Ring of Honor’s David Lagana is featuring a blog over on his official website looking at how Sting almost agreed to a deal with WWE shortly after the buyout of WCW back in 2002 for Wrestlemania 18 and how “internet buzz” started this week over the cryptic video that aired on Monday Night Raw.

“Sting at Wrestlemania almost happened nine years ago. Wrestlemania 18 will always be remembered for the memorable Hogan vs. Rock battle in Toronto. That event also featured Triple H winning the undisputed World Title from Chris Jericho and Steve Austin facing NWO Scott Hall (w/Kevin Nash). Sting was approached that year to make his WWE debut and wrestle on the big event. Once he was introduced to the brand, it was pitched that at Wrestlemania 18 Sting would face Kurt Angle. If you remember, Kurt was eventually thrown into a match with Kane with little setup. The deal apparently fell apart as Sting wasn’t willing to work the full WWE schedule.”
