Spoiler Alert: This article contains spoilers for the 1/23/2014 edition of Impact Wrestling.
After Thursday night’s live Genesis episode of Impact Wrestling, TNA taped the second part of Genesis, which will air next Thursday. According to spoilers from AllWrestlingNews.com, Sting lost the title match to Magnus, meaning his contract with TNA is done in storyline.
This news comes at an interesting time, as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that Sting is once again in talks with WWE, and that Sting has not renewed his deal with TNA behind-the-scenes. Which means, fans may finally get the chance to see Sting at WrestleMania.
Sting is regarded by some as the best wrestler of this era to never work for Vince McMahon and the WWE. If he were to sign a deal to work at WrestleMania XXX, he would instantly become a top contender to challenge The Streak and face The Undertaker.
However, he might be better off facing a young talent. Dolph Ziggler is a guy right now with no serious direction, if WWE is looking for somebody to pair Sting up with, Ziggler may be a good option. Ziggler sells very well, and his athleticism would make up for any limitations on this match due to Sting’s age.
Another interesting option could be Daniel Bryan. Sting has a long history of battling factions, be they the nWo or the Aces & Eights. If Bryan isn’t involved in the title match, he could battle Sting one-on-one, or they could team up against Bryan’s faction foes, The Wyatt Family.
This would be a brilliant move by the WWE, Sting is a legend, and he could draw interest from those who were WCW fans during the Monday Night Wars, which could add serious pay-per-view buys and WWE Network subscriptions. Also keep in mind that Sting is an active wrestler, they wouldn’t be pulling some guy out of nowhere. Sting still wrestles semi-regularly for TNA, and would be ready to contribute immediately.
Whether it be The Undertaker, Ziggler, Bryan, or anybody else on the WWE roster, the sight of Sting in a WWE ring, in front of 70,000 people would be a WrestleMania moment.
