the following episode of Impact Wrestling, Sting forced Roode to defend the title against Hardy and after he retained the title, Roode finally had enough and attacked the Stinger later on that night.
Sting then booked himself in a non-title match against Roode at Victory Road to teach him some respect.
Since then Sting has continued to make the champion’s life a living hell with his match-making decisions.
This past Thursday, though, Roode once again got under his skin with a dynamite promo.
While Sting did snap and attack the champion, Roode has all of the momentum thanks to that promo.
This match will show that Sting has still got in the ring but it won’t be enough.
Bobby Roode has been on a roll since winning the title and there may be no one that could stop him.
Sting will certainly try, but Roode’s arm will be raised in victory at the end of the show.
Winner: Bobby Roode
