Two Reasons Why Sting MAY Be The Mystery Person In The 2-21-11 promo

It is a hot topic being discussed all over the YWC and especially on this site. Who is the guy in the 2-21-11 promo? Is it a return promo for Undertaker, is it a debut promo for Sting, or is it a promo for someone else entirely? For all we know, it could be any one of these possibilities. It has been pretty hard to predict what WWE is going to do lately and who knows what might happen with creative's history of changing things at the last minute. I owe the reporters of this site for informing me of that.
So when it comes down to it, who do I think is the guy in the promo? Well, unless you didn't see the title or can't read period (lol) you already know my pick. Sting. Now of course, for all those who are familiar with my blogs, I never do things without backing up my points. Because let's be honest. Here on the internet, it is not enough to say "you just like something about wrestling" anymore. Now you HAVE to prove yourself otherwise these blood-thristy internet fans will prey on you like crazy. So, below are two reasons why I think Sting is the guy in the promo. Let's get started.
Reason #1: It is not your typical promo for Undertaker, but it is for Sting.
-- Now, hopefully everyone has realized by now that this promo is a bit different from your past undertaker promos. It is MORE on the mysterious side and less on the eerie, horror film side that Taker promos are usually focused on. On top of that, where is the gong? Where is the cross? Where is everything that makes an Undertaker promo.... an Undertaker promo? Now here is something VERY obvious that really threw me off. If it is Taker, what the hell is he doing at a wooden house in the middle of nowhere? People could say it may be his childhood home where he and Kane lived ... but didn't he burn that down? I also caught a glimpse of his boots and they don't remind me of Taker. I know someone will come on here and say, "Well, that would ruin the whole mysterious feel behind it" and for those that say that, stop and think for a second. WHY would WWE want to make a mysterious promo for Undertaker? They don't need to do that. For one, WWE usually does not hype a return for Taker because he usually just pops up. Also, when they do make a return promo for him, they make it VERY obvious it is Taker returning. In this promo, it is a bit vague. It is way too on the mysterious side and less on the eerie, scary side.
On the other hand, Sting had a similar promo to the 2-21-11 promos in 1997 for WCW Starrcade. He was facing Hogan and Sting was seen in a wooden house similar to the one in the promo. It was raining, just like in the promo. His attire is similar to the one in the promo. Also, it captures the same mysterious feel of the 2-21-11 promo as well. So I'm more inclined to think this is Sting than Taker.
Real quick note. I will not easily be swayed all because "There Ain't No Grave" played in the second promo of 2-21-11. I laugh at how many people have easily changed their minds all because of a song. Yes, I know it is the same song used for Taker vs. HBK and it does make sense to use it in a Taker return promo. Then again, that doesn't explain why it is so mysterious. What’s the point of making it mysterious? Why not just acknowledge it as Taker like they've done in all the rest of his promos? I'm sorry but that is not enough for me and I refuse to let myself be swayed by A SONG. At the end of the day people, it is just a song. Most likely a swerve to throw everyone off.
Reason #2 - One more match. Why not at Wrestlemania?
-- It is no secret that Sting does not plan on being in the wrestling business much longer. In fact, he may indeed be walking that fine line of retirement. So here is my thing. If he is going to go out, why not go out with one last match in WWE and at Wrestlemania; the grand daddy of them all? To top it all off, why not do it in a match against The Undertaker? That’s just SCREAMS history in the making. It won’t require much build up at all. Their histories already make the match a classic. Just have them comfort each other once or twice before then and cut a promo against each other. It would be a wrestling fan's dream match for ALL ages.
I mean, why not? It is just one match. It is not like he is going to work there for 3 years or something. It is just one match at the grandest stage of them all in a familiar city he knows all too well.
Another thing that would make this move awesome. It’s been said Sting would NEVER go to WWE because of the night The Rock 'buried' Booker T in 2001. What a story it would be if Sting finally swallowed his pride, went to WWE, headlined it in his final match in wrestling ever at Wrestlemania, and got inducted into the Hall of Fame. What a way to go out. Who wouldn't want that? Above all else, WWE has watered down themselves to where Sting is free to do what he needs to do and stay within in the limits of his Christian faith. He wants to be a role model for the kids, why not do it on a PG show?
Now as hard as some of you TNA fans won't admit it, I'm sorry but TNA is NOT the place you want to end your career in. I guarantee you before their careers end, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy, Ken Anderson, Matt Morgan, and others will return to WWE and end their careers there. Just like Booker T and "Diesel" Kevin Nash.
So those are my reasons why I think the guy in the promo is Sting. I could be wrong, but I will not be moved until I see who debuts on 2-21-11. Yes, I'll admit. The reason why I am so stubborn about this IS because I want to see Taker vs. Sting at Wrestlemania and I will continue to be stubborn until I am proven wrong on 2-21-11. That, my friends, is that.
