WrestleMania 31 is considered an excellent show, but Sting losing his official WWE debut to Triple H left a sour taste in many fan’s mouths. WWE decided to portray the contest as a WWE vs. WCW, and after the match, following Triple H winning by hitting Sting with a sledgehammer, JBL on commentary would say “the right side won again.”
Now on the latest edition of his podcast former WWE road agent, Arn Anderson revealed that Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and JBL were told to bury Sting throughout the match.
WWE would bring Sting back in August later that year to challenge WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins’s at Night of Champions. During the match, he would be injured when he was powerbombed onto a turnbuckle and was required to have surgery to correct cervical spinal stenosis, which sadly ended his career.
