Well there have been negotiations with Sting, TNA just removed him from their roster, Sting said he'd want Taker as his last match, and said his favorite number is "31". That combined with Sting actually being in New Orleans, and the post-Mania Raw featuring returns like the Rock or Lesnar, lead people to believe he'd actually be there.
It's not as crazy as sometimes when people think he's coming, considering he was actually in New Orleans, but either Lesnar's breaking the streak changed Sting's mind, Undertaker's injury made him not appear and made WWE save Sting for later, or the whole thing was just a big coincidence.
Ah, thanks for the info. I knew Sting was off the TNA roster, but I didn't know he was in New Orleans. I guess at the point it's still a mystery then. Perhaps Taker being legit hurt made them have to change any plans reveal Sting tonight, or it was a coincidence the whole time.
Holy shit the Shield in alliance with Daniel Bryan??? God DAMN!
At first I was really fucking worried because I had seen no sign of the shield for the longest time. I was about to make my own cry of injustice for a sec. I was relieved to see they had a backstage segment. So it is Shield vs evolution essentially now. This is pretty fucking awesome man!
The way those three just circled around HHH like vultures to a dying dog. Man that was so fucking beautiful. Also dat "Hounds of Justice" chant...and them keeping dem masks.
I am more than happy with this post-mania Raw.
