Sting told the Associated Press that his Wrestlemania match against Triple H could be his last:
I’m feeling like this is probably going to be my last one. We’ll see how everyone reacts. If I’m asked to do one more at Survivor Series or maybe even WrestleMania next year, at this point, I would consider it. But realistically, this is going to be my last one.
Here’s a video of Sting working out for the match and looking ripped. It’s not yet clear whether he’ll be wearing a t-shirt, but if his torso is such a problem I don’t see why they can’t add some padding or a Shield like vest. He might not need any of it though, judging from the video:
I’m so proud of Sting at the age of 57. I met him when he was with the Ultimate Warrior as the Blade Runners. They were going to be our version of the Road Warriors, but unfortunately Jim Hellwig got sideways and left the company. Sting stuck around and became a heel, and we’ve been friends since the mid 80s. There is no one I have more respect for as a human being. I had him signed. People ask why I didn’t have him signed after WCW went belly up. He had guaranteed money from Time Warner as long as he didn’t sign with another wrestling company. But I couldn’t get him closed because we were a TV-14 product. He wouldn’t come because of his religious belief.
