It wont be one for the ages, but from a booking standpoint this makes sense. They are trying to build morgan and they wanna keep him strong. My prediction Sting will be run over clean by bully.
If they really want to built Morgan it makes no sense. Whats the sense of being a credible challanger after Slammiversary, when he was cleanly defeated via submission by 50+ year old person, who will fail to take the belt off from Bully?
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.
He was used in a good way in the beginning of TNA's existence - he putted TNA on the map, acutally. But then, lets say, since 2007 he was booked very poorly. He should put over Daniels at Slammiversary 2007, Samoa Joe at Bound For Glory 2008 and many others. I dont think he's a draw nowadays and if someone really want to pay for a ticket/ppv to see Sting, that person still would buy it if he would be advertised on the card.
Why have tna put Sting in the main event of Slammy?
Firstly i have to say that Sting is actually one of my favourite wrestlers EVER!
But in this case you have to look at it realistically.
Yes Stings a legend, gets BIG pops and Ray beating him would raise Rays credibility.
BUT he IS in his 50s and this storyline has just been aces n 8s vs hogan and the tna 'wrestlers' taking a back seat.
Yes HH is maybe the biggest name of wrestling and i can see the Hogan father in law vs Bully but he should stand back abit and have guys like storm, EY more involved too.
I think TNA should of got back the KING OF THE MOUNTAIN match.
Have hogan stack the deck against Bully Ray.
Sting wants revenge
Moragn wants his shot
Hardy could make a return? Or have Storm involved!
make it Hardy/Storm vs Sting vs Morgan vs Ray! a 4 way KOTM match
At the end Ray beats them all!
If you want Sting vs Ray have it on a special impact or something that i would like, a clash of the champions style show, instead of a big ppv
