Hogan and Sting rumoured to be heading to the WWE
- September 2013
rumours have began, and we sure didn't start them.
no secret that the Hulkster's and the Stinger's TNA
Wrestling contracts are up in about a week, and that
TNA Wrestling is cutting budgets and talent.
and Sting are "legacy" talent, or as anyone
would tell you, legit living legends of professional
WWE COO Triple H has mentioned, Hogan will always
be the face of the WWE for many people, especially
those who watched through the 90's.
is one of the most recognizable people on the planet
- full stop, and wrestling fans have been calling
on Sting to join the WWE for decades. It's almost
happened a few times, but the timing and / or the
deal was off.
time around on the surface the timing looks fantastic
for Hogan and Sting, and let's not forget WWE WrestleMania
XXX (30) will be wanting to load up the card for his
April, both from an in ring, special attraction and
and Sting have also been complimentary of the WWE
product for many months, and hardly a week goes by
where the WWE doesn't do a website or TV mention of
both Hogan and Sting.
face it - if the WWE to brass wants Hogan and Sting
enough (and it looks like their fans do), there's
going to be plenty of financial incentive (and job
security), to get them to make the jump.
and Sting would be awesome for the WWE in so many
ways. TV ratings will go up, as will merchandise sales,
and the company will also likely pick up more casual
or previous viewers. Think of the buy rates and wrestling
angles that the two greats could be factored into,
and the McMahon power struggle seems like a perfect
two have faced off previously, both at WCW Starcade
1997, as well as in TNA Wrestling, and while its extremely
unlikely that they would have a one on one match in
the WWE, perhaps a tag match with the likes of The
Undertaker and whoever is the HWT or tag champs could
be done, but storylines would be the main focus with
these potential signings.
current WWE talent might not be totally wrap if Hogan
and Sting were to sign, but the WWE is currently light
on iconic and legendary pro wrestling legends, and
these two greats fit the bill than just about anyone
else on the planet.
the sake of the fans, let's hope that McMahon, Hunter
and the rest of the powers that be get the job done.
gonna do when the Hulkster and Stinger run wild in
the WWE? Wooooo!
