and 20th anniversary of Raw? Kind of bad timing. Too soon after the 1000th episode. They just won't top it.
How exactly is Sting one of the two guys qualified to end Taker's streak? He's certainly not more worthy of it than Kane. If Triple H and HBK aren't gonna break it, there's no way in hell they'll let Sting do it. What would be the point? If someone were to ever break the streak it sould be someone on the fulltime roster right now who can benefit from it. Right now the only guy on the roster in that position is Punk. Imagine how much heat he would get from that alone. Not only could he talk shit about his long title run but he can also talk about how he's the only guy to beat The Undertaker and Wrestlemania. He could live off that for the rest of his career and he would be an untochable main eventer for the rest of his WWE days.

And I could see Scott Hall coming back for this one night, I mean look how many WWE guys have done drugs and still showed up. Having Hall back as Razor Ramone for one night would be a insane crowd reaction.
You obviously aren't aware of how deep Scott Hall's substance abuse problems go.

Copy and pasted from Wikipedia:

Hall was charged with second degree murder after shooting a man with his own gun (after wrestling it away from him) in an altercation outside of a nightclub. According to Hall, this was done in self-defense. The charges were dropped due to lack of evidence. In a 2011 interview for ESPN, Hall admits killing the man, and says he is unable to forget the incident.


Hall's problems with drugs were made public in the late 1990s, and were incorporated into a controversial WCW storyline.During the storyline, Hall was arrested for keying a limousine while intoxicated outside of a night club in Orlando, Florida, causing $2,000 in damages. Hall's ex-wife, Dana, attributes their 1998 divorce to Hall being unable to control his drug use.


On October 10, 2008, Hall was arrested during a roast of the Iron Sheik, held at a Crowne Plaza hotel in New Jersey. A comedian, Jimmy Graham, had joked, "After The Sheik and Hacksaw Jim [Duggan] got caught snorting coke in the parking lot, his career fell faster than Owen Hart." An enraged Hall charged at Graham and knocked down a podium, then grabbed the microphone from him and yelled about how Graham was disrespecting Hart. Graham described the incident on his MySpace page, claiming that he loved Hart as a wrestler and a man and that he believed Hart would have laughed at the joke. He claimed that Hall was drunk at the time of the attack.


Hall was arrested on May 14, 2010, and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting a police officer. Police were called to the Hitching Post Bar in Chuluota after Hall (who had been "drinking heavily", according to the police report), "became aggressive". When they arrived, they found Hall yelling and cursing at amateur wrestling personalities and bar staff. Hall was told he was not allowed to return to the establishment. In his police statement, Hall described himself as an unemployed professional wrestler, despite having a job with TNA Wrestling (who would release him a month later). After his release from TNA, Hall checked into rehab, paid for by WWE. Hall checked out of the rehab facility in early October 2010.

Weeks after he checked into rehab, Hall had both a defibrillator and a pacemaker implanted in his chest. He was hospitalized twice in 2010 for double pneumonia (affecting both lungs). During this time, Hall started having seizures and was soon diagnosed with epilepsy. He now has to take 11 different medications on a daily basis to treat his heart and seizure problems.


Hall was the only member of The Kliq not on hand to see longtime friend Shawn Michaels inducted to the WWE Hall Of Fame. He had decided not to attend any Wrestlemania XXVII festivities due to his doubts of his ability to remain sober in that type of environment.

On April 6, Hall was reportedly taken to the hospital due to a seizure. Hall's representative, Geena Anac, issued a press release denying he had overdosed, saying that Hall was at home and doing fine that day. Anac said Hall was in hospital that night to be treated for extremely low blood pressure, and that Hall visits his doctor on a regular basis while recovering from double pneumonia, for blood work and checkups.

On April 8, Hall showed up for his appearance at a Top Rope Promotions wrestling show in Fall River, Massachusetts, apparently intoxicated. Hall, still wearing a hospital bracelet, was helped into the ring by two men because he was struggling to walk on his own. He cut a promo and was confronted by local wrestler Gino Giovanni, who was trying to begin his scheduled match with Justin Credible. After the match between Giovanni and Credible, Hall, slurring his words, tried to goad Giovanni back into the ring. On April 9, TMZ reported Hall had been taken to hospital following the previous day's appearance. Hall was treated for cardiac issues and remained in the hospital for three days. According to medical reports, Hall was being treated after overdosing on both opiates and benzodiazepines.

Top Rope Promotions released a statement on April 11, regarding Hall's behavior and performance. Promoter Steve Ricard said Hall had arrived the day before the event in a wheelchair with three bottles of prescription pills in his possession, and had demanded his appearance fee the next day, although he was already paid. Hall allegedly made many threats to the staff, and many demands regarding money and when he would perform. According to Ricard, Hall threatened to kill him if he screwed Hall over.

Longtime friend Kevin Nash commented on Hall's recent problems, saying that he will always be there for Hall. Nash also claimed that Hall is not a drug addict, but rather that he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Eric Bischoff, another of Hall's close friends and former boss, said he wished he knew how to help him, and that he was an amazing talent and a great person, but that his "demons" were killing him.

On May 8, following a worrying and confused telephone conversation with his ex-wife Dana, Hall abruptly ended the call. Dana alerted police to her concerns for his safety, and Hall allegedly had a verbal altercation with them (and her) when they attempted to enter his house. Dana said Hall was "threatening to beat them all up, doing the crotch chop thing to them, making a fool of himself, ranting and raving like a crazed mental person". Following this, Dana cut off all remaining ties with Hall.

Around this time, Scott and his estranged son Cody had a brief reconciliation and Hall began mentoring him to become a professional wrestler. According to Dana, this reconciliation lasted only a month.

On October 20, ESPN's E:60 featured a documentary detailing Hall's experience with drugs and alcohol. It included interviews with several of Hall's family members (including his ex-wife and son, Cody), as well as several prominent figures and close friends from the wrestling industry (including Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, Eric Bischoff, and Stephanie McMahon).


On April 6, Hall was arrested in Chuluota, Florida at around 9:31 p.m., by deputies of the Seminole County Sheriff's office, who did not make the reason for arrest public. The arrest was later reported to be for a domestic disturbance involving his girlfriend, Lisa Howell. Hall allegedly choked Howell while he was drunk. He was taken to a hospital in Seminole County to be medically cleared prior to being taken to a drunk tank. Hall denied the choking allegations.
