One of the more perplexing results from last year’s WrestleMania was seeing Sting – in his first match in a WWE ring – lose to Triple H after multiple bits of interference from D-Generation X and the New World Order. The commentary for the match surrounded that this was the “final chapter” in WWE vs. WCW – a war that was over 15 years ago.
Scott Hall, who was part of the match with the nWo, did an interview recently with Extra Mustard, and discussed the WrestleMania match and how Sting was screwed by Triple H and Vince McMahon.
“You need to remember that Vince is never going to go with something he didn’t create,” he says. “But we didn’t get anything done at the rehearsal the night before, so WrestleMania day, there were tents in the parking lot set up with rings for rehearsal. So we’re all in there again, and I’m next to Hulk [Hogan] on the ring apron and Triple H is going over the match and then he goes, “OK, he’ll break the sledgehammer, then I’ll hit him with the sledgehammer, and cover him, 1-2-3. I looked at Hulk, and Hulk looked at me, and I was thinking, ‘Sting, what kind of lawyer do you have, bro? You’re coming in the door doing a job? You weren’t even guaranteed to go over?’ That’s Vince just reminding you who won, even if he’s going to make money the other way.”
Sting wrestled one more match last year against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Sting was injured during the match, which Hall noted in the interview was an “answered prayer for him.”
