The WWE advertised an exclusive Sting interview following Monday Night RAW on the WWE Network, with many hoping to get a sense of what’s next for the Icon.
And they got an answer, all right.
Sting has no intentions of going anywhere, and he will be taking advantage of “any opportunity the WWE throws [his] way.”
But that first opportunity isn’t exactly who you would think — it’s none other than the Bo-liever himself, Bo Dallas.
The proceedings started immediately following the end of the six-man tag main event. Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, and Ryback scored a victory over Seth Rollins, Big Show, and Kane.
Then, Sting made his way to the ring and was asked how it felt to have his first WrestleMania moment.
“Well, in a lot of ways it felt very normal, very natural. Because of you fans I feel right at home.”
Sting noted that WM 31 was the “biggest spectacle in all of sports entertainment, and there I was face-to-face with Triple H, and even though I came up short, I’m just glad to finally be able to say I was there.”
After that came the question everyone was waiting for: what does the future hold for you?
“I don’t know what the future holds but I do know this,” Sting began, but paused when the “Un-der-tak-er” chants began. “I don’t know what the future holds. I really don’t know. I don’t know what opportunities the WWE might throw my way, but whatever they do throw out, I’m gonna reach out and I’m gonna grab it. And if they don’t reach out, then it’s a crying shame as far as I’m concerned.”
If Sting had any more to say after that, he didn’t get the chance to say it, because Bo Dallas‘ music hit and he made his way to ringside with a (non)-motivational speech.
“What an honor for you to be standing in a WWE ring,” Dallas said. “You were such an idol of mine growing up. I don’t know if you remember this, but when I was a little kid, you painted my face to look just like yours, and I didn’t wash my face for days.”
Unfortunately, Dallas continued, “you lost your entire legacy in front of a record-breaking crowd.”
However, there was hope. All Sting has to do if he wants to succeed in the WWE is “bo-lieve!” Rather than come up with a crushing comeback, Sting instead grabbed Dallas by the hair and delivered a Scorpion Death Drop.
And if you didn’t subscribe to the WWE Network, that’s what you missed.
Whether this means Sting vs. Bo Dallas at Extreme Rules remains to be seen, but that’s probably the match you’re going to see. It will give the Stinger a surefire win, while allowing Dallas some experience working with a veteran.
Is that something you would want to see?
