Dallas-Based Wrestling Icon Sting Popped Up On Raw Last Night. Also? Wrestlemania Is Coming To Town.
We knew heading into last night’s Monday Night Raw event at the American Airlines Center that a number of old-timer from back in the WWE and WCW glory days would be stopping by to make an appearance at this, the final Raw before next Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view. And, just being real here, we also knew that those geezers probably weren’t going to look as great as they used to.
Fortunately, there were a few pleasant surprises. For starters, Scott Hall (formerly the great Razor Ramon) didn’t look nearly as beaten-down as he has of late, which was nice to see. Then there was the fact that Billy Gunn, who we knew was going to be in attendance, was joined by his old New Age Outlaws tag team partner, “The Road Dogg” Jesse James. Better yet was the unannounced cameo of the now-Dallas-based wrestling icon Sting, who kindly got off of his couch and showed up to the AAC just in time to throw the night’s big headlining match into havoc and next week’s Royal Rumble storylines into a tizzy.
Of course, master storytellers that the higher-ups at the WWE are, the company saved the best news for last: This morning, as the pro wrestling monopoly rides out of town and onto the next stop, it announced that it’ll be coming back to town in an even more massive capacity sooner than later.
That’s right: The company will bring the 32nd installment of Wrestlemania, its biggest event of them all, to Arlington’s AT&T Stadium on Sunday, April 3, 2016.
Or, in other words, if you didn’t use last night’s excuse as an excuse to get back into the wrestling that you so loved and adored as a kid, you’ve now got 16 months to properly ready yourself.
Don’t fight it. Let it be what you’re gonnna do, brother.
