Sting vs Hogan, Flair

Starrcade '97 or BFG '11?

Ric Flair appeared on Mark Madden’s radio show yesterday and teased wanting to face Sting for the TNA World Heavyweight Title this summer.

While it’s not etched in stone, the current plan is to have Sting vs. Hulk Hogan main event TNA’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view. This would all depend on Hogan’s health and if he can wrestle or not.

The combined age of any combination of those matches would be over 100. AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, The Pope, Matt Morgan, Robert Roode, Rob Van Dam, Mr Anderson, hell, even Bully Ray should be somehow involved. TNA is all about wrestling now, and I can wholly respect that. I like how they’re edgier than the WWE and act as a throwback to the Attitude Era. However, with the consistent booking of Sting/Hogan/Flair, they’re directly contradicting themselves. The Attitude Era was based on a youth movement. Steve Austin, the Rock, DX, Kane, the Hardcore Division, Sable: they were all so popular because everything was new. And they were young. And with Mankind and the Undertaker, who weren’t old, just older, worked so well with the young guns.

The WWE took a huge chance in pushing their brand as cutting edge and totally badass back then. Most everybody was new and the audience accepted them. If TNA truly wants to compete, they need to push the young guys over the new guys. Hogan can barely walk. Flair should never have wrestled after Mania 24. Sting can still do alright for himself, but he needs a great opponent to carry him. Yes, Hogan vs Sting might bring in an addition 100 PPV buys, but is that how you want your company to be viewed as?

TNA needs to dedicate itself to young guys. It’s the only way they’ll ever improve and make an attempt at being competition. I, for one, would rather see Roode vs Styles for the World Title instead of Sting/Hogan at Bound for Glory. Two guys that’ve been there since almost the beginning, competing for the top prize on the biggest show? Sounds like a good idea to me.

    Lionel, you never cease to amaze me. You need to sop posting on this web blog, you’re like 10-12 yrs old I’m guessing. Stop posting and let the big boys play, ok? A trivia question involves just that: A QUESTION, NO HINTS! You could not make it any more obvious that it’s Hulk Hogan, you twit! Gents, please refrain from saying stuff about Diana, she did nothing to you, and it’s in the poorest of taste. Speaking of poor taste, I would never eat a DOG’S DINNER…..which is this site!

  3. WHAT IS SOP POSTING LEARN TO SPELL! YOUR FACE IS DOGS DINNER! WHICH IS WHY I WOULD LET MY DOG BISCUIT BITE YOU’RE FACE OFF YOU DICKWAG. YOU GOT MY TRIVIA RIGHT….BUT ALL OF THAT PROVES IS THAT YOU ONLY KNOW OLD STUFF ABOUT WRESTLING SO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE JERKO!

  4. Steve McGregor

    I only know old stuff about wrestling? That’s rich Lionel, considering how you seemingly know nothing about the subject. Of all the wrestlers, you choose Jay Lethal as your favorite. You need to seriously contemplate that one my friend. Let’s not get your Alan Whickers in a twist here, he’s talented, but nowhere near has the future of say a Wade Barrett or Jack Swagger. I’ve been writing close to 30 years of my life now and I’ve seen wrestling far beyond the likes of what you’ve seen, which is more than likely the John Cena era on, judging by your lack of spelling skill and syntax in your responses. Why don’t you concentrate on graduating from middle school before you post such rubbish. Now, be a good boy and go have supper with Biscuit, because just like reading this website, you will be eating a DOG’S DINNER!

  5. Ahh Steve, it’s not Lionel’s fault that his cousin TMChalupa promised him an extra blowjob a week if he regularly commented on the site. Family hits are still hits.

    Nothing but up for this God awful site.

    JEB out…
