It’s been awhile since I’ve written a wrestling post. But this merits attention. When I started this blog a few years back, to amuse myself and hone my writing skills I did a fantasy booking scenario where Sting came to WWE.

I laid out on a week-to-week basis, everything that would’ve been done had Sting become a full-time member of WWE’s roster. Was it good? That’s for you to decide. I consider what I did my scratching of the itch to be a WWE Writer. I still want to write wrestling, (and may in another format ;)) but if it doesn’t happen, at least I know I put my ideas out there. Then something happened.

At Survivor Series on November 23rd, Sting made his first appearance in a WWE ring. And he did it to conclude a major story. I screamed. I couldn’t believe it. The moment I dreamed of was here and it didn’t disappoint. Sting laid out Triple H, allowing Dolph Zigger to pin Seth Rollins and free the WWE Universe from the oppression of the Authority.

Below, divided into seven phases (each representing a “book”) is the week by week story of the WWE in 2010 had Sting signed a one year deal. Each week a chapter told in script format.

So does the arrival of Sting affect the WWE? Is Sting a face or heel? What happens on January 4th? Who headlines Wrestlemania? Who are the Champions?  How is the Nexus affected? Does he face the Undertaker? It’s all there, along with the stories of the entire WWE roster, Guest Hosts, and some surprising arrivals.

Maria Kanellis won our hearts as the cute and ditzy backstage interviewer on “Monday Night Raw” who loved watching paint dry. But as time went by Maria proved she was more than just a pretty face. She showed how tough she was by taking brutal bumps at the hands of both female and male wrestlers, all while engaging in a hilarious on screen romance with Santino Marella. It wasn’t long before Maria caught the eyes of PLAYBOY, who made her a cover girl in 2008, and Donald Trump who cast her on “The Celebrity Apprentice.” It was also around this time that I conducted my first interview with Maria for Coed Magazine.  This year Maria, along with former Divas Jillian Hall and Taryn “Tiffany” Terrell, embark on a nationwide appearance tour called “Diva Mania.” I recently got to talk to Maria again about the tour, her WWE tenure, and plans for the future in an exclusive interview.

Give thanks and Support Our Troops especially during the Holiday season by visiting the USO’s website.
