At this point it seems fairly obviously that the 2/21/11 mystery man is The Undertaker, however there is still a sliver of chance it turns out to be Sting.
All we know for sure is that someone creepy will be on Monday Night Raw on February 21, 2011. Pretty vague, I know, but that's why all the speculation is emanating from this.
WWE has done a great job of creating hype, and despite the official website of the SaveMart Center (Raw's hosting arena on February 21) announcing The Undertaker would be returning, hype has not died down one bit.
In this slideshow we'll take a look at 10 possible storylines for Sting in WWE, should he make his WWE debut. While it is unlikely Sting is the mystery man, it's not 100% impossible as of writing, so read through and, of course, leave a comment.
I'll get the obvious one out of the way first, The Icon vs. The Phenom.
Don't let it's cliché-nature fool you, though. This match may be an obvious pick, but it would be a great match.
Yes, both Undertaker and Sting are nearing the ends of their in-ring careers, but if they faced each other at WrestleMania, it would be a great match.
With both Sting and The Undertaker having somewhat macabre gimmicks, there are so many different possibilities for an actual storyline it would be hard to name just one.
No matter how they played this, it would turn out a great match, and it's something the fans have been wanting for years.
Like his kayfabe older-brother, Kane also has a a creepy gimmick, and while the match may not go down in history as the best ever, the promos they would be able to cut and the "mind-game" segments that could be done would make for some great television.
The Big Show is a big guy who can wrestle. Sting is large man who can wrestle. Seems like a formula for an entertaining feud to me.
The Big Show and Sting are two seasoned veterans who, in their own rights, have had successful careers that are at this point, past the "half-way" mark.
Again, while this may not win any Match of the Year awards, it would be great to see.
Too PG-Era for you? Maybe putting The Icon up against the poster-boy for PG WWE isn't a conventional pick, but John Cena is the Hulk Hogan of today, and it would only make sense for him to have a feud with Sting, should Sting ever find his way to WWE.
I will admit that this isn't a personal favorite, but if Sting were to come to WWE, it is something that we would most likely see.
With Kevin Nash (aka Diesel) finding common ground with WWE as of late, if Sting were to jump-ship also, this match would be possible.
Wrestling as Diesel, of course, Nash vs. Sting is something I think would turn out awesome. Both guys are veterans who are at a point in their career where nothing will really be all that new to them or the fans. This match would be interesting to see, though, even if it were only a one-off and not an entire feud.
So far it's been Sting vs. already-established talent. While CM Punk is a main eventer, he is somewhat new, so it would be cool to see this.
You take someone who is simply an icon of pro wrestling and put him in the ring with a new-school main eventer. It would be interesting, and my guess is it would turn out to be a good match.
Randy Orton is part of a generation between Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Sting and CM Punk, Sheamus, and Wade Barrett.
Orton is completely established as a main event talent, but is not nearing the end of his career at all. This makes Orton a perfect opponent for Sting. He isn't too old, and isn't too young and un-established to the fans.
Orton is obviously extremely capable both in the ring and on the mic, and this is a feud I think would turn out very nicely.
Chris Jericho and Sting I think simply would be able to pull off a great match.
Chris Jericho is one of the best in-ring wrestlers in the world, and Sting is Sting, the Icon.
I don't see how anything other than a good match can come out of putting these two in a ring together.
Triple H may be nearing the end of his in-ring career, but he still has a few years left in him.
Triple H is one of the biggest names in pro wrestling, if not the biggest name, and this feud would be a money-maker.
Like with Chris Jericho, I don't see how this would go wrong. Two of the biggest names in pro wrestling history having a match together, that sounds pretty good to me.
This would be my personal favorite, and that is why it's the final slide.
Edge can carry a match, a great match. He has what may be the largest arsenal of moves in WWE today, and it is all centered around the Spear, which is one of the most exciting finishers in wrestlers.
Just picture Edge spearing Sting at WrestleMania and tell me it didn't get you thinking.
I have no doubts this feud would be awesome to watch and would turn out at least one amazing match.
