WWE Rumors: Scott Hall Reveals Odd Story About Sting And Triple H At ‘WrestleMania 31’

The short amount of time that the legendary icon known as Sting has spent in WWE has not been overly successful. So far, he’s 0-2 and suffered a serious neck injury back at Night of Champions that put him on the shelf for months. The loss to Triple H are WrestleMania 31 was one that shocked the world and honestly, it shocked Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan too.

At the big event last year, Sting was having his first ever match in WWE and so many people thought there was no way he could possibly suffer a loss in it. Then again, there were those that thought it was inevitable that Triple H wasn’t going to lose.

Still, stranger things have happened in WWE.

The match went on and it wasn’t a technical masterpiece by any sense of the imagination, but it was decent enough for the historial aspect of it. It was completely overbooked and included run-ins from both D-Generation X and the nWo so the sides could be evened up.

Not only was it Sting’s first ever WWE match, but it pretty much brought the “Monday Night Wars” to the ultimate showdown as Monday Night Raw faced off with Monday Nitro. Still, it was hard to believe that Sting was really going to lose the match that fans had waited so long for.

Scott Hall was there and backed up Sting as a member of the nWo. Hall recently spoke with Sports Illustrated and discussed that match and how awkward it was before everything went down.

“I was there and obviously involved in his match at WrestleMania last year.

We’re rehearsing the match in Cali last year at Levi Stadium, and it’s the Kliq and the New Age Outlaws out there, and we all know each other. And then there’s Sting, who doesn’t know anybody. He’s an outsider. I just think he never felt comfortable there. Being hurt was answered prayer for him-just let it end.”

Hall goes on to say something that a lot of people who watch or know wrestling have gotten familiar with – “Vince (McMahon) is never going to go with something he didn’t create.”

From that point, Hall said that the group were all rehearsing in some tents in the parking lot that had wrestling rings set up for the performers. That was when Hall dropped another part of the story from last year in which What Culture reveals that Sting just wasn’t comfortable at all.

“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?'”

Again, it’s Vince McMahon making sure that something that he didn’t create wasn’t going to go over. No matter what was accomplished by bringing Sting into WWE, it was a reminder that McMahon had won and the money was going to come in.

Yes, it was a great moment in wrestling, but the match between Sting and Triple H at WrestleMania 31 didn’t end as it should have ended. Now, Sting is going into the WWE Hall of Fame, as he was announced as the first inductee for this year.

Unfortunately, he’s going into the hall with his legendary status in WCW and an 0-2 record in WWE.

Sting may honestly never step foot in the ring again as an active performer as his injuries and age may be truly working against him now. No, his history and legacy are not ruined at all, but from Scott Hall to the casual WWE fan, everyone knew he should have gone over Triple H at WrestleMania 31.
