But no one seems to care that these two aren’t 15 years younger, probably because they’re both physical freaks, who, no doubt, have and will train hard to make sure what seems like it might be a longish-term feud goes off without a hitch (or a broken hip).
The appearance didn’t come like a #RKOOuttaNowhere, though. In July, Sting made his first official appearance with WWE on a panel alongside Hulk Hogan and Daniel Bryan. The appearance followed up a high-profile reveal that Sting was a character in the WWE 2K15 video game. Rumors of a Sting appearance at “Survivor Series” had been bubbling on wrestling blogs for a while, as well.
The Internet — including fellow wrestlers, such as “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, the Iron Sheik, current superstar Roman Reigns and more — wasn’t concerned about surprises, however. Whether the appearance was expected or not, wrestling fans responded in kind on Twitter. Even Melissa Joan Hart, who was also big in the ’90s, had something to say.
