The city of Philadelphia has been going through quite the excitement when it comes to the sports/entertainment industry. For starters, the Eagles are headed to Super Bowl 52 in Minnesota next weekend.
Philly also hosted NXT TakeOver on Saturday, and EC3 was introduced as the latest addition to the brand. This came a day before the 2018 Royal Rumble pay-per-view, which will include the very first 30-woman battle.
On top of that, wrestling fans in the City of Brotherly Love were given quite the treat. Over the weekend, an Icons of Wrestling convention took place, and a number WWE legends were present.
Sting hasn't appeared on WWE programming since being inducted into the 2016 Hall of Fame class, so it had to be quite the thrill for fans to see him there. Sting has been relatively quiet and out of the spotlight since retiring two years ago, but the man has kept himself busy in appearing at multiple wrestling conventions.
It's safe to say that Philadelphia has enjoyed one of the most memorable weekends in wrestling history. NXT TakeOver, the Royal Rumble and a wrestling convention with a handful of legends? What more can they ask for?
Sting has emphasized that he's been pushing for a WrestleMania match against The Undertaker, but hasn't been formally cleared by WWE to go with it. The Vigilante has held off neck surgery which would end his career, hoping he'd get the chance to face the fellow wrestling legend. But at this point, a match with The Deadman will only happen in our dreams.
We know how much Sting loves showing up at wrestling conventions to show the appreciation he has for his fans. If he's not to wrestle another match, at least he's being ultra classy by showing up at conventions like this.
