By now most of you can tell that I really want Sting to jump to WWE in the future before he retires. With that being said, why should he stay in TNA? He has feuded with the majority of the top stars on the roster, taken part in their never ending procession of stables and held both their top singles and doubles championship.
Since I have been watching TNA (just before the Main Event Mafia disbanded) Sting has been in some quite rubbish story lines, the whole Sting, Nash, Dinero vs Joe and Jarret feud was stupid – why didn't he just reveal who "they" were when he returned?
The creative direction in TNA is shocking at times and there is really no reason for him to see out his career there. Many of you on the site have also expressed a wish for TNA to push younger stars such as AJ Styles and Samoa Joe again so Sting leaving would leave a major vacancy at the top of the card which could be used to elevate another star.
If Sting was to be retired by a member of the roster in a retirement match then the victor would gain a ton of credibility, not to mention an incredible amount of heat!
WWE would most likely have him working with the biggest names in the company, feuds with the likes of Randy Orton and CM Punk would be compelling television and perhaps a feud with a younger star on the verge of breaking into the main event, such as Daniel Bryan, could help to elevate them and a wrestler as skilled as Bryan could definitely carry the majority of the match.
A potential WWE or World Heavyweight title reign may also be on the cards just to show that anyone can make it to the top of the WWE. However, the icing on the cake (Sting cake with icing as the face paint and jam for the bit under the eyes) would be a WrestleMania showdown with the Phenom. This would be one of the biggest matches if not the biggest match in history and wouldn't even have to be a classic, just the presence of both men would be incredible.
How about this:
Sting arrives and is eventually challenged to a match by Orton who claims to be the Legend Killer, hopefully adding some more depth to his character. Sting defeats him and once their feud ends he then gains the WWE title around Hell in a Cell (working an Undertaker schedule, who is currently ending things with Kane and Corre/Nexus).
Around the beginning of the Road to WrestleMania, Undertaker costs Sting the belt and kind of behaves like HBK in 2010 saying that Undertaker is the legend he wants to beat. The story writes itself from here with the past of both men being highlighted and mind games as they build up to a WrestleMania.
Imagine being Sting then. Your first WrestleMania, more than 70,000 people screaming your name, facing perhaps the biggest legend in wrestling history in his yard, cameras flashing wildly, it would be a better experience than anything he will ever have in TNA; and I dare any TNA fan to challenge that.
Sting deserves that WrestleMania moment, potentially more than one with other high profile stars and even if he was added to the Streak, it would still be the pinnacle of his career.
