WWE Full Match Sting vs. Triple H WrestleMania 31

  • 4 years ago
As leader of The Authority and COO of WWE, Triple H is constantly looking forward to the future. When Sting made his WWE debut at Survivor Series – nearly 14 years after WCW closed its doors – The Game saw the past rearing its head and decided it was time to bury WCW’s legacy once and for all. Ironically, The Cerebral Assassin used the past, in the form of D-Generation X, to assist him in victory against WCW’s franchise player.

During his tenure in WCW, Sting was always known for his showmanship , especially when he descended from the rafters of arenas all over the world. Though he didn't descend from any rafters in Santa Clara, the sound of pounding drums echoed through Levi’s® Stadium heralding Sting’s first entrance on The Grandest a Stage of Them All. Displaying the charisma that garnered him legions of fans throughout his career, The Vigilante cupped his hands over his mouth and let out a passionate “WOO!” to the delight of the WWE Universe.

However, if there’s one thing that’s a given at WrestleMania, it’s that Triple H is guaranteed to have an entrance that can only be defined by one word: epic. The King of Kings did not disappoint. Terminator robots from the upcoming blockbuster “Terminator: Genisys” lined the entrance stage, and The Cerebral Assassin’s mind games were in full effect. As Skynet targeted Sting, The Game rose from the ground donning a cybernetic headpiece. But it wasn't just the Terminator theme that captivated the capacity crowd of 76,976; it was also the unexpected appearance of the very individual Triple H ushered into the WWE Hall of Fame 24 hours earlier – The Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger – letting everyone know it was time to play The Game.

Following the jaw-dropping entrances of both icons, the WWE Universe was finally ready to witness the showdown they thought would never happen. Two of the most prominent stars of their respective organizations during the Monday Night War were finally colliding at WrestleMania. As the opening bell sounded, Triple H and Sting sized each other up to the WWE Universe’s ecstatic chants of “this is awesome.” Taking a moment to let the adrenaline pulse through their veins, they finally locked up and Sting gained the early advantage.

Although Triple H briefly took control, there was some unfamiliarity between the two and Sting capitalized. One of the greatest in-ring competitors of all time, The King of Kings quickly adapted and unleashed a brutal flurry of strikes that took Sting down. With momentum in his favor, Triple H executed his high knee strike, but like he had so many times against WCW’s biggest stars, Sting stood straight up, unfazed. Shocked and reeling from The Vigilante’s resilience, The Cerebral Assassin was once again left recalibrating his strategy against the six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion.

Once the battle spilled to the outside, The Game drove Sting into the steel steps, allowing him to regain the upper hand.
