I honestly can't see this match happening at ER, it's got to be a headline match on a main PPV
Why would Vince waste their match at SummerSlam? Lex Luger (Sting's best friend) said that Sting doesn't have a problem in losing to Taker at WM. This match is 20 years in the making. You have the 'franchise of WCW', 'the Icon' Sting vs. 'the cornerstone of WWF/E', 'the Phenom' the Undertaker. The biggest DREAM match ever, a huge money maker. A 2nd match at WM between them would be pointless and nobody will care. Sting vs. Taker - WrestleMania 31 or GTFO!I said this before, but they should have Sting vs Taker at SummerSlam, with Sting going over and then again at Wrestlemania 31 in a Streak vs Career match in which Taker goes over. It'd give the story time to breathe and allows Sting to actually get a win in WWE rather than his debut match be Taker at Mania and losing.
But if it happens on another PPV would it still be a filler PPV?Wrestlemania or bust. It doesn't deserve to be wasted on the other PPVs that are noting but filler
Taker/Rock has happened before, Sherlock. It's not a dream match, go watch King of The Ring 1999 or No Way Out 2002 for further proof.If ER is good enough for Brock and his return, it is good enough for a sting who hasn't been relevant since 01 in the main stream.
Plus Rock is rumored to retire next year and be inducted, he is way better than sting across the board and more meaningful if you wanted to build the dream match of Taker vs Icon
Rock is a hugely Hollywood star. Sting hasn't been relevant since. 01. He's not this huge draw. He has no wwe back story. Oh yeah and he can't go, he couldn't even go in 97 with a year to prep at a top notch level.Taker/Rock has happened before, Sherlock. It's not a dream match, go watch King of The Ring 1999 or No Way Out 2002 for further proof.
Sting/Taker is THE dream match. It HAS to happen at Wrestlemania 31. Even Summerslam is too small to host it, let alone Extreme Rules.
