Sting being apart of this, being a legend, TNA Hall of Famer, and 15-time World Champion, is what puts Aces & 8s over as a big deal. This is the same with Sting being run down by Fortune at one time in 2010, Immortal, Planet Jarrett, AJ Styles in 09, and even Bobby Roode last year. Hence why people say he's the (booking wise) TNA version of John Cena, where he ran into Nexus, Batista, CM Punk, Team Ziggler, Edge, and now Ryback.
I'm not crazy about the quality of the match. It'll be lucky just hitting 3 3/4 stars. What I am crazy about, is what it will do to Bully Ray as far as star power is concerned. That's the point of Sting being the #1 contender, and not Magnus, Joe, Storm, or Eric Young. They could've done Angle, but he's off working with Garret & Wes, and even HE isn't put on Sting's level by TNA. Putting prestige on Aces & 8s and Bully Ray is the purpose of this match taking place.

Because he's a heel

Give it a stipulation and it'll pass. The Boston crowd will pay to see Sting, even if they know the match will be below average.

Re: Are you guys looking forward to Sting vs Bully Ray at Slammiversary

I love Sting, but seriously I'm very disappointed with this decision. They hyped Morgan so well just to job him to Sting, c'mon. Stinger shouldnt be main eventing ppvs in 2013, especially in a World Title match. I'd like to see somebody else as the challanger right now...

WITH a heel turn.
Heel vs Heel main events never work on PPV, especially on a big PPV like Slammiversary.

I don't like Sting, never have, never will. I thought he was average in Crockett, I thought he was average in WCW and his TNA run has been a long mess.

That said, Sting draws money, and if TNA wants a decent gate in Boston then having Sting headline makes sense.

The best thing they can do for Morgan now is have him destroy someone like Rob Terry and pin him clean. He needs to go on a wrecking path.

Yeah and the match sucked, regardless of what happened after it.

The one defense wasn't great either, and there's really not been a whole lot going on b/c there's been a bit of a lull up until the no 1 contender was announced. First few weeks were good though, and there's potential if they give Ray a good opponent post Slammy. Shame it'll probably be Morgan though.

He needs to leave again. Putting the two worst workers in the company together in a match wouldn't be great either.

People say this, but how much prestige or legitimacy is Bully actually going to gain? It's not like he's some young up-and-comer who's never had a big win like when Angle put over Lethal, this is one of the most recognizable guys from ECW and a well-known guy from his WWE stint. It'll be a win, it'll move the story along but that's about it.

Oh, and if have a group that's been the main angle for nearly a year and you're still trying to add prestige to it, then you know why it's sucked for most of that year.

No. Joe or even Angle should be in going after the title at Slammy.
