Former WWE Creative Writer Explains Why Sting Deserves To Be Booked Better By WWE

Former WWE/WCW/TNA creative writer Vince Russo has posted a new blog on CRSWrestling explaining why Sting deserves to be booked much better than WWE has done so far.

Down below is an excerpt from the blog:

“Fast forward a couple of years later—WWE. After holding out for 15 years . . . Sting finally decides to go to work for Vince McMahon. I’d be lying to you if I didn’t admit that there were tears in my eyes when I witness Sting come out in front of that crowd at WrestleMania. For years I was there when he came out to only a handful at Universal Studios—this is what this legend deserved. Sadly, knowing Vince and his massive ego, I knew deep down going in that Sting wasn’t going to win this match. To Vince, even after 15 years, he was still getting off on beating Ted Turner, and Sting was basically the last and biggest pawn. But, as unbelievably sad as that is—it really didn’t matter. Sting was getting the send-off in front of a massive audience, and win, or lose, I was glad he was going out that way. I also knew that the W meant nothing to Sting, because in the almost decade that I had worked with him—he was always business.

Fast forward to just a few weeks ago. Yeah, I was kind of surprised that the WWE was wheeling Sting out again. Why? Because they had lowered his stock with the loss to Hunter, and now a match against the Champion just really didn’t make much sense. This clearly showed that it was Vince’s ego that defeated Sting at WrestleMania and nothing else. Why would you beat the guy who was going to eventually get a shot at your Champion a few months later, and put over the guy who isn’t even close to wrestling again. That’s ego in its rawest form. Sting got beat, because Sting was WCW and not WWE. I’m sitting here not even believing that I wrote that last line—ridiculous.”

    FFS, seriously?! Sting took the money! He knew exactly what was going to happen, he had the ball in his court, make what ever deal he wanted, could have just made some appearances to make sure shills enough merch and blu rays, to fans just grateful he finally came in. But he must of agreed to to the stupid bookings, after all those with an ounce of intelligence know how wwe works and this shows Vinnie for who he is (yet people act surprised?lol). Unless he was facing Taker, it really made no relevance who Sting fought.

    Love him or hate him, Russo is once again spot on…

    The way WWE has dealt with sting has been appauling.
