After weeks of speculation and plenty of clues, Sting's mystery partner was finally been revealed at TNA GENESIS.
The arena went dark. Mysterious music played while Mike Tenay and Don West speculated who the partner would be. This went on for a good minute. Finally ... "CAN YOU DIGGIT - SUCKA?!"
Sting's partner was the one and only ... BOOKER T!
Booker T came out to theme music that was very similar "Harlem Heat" music that he used until he was crowned King of WWE. Fans in the iMPACT! Zone went crazy and there were several loud Booker chants during the match.
Later on when Karen Angle was getting involved, Sharmel ran down to ringside and fought with Karen Angle, pulling her hair.
Booker T and Sharmel were no longer using their royalty gimmick, which is owned by WWE.
