Sting debuts for WWE at San Diego Comic Con 2014

When I arrived in San Diego last week for Comic Con International, I naturally made seeing the WWE panel on Thursday morning one of my priorities. The panel promised “Incredible guest appearances by Hulk Hogan, Daniel Bryan, Michael Cole, Paul Heyman, and you never know what else will be unveiled.”

I was excited to have another opportunity to “Yes” for Daniel Bryan and see the Immortal Hulk Hogan once again. Little did I know that the former WWE Champions would be only a side note once the panel concluded.

I got up early on Thursday, threw on my CM Punk gear (Mark) and headed on down to Room 6DE at the San Diego Convention Center and I was not disappointed. Daniel Bryan spoke about his injury, Hulk Hogan waxed poetically about WrestleMania XVIII against the Rock and Paul Heyman was just damn entertaining. After a really good panel the boys from Mattel told us to hold tight because they had a special announcement following the panel. They threw up on the screen this figure.

The crowd clapped enthusiastically at the appearance of Sting on the Mattel line. After a few seconds Sting’s music hits and the attendees begin gathering their things to leave the panel. Then it happened.

Sting waltzed onto the stage and right into the WWE history books. The fans went nuts realizing what they are witnessing, including myself. It was a surreal, completely unexpected moment that I was lucky enough to share with those 500 or 600 others.

Sting answered a few questions and stated he isn’t here just to sit around, he wants to wrestle, and he has a certain opponent in mind (Undertaker ::cough cough::). The fans washed over Sting, Daniel Bryan and Hogan with applause and cheers. A truly chill inducing moment I will never forget.

Be sure to listen to Episode 93 of “Podcast of the Immortals” to hear about my Comic Con experiences including the WWE panel and meeting CM Punk!
