Something interesting caught my eye this morning. I've heard one unfounded claim that Sting might be WWE-bound. This is interesting as there have been no talks, no rumors, no anything to confirm this. While some would consider this a welcome morsel of news, I look at it for what it is, false. My thoughts have been crystal clear about Sting going to WWE, particularly in their current state. If there was ever a time to go north, now is not that time. That time passed a long while ago. Wrestlemania 19 would have been the best year as The Undertaker was in a Tag Team bout and a Sting confrontation would have stacked the card to the rafters. It probably would have gone down as the biggest Wrestlemania on record. If you were to look at the card from that year, the card looked like this.....

Rey Mysterio vs. Matt Hardy for the Cruiserweight Title
The Undertaker and Nathan Jones vs. Big Show and A-Train
Jazz vs. Trish Stratus vs. Victoria for the Women's Championship
Los Guerreros vs. The World's Greatest Tag Team vs. Chris Benoit/Rhyno for the WWE Tag Team Titles
Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels
Booker T vs. Triple H for the World Heavyweight Title
Hulk Hogan vs. Vince McMahon
The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin
Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship

Someone try to tell me that Sting as The Undertaker's opponent wouldn't have made the card the single most perfect card ever to exist, I dare you. It would have made the blend of WCW vs. WWE guys the most amazing showdown to ever exist. As it stood, the event was amazing. It's one of my favorite Wrestlemanias with probably the best card on paper. Legends, icons, and history makers alike filled the night and WWE has never seen those heights since.

Then, however, is not now and Sting's place is in TNA, even if a break is on the horizon for the icon. I will say this, though, Sting's contract isn't up until after Bound for Glory and even then, the prospects of him going north are slim and none.
