Sting To WWE: Why Sting, WWE & Fans All Need It For Separate Reasons

Justin LaBar

The rumors of Sting signing with WWE have once again become news after new reports coming out last week. No matter how much weight to the rumor, it always gets attention and reaction out of everyone.

Every Monday and Friday I have a wrestling column in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. In today's column, I talk about how Sting, WWE and the fans—all need Sting to have a WWE match for three separate reasons.

"Sting has never wrestled for McMahon and WWE. Sting needs this. Sure, he's the best guy who NEVER worked for WWE … but what competition does he really have in that company?

Sting's had one period when he worked for the top wrestling company when WCW was beating WWE in the weekly TV ratings for more than 80 weeks in a row in the mid-1990s. For the bulk of that period, he didn't wrestle. From fall 1996 to December 1997, he stood in the rafters portraying “The Crow”-like character. He didn't say a word on the mic. I'm not saying his performance wasn't memorable, because it obviously was, but let's face reality: He's never been the major player for the top team. He's always been one of the top faces for the No. 2 company, whether it be WCW/NWA or TNA. You don't get to Cooperstown by being the best in Triple-A."

Also, in a segment on Chair Shot Reality that aired Sunday, Brian Gulish gives an interesting outlook on the Sting rumors as well as HOW WWE would book the match. See that below:
