The other thing that kind of irks me about the 1/3/13 promos is that they have a kind of evil dark feeling to them. I understand that they are shot this way because they are going to bring Sting back angry looking for blood, but over the last 20 years the best promos that have been dark and gritty have been introducing guys who were evil. Guys like Rellik and Mankind had great promos before their introductions because they were dark, mysterious, and best of all new. If they wanted to run a long time promo for Sting, I feel the best way to do it was shoot some new ones where they are showing him lurking in the darkness. The WCW Sting promos where he was hanging out in the rafters were best because even though they weren’t introducing someone new, they were able to show him as the bad ass that he is.
What do you guys think? Are you excited that the 1/3/13 promos are announcing the return of the Icon? or do you think like me and feel that they are blowing the opportunity for introducing a new talent with a really great promo? Let me know what you think.
As always, thanks for reading.
