Sting challenged Triple H to a match at WrestleMania
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Triple H wasted no time pontificating about what he thought was Sting’s motivation for coming to WWE. Finally face-to-face with the individual who has caused The Authority a great deal of strife since Survivor Series, The Game discussed Sting’s legacy, citing WWE’s purchase of WCW and his own legacy overshadowing The Stinger’s. With that, the WWE COO left the face-painted franchise of WCW with a simple ultimatum. Sting could turn around and walk away and Triple H would ensure Sting’s legacy remain in-tact through WWE Network, DVDs, action figures, video games and even the WWE Hall of Fame.
Conversely, Sting could remain in the ring and Triple H would make him sorry he ever set foot in WWE. The former WCW Champion remained expressionless, steadfast in his silence and The Game realized there was only one way for the situation to go.
Attacking The Vigilante initially proved to be a mistake, Sting beat Triple H to the punch, but The Cerebral Assassin took down his adversary and unleashed the rage that has been pent up since Survivor Series. With Sting reeling, The King of Kings reached under the ring and retrieved his signature sledgehammer. As he re-entered the ring, he was stopped in his tracks as Sting’s legendary black baseball bat made its first appearance in WWE.
With the very weapon that took out The nWo on numerous occasions pressed firmly under Triple H’s chin, The Game was backed into the corner and forced to drop his sledgehammer. Sting then made his own ultimatum, pointing to the WrestleMania sign, issuing the challenge the WWE Universe has been waiting for.
Sting turned to leave and The Cerebral Assassin attacked but was quickly taken down by the bat. Bringing The Game back to his feet, The Stinger put him down once more with the Scorpion Death Drop.
Moments after the confrontation, it was announced that at WrestleMania, not only will Sting battle Triple H in a veritable dream match, but the icon of WCW will compete inside a WWE ring for the first time ever.
