When the official announcement was initially made, many were under the belief that WWE would have Ric Flair inducting Sting into their hall of fame at Wrestlemania 32 weekend. It made a lot of sense on several levels. For starters, the two of them had one of the greatest rivalries in the history of professional wrestling. Flair helped put Sting on the map. The move also makes sense because Flair is a great talker and is still popular with fans.

There was a bit of confusion last night in regards to the whereabouts of Sting. WWE posted on their official website that the legendary performer was going to be kicking off Monday Night Raw with a major announcement. That never happened. Sources are saying that the former world heavyweight champion was already back at home in Dallas. He was resting and healing up from his injuries.

When you enter a wrestling ring, there's a chance of injury. That possibility goes up even higher when you are 56 years old and have spent 30 years doing it. At Night of Champions, Sting suffered some sort of injury. No official announcement has been made, but the belief is that it is either a neck or spinal injury. The legend is still booked for another appearance on Monday Night Raw, but those plans might be changed.

A rather interesting omission from the upcoming tag team championship tournament in TNA is Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy. As of right now, the brothers have not been officially announced as entrants. From what we know, both guys are under contract to the promotion for at least another year, so that can be ruled out as a factor for their absence. Management could also be saving their announcement to build up the anticipation from the audience.

It looks like things are pointing up for WWE. During a shareholders announcement, the company revealed that several of their high ranking executives were given raises. Vince McMahon got a nice boost in salary, and his right hand man Kevin Dunn did as well. The CFO and the head of their movie studios were two others receiving raises. Triple H received a raise as well, but interestingly enough, there was no mention of Stephanie McMahon.

Every year around this time, wrestling fans from around the world sit on pins and needles, in anticipation of an announcement from WWE regarding the Undertaker and his availability at Wrestlemania. While it has not been ruled out that he will work a match at the show, company officials have basically ruled out the possibility of him doing his much anticipated and rumored match against Sting. Age and health are preventing that.
