stingSting – One Step Up

It's incredible how one man's stock rises so much, every single year, at the same exact time, without him even lifting a finger or doing anything to cause it. "Sting to WWE" rumors during 'Mania season are becoming cliche at this point.

That doesn't stop us from believing though, does it?

And why should we? Stop, that is. The fact that it has NOT happened yet is crazier than the fans who start drinking the Kool-Aid once a year. You would think Sting's ability to resist and evade WWE all this time would eat Vince up inside. 

Being the massive Sting mark that I am, I truly hope he finds his way to a Mania match before he hangs it up. Taker vs Sting makes the most sense because it can be neatly contained in a one-off match. Sting full-time doesn't interest me. 

However, neither Sting or Taker have many years left, so it's truly becoming a "now or never" situation. With Lesnar and Bryan leading the charge to potentially face Taker this year at Mania, and maybe even next, "never" is becoming more and more likely.
