TNA Bound for Glory 2011: Why Is Hulk Hogan vs. Sting Even Being Considered?

Richard CianciosoContributor IIIMay 12, 2011

Bound for Glory is TNA's biggest show of the year.  It should be an event where TNA uses all of the weapons at its disposal and put on its biggest show of the year. But alas, TNA never fails to disappoint its fans.

Recently, Hulk Hogan has been training to get back into ring shape so that he might have the chance to wrestle once again.  Most people are probably cringing in their seats at the thought of watching the 57-year-old Hogan lace his boots up once more.

You would think that, even if Hogan did step into the middle of the ring and face someone, it would be a young, rising star that he could give a rub to.  But no, this is Hulk Hogan we are talking about.  There is no way he could possibly do something great like that for the business that built him into the star he became.

The man that is being discussed to face Hogan at TNA's biggest pay-per-view of the year is none other than Sting.  Yes, the 52-year-old Sting.

Now, I know that they are both big names in the industry, and they have pulled in a lot of money in their days.  Hey, the buildup to their match at Starrcade 1997 was amazing and well-thought-out.  Then came the match.  What a stinker WCW put on the night of December 27, 1997 at Starrcade. 

The match was slow-paced and had nothing special about it at all.  Both men could still put on a decent match back then, but they both failed.  Then came the ending with Bret Hart coming down and proclaiming that he wasn't going to let someone else get screwed like he did. He restarted the match, counted to three and declared Sting the winner.

If TNA thinks that pitting these two legends against each other once again is a good idea, then maybe they should rehire Dr. Stevie because they would need a checkup fast, real fast.
