Sting In WWE Is Only Needed For One Match

Sting In WWEI write a wrestling column every Monday and Friday for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. It can be found online at TribLIVE.com.

Today, I wrote about the latest rumors and how Sting in WWE is something that only needs one match, plus his future and more. The following is an excerpt:

The word on the street is WWE plans for Sting to have one match and that's it. One match against The Undertaker, and he's done.

Smart move.

Sting has increased his name value more than ever via rumor and novelty. He's the one guy that never left the old WCW/NWA for the big New York money. Morals and loyalty got in the way. What was it worth? In the end, they all confess their sins and follow the money.

Sting versus The Undertaker is a draw … once.

Both names bring people back to days of being younger and wrestling meaning more that warms the heart. With the right build, the right production, WWE can make this an epic event … once.

Less is more with Sting. Once we've seen the smoke and mirrors, once, we've seen it enough. Have you caught on with the theme of “once?”

Sting versus John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Bray Wyatt, Triple H and anyone else in fantasy booking doesn't matter. Sting doesn't do anything for them. He's not important enough for those guys to lose or beat.

A brilliantly produced rivalry, video packages and special effects make him versus The Undertaker a buyable affair. A slower and older Sting can be camouflaged by a one-time appearance. The moment he appears at a b-level pay-per-view 20 pounds overweight in his singlet — dare me to complain if the WWE Network stream crashes.

Sting is coming to WWE courtesy of two reasons.
